    Re: Japanese students moved by reconciliation trip

    I wonder if the Japanese students would travel to Nanking, China to ask forgiveness there. In just over 5 weeks the troops of the empire of Japan killed over twice as many civilians in that one Chinese city than the total for both nukes dropped on those two Japanese cities.

    Just wondering.

    ...and yes, I certainly hope this is all done with private money.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    they gloss over it in their history books.

    dropping the bomb on the Japanese was the morally right thing to do, they committed crimes against humanity at least as heinous as the Nazis.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    I just posted the following on the news papers web site and my feeling are not alone there.
    Another example of a school system run a muck and failing to teach history. How dare these children think they have the right to offer and apology for our ending the war and saving hundreds of thousands of Japanese lives and a similar number of American lives. I am ashamed of them and feel their teachers
    and everyone connected with this trip needs to be fired. No one has the right to apologize for something they didn't have anything to do with. This is a stupid as as the apology for slavery. No one alive had anything to apologize for.
    When are Parents going to rise up and demand that schools teach the facts and truth and get away from the dumbing down to the lowest common denominator and get back to teaching and holding back children who can't read and get bad grades and then blame it on racism or some other lame excuse for being stupid and spending their time listening to rap music instead of studying. This pisses me off no end.

    while I don't think we should ever dismiss the horrible effects of using nuclear weapons, and should acknowledge it as a travesty; it was a travesty unfortunately forced. The US didn't start that war, nor did we want anything to do with it. We were brought in by the Japanese themselves, I do think it was unfortunate that we had to use the bomb. And we should note from the results of it to not use it less ultimately forced to do so. But in the end, their government started the war, not ours. We were simply looking to get out of the war.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    This just shows that our communist public school system is working according to plan.
