wonder if she knows the attack plan was a reused War Games plan sent to japan from Hawaii earlier

... shipped off to an internment camp, where they spent the duration of the war.

And it all happened in British Columbia, Canada.

While the experiences of Japanese-Americans who were rounded up on the West Coast after Pearl Harbor and sent to internment ... Comment?

RE: Daughter of Japanese migrants recalls life in camp
..... During any war it is possible that the enemy had planted agents in the country, and as a precaution during WW2 Canada, as well as the USA, interned (=kept locked up in camps) "enemy aliens". For example read the book
"Deemed suspect: a wartine blunder" by Eric Koch.

The same happens in any war same with the japanesse and the italians and more so the germans so yes i am sadened by some of the treatment they got but it was necessary and a precautionary measure as it was war and there were alot of "agents" that were just common people who were sending messages back home on certain things.

The United States got poetic justice for the internment camps in 1979 when the Ayatollah Khomeini seized our hostages in the Tehran embassy. To be sure, what Khomeini did was wrong and the Iranian regime are religious fascist bullies. I have no sympathy for them.

However, that was boomerang justice from a Higher Power, karma if you will. And what fifty-two whites suffered from Iranian mobs is exactly what literally thousands of American blacks have suffered from Southern lynch mobs and the Ku Klux Klan.

Nonsense. Poetic justice was served when the USA boldly nuked the Japanese for their cowardly and outrageous attack on their genetic superiors.

Your claim is utterly absurd. Either you are misinformed....or you are outright lying. In fact, NO "Japanese Americans" were killed at Pearl Harbor, you dog-eating fiend.
Nuking Japan was a seminal event in human history. It established America as the pre-eminent world power, the leader of humanity and the enforcer of the laws of decency.

You justify the deaths of innocent women and children, and resulting fears of nuclear war during the Cold War? You are one sick f*ck. So do you think a small West Virginia town full of innocent women and children should be nuked by god know's who to even out the playing field.

Are you stoned? The Japanese attacked the USA and waged war against Americans for 4 years. Nuking them saved American lives. The atomic bombings were justified.

Exactly. Moreover, Hitler was already doing research on making an atom bomb. Can you imagine what might have happened if the other side had gotten it first?! The Nazis forced us to make the bomb. The Japanese forced us to use. And after WW Two, the Soviets and now the terrorists have forced us to keep it.
