We remember Bataan today on the anniversary of this horrible, brutal and unkind act by the Japanese. We must never forget the treachery, cruelty and impoliteness of that event. So many brave Americans tried their best to make it bu succumbed along the way as the barbaric, dastardly and rude soldiers of Hirohito laughed and gambled and cursed. May everyone who died there find solace and comfort and bless the family members who still cry every night.

The March is a good reminder that the men and women captured by the Japanese after the invasion of the Philippines was a tragedy of mind-blowing proportions. What the Japanese did and still have not apologized for will live in stone in New Mexico, The Philippines and other states who lost may service men and women. IT is as if the national pride of Japan will not acknowledge the cruelties the Japanese military mindset perpetrated on several thousand men.

No DJ Jessy Fresh we do not love the Japanese government or their military. We have settled into a sort of peace with them over their current lives and not the past. That is something which will take more that three or four generations. Their sense of honor still kills their own people.

I didn't realize women were captured. Were any of them groped, probed or raped like they do in Egypt now?

Who the hell taught you history? Were they as dumb as you are? Look it up on Wikipedia under the Capture of Corregidor. There were Army Nurses with the troops. They were not Marched to death but they were treated worse than the men. Some could not take the torture and treatment and committed suicide by not eating. Others were beaten to death by the Sadistic Japanese Guards.

There you go with Wikipedia again. It's not to be trust as they already reported today that Assad is dead in Syria when he's alive, kicking and biting. I asked if they were probed, not if they skipped a meal. Were you there? Did you see it? If not, you need to stufu and desist.

Sorry but with the Bataan Death march I did not have to go there and look on wikipedia. It was something that was taught in my history classes and in the Navy boot camp. A history lesson that should not have been necessary except for the stupidity and ignorance of General Douglas MacArthur grounding his B17 fleets and fighter planes. Even with the Reading of the "Last Greatest Victory" by Stanley Weintraub would give you the information on the devastation visited upon the heads of the Japanese POW Commanders and how they treated their prisoners. You can read well enough but the book is expensive.

the thing is is that its different cultures, they were feed and treated like royalty before their were to be sacrificed but the problem was , is that they were fed rice which doesn't really fatten you up. it was mainly just a big misunderstanding really , if you think about it.

And that has nothing to do with the Death March. You're talking about something you have no real knowledge about.

I saw a piece about this Death March deal on the History Channel. They said McArthur fled the scene and made a huge spectacle of himself instead of helping his men. He promised to return but only did so after all his men were killed, raped and thrown into prison.

Yeah. and after that he returned to the Philippines and waded from a beach master three times so the film crew could get it right for the world to see. His posterity was more important than than doing his job. He looks the same as Custer did. Winning was everything thing to them and presentation to a crowd was more important then the truth. Putting him in Charge of the Japanese surrender was his master stroke for his own history. Hollywood made a motion picture of him and you could taste and feel the arrogance of the man. But then the West Point grounds always glorify arrogance. He has his own statue there as does General Custer.

A lot of fine Americans, including my father, have been to West Point so I don't take kindly to you impugning them all. There's also a statue of Patton but you probably have a beef with him because he didn't shoot Pancho Villa when he had the chance. You Navy boys need to wise up and remember which branch came first and I don't mean the one on your bunkmate that you gazed at every night when you served at sea. Granted, Westmoreland was a doofus but the Army has produced some of the finest Americans ever, including Ike.

When I was in the Navy, we never ran from anyone. I believe it was because of the camaraderie we developed through our training. One of the drills that I especially enjoyed was affectionately called the "Ball Grab." We would all strip down and stand in a group and then the Commander would turn off all the lights on the ship. Each sailor would then reach and grope int he darkness until he found a handful of meat and then he'd go to town on it. I used to look forward to those nights because everyone cut a slice if you know what I mean. I suggested we do that when I was on the police force but the Captain nixed my idea for some unknown reason.

Patton was a good general and he died to early through no fault of his own. However I hate an egomaniac and both MacArthur and Custer were just that. You also do not have to get nasty in any references.

Patton fought Hanibal and the Carthagenians in a prior life according to Ladislas Farago. He gave those elephant riding savages a good thrashing just like he did the Jerrys in France. It's a damn shame that Blackjack Pershing held him back from shooting that vile SOB Pancho Villa before he raped and pillaged Columbus.
