"One death is a tragedy,one million is a statistic" - Stalin
Shall we talk about the Baton Death March? Or how the Japs tortured and killed many thousands, including women, children and G.I.'s in their prison camps with NO mercy or remorse? In many ways, they were worse then the Germans.The Japs were viscous dogs back then and needed to be stomped. So, we stomped them. Boo fricken Hoo.
The only reason we didn't nuke Germany is because of two reasons.
1. Hitler ran out of fuel and was pretty much a non threat by the end of the war.
2. The Russians claimed dibs on them. That was the deal Stalin made with Churchill.
If it was anything like the Bataan death march, it must have been pretty nasty.
Close to home,,,that one,,,
The Bataan Death March had a large impact on the state of New Mexico. Eighteen hundred New Mexico soldiers from the 200th/515th Coast Artillery of the National Guard were deployed to the Philippines in World War II. Only half these soldiers survived, and within a few years after the war almost one half more had died. The New Mexico National Guard Bataan Memorial Museum is located in the Armory where the soldiers of the 200th and 515th were processed before their deployment to the Philippines in 1941. Every year, in early spring, a rigorous 26.2-mile march/run is conducted at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, in honor of the service members who defended the Philippine Islands during World War II. As of May 2012 there were 60 survivors, 31 of whom reside in New Mexico. Many of these survivors were teens at the time and had lied about their ages to gain entry into the military.
