    Japanese invasion of China and the wholesale slaughter, barbarism and mother of all property damage reaped upon the city of Nanking and and its citizens.

    Here's the link for more info...

    http://www.tribo.org/nanking/

    "Between December 1937 and March 1938 at least 369,366 Chinese civilians and prisoners of war were slaughtered by the invading troops. An estimated 80,000 women and girls were raped; many of them were then mutilated or murdered."

    Bloody gruesome stuff. My apologies if the following pic disturb anyone.

        A good book on the subject is:

        The Rape of Nanking
        by Iris Chang


        Within weeks of entering Nanking the Japanese killed at least 300,000 Chinese civilians.

            The Chinese were not considered fully human, therefore "codes" didn't apply.

              The "code" applied bewteen samurai. And, as quoted above, all others were subservient to the samurai, or sub-human.

              The Japanese had disdain for other militaries, because they felt all warriors should follow the "code". When it was apparent to them that other nations did not adhere, combined with their natural bigotry toward other races, it was all compounded.

              ...we saw the results.
              Retreat hell, we just got here. Every Marine, a rifleman.

              Never let the facts get in the way of the truth.

                After reading The Rape of Nanking I thought a good idea for a movie would be the bits on the German embassy and the work they did to save many of the locals.

                  After hearing about it,Hitler seriously concidered sending troops into China. (Germany was already providing military advisors.)

                    Ive read that the derogatory expression 'gook' was actually a word the Japanese used to describe the (perceived inferiority of) Chinese and Koreans. Its meaning was similar to the racial slurs used to describe American blacks.

                      It's origins lie in the Hangul word "Han-Guk" which means "Korean person." I thought G.I.'s invented it as a slur,tho'

                        I'm sure you are right, however I always thought it derived from the word "Gobbledegook" - as in what the natives spoke.

                        Imagine a ball of iron, the size of the sun. And once a year a tiny sparrow brushes its surface with the tip of its wing. And when that ball of iron, the size of the sun, is worn away to nothing, your punishment will barely have begun.

                          No thats what the cannibals spoke.

                          Seriously though, does anyone fell anything has changed in the past 60 years since events such as this, especially with the creation of the UN and all?

                              On the contrary,Hitler supported Chang Kai Check (sp). Bear in mind,Chang represented a anti-Communist presence on the USSR's southern frontier to say nothing of arms sales to China.
                              (Anyone ever wonder why the Broomhandle Mauser pistol is so popular in China?) In fact,the first credited German KIA was a German advisor who was killed in 1934.
