vertigo867 said: You are a great artist with tremendous talent. But it baffles me why you are portraying Japanese Kamikazes as fun loving people. Pearl Harbor was one thing, but I did notice that you are from the Philippines. The Japanese tortured your people tremendously during WWII. Not to mention killing thousands. It is kind of like a Jewish artist portraying a Nazi as a fun person.

well i don’t know about that. i mean, from our point of view they were the enemy. but from their point of view we were the enemy. it doesnt mean we aren’t people who can have fun. It’s just looking at the actual people in a different light. The non-war side.

I agree that the soldiers had a fun, human side, but at the same time I gotta echo vertigo completely – would not expect a Filipino to be the one to bring it out. But to each his own yeah? Still, all of y’all saying that the Japanese were no worse than the Allies need to educate yourselves: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_war_crimes. Everyone was attacking each other’s civilian populations, but the stuff that the Japanese and Germans did to people in their labor and death camps had no equivalent on the Allied side. Nothing even close.

I think I’ll just hold out for a reprint of Goodnyt!

You need to educate yourself with legitimate sources, not Wickipedia my friend. Try a book like Howards Zinn’s “A peoples History of the United States” or James Carrol’s Constantine’s Sword, What the Japanese did is no different than what the United States has done in the past, or the catholic church for that matter. Given the appalling history of how we treated the native americans, it is quite disturbing that no one has a problem sporting the American flag.

Just because you don’t know about about it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. It’s not a coincidence your not going to read about the horrendous things the United States has done in history text books controlled by those in power.

Griff81 I have served 10yrs in the United States Army. I have risked my life on several occasions to protect my Country from terrorists that have the same mindset as the Kamikazes from WWII. I cannot let you bash my Country because you are so ignorant not to be able to understand that there is a price you have to pay for Freedom. You have no clue what Freedom costs. Your profile states you are from the USA. Millions of brave US soldiers have died to protect your sorry ass now get the hell out of my Country if you are going to speak that way about it.

lawl, you are one very poorly misinformed individual. You were “defending your country” because you had orders to. When thr joke is on you, the US government is up to their neck in greed and you are the sheep being herded around doing their dirty work. Stop kidding yourself and lift your head out of the sand. Hurray your patriotic, but still illiterate if you cant research and understand the extreme reality surrounding you.

BTW – There was no evidence pointing 9/11 to Al-Qaeda, Bush even admitted it. So please, stop acting like your not a victim of his trigger-happy personality.

Buhbye!

Ahhh… yes, yes, the common “if you don’t like this country than get out you unappreciative traitor.”. a typical response from a so called patriot.?

So let me ask, where you risking your life for your country or your government? Or have you ever stopped to ask that question? All the soldiers you speak of didn’t die for their country, they died for their government… there is a big difference, and if you don’t know that, I feel sorry for you.
The soldiers are fighting for a government bent on hegemony, they are fighting in a war that is the result of an Bush’s adopted policy of “anticipatory self-defense” that is alarmingly similar to what imperial Japan employed at Pearl Harbor. There is no freedom being fought for, only Americas quest for global dominance. A preventive war( not preemptive) resulting from the new doctrine of the US completely ignoring international law. Which basically states the US will rule the world by force, and if there is any challenge to it’s domination-whether perceived in the distance, invented, or imaginary, than the United States will have the right to destroy that enemy before it becomes a threat. And Dwight D Eisenhower once said that “Preventive war was a invention of Hitler”

Have you actually deluded yourself into thinking that the government, the ones in power, sitting in their 7 mansions throughout the country are doing what is in best interest for the average citizen, that they actually care. Even at the beginning of our country when the constitution was written they did no take into account the American Indians, slaves, working people, women of any class or color. “Since the founding of our nation to present day, the government has generally legislated on behalf of the wealthy, has done the bidding of corporations in dealing with working people, and has taken the nation to war in the interest of economic expansion and political ambition” – Howard Zinn

The V.A. reported 10 yrs after the Gulf War., 200,000 of the 600,000 veterans filed claims with Veterans administration for disabilities they had suffers as result of weaponry US was using in the war. This shows that a government ruthless about what it does to other people is just as ruthless about what it does to it’s own citizens, that it is a government that uses soldiers as pawns.

Now if you had bothered to look at the Declaration of Independence you would see that it makes a clear distinction between the Government and the people. It says “ Governments are artificial creations established by the people with the obligation to protect certain ends: the equal rights of all to Life, Liberty and pursuit of happiness” and “ whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it…” So surely if I have the right to abolish a government I believe to be destructive I most definitely have the right to criticize it or it’s policies if I deem them destructive. So then patriotism would be supporting the values the country is supposed to be supporting, and when our government goes against that it is being unpatriotic itself.

Or I guess you would rather I shut my mouth, my eyes and ears and just do like I am told like a good little boy, never question anything, follow blindly and obey. Believe and do whatever the government says? Is that your idea of being a patriot? Should I be a “good American” like the “good Germans” who stayed silent, claiming total ignorance of the crimes be perpetrated by the state. Is that your idea of a patriot?

And what exactly did I say that upset you so bad? Do you deny that the United States has committed a great many atrocities in the past? Do you not know of these, maybe your education is to blame… or do know of and recognize these atrocities took place, and just think they are justifiable because the U.S. committed them. We( U.S.) can do no wrong… and if we do we definitely can’t talk about it. . Is that what you are suggesting?

You might want to re read some history books. Should leave the country because I pointed out these atrocities? Or do you support the mass murders of Native Americans and desolation of their culture and the stealing of their land? Or maybe you think we should just forget about it since it was in the past and go on living on borrowed land like it never happened?

This freedom you speak of, does that include freedom of speech?.. or does that only hold true if it agrees with what you believe, if it is supportive of the United States? Another thing I don’t understand, and please explain this to me.. if I don’t like certain things about our country, or disagree with certain injustices being perpetrated, your telling me I should just run away and leave the country instead of stay and try to make a difference., change things for the better.

The Constitution does not grant rights, it recognizes them. Rights that every human being has, not because they live in the United States but because they simply exist.

You can’t seriously think the war in Iraq has anything to do with freedom? How does anything going on in Iraq or Afghanistan have anything to do with my personal freedom. Please draw a direct correlation for me. Take your time. Us a flow chart if that will help and post it for all to see.

Also Please explain to me what mindset it is exactly that the terrorist share with the kamikazes ? Is it they hate our freedom? Or is their mindset the same as yours?… “kill the enemy” ?

There is no difference between you and any other loyal soldier in any other war, except you’re on opposing sides. Your both soldiers taking orders, handed down, never questioning or even knowing the real motives, blinded by your patriotism. You just happened to be born on a different piece of land, if you were born in Japan you may have well been a Kamikaze during WWII. You think you have the moral high ground, but all soldiers do is follow orders, whether it is right or wrong depends on which side your standing on when the bomb drops.

These wars we wage are on ordinary men, women and children, inhabitants of villages being bombed simply because a enemy may be nearby.

You my friend are the epitome of everything that is wrong with this country. With a misguided type of patriotism that is morally dangerous and will foster arrogance and self-righteousness and will encourage the view that Americans as such are worthy of special respect, an archetype of American Exceptionalism, the notion that the US is different from and better than all other nations on the planet.

My intention is not to diminish any compassion for the victims of 9/11 but rather enlarge that compassion to include victims of all terrorism, whether perpetrated by religious fanatics, or US politicians. Which could span include the 500,000 children that died in Iraq by US imposed economic sanctions, than take into account the close to 100,000 Iraq civilians that have died as a result of the OCCUPATION in Iraq

Ignorance… ignorance is bliss they say.. And unfortunately I am not so blissful. I’ve done a great deal of research and read a great number of history books in the process of writing my dissertation on how History is taught, and how it should be taught for my Masters, so you could say I am somewhat versed on history, the real history that took place, not the ethnocentric, ludicrously vague, misleading patriotic propaganda is force fed down our children’s throats for 12 years which breeds blind nationalistic patriotism. A patriotism that is it’s own religion inspired by fear and ignorance, to be followed blindly with unwavering dedication. We should be patriots to the human race, citizens of the world. This misleading education starts with Christopher Columbus and spans to 9/11, making sure as they tell it to “inspire the children with patriotism, tell the truth optimistically and must speak chiefly of success” rather than tell the truth so that our children can begin to thing critically and make their own decision whether our country is deserving of their respect or not.
So you will be happy to know that when I finish with my Doctorate of Social Justice Education I will be teaching American History to make sure I can keep as many of our youngsters from turning out like you, blissful.

In closing some words from Emma Goldman:

Indeed, conceit, arrogance, and egotism are the essentials of patriotism. Patriotism assumes that our globe is divided into little spots, each one surrounded by an iron gate. Those who have had the fortune of being born on some particular spot, consider themselves better, nobler, grander, more intelligent than the living beings inhabiting any other spot. It is, therefore, the duty of everyone living on that chosen spot to fight, kill and die in the attempt to impose his superiority upon all others.

I’m well aware of the atrocities in the U.S.‘s past and the things we do today in the name of “security,” but I was limiting the comparison between countries to just the WW2 era. Before and after the war, yes the allies did some horrible things. After all the eugenics movement and Anti-semitism didn’t exactly originate in Germany. And after the war, the Europeans went right back to brutalizing their colonies, while large swathes of the U.S. fought tooth and nail against the civil rights movement. But during the war itself, there was nothing that the Allies did that compared to the Holocaust or Nanking. Even the stuff they did after pales against what the Germans and Japanese did in their death camps. Perhaps the genocide of Native Americans was on that scale, but that was the product of an earlier, more violent age, not the 20th century.
