The Grinch in China

JAPANESE General Matsui Iwane, commander of Tokyo’s Central China Area Army, was convicted of war crimes by the International Military Tribunal for the Far East, then sentenced to death by hanging.

“You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch, You really are a heel, You’re as cuddly as a cactus, You’re as charming as an eel, Mr. Grinch, You’re a bad banana with a greasy black peel!”

Rape of Nanjing (Nanking): “This orgy of crime started with the capture of the City on the 13th December 1937 and did not cease until early in February 1938. In this period of six or seven weeks thousands of women were raped, upwards of 100,000 people were killed and untold property was stolen and burned. At the height of these dreadful happenings, on 17 December, MATSUI made a triumphal entry into the City and remained there from five to seven days. From his own observations and from the reports of his staff he must have been aware of what was happening. He admits be was told of some degree of misbehavior of his Army by the Kempeitai and by Consular Officials.”

“He was in command of the Army responsible for these happenings. He knew of them. He had the power, as he had the duty, to control his troops and to protect the unfortunate citizens of Nanking, He must be held criminally responsible for his failure to discharge this duty.” [International Military Tribunal for the Far East, Judgment of 04 November 1948]

“You’re a monster, Mister Grinch, Your heart’s an empty hole, Your brain is full of spiders, You have garlic in your soul, Mr. Grinch, I wouldn’t touch you with a thirty-nine & a half foot pole!”

The Documents of the Nanjing Massacre were nominated to the International Memory of the World Register and accepted by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. Evidences were recorded in real time during the massacre. John Magee, an American citizen, risked his life to shoot a documentary film on Japanese atrocities. The film was then processed secretly at Shanghai Kodak company, and taken out of China. Later, it was shown in Berlin, London, Washington and other places. [http://www.unesco.org/fileadmin/MULTIMEDIA/HQ/CI/CI/pdf/mow/nomination_f...

John Rabe, a German businessman who represented the China branch of the Siemens Company and lived in Nanjing at the time of the Japanese invasion, kept a diary of his experiences and an excerpt from his December 13, 1937 entry reads: “The Japanese march through the city in groups of ten to twenty soldiers and loot the shops. If I had not seen it with my own eyes I would not have believed it. They smash open windows and doors and take whatever they like. Allegedly because they’re short of rations. I watched with my own eyes as they looted the cafe of our German baker Herr Kiessling. Hempel’s hotel was broken into as well, as was almost every shop on Chung Shang and Taiping Road. Some Japanese soldiers dragged their booty away in crates, others requisitioned rickshaws to transport their stolen goods to safety.” [“The Rape of Nanking, 1937,” www.eyewitnesstohistory.com (2009)]

“You’re a foul one, Mr. Grinch, You have termites in your smile, You have all the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile, Mr. Grinch, Given a choice between the two of you I’d take the seasick crocodile!”

In June 2016, USC Shoah Foundation staff visited China to record 20 testimonies of Nanjing Massacre survivors, among them, Zhou Zhilin: When Japanese soldiers began slaughtering people on the streets of his village, Zhou pretended to be dead and survived, but his uncle who was with him was stabbed to death. Zhou’s wife is also a survivor and appeared with their son on camera during the testimony. [http://www.proquest.com/blog/pqblog/2016/Remembering-Chinas-Forgotten-Ho...

The Japanese Army’s conduct from December 1937 to February 1938 constitutes one of the most barbarous events not just of the war but of the century. [https://www.press.umich.edu/16661/documents_on_the_rape_of_nanking] For instance: One night, with the help of some Chinese traitors, the Japanese soldiers quietly took down the bamboo fence on the south side of the Ginling College hostel allowing several hundred Japanese officers and soldiers to storm in and kidnap over 100 young women...According to Yasumura Saburo’s report, the soldiers who tied up and kidnapped the women were from the Kuroda Detachment...these kidnapped women were subjected to gang rapes...[http://museums.cnd.org/njmassacre/njm-tran/njm-ch12.htm]

“You’re a vile one, Mr. Grinch, You’re a nasty wasty skunk, Your heart is full of unwashed socks, your soul is full of gunk, Mr. Grinch, The three words that best describe you are as follows, and I quote, ‘Stink, stank, stunk’!”

What is the view of the postwar Government of Japan on the incident known as the Nanjing Massacre? “The Government of Japan believes that it cannot be denied that following the entrance of the Japanese Army into Nanjing in 1937, the killing of a large number of noncombatants, looting and other acts occurred. However, there are numerous theories as to the actual number of victims, and the Government of Japan believes it is difficult to determine which the correct number is. The feelings of deep remorse and heartfelt apology for the actions during the war have been upheld consistently by the post-war Cabinets. Such feelings were expressed in the form of the Murayama Statement on the 50th anniversary of the end of the war, and those feelings of remorse and apology were also carried forth via the Koizumi Statement issued to commemorate the 60th anniversary. Such feelings of remorse and apology articulated by previous Cabinets will be upheld as unshakable, which was made clear in the Statement by the Prime Minister issued on 14 August, 2015.” [http://www.mofa.go.jp/policy/q_a/faq16.html]

“You’re a rotter, Mr. Grinch, You’re the king of sinful sots, Your heart’s a dead tomato splotched with moldy purple spots, Mr. Grinch, Your soul is an appalling dump heap overflowing with the most disgraceful, Assortment of rubbish imaginable mangled up in tangled up knots!”

A Philippine city suffered a similar tragedy. “There were no novelties in the Japanese conduct in Manila in February 1945. All of it had previously been seen in Nanking in 1937—the mass killing, the bayoneting, the beheading, the rape, the slicing open of women after being raped, the impaling of babies on bayonets, the gouging out of unborn fetuses from pregnant mothers.

New policy on sale of US weapons

By REY O. ARCILLA | April 24,2018
‘We could benefit from the new policy but for the fact that, as an official of the US State Department said, the US Congress will still have the final say in approving any sale.’
