The Pacific theater may not directly pertain to the Holocaust, but it is still important to cover. Highlighting America’s atrocities in Japan reveals the motivation for the Allies, especially America, to fabricate and perpetuate the biggest atrocity of them all: the Holocaust.
It is no secret that Japan’s “surprise” attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 was used as a catalyst for America to enter WW2. Yes, I used scare quotes on “surprise.” Sure, the public and the affected soldiers were surprised, but since the war, it has come out that government officials, including Roosevelt, knew that an attack was imminent. This is something that even mainstream sources like The Telegraph have admitted (see image below). Yet for some reason it keeps on being called a surprise attack.
Japan did not attack for no reason at all, but if you were a student in an American school, that is what you would think since no reason is ever given. If you are to actually look up why Japan attacked America you might get something like the following mainstream version:
“The U.S. and Japan had been butting heads for decades and it was inevitable that things would eventually culminate into a war. Japan had imperial ambitions to expand to China to solve some demographical and economical problems and to take over the Chinese import market. When in 1937 Japan decided to declare war on China, America was very against this aggression and responded with trade embargoes and economic sanctions. Specifically, the oil embargo that America organized with the British and the Dutch was a thorn in the side for Japan, which imported 90% of its oil. Without oil Japan’s military could not function and all war efforts would come to an end. Negotiations had been going on for months between Washington and Tokyo, without any resolution, so Japan decided to attack first.” (My emphasis added.)
What mainstream historians won’t emphasize is that the oil embargo on Japan was basically an act of war because it would have left Japan unable to defend itself. The Allies provoked Japan into attacking America so that Roosevelt could gain public support to enter WW2 officially. (The US had already been effectively a belligerent in the war for years in the form of material aid to the Allies.)
When it comes to warfare in Asia, American General Curtis “Bombs Away” LeMay did not sugarcoat what he thought. The following are some of his more famous, and brutal, quotes:
“There are no innocent civilians. It is their government and you are fighting a people, you are not trying to fight an armed force anymore. So it doesn’t bother me so much to be killing the so-called innocent bystanders.
Killing Japanese didn’t bother me very much at that time… I suppose if I had lost the war, I would have been tried as a war criminal.
We went over there and fought the war and eventually burned down every town in North Korea anyway, someway or another, and some in South Korea too.…
Over a period of three years or so, we killed off — what — twenty percent of the population of Korea as direct casualties of war, or from starvation and exposure?”
LeMay went on to enjoy a long military career and was awarded many honors. Apparently it was perfectly fine for LeMay to say these things about Asians, but could you imagine if Hitler had said anything like this about Jews? It would be never-ending fodder for “bad things evil people say” listicles on clickbait websites.
The anniversaries of the atomic bombs being dropped on Japan recently passed, August 6th and 9th. Like Dresden, the purpose for the bombing was to was to kill as many people as possible to break morale and force a Japanese surrender. Unlike with Dresden, however, the Americans had an experimental superweapon.
As evidence for the want of mass destruction we can turn to a document from May 10, 1945 that proposed various targets for the nuke. This is what was said about Hiroshima:
“This is an important army depot and port of embarkation in the middle of an urban industrial area. It is a good radar target and it is such a size that a large part of the city could be extensively damaged. There are adjacent hills which are likely to produce a focusing effect which would considerably increase
the blast damage.”
A quote from Mike Peinovich about the atomic bombings:
“A May 31st meeting of the Interim Committee effectively decided to bomb the center of a civilian city. The committee was a joint group that included civilians, most notably Jewish scientist Robert Oppenheimer. Oppenheimer is currently the subject of a major motion picture celebrating his achievement of massacring hundreds of thousands of innocent people while ushering in a bold new era of nuclear terror to the entire world. Matt Damon plays General Leslie Groves, who was also a member of the committee and who endorsed bombing the center of Hiroshima. In the trailer for the film Damon and the actor playing Oppenheimer exchange witty banter about a weapon capable of murdering millions of people.”
The minutes from the May 31st meeting say this:
“The Secretary [Stimson] expressed the conclusion, on which there was general agreement, that we could not give the Japanese any warning; that we could not concentrate on a civilian area; but that we should seek to make a profound psychological impression on as many of the inhabitants as possible. At the
suggestion of Dr. Conant the Secretary agreed that the most desirable target would
be a vital war plant employing a large number of workers and closely surrounded by workers’ houses.”
To wrap things up, I’m going to quote Peinovich once again:
“The bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki together killed around 200,000 civilians. In this case, again it was the Allies and not the Germans who were incinerating bodies without a trace. The gruesome results of these self-admitted terror bombings can be read about in the US Strategic After Action Summaries. Overall about 1 million Japanese civilians were murdered in WWII, most from incendiary or nuclear bombs. These are the worst war crimes in history, but they are deliberately made to appear as mere trivialities and sometimes even as justified by the myth of the gas chambers and the 6 million.”
You can read the entirety of Peinovich’s opening statement in PDF form here. I highly recommend you do so. It is a beautifully constructed statement against the official Holocaust narrative that fabulists tell. Once again, here is the link for the Holocaust debate that this opening statement was for. If you enjoy Peinovich’s work here, I suggest that you check out his speeches on the National Justice Party’s website.
