Whatever Happened To Vietnam War?

There are millions of Americans who retain vivid memories of the war in Vietnam. Protest marches on Washington D.C., hippies dancing and singing protest songs and spitting upon American soldiers returning from the horror then known as the Vietnam War. We were told by our government that Communist China was behind the Viet Cong rebels of North Vietnam. We were told that once China gains victory in Vietnam, their troops would sweep over southeast Asia and democracy would be defeated by the forces of Communism. That was then, today is now. Today, American is engaged in economic developments in Vietnam, we even conduct joint military exercises with the Vietnamese. Of course, the Republic of Vietnam is currently engaged in a violent conflict with Communist China over who controls the South China Sea– particularly its fish and potential oil resources.\

During the past few weeks Vietnamese ships have been involved in conflicts with Chinese ships and now the prospect of a $1 billion oil rig has inflamed the people of Vietnam. Yesterday, thousands of Vietnamese attacked an industrial park which has numerous foreign factories. They looted and torched ten factories which they thought were owned by Communist Chinese industrialists. It turns out the factories were owned by Taiwanese industrialists. The Communist Vietnam government is now drawing close to the capitalist American and Australian governments in order to thwart economic goals of the Chinese Communist government. I trust this now clears up the prediction that once Americans left Vietnam, the area would be taken over by Communists!!

Ignorance Of The Youth

Justin Bieber is a celebrity and he is a young man with a modern education. That statement is enough to provide evidence that Mr.Bieber is an ignorant individual who believes “the past” refers to what he did last week. After spending the past five years teaching at St. Louis Community college sites it is clear to me that if ignorance of history was a virtue, 90% of
modern youth would wind up as saints in Heaven. Someone told Mr.Bieber that the Yasuksini Shrine in Tokyo was a place in which love of humanity was central to its existence. He visited the shrine and then posted pictures with the caption, “thank you for your blessing” on his Instagram page. I assume someone with intelligence gasped in shock at the pictures and explained to the ignorant young man this shrine was dedicated to Japanese soldiers who had murdered and raped during World War II. Justin did remove the pictures..

I doubt if Justin has any idea who fought in World War II, let alone what happened. The Japanese army murdered over five million Chinese people. In the city of Nanking they raped at least 80,000 women and forced thousands more in China and Korea to serve as “comfort women.” Gee, Justin, have you ever considered reading a book???

Anyway, Justin is no more insensitive than Japanese Prime Minister Abe who is certainly no “Honest Abe” when it comes to defending Japanese murder and rape.

Latest On MH370

For some strange reason, the CNN constant coverage of the missing MH370 flight has not been continued every moment of the day and night. After all, we still have not seen every square mile of the Indian ocean, and few images have been displayed about the Atlantic ocean or the Mediterranean Sea. I am disturbed at lack of reporting about strange noises that I heard coming from a strange car that followed me into my apartment complex. I distinctly heard a “ping noise” emanating from this car. Why no follow up? I realize they are searching for a “black box” but I have yet to hear any mention of a “yellow box” or an “orange box.” How come there is only concern about a “black box?” I suspect this is simply another piece of evidence that when a crime is committed one should look in the direction of “black things of folks.”

Angus Houston, who does not come from the city of Houston, Texas, is in charge of the search for this black thing that sends out a “ping” sound. There are unconfirmed reports a ping has been heard in waters near the city of Perth in Australia. I am shocked that CNN did not have a morning discussion as to the significance of this ping sound. I so miss those pert blond haired girls on Fox News who so love to pretend they know something about ping sounds. Of course, most of them believe the ping sound is proof that someone is playing ping pong.

Anyway, this is the absolute latest from Angus Houston: “There has been no major breakthrough in the search.” Great news. Why? Because he did NOT say there was no minor breakthrough in the search!

Remember The Murderers

The people of Japan has transformed their society in dramatic ways since the conclusion of World War II, but there is one aspect which remains locked in the past. Japanese leaders insist their nation was the VICTIM in World War II, nor the force which led to the death of millions of innocent people. Japan seized Korea early in the twentieth century and ruled with brutality in order to stamp out the very essence of Korean society. During World War II, thousands of Korean women were forced to become prostitutes in the service of Japanese soldiers, and the Japanese continue to insist, they did this voluntarily. Japan invaded China in 1937 and the ensuing war led to the death of millions as well as the brutal rape of over 50 thousand women in the city of Nanking. Japanese school books continue to insist their nation has no apology for these actions because America and other nations caused the wars and forced their soldiers into these actions.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe continued the path of arrogant behavior by visiting a memorial which honors Japanese soldiers who died during World War II. His visit to the Yasukuni memorial infuriated Japan and South Korea which regard such action as refusal to acknowledge the horror of Japanese action during the war. The Chinese government bluntly noted, “strong indignation at the Japanese leader for trampling on the feelings of the people of China.”

It is time Japanese educators visit Germany and learn how a nation confronts the horror of its past.

Why Do We Care About MH370?

I confess to the crime of devoting my efforts and blog to disseminating information regarding the story of a plane that fell from the skies somewhere in the ocean, and perhaps we will discover the location of watery graves–eventually. We humans so enjoy a mystery. Our entire lives are filled with mystery. We really have no clear picture as to how we got to this planet and the process that led to we becoming thinking life creatures. The essence of our existence is a mystery. For example, from whence comes the Big Bang? If there is nothing, then how does something emerge from nothing? Is there another universe which led to creation of this universe? Who knows and it is doubtful if we will ever learn the truth of our existence. So, when a story comes along that is a mystery wrapped in a mystery what else can we do but become fascinated?

The most mysterious aspect of this story is failure on the part of Fox News or Senator John McCain or Ted Cruz or the Tea Party to point some finger of blame at President Obama. Did his weakness and timidity in the face of terrorism inspire a pilot to crash the plane knowing Obama would not do anything? In the end of MH370 we simply must uncover a way to blame Barack Obama and Obamacare for this tragic story!!

I await the film which undoubtedly will have a Muslim terrorist seize control of the plane and some gallant American thwart the plot. Now, about the happy ending??

Horror That Is North Korea

Any attempt to write about the regime of North Korea is akin to writing about the Holocaust. In both cases, the lack of any semblance of respect for human life is the most noted characteristic of leadership. Whether Adolf Hitler or Kim Jong-un is the center of attention the end result is the same, there are people we encounter in our lives who simply lack any feeling of human compassion and believe death and brutality are organizing principles for human life. A United Nations report on North Korea notes that for over sixty years the government has engaged in a non-stop war against its OWN PEOPLE. Families are sent to jail, children along with parents, they are starved and worked to death for normal human behavior which the government defines as “acts against the state.” The UN urges that North Korean leaders be charged with crimes in the International Criminal Court.

A Chinese delegate to the UN argues the report is unfair. “The inability of the commission to get support and cooperation from the country concerned makes it impossible for the commission to carryout its mandate in an impartial, objective and effective manner.”

For once, the Chinese are correct. How in God’s name could any normal person who investigates anything about the North Korean government’s behavior toward its own people fail to display disgust?

Where Are They, What Happened, And Why?

I have been in constant contact with very informed sources in Malaysia concerning the so-called missing plane which is somewhere in Asia, we think. According to my sources, it is clear:

1. Vladimir Putin might be the cause of this entire episode.

2. The Israel Mossad secret service could be responsible since there was not a single Jew on the plane! Coincidence?

3. George Bush, Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld are possible suspects since they are masters of screw ups and this plane mystery is one big screw up.

4. Why hasn’t Ted Cruz attacked Obama for the disappearance, does it suggest he has something to do with it?

5. The Chinese government is upset because 153 passengers were on the plane and since no dissident was among them, then there is anger in Peiping.

6. Senator John McCain has volunteered to fly a jet to search for the missing plane,and promises not to get shot down and become a prisoner again.

7. Barack Obama wants the world to know this disappearance has no connection with the Affordable Care Act.

8. According to Fox News this episode is simply another example of what happens when you give people food since it enables them to live and take over planes.

Go To Chinese Court-Guilty!

There definitely is some good news about the system of justice in the land of China. Let me highlight the strong points of Chinese justice:

1. There are courts in China.
2. There are judges in China.
3. There is a prosecutor in the court room.
4. There is a defense attorney, sometimes, in the court room.
5. There is a person known as the “defendant.”
6. There will be a trial.
7. There will be a decision made as a result of the trial.

Now, the other side:

1. Last year in China there were one million, six hundred thousand cases that were heard. Of these cases, in 199.9% of the verdicts it was GUILTY AS CHARGED.
2. Only in 825 cases was the defendant found to be INNOCENT.

Let me emphasize that in China the duty of the court system is that the rights of the defendant are always paramount. It is crucial to prevent a defendant from going home to his sordid apartment when he can get three meals a day and a place to sleep and pay-NOTHING.

Xinjiang By Any Other Name Is Xinjiang

There is now overwhelming evidence that terrorist attacks on people in a Chinese railroad station came from the western province of Xinjiang and those carrying out the assault were Muslims who belonged to the Uighur minority. Unfortunately, the Chinese government just does not grasp how Chinese official, Zhang Chunxian, told members of the media it was clear the outbreak of terrorism had nothing to do with policies of the Chinese government. Who or what was to blame? For those who do not understand why terrorism finds roots among people, it is difficult for them to grasp that origin lies with THE INTERNET! Zhang informed one and all that “more than 90 percent of Xinjiang’s terrorism comes from jumping the firewall and accessing internet videos to create terrorism.”

In other words, most folk are not terrorist and just love the Chinese government which does not allow them any religious freedom, but once they see VIDEOS then their minds turn away from love toward China and turn to hate! Just listen to Zhang who in response to a question as to whether Chinese acts of violence toward Muslims might not be a cause of terrorism replied: “Will it(terrorism) not take place if you do not take a strong stand?”

Another Chinese Tale

It is now proven what this blog said days ago that gunmen who murdered dozens of people in a South China railroad station were members of separatist groups in the western Chinese area of Xinpiang province. The six men and two women were out to prove that China’s policy of restricting the religious rights of Muslims in western areas of China was the wrong policy at the wrong time if the nation was to finally create a multicultural world in which those of differing religious beliefs could live in peace and harmony. The Uighur minority of Xinpiang province want the right to practice their Muslim faith and they want the right to practice their cultural ideas. Communist China still does not grasp that in the modern world, multicultural groups should be embraced, not persecuted.

The Communist regime of China has done wonders in creating a modern industrial world. It has now reached the point of entering the post industrial world. In this world, communication of ideas must be freed from government controls and respect must be given to all within society regardless of their points of view.
