As I suspected, appart is blue and furry and has an unnaturaly large appetite for flying things and reflective items, like a magpie..He's breaking the game by playing so well it causes a bug which means he becomes a medal & crate hoover.

 

The truth had to come out one day

Akamatsu stunned his superior officers by his conduct. Instead of attending pilot briefings and waiting on the flight line like the other men, he had his own warning system hooked up in a brothel! He often came racing to the air base in an old car, driving like a demon with one hand, drinking from a bottle held in the other. The sirens were screaming a warning as he bolted from the car to his fighter plane, already warmed up by the mechanics…”

I hope that's right, as I hate to think of this guy as a regular visitor to a Japanese WWII military brothel, where all girls were Korean, Chinese, Indonesian and even Western women forced into prostitution ...

Then how about this one, told by the multiple fellow pilots who were present:

 

“Another story involves a wedding ceremony for a fellow pilot. Traditional Japanese weddings are not raucous parties like in the West, but rather solemn occasions in which the bride and groom exchange ritual cups of sake and a Shinto priest presides over the ceremonies. Into this silent, sedate crowd, Akamatsu arrived late, stomping into the hall stark naked and ‘four sheets to the wind’. He had fashioned a ‘grass’ skirt out of torn strips of newspaper which he had tucked into the waist string of his fundoshi (underwear), and he proceeded to stumble through his version of a hula dance, then promptly keeled over in a corner and started snoring in a deep sleep. The family and relatives of the bride were speechless with shock. As for the invited group of IJN pilots, all buddies of the groom, and all quite familiar with Akamatsu’s occasional outbursts of outrageous behavior, it was all they could do to keep a straight face and stop from bursting out in uncontrollable laughter.”

 

...and regarding what you wish to imagine, go ahead and make a saint out of him. But rest assured all of them used Comfort women - and all got away with it :angry:

So Akumastu was a dude, Kinda guy i'd like to go on a drinking binge with.....Booze was his copilot too.

 

Mrs Disco is Japanese and having been together for a very long time I'm quite familiar with the culture of Japan and believe it or not this behavior still happens although mainly reserved after a few drinks businessman can suddenly turn and become quite eccentric,

 

 

I highly recommend Soju (pronounced Shoju) its lovely, like a softer milder Vodka and it definateley makes you take your clothes off at any wedding...

I definitely don't want to make a saint of him ... :unsure:

 

But indeed, the saddest part is all the things the Japanese got away with. Comfort women, beheading captured pilots, chemical warfare, death marches and camps ... the list is endless.

What did the Germans do wrong that they actually had to pay the bill afterwards and the Japanese didn't ?? They still refuse to make amends.

That's not exactly true. The allies (though in this case mostly the US, since it was their main theatre of war) did hold a tribunal in 1946-48 - check IMTFE or Tokyo Trials. Additionally there were other trials held by and in other countries (e.g. China), and all those proceedings yielded more than 1000 death sentences, with a lot more imprisonments. To say that Japan 'got away' is a great overstatement. It did however receive relatively light treatment.

 

In 1948, when the main Tribunal was ending, Cold War was in full swing. USA needed influence in the area, and Japan was thought of in terms of the British Isles during the war - i.e. of an unsinkable aircraft carrier. For political reasons treatment of Japan was a lot less harsh than one might have expected; perfect example is the preservation of the Emperor and Imperial family, albeit with severly reduced powers. Some of the crimes and some of the evidence during the trials was intentionally witheld from public knowledge, some charges were never brought to court, in exchange for stabilizing Japan and assuring it stays safely in the 'proper' part of the world. The most numerous cases were in fact against middle-ranked personnel, and only a few high-ranking military and civil persons were sentenced (with quite a few short-term imprisonment). Many of the officials that were convicted during the trials, later returned to public life and were quite prominent figures in years to come. As said, part of it was the leniency of victors, and part was the Japanese take on the war and who was the victim - which still holds till today (like e.g. secret exhoneration of Tojo and others in the 70' and 80'). It's a fascinating subject, and a rather sad picture of what 'justice' and 'law' mean when circumstances are rearing their ugly heads...

Pretty much what appart said it became expedient to have Japan on side due to the cold war.

And they did get nuked.

 

 

if you've ever seem the comedy film called "the mouse who roared" it pointed out that the allies treated the enemy better than the did the UK which was pretty much bankrupt after WW2.

 

In the film a tiny British channel Islands declares war on the US, hoping to lose and therefore get money as in the Marshall plan. Then they accidentally win.

 

I highly recommend The mouse who roared, Peter Sellers at his finest.
