"We can prove that most Americans don't believe in pushing people around, even when they happen to be on top."

"We can show that most Americans believe that religion is a matter of a mans own conscience, and not something to be used for a political shakedown, or to make trouble, or to start wars"

These Americans... what happened to them? They seem nice.

"...most Americans do believe in a fair brake for everybody regardless of race, or creed, or color."

How was that true even back then???

Americans have always believed that they believed in liberty and equality. Also, this is a good case of "judge the audience, not the author".

SolRo - 2009-06-26

You forget how most american soldiers and civilians considered the japanese less than human.

Err, it's pretty evident in the video too.

Toenails - 2009-06-26

SolRo: No, I think that the video said that the Japanese brain is just like any other brain.... if you trained it right.

Okay never mind.

(Don't tell me I was the only one that was kind of weirded out by the video's fixation on brains.)

The brain of the Nipponese
Has a disease!
If we knew where to squeeze
We could cure it with ease!

These Americans never existed and do not exist now. Sometimes I think that language was invented just for lying.

Every word of this is said with psychological intent. The US had excellent internal propaganda in WW2, and this was just the simplest way to transition dumbass grunts from the "Japs are vicious monkeys" mindset of the war to the "Japs are people who were led astray by fascist ideology" of the occupation. It's very clever.

Syd, the dumbass grunts of that war were draftees who represented a good cross-section of American society. They were generally older and better educated than many of today's impoverished volunteers, like the teenage infantrymen I saw poking IEDs with sticks in Iraq.

Also, speaking as a former grunt, I found that to be any good at Infantry shit you actually have to be fairly intelligent; any retard E1 can make a gun go bang, but to rise to the position of Squad Leader (typically E6), who's micromanaging 8 other guys in the most stressful atmosphere that modern Americans can encounter, and to be any good at it at all (ie win firefights and not get your guys killed), you have to have a certain degree of problem-solving ability, managerial skill, charisma, foresight, toughness, and common sense. It's a pretty tall order, and I have seen seemingly-excellent soldiers crack under the pressure of leading combat missions at the Squad level. Most guys can't do it.

er.... when I said "brake", I meant "break".

The Japanese still don't make sense, but at least they haven't started a war again.

Camonk - 2009-06-26

Psht. You're not even trying anymore. Just let the user name die so we can remember fondly when we'd get some decent trolling out of Cena, and not this limp-wristed pabulum. You want to go out on top, don't you? Leave 'em wanting more?

I wonder what the Japanese propaganda films would have looked like if the USA had lost the war.
