Do you still believe that so-called the Nanking Massacre  (or the Rape of Nanking) actually happened in December 1937?  To be honest, I too had believed ‘the Nanking Massacre’ blindly until just 7 or 8 years ago.

As I remember, when Ishihara Shintaro, the current governor of Tokyo was still a Diet member in the mid-1990s, he commented in an interview with mass media, “I know it is said that the Japanese Army committed the Nanking Massacre.  But the Nanking Massacre is not a historical fact.  This is a hoax by China.  Japan’s image was badly tarnished by this hoax.”  I watched the news on TV.  I remember that I barked at TV in anger then, “What!?  Ishihara Shintaro is also going to deny America’s atomic bombing?  Denying Nanking is tantamount to denying Hiroshima and Nagasaki.”   I suppose that some of the people who believe the Nanking Massacre have the same experience in saying or thinking as I said to TV then.  I thought about what caused such a reaction to denial of the Nanking Massacre.  Why do you think I said that denying the Nanking was tantamount to denying Hiroshima and Nagasaki then?  Why do you think I thought about war crimes in sets with Hiroshima/Nagasaki and Nanking?  Why do you think I got angry at Ishihara’s comment then?

I think this is a kind of conditioned reflex to denial of the Nanking Massacre.  For example, I associated Hiroshima and Nagasaki with Nanking.  In addition, I felt righteous anger toward the person who denies the Nanking Massacre as if I represented justice in the world.  It’s my guess that I was imprinted a kind of conditioned reflex in my subconscious mind somewhere (at school, in movies,  at museums or through mass media).  This is a kind of brainwashing.   Therefore, whenever I attempt to appeal for atrocious and inhuman acts of atomic bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, someone counter-argues that atomic bombings were paid the penalty for the Nanking Massacre.  So to speak, the Nanking Massacre is often used for the purpose of avoiding blame for atomic bombings,  and is used for the purpose of preventing Japan from being the true victim of WW2.

The rise of the internet has increased opportunities to enlighten Japanese Internet users about historical truth which have been hidden by left-leaning mass media.  As a result, it has become known that China has been spreading lies about the Nanking Massacre to the world.   Over the past dozen years or so, Tanaka Masaaki, Kitamura Minoru, Higashinakano Shudo, Ara Kenichi and other many Japanese historians have inspected each single photographic evidence that China is presenting to prove Japanese soldiers’ atrocities in Nanking.   For example, China is presenting many photos as evidence of the Nanking Massacre.  The total number of photos that China is presenting is 143.  Surprisingly, it has been revealed that all 143 photos that China is presenting as photographic evidence turned out to be fake or utterly irrelevant to the Nanking Massacre.  That is, there is not a single photographic evidence of Japanese soldiers’ atrocities in Nanking.  However, China keeps presenting these fake photos as evidence at the Nanjing Massacre Memorial Hall opened in 1985.   Higashinakano Shudo’s inspection on 143 photographic evidence was published as a book in January 2005.

I think you are still half in doubt.  I hope you are not upset.  Please bear with me for a moment.  Furthermore,   when Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao visited Japan in April 2007, ‘Committee for the Examination of the Facts about Nanking’ published open letter to Jiabao.  The open questions are follows.
1) The late-leader Mao Zedong never mentioned the Nanking Massacre.
2) Between December 1, 1937 and October 24, 1938 the Chinese Nationalist Party Government (Kuomintang) held 300 press conferences with foreign journalists in Hankou.  But the Chinese Nationalist Party never mentioned “citizens being massacred in Nanking,” or “hostages being murdered unlawfully”.
3) According to the record published as a book by the International Committee for the Nanking Safety Zone (Ernest Forster, John Rabe, Lewis Strong, Casey Smythe, Eduard Sperling, George Fitch and so on) in 1939,  the population of Nanking stood at 200,000 prior to the Japanese occupation. This population level remained unchanged during December. Records show the population to be 250,000 one month after the Japanese occupation of the city began.
4) What is more, in this book published by the International Committee for the Nanking Safety Zone, there is a list of detailed complaints against the Japanese army’s criminal activities. The list includes a total of 26 murder incidents, of which only one case was witnessed but it was judged to be a lawful killing and thus noted in the book.
5) Numerous photographs said to be proof of the Nanking massacre are being displayed in books and at many exhibitions including the Nanjing Massacre Memorial Hall in Nanking. However, it has been revealed by scientific studies that there is not a single authentic photograph offering proof the massacre actually happened.

China claims that more than 200,000 people including ordinary citizens were killed by the Japanese army for two months after the fall of Nanking in December 13, 1937.  There must have been a giant pile of dead bodies if it is true.  However, not a single corpse has been found yet.  I know some corpses are exhibited in the Nanjing Massacre Memorial Hall.  But those corpses have not been examined into the cause of deaths.  Where did this Memorial Hall bring those corpses from?

Do you know the Katyn Massacre?  The Katyn Massacre is a hair-raising historical incident that more than 20,000 Polish officers were killed by Stalin-era Soviet military in 1940.  This incident was exposed to the world by Nazi Germany which found out massacred corpses of Polish officers near the forests of Katyn in February 27,  1943.  Nazi Germany investigated the cause of those deaths and strongly condemned Soviet for Katyn Massacre as follows.
1) Ropes which were used to bind corpses turned out to be Soviet-made.  Ropes were tied the Russian knot.
2) Some corpses had bayonet scars.  This bayonet turned out to be the Soviet military’s.
3) It is estimated that those Polish officers were killed around April of 1940 from issued date of Russian newspapers which a lot of Polish corpses had in their pockets.
4) Bullets shot into corpses turned out to be Germany-made.  But Nazi Germany proved that bullets had been exported to Poland and Soviet before 1939.
After the war, however, Soviet tried to frame Germany up for the Katyn Massacre at Nuremberg Trials (1945-1946) even though Soviet committed and knew it.  It had been regarded as taboo to get to the bottom of the Katyn Massacre in Poland under Sovietized socialist regime (1945-1989).  In 1990, Gorbachev Administration of Soviet disclosed documents that Stalin ordered the Soviet military to kill Polish captives.

Do you understand the differences between Katyn and Nanking?  First of all, a murder case needs a corpse or a dead body.  The Nanking Massacre is believed as a kind of mass murder. However, the Nanking Massacre is mass murder which is supported only by eyewitness testimonies.  To find out a dead body is the first step in the investigation of a murder.  So it is natural that the people, who want to get to the bottom of the Nanking Massacre, should find out corpses of victims first.  Because there are a lot of eyewitness testimonies of the people who saw Japanese soldiers’ atrocities in Nanking 1937, right?  Why the people, who want to get to the bottom of the Nanking Massacre, don’t try to find out corpses based on eyewitness testimonies?  I know the Nanjing Massacre Memorial Hall exhibits corpses.  But why the Memorial Hall keeps refusing to accept Japanese investigation team?  It seems that China doesn’t want get to the bottom of the Nanking Massacre even though China is eager to produce propaganda movies about the Nanking Massacre.  Therefore, I always describe the Nanking Massacre as Victimless Murder.  The crucial difference between Katyn and Nanking is the difference between historical fact and hoax.

In a moment of cool-headed, it becomes clear that the Nanking Massacre is a questionable story.  Why do you think I got angry at Ishihara’s comment a dozen years ago?  Why I lost my cool then?  Because I was brainwashed and I had been implanted aggression (=righteous anger) against denier into my mind to prevent from cooling down. When and where was I implanted it?  And more, there is a very important thing that we forget about China.  This is the true genocide, the true holocaust and the true ethnic cleansing are ongoing in China now.  We must not forget more than 1.28 million Tibetan people were killed for the past 60 years since 1949 that China took over Tibet.  I think that the hoax of the Nanking Massacre is a distraction that China threw to the international society for the purpose of distracting the world’s attention from the Rape of Tibet.

P.S. – August 28, 2010

Please check the video below.  (*It is not my account.)  This is the Video titled “the Fake of Nanking” that I uploaded to YouTube in May 2007.  I produced this video to expose the fake of the Nanking Massacre that America and China fabricated for the purpose of setting Japan up as the hideous rogue nation in wartime.  America produced a wartime propaganda movie titled “the Battle of China” (directed by Frank Capra, 65 min) to foment American people’s hatred toward the Japanese people in 1944, when WW2 was near its end.  In the Battle of China, there is the scene, where the mysterious soldiers who look like Japanese soldiers,  shoot two persons to death as Japanese soldiers’ atrocities in Nanking.  The scene where the mysterious soldiers shoot two persons to death was exposed as Kuomintang soldiers (KMT or Chinese Nationalist Party) to the public.  Moreover,  the scene where Kuomintang soldiers shoot two persons turned out to be a part of “the Shanghai Document”  (directed by Yakov Bliokh,  54 min) that was produced as a documentary movie (in the former Soviet Union in 1928.  What is more, Frank Capra trimmed away the part of Kuomintang soldiers from the film of “the Shanghai Document”,  additionally,  Frank Capra inserted the footage of a Japanese officer’s crying “Hajime!”(=start in Japanese) into this scene to make this footage look like that Japanese soldiers’ atrocities.  The Nanking Massacre is believed to have happened in December 1937.  Why do you think Frank Capra used the 1928 Shanghai’s footage as a 1937 Nanking’s footage in the Battle of China?  Because there was no footage that proved the Nanking Massacre when Frank Capra produced “the Battle of China” in 1944.  So he had no alternative but to make up the scene of Japanese soldiers’ atrocities with trimming away the footage of Kuomintang soldiers from the Shanghai Document.

P.S. – August 30, 2010

I know there are a lot of the people (self-proclaimed survivors) who witnessed Japanese soldiers’ atrocities at the time in Nanking.  I know there are some former Japanese soldiers who give testimony that they massacred Chinese civilians, too.  I know there are plenty of testimonies.  However, we should understand that testimony is testimony, testimony doesn’t have the same meaning of evidence and testimony always needs to be verified its credibility.  We should think back on what happened during the height of the Cultural Revolution (1966-1974) in China.  It is the age of madness.  Chinese people criticized each other and injured each other’s reputations by telling lies to survive under the fierce power struggle.  It is said that more than innocent 30 million people were framed up by others’ false accusations, were put on mockery trial by anonymous tip or testimonies, and most of them were executed for crimes they did not commit.  The more we know about Chinese history, the less we can believe Chinese people’s testimonies.  We should understand the racial characteristic of Han Chinese.  We should understand how incredible Han Chinese people are.  Do you think I am racist?  I think you want my opinion about why there are former Japanese soldiers who testify that they committed atrocities against Chinese people. So let me tell my opinion as follows.  If a person gives testimony relating to what the Japanese Imperial Army committed against the enemy or civilians,  he needs to give out identifying information (name, birth date, birth place and so on) and attached unit of the Japanese army.  Because their testimonies have effects on the Japan’s and Japanese ancestors’ honor.  However, almost former Japanese soldiers, who give testimony that they massacred Chinese civilians, always tell irresponsible lies about their identifying information.  Who can believe testimonies of self-proclaimed former Japanese soldiers who never clearly identify themselves?

Yasukuni Shrine – 3 what did they die for? August 13, 2010

I watched a YouTube’s video that a Canadian named Pierre Pariseau said rude words against Tamogami Toshio (the former COS of Air Self-Defense Force ) and made a small trouble in Yasukuni Shrine on August 15th last year,  the 64th anniversary of the end of the Pacific War (=the Greater East Asian War).  Pierre Pariseau suddenly and provocatively said to Tamogami Toshio who finished his speech and was being interviewed by a cable television, “You would be arrested for unconstitutional if you were German. What do you think?”  A few Japanese, who were listening to Tamogami’s speech,  got angry at Pariseau’s rude words against Tamogami. 

I understand why these Japanese got angry with Pariseau. But I was a little disappointed at behaviors of these Japanese to shout furiously at this Canadian.  They should understand that this Canadian said rude words to Tamogami deliberately as a provocation and they responded to his provocation as he had expected.  We Japanese should understand that over 9 out of 10 westerners living in Japan have the same ideas about Yasukuni issue or Tamogami’s controversial essay as this Canadian.  Pierre Pariseau has written negative articles about Yasukuni Shrine for ‘The Japan Times’ two or three times.  The people who got angry with Pierre Pariseau should recognize almost westerners, especially the Allies’(America, Britain, Australia and so on.) people have stereotype that they Allies fought against inhuman Fascism states 65 years ago and liberated the people from it.  Therefore, if the person who denies or argues against the Allies’ historical perspective appears in front of them, they routinely try to label him/her as historical revisionist like Pavlov’s conditioned reflex. The word ‘Uyoku (Right Wing) ‘ is the term applied in place of ‘historical revisionist’ in Japan by foreign press. Almost westerners who try to label him/her as historical revisionist or Uyoku don’t want to debate on history with him/her from the beginning.  So Pierre Pariseau intentionally had a shit-eating grin on his face after saying a rude word against Tamogami and this Canadian hurried away from Yasukuni Shrine. It is obvious that the goal of this Canadian was only provocation against the Japanese intending to make them angry.

Actually, I too had the similar stereotype about Yasukuni Shrine to Pierre Pariseau until just a few years ago. It was 6 years ago that I visited Yasukuni Shrine for the first time.  Before visiting Yasukuni’s Yushukan (military and war museum),  I too thought that Yasukuni was Militarist Shrine.  I had a lot of negative image of Yauskuni such as black vehicles right-wing campaigners making poisonous and intense noises.  However,  I entered Yushukan and stood in front of over 6000 portraits who died in the war,  and as I read each and every one of farewell notes that so many people’s left,  I found ‘the true human dignity’ in farewell notes and understood what they died for.

What do you think they died for? I suppose you will answer “For the Emperor (Tenno)!” if you have the above-mentioned stereotype.  There are so many farewell notes to their families. These farewell notes speak to you why they fought at the risk of their lives and what they desperately tried to protect  They had things that are worth risking their lives! They had things that are worth giving their lives! Their wives,  their daughters,  their sons,  their mothers and their hometowns.  Even if they shouted,  “Tenno Heika Banzai! and died at the front,  their hearts were always with their families until the last moment of their lives.  More important for us,  these farewell notes speak to us that they entrusted Japan to future generations and died. Who are future generations that they entrusted ‘Japan’ to?  Naturally, we can never ignore the last wishes of the people who sacrificed their lives for Japan.  However,  if the people who died for Japan in the war see the reality of today’s Japan,  if they see the emotionally-disturbed society such as children kill their parents or corrupt politicians get hooked on women and money,  I’m sure they would be disappointed and lament over today’s Japan.  It is consequence of 65 years that the Japanese people have been turning their back on Yasukuni Shrine since the end of the war.  I realized I had been thankless Japanese when I read farewell notes at Yasukuni.

As you may know,  it has become controversial whether voting rights should be given to permanent foreign residents or not in Japan’s political world.  I would like to propose that the Japanese government should give voting rights to 2,466,532 people who are enshrined as ‘spirits of the war dead’ at Yasukuni first,  prior to giving voting rights to foreign residents who came to Japan by their own self-interest.  We must never forget that 2,466,532 people died for Japan and entrusted Japan’s future to us who live in the present.  The 65th anniversary of the end of the Greater East Asia war will come soon.

65 years ago today, for the first time in the history of humankind, the nuclear weapon was used against innocent civilians by America.  65 years ago today was Monday. At 1:30 am, early on Monday morning, August 6th in 1945, America’s B-29 bomber, the Enola Gay left Tinian Island in the western Pacific. At 8:05 am, the Enola Gay reached the sky over Hiroshima. 10 minutes later, at 8:15 am, the Enola Gay dropped the world’s first atomic bomb on the center of Hiroshima which had a population of 350,000.

We should focus attention on the day and time when America dropped the atomic bomb. 8:15 am. and Monday morning… Why did the Enola Gay carry out the world’s first atomic bombing at 8:15 a.m.? Why did the Enola Gay drop the atomic bomb on Monday morning? American Army knew Japanese schools held morning meetings on Monday morning. 8:15 on Monday was the time that schools started morning meetings. American Army knew school children would round up in schoolyards for morning meetings at 8:15 am. Therefore, American Army set the time of dropping the world’s first atomic bomb at 8:15 am, on Monday, August 6th. For what? To kill Japanese school children efficiently and to crush all hope in Japan’s future. As a result of America’s atomic bombing, 140,000 people out of 350,000 citizens of then Hiroshima died. Most of 140,000 people were children, women and elderly people. They suffered and suffered, and died in great agony. It is obvious that America carried out genocide against the Japanese people on the pretext of ending the war.

Only 3 days after the atomic bombing on Hiroshima, the world’s second atomic bomb caused the further humanitarian tragedy for innocent civilians of Nagasaki. American Army dropped new type of atomic bomb different from the bomb that they dropped on Hiroshima 3 days ago. 70,000 people out of 240,000 citizens of then Nagasaki died. While American Army dropped ‘uranium-type bomb’ on Hiroshima, they dropped ‘plutonium-type bomb’ on Nagasaki. America succeeded in developing two different types of atomic bombs. America carried out the experiment of two different types of atomic bombs on hundreds of thousands living human bodies in the confusion just before the end of the war.

Some people, especially Americans say, “The atomic bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima ended the war. These two atomic bombs saved millions of lives that would have been lost through a long lasting war.” This is delusive sophistry to justify America’s hideous crime against humanity. 

The people who believe that these two atomic bombs ended the war should recognize that America prolonged the war intending to drop atomic bombs on Japanese cities by presenting unacceptable terms of surrender against Japan. The people who believe that these two atomic bombs ended the war should recognize that there are rules even during wartime. America’s atomic bombing obviously violated the Hague Convention that prohibited attacks on civilians. The people who believe that these two atomic bombs ended the war should recognize that there are many people who still suffer atomic-bomb disease now, 65 years after the war. The people who believe that these two atomic bombs ended the war should recognize that there are the people who are called “children of atomic-bomb victims”. Why they who have no relationship with the war 65 years ago have to suffer atomic-bomb disease?

Atomic bombing is the worst war crime against humanity in human history. But American Presidents have never once visited Hiroshima or Nagasaki. No more Hiroshima, No more Nagasaki. Pearl Harbor once again!

Yasukuni Shrine – 1

65年前の今日、人類史上はじめて、アメリカによって核兵器が一般市民に使用されました。65年前の今日、1945年8月6日、月曜日早朝の午前1時30分、アメリカのB29爆撃機、エノラゲイは西太平洋上のテニアン島を飛び立ちました。。午前8時05分、エノラゲイは広島上空に到達、その10分後の8時15分、エノラゲイは35万人の人口を持つ広島の中心部に、世界ではじめての原子爆弾を投下しました。

私たちは、アメリカが原爆を投下した曜日と時刻に着目すべきです。8時15分、そして月曜日であったことを。なぜエノラゲイは8時15分に、世界最初の原爆を投下したのか?なぜエノラゲイは月曜日に原爆を投下したのか?を。アメリカ陸軍は、日本の学校が月曜日の朝に朝礼を行うのを知っていました。月曜日の8時15分という時刻は、学校が朝礼を始める時刻です。アメリカ陸軍は、午前8時15分には、生徒たちが朝礼のために校庭に出ることを知っていたのです。それゆえに、アメリカ陸軍は、世界最初の原爆投下時刻を8月6日月曜日の午前8時15分に設定したのでした。なんのためか?効率よく日本の子供たちを殺すためです。そして、日本の将来への望みを打ち砕くためでした。

アメリカの原爆投下の結果、当時の広島市民35万人のうち14万人が死にました。14万人のほとんどが子供たちであり、女性であり、お年寄りの人たちでした。彼らは苦しんで苦しんで、もがきながら死んでいきました。アメリカが、戦争終結を口実として、日本人を大量虐殺したことは明白なのです。

広島への原爆投下からわずか3日後、史上2番目の原爆が長崎の一般市民に対してさらなる非人道的な惨劇をもたらしました。アメリカ陸軍は3日前に広島に投下した爆弾とは異なった新型の原爆を投下したのです。当時の長崎の24万人の市民のうち7万人が亡くなりました。アメリカ陸軍は広島にウラン型原爆を投下する一方で、長崎にはプルトニウム型原爆を投下したのです。アメリカは2つの異なるタイプの原爆の開発に成功していたのです。アメリカは、終戦間際のどさくさに紛れて、数十万人の生きた人間に対して、この異なる2つのタイプの原子爆弾の人体実験を行ったのです。

ある人たちは言います。特にアメリカ人が言います。「広島・長崎への原爆投下が戦争を終わらせたのだ。この2つの原爆が、長引く戦争で亡くなったであろう数百万人の生命を救ったのだ」と。これは、アメリカの身の毛もよだつほど残忍で非人道的な犯罪を正当化するための欺瞞に満ちた詭弁なのです。

2つの原爆が戦争を終結させたと信じる人々は、アメリカが原爆を日本の都市に投下する目的で、故意に日本に受け入れ難い降伏条件を突きつけ、戦争を長引かせたことを理解すべきです。2つの原爆が戦争を終結させたと信じる人々は、戦時下においてさえ、守るべきルールが存在することを知るべきです。アメリカの原爆投下は明らかに、一般市民への攻撃を禁じたハーグ条約に違反します。2つの原爆が戦争を終結させたと信じる人々は、終戦から65年経った今なお、たくさんの人々が原爆症に苦しんでいることを知るべきです。2つの原爆が戦争を終結させたと信じる人々は、被爆2世と呼ばれる人々がいることを知るべきです。65年前の戦争とは関係のない彼らが、なぜ原爆症で苦しまなければならないのでしょうか。

原爆投下は、人類史上最悪の非人道的犯罪です。しかし、アメリカ大統領は一度たりとも広島や長崎を訪ねてはいません。ノーモア・ヒロシマ、ノーモア、ナガサキ。パールハーバー、ワンスアゲイン!

田母神論文-侵略か否かにこだわるほど自虐史観 January 1, 2009

douzou1ふたたび田母神航空幕僚長の論文の話。実は、私はこの論文を自分の声で朗読し、バックにNHK大河ドラマ「風林火山」の千住明の音楽に合わせてビデオでも作ろうとしていた(笑)。だから、何度も何度も暗記できるほど、この論文を読ませていただいた。正直言って、もうすでに暗記してしまった(笑)。

「アメリカ合衆国軍隊は・・・これをアメリカによる日本侵略とは言わない・・・」何度も読み進めていくうちに、どうも言い訳がましい文章だなと思い始めた。そして徐々に、私は「日本が大陸を侵略したか、しなかった」なんてどうでもいいじゃないかという感想を持った。さらに最終的には、日本が大陸に侵攻しアジアを征服したことこそ日本人の歴史的偉業であり、それを現在に生きる日本人は誇りとすべきだという確信に至った(笑)。

日本人の多くが「侵略か否か」にこだわるのは、中国に事あるごとに「日本は中国に侵略した。侵略したことを認めよ」と繰り返し非難されてきたからであって、その中国の言う「侵略」という言葉の裏には、中国自ら行っているチベット・ウィグル・内モンゴルへの本当の侵略(武力侵攻と略奪)を正当化し、さらには日本の過去の揚げ足をとってあげつらうことによって、日本からの中国に対する非難をかわすことにあるのだ。であれば、中国に対しては「お前らが主張するような略奪なんてしてないぞ。お前らがチベット・ウィグルでやっているような人道に反する民族浄化など毛頭やってはいない」と反論すればよい。それでも五月蝿く言うのであれば、「ウルサイ、黙れ。70年も昔のことでウダウダと、なんとも女々しい奴だ。味噌汁で顔でも洗って出直せ」と一喝してあげればよい。少しは日本人に図太くマッチョな性格(男らしさ)が必要だと思う。

alex「日本が侵略国家だったか否か」といった議論はあまりにくだらない。たとえ「侵略」の要素が少しばかりあったとしても、そのことで周辺のアジア諸国に対して謝罪する必要もないし、また日本人が少しも負い目を感じることは毛頭ないのだ。眼を日本から外へ向ければ、東ヨーロッパ・バルカン半島にマケドニア共和国という国がある。マケドニア人はかつてペルシャ東方遠征を行った古代マケドニア王国のアレクサンダー大王(紀元前336 – 紀元前323)を民族の偉大な英雄として称えている。マケドニア人たちはアレクサンダー大王の話になると眼を輝かして古(いにしえ)の侵略の歴史について語り始めるのだ(笑)。しかしながら、実はアレクサンダー大王はマケドニア人ではなくギリシャ人であったのだが・・・(笑)。napoleaon2またフランスの英雄ナポレオン・ボナパルト(1769- 1821)などはヨーロッパを征服し、さらには広大なロシアの奥くまで進撃しモスクワまで占領した。これがナポレオン戦争であり、ナポレオンが征服したヨーロッパでは王政を倒し、ヨーロッパの諸民族にフランス革命の理念である自由・平等・博愛の理念をばら撒き、のちに諸民族が民族主義国家として成立していく近代の歴史的偉業を達成したのである。

日本人の多くの人たちも、アレクサンダー大王とかナポレオンを歴史的英雄と認めるでしょ?であれば、なぜ、その同じ日本人が、欧米列強によって植民地とされ過酷な搾取が行われていたアジアを征服し大東亜共栄圏を築き、アジア人を白人たちの植民地支配から解放し、アジア人としての誇りと勇気を与え、民族自決の精神を根づかせた日本人の先人たちを誇りに思い、英雄と呼ばないのか!?日本人が築いた大東亜共栄圏という新秩序は、アレクサンダー大王の東方遠征やナポレオン戦争と匹敵するほどの歴史的偉業だったのだ。実は中国もアメリカも、日本人がこの大東亜共栄圏という歴史的偉業について誇りはじめることを一番心配しているのだ。「正義」を振りかざし自らの暴力を正当化してきたアメリカにとってはきわめて都合が悪く、またアジアのリーダーに君臨したい中国にとっては「アジアを解放したのが日本」となってはまた困るのである。だから、アメリカも中国もアジア各地で「日本は60数年前の侵略戦争のために嫌われている」というプロパガンダを流し続けてきたのだ。

ningyoなぜ、多くの日本人は「侵略は悪い」とか「戦争は悪だ」とか言いつつも、NHK大河ドラマの信長・秀吉・家康の「国取り物語」や武田信玄の「風林火山」をウキウキした気持ちで毎週観ていたのか!「侵掠すること火のごとし」などいう文句は日本ではすでに放送禁止用語ではなかったのか!(笑)実は人間というのは、特に男性にとって戦争での英雄の「勇ましい」姿は、ある種の人間が本来生まれ持っている「本能」をくすぐるのである。五月人形を見てみよ。鎧・兜を身に付け、キリッとした眉と鋭い眼光を持つ男子の顔に私たちは何を感じるだろうか?五月人形の持つ「勇ましさ」に自分の子供も「この武者のように勇ましくあれ、強くあれ」との親の願いが込められている。なぜ人々は、戦国武将の馬に跨った勇ましい銅像を駅前に立てたりするのだろうか。その勇壮な武将の姿が町の誇りであり、郷土の自慢であるからに他ならない。ならば、戦後行われてきた「平和教育」とやらは何だったのか。「戦争は悪いことです」「人殺しは絶対に駄目です」「暴力はいけません」「過去の過ちを反省しましょう」「日本人は過去に悪いことをしました」「軍国主義はいけません」・・・。これらの言葉が、子供が生まれながらにして持っている「勇敢さ・勇ましさ」への憧れをすっかり奪っていったのではないか。だから、いまの日本人、特に20代は小粒ぞろい、器が小さすぎる。日本は上から下までネズミの心臓・ノミの脳みそを持った奴ばかりだと思う。日本人は過去の戦争にもっとロマンを持って語っていいんじゃないか。おそらく反日左翼と中国・朝鮮は、「歴史を美化するな」と言うだろうが(笑)。それは彼らのやっかみというもの(笑)。そもそも人類の歴史など、その大半が戦争の歴史なのだ。食うか食われるか、凄まじいほどの弱肉強食が繰り返されてきた歴史であり、そしてその弱肉強食は決して過去のものではなく今も続いている。その弱肉強食を戦いぬく「勇ましさ」と「たくましさ」を今の日本人は取り戻さなければならない。戦争でたった一度だけ負けたぐらいでうつむいている暇なんてないぞ。「次回は世界を征服してやるぞ」ぐらいの強い気概を持とうじゃないか(笑)。

daitouwa私は思う。現在、田母神論文をテーマにメディアで議論している政治家もコメンテーターも右と言われる人も左の人も、実は平和教育によって洗脳された自虐史観を引き摺っているのではないだろうかと。「日本がかつて侵略国家だったか否か」なんて議論なんてする必要などないのだと。そして、もし中国が執拗に「侵略を認めよ」と言ってきたなら、日本人は地球儀を撫でながら語ればよい。「こんなに広大なアジアを侵略した日本の先祖はなんて偉大なのだろうか」と。それだけで、中国の執拗な追求は一瞬にして収束する。06年8月15日に小泉純一郎元首相が靖国神社へ堂々と参拝したときのように。

証言は証言であり、ただちには証拠にはならない。言うまでもなく、証言には2通りあるからだ。ひとつは、ただの作り話、虚言。もうひとつは、合理的裏づけのある証言である。合理的裏づけのある証言のみが、証拠となり得る。言わゆる「人的証拠」である。

証言は常に、その信憑性(真偽)を問われなければならない。その証言に、十分な合理的裏づけのある場合に限り、その証言は、はじめて「人的証拠」となる。

証言の信憑性は、証人の身元・素性、動機や背景(証言による利益・不利益)、物的な証拠などによって
客観的・総合的に吟味される。そして、その信憑性が理にかなったもの(合理)であると判断された証言のみが「人的証拠」と呼ばれる。

71年前の南京攻略戦に参戦した旧日本兵は、すでに、平均年齢90歳を超えてしまった。平成19年12月、東京・九段会館で南京攻略戦を語った旧日本兵9人のうち、すでに2人が亡くなられた。

歴史は記憶である。記憶が消えるとともに、歴史も消える。時間はもう残されていない。旧日本兵の生の言葉を、いま記憶せよ。

[いわゆる南京大虐殺は、死体なき殺人事件である、被害者なき犯罪である。]

We Japanese know that there are several ‘self-confessed ex-Japanese soldiers’ who testify that the Imperial Japanese Army committed atrocities against Chinese soldiers and civilians at ‘so-called Nanking Massacre’ (1937). However, it is a fact that there are many ex-Japanese soldiers who testify that Nanking Massacre never happened, while there are several ‘self-confessed ex-Japanese soldiers’ who testify that Nanking Massacre happened.

Testimony is only testimony. Not all of testimonies are evidences. Testimony is always required proof. Testimony is always required rationality and credibility. We can describe only ‘testimonies which have been supported by rationality and credibility’ as personal evidences (antonym: physical evidences). A man tends to believe whatever he wants. We should always hear their testimonies from an objective perspective.

It’s interesting to note that ‘so-called Nanking Massacre’ is a victimless murder. There are ‘self-confessed ex-Japanese soldiers’ who testify that the Imperial Japanese Army committed atrocities against Chinese soldiers and civilians at ‘so-called Nanking Massacre’, however, the dead bodies that Japanese soldiers are suspected to have massacred have not found yet. Nanking Massacre should be called ‘a victimless crime’ or ‘a victimless murder’.
