A propaganda film for 2006
28 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a tutorial film for a people sore afraid. This is both a primer on Japanese people, who deserve love, and Japanese people, who, 65 long and desperate years ago, deserved, an amount of fear. I love the Japanese people because I have no reason to do otherwise. It is not in my benefit to hate Japanese people.I actually love Japanese people because they have a beautiful culture. I love Japanese people because they have Zen Buddhism, which may be a credible religion- or not. This movie is designed to encourage Americans to distrust Japanese people-in the context of the hateful and totalitarian worldwide thrust towards Pacific Ocean domination. This movie is a profoundly well made propaganda film. It has an intense psychological impact. It speaks of the world fomented by the Japanese Imperial Army. The Imperial Army was in fact and in deed a vile force for hatred, genocide and narcissistic stupidity, which produced a world of suffering and pain. It was in fact evil. This movie correctly focused the viewer's attention on the evil and devious-in fact squalid- aim of the Japanese military in its totalitarian goals. The Japanese military was ultimately defeated. Thank you God. Now, we live in peace. It all seems a big misundertanding. The Japanese People had a Big Rising Sun on their flag. We, the Americans, dropped a big nuclear sun on two of their cities. This was a great sad day in human history. It was a great sad day in the history of all humanity. It was a great sad day in all human days. And yet, the Japanese Military suddenly stopped the beheading of three hundred thousand innocents in Nanjing- as if it were a mere accounting mistake. Never hear about the Japanese dedicating a shrine about the 300,000 Chinese disembowelled by the Japanese Army. A Mystery.
