Sounds like a good idea dropping them off but why cremate em? Let em have the bits back in a bag!

Well if you want to drop all the bits off you will need a whole lot more aircraft... I guess all you need to cremate a bunch of bodies is a jerry can of petrol and a stack of wood, and they will all fit insode a nice little urn.

Practicality im guessing.

I would like to comment, but I'm afraid my comment is probably too vulgar.  Let's just say, "Let the bastards burn... after being thrown from the plane!!!"

for sure, i understand the political stance.I spose we were tryin to show them we meant business in a nice way not to upset our "humane" fellow earthlings, and yet the allies are still to this day condemned for our actions for what we did to their people 2 years after this incident. so the sayin "pussy footin around gets ya nowhere" still stands in my eyes.  after what those bastards did to our troops..in my mind, they can burn for eternity and i have no remorse for thinkin so.
 
end of my input.

Same here, my Dad fought the Japs in WW2 and would not go to a play my Neice was in (sort of why were we so bad to the Japanese people type tree huger play and appolagie...) you could not explain to her why he would not go, she never did understand what was going on in his mind, he wouldnt even go see "Saving private ryan" when it came out, said it would bring up to many memories that he had worked for so many years to forget.
Not to mention if Mom would cook rice, she would get it stuffed in her face and the hell beat out of her for putting Jap food on His table for him to eat. He did liberate some P.O.W.s on one of the Islands he fought on. and to eat rice to him was one of those triggers for the Deamons to come forth.  Now Mom being Cajun, Well she got her but kicked many times for cooking Rice. Telling a Cajun that you cant eat Rice is like telling a Drunk he cant have another beer, its a staple that your brought up with in Louisianna.
But the thing that gets me is , We as the country that did not start the war! are expected to Appoligize for what we had to do to win it! It Chaps My...... that that mentality is what our solders have to deal with when Our Country sends them off to a war! TAKE THIS RIFLE ... GO TO THIS FORIEGN LAND TO HELP THESE POOR PEOPLE BUT BE NICE TO THE BAD GUYS. it is insaine that some one thinks you can have a nice clean WAR, I'm stopping right now im getting ticked off.

My parents went to borneo a few years back and they saw a former japanese POW camp at sandakan, now a Museum.

There was this jap bloke sittting there looking shattered because he had no idea what went on, that particular part of history from WW2 is conviently glossed over in Japanese history text books.

I understand the Koreans & the Chineese are taking the Japaneese to task on this very issue.

Oh yea! isnt that convenient they and just about any other country that has started somthing in the past all of a sudden has THEIR OWN RECOLECTION OF THE PAST EVENTS. well i guess we as americans cant say much there. look at the civil war, and what we are taught it all started over and then read the book " The South Was Right" cant remember the author,sorry and you relize history is changed to suit who is in charge at the time..... and i can go on and on and on.....

WR:
Remember...history is ALWAYS written by the victors - & Hollywood.
The victors to absolve themselves, & Hollywood to sell it.
Consider this...the Allies committed atrocities, too(But we won so it's a moot point).Ya never hear what WE did wrong.
&...the other guy was told he was fighting fer his home & hearth, too.He loved & was loved by some, too.
If - given any other circumstance they met - they could have bin great mates!
Damn politicians!!
