Japan: The Grateful Generation

People may be familiar with the term “The Greatest Generation,” now almost past, who fought World War II and rebuilt America in the shadow of the Great Depression.

Now there is “The Grateful Generation” — those who were touched by “The Greatest Generation,” their kindness and love in rebuilding the world after World War II. We in Asia and parts of the Middle East have a special place in our hearts for America.

From the graves of brave Americans at Normandy to freeing East Germany from Soviet domination, the United States has been the major force in leading the world for good.

After the end of World War II, General Douglas McArthur put out a call for 10,000 young men and women to help rebuild postwar Japan. Decades of abuse under a terrible dictator began slowly to heal.

My parents came to Japan, separately, from the West, met in Japan, married there, had their family and served the country for nearly 60 years.

    Around 1963 there was a Japanese boy in my class and a German boy because their parent came to Canada in the 1950’s . Nobody wanted to beat them up or behead them .

    But today , the same muslims we die for in their nation to liberate it or stop the slaughters by fellow muslims are coming here as refugees where far too many now want to kill us on our soil.
    We take them in with welfare and job Quota plus free education for their children and they STILL want to kill us and take over Canada for the Caliphate.

    It’s the quran stupid . The same quran used by Justin’s 10 muslims MP’s and the same one used by ISIS, Hamas , Al Shebaab and Boko haram .

    It’s nice that Justin’s muslim MP’s don’t want to kill me , but close to 80% of the mosques support jihad and sharia while 99% of them pray for a victory over us to claim Canada as an islamic state.

    **Watch how a brain-dead Liberal Senator traitor tries to educate a 65 year old Muslim about islam in the middle east over the last 1400 years.
    This POS liberal will be in the history books as an enabler for sharia and pedophilia via the child-brides to emulate muhammad.

    • Canada has a large share of useful idiots populating the political class.

      What makes you think Justin’s muslim MPs don’t want to kill you?

      • Gary

        Well , they don’t want to kill me right NOW because they would go to jail under OUR current laws but not under Sharia.

      The arrogance of that prick is breathtaking.

  • From the article:

    “”Son”, he said, “everything we have is because of Americans. We fought
    against them and instead of harming us, they fed, clothed and rebuilt
    us. If it had been the Russians who had won the war instead, we would
    now be like North Korea.””

    G-d- right.

    Russians went through various countries (including Korea) and raped the women there.

    Who condemned Russia?

    The US stabilised countries and everyone attacks them.

    How is that for a double standard?
