On a lot of the sites that I post on, people inevitably say when I mention 'Unit 731' or ANYTHING to do with Japan during the second world war ... 'That was over 50 years ago. Time to forget'. I wish it could be so easy. You see, due to the Official Secrets Act, the revelations about what actually occurred during the war have been sealed to the world and have only JUST come out from behind the 'veil of secrecy'. Individual Chinese citizens have been trying to sue the Japanese government for things done to them during the war for over 50 years however the Japanese courts have been allowed a peculiar defence stating that there is 'no evidence'. Actually, there is evidence, it is just sealed. Unit 731, the 'Mengle-esque' unit responsible for biological and chemical experimentation was not even acknowledged to have existed until the early 1990's by the Japanese Supreme court but the government itself refused to acknowledge its activities. Due to the veil of secrecy being lifted, this is some of the information that is coming to light: http://www.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-bin/getarticle.pl5?nn20050815a1.htm What do you think? Should we forget? Should we really ignore what happened as a result of Japan's activities? Ishii is said to have killed 12 times the number of victims of Mengele and yet he was PAID for his information by the US government.
