Sex-Slaves: Are Korean men Cowards, and sons of Cowards?
Were Korean Men Cowards during World War II?
A vexing question
There are growing, unsubstantiated questions about whether the Japanese Imperial Army kidnapped 200,000 sex-slaves (Comfort Women) in World War II. Mostly from Korea.
A $30 million US Government Study specifically searched for evidence on Comfort Women allegations.
After nearly seven years with many dozens of staff pouring through US archives -- and 30 million dollars down the drain -- we found a grand total of nothing.
The final IWG report to Congress was issued in 2007. (Linked below.)
Nobody should be writing about Comfort Women issues without reading this report cover to cover.
Many of the unsubstantiated claims are coming from Korea. Korean allegations have led to unexpected twists.
At the time, Korea was part of Japan.
Many Koreans were members of the Japanese military. So any allegations that the Japanese military kidnapped 200,000 women implies that Koreans were involved in kidnapping Koreans. This is an uncomfortable reality.
This becomes even more uncomfortable.
So today, South Korea constantly accuses Japan of kidnapping these shiploads of women.
Imagine how this boomerangs back. ROK is saying that Japan kidnapped uncounted tens of thousands of women from Korea as sex-slaves. Yet there is no evidence that Korean men fought back.
During the war, Korea had a population of about 23 million. Today, Texas has a population of about 26 million.
Imagine trying to kidnap 200,000 Texas women. There would be a bloodbath. The Army would lose thousands of soldiers, and thousands of civilians no doubt would have been slaughtered in return.
Evidence would be everywhere. Photos. Films. Battle sites. Texans would never allow 200,000 women to be stolen and raped without making a river of blood. So the Korean government is saying Korean men during World War II were a bunch of cowards.
Also imagine this from the perspective of a Japanese military General or Admiral. He is at war with the USA, Australia, Britain, China, and more. His hands are full. The USA in particular is on the march with our Navy and Marines, and we are smashing Japan anywhere we can find Japanese.
All generals always want more troops and supplies. That is a fact of life. Just ask any General. Ask any business leader what he or she needs to expand or defend against competition: They always want more resources.
What kind of fool General would dedicate the resources to kidnap, guard, transport, and feed 200,000 women, knowing that he is creating yet another war to fight, all while losing the war that has existential consequences.
The Japanese were highly advanced military thinkers. They made their own submarines, airplanes, and aircraft carriers. These were serious people, and super smart.
There is no way that Generals would dedicate those resources to kidnapping women when the US military and allies were marching down their throats. They had a war to fight -- this was not Spring Break.
Any serious military or business person can see the folly in common sense of kidnapping 200,000 women. It does not make sense, and would have created a new war in Korea -- which was a base for Japanese recruitment. Koreans were fighting Americans. Koreans were our enemy.
Back to Korean men: It would be horrific to see the US Army try to kidnap 200,000 Texas women -- especially so considering that many US military members are Texans, just as many Koreans were Japanese Soldiers.
Texas would rise up and start smashing the Army. Bridges would blow up. Soldiers would be shot every day. Bases would burn. The Army would fight back and there would be total war.
So are we to believe that Korean men are such cowards that nobody lifted a hand to defend their women? Because if they allowed these many women to be kidnapped, they are cowards, and their sons today had cowards for fathers.
The reality is that we know that Koreans are no cowards. Koreans are a courageous people. So what really happened? It is clear from source documents, and the common sense that there was no mass kidnapping.
It is all a lie. And no matter how much someone hates Japanese, it will always be a lie. Hatred is not evidence.
Everyone who repeats this lie is a stooge for North Korea, China, and Korean, Japanese and western leftists.
Here is a small inventory of media who repeat this propaganda that is designed to split alliances between ROK, USA, and Japan: CNN, BBC, Washington Post, New York Times, Asahi Shimbun...more. The normal gang. Do you trust these outlets? How do you view their slant?
Bottom line: Korean men who continue to tell this story are parrots or cowards.
Please read the IWG report that practically nobody seems to know exists. If you do not have time for the whole report, do a search inside the report for Comfort Women, and carefully read those parts:
Korea -- CNN is sitting atop a massive story, yet they are either too dull or too compromised to get it. I spent much time talking about this topic in Seoul with two CNN reporters last year. It seemed to fly right over their heads. It was like talking with petrified trees.
They believe what others have reported and that is that, despite that massive evidence -- and proof -- practically laying at their feet that this is a gigantic fraud and information operation.
The evidence that this is all a big scam is truly massive. CNN (different crew) made similar massive errors with Thai reporting during the troubles. They cuddled right up with the side doing terrorism.
It's like this: imagine I take a CNN crew into a jungle and, "Hey, there are elephants around here. They are stealing pineapples from poor farmers who are angry." And they say, "How do you know?"
"I know how they smell."
"Are you a Beagle or a writer?" Asks CNN
"Look, there's a pad print. There's another. See where they go to the river?" I say.
"What are you now, Tom Brown the tracker?" asks CNN.
A villager walks up, saying be careful, there are wild elephants see and they steal their crops.
"Look. Elephant dung. Right there by its foot prints." I say.
"That's from water buffalo," says CNN.
"Huh? Water buffalo have hooves," I say.
A loud elephant screech comes from the jungle.
"Those elephants are very close. That was loud," I say.
The villager walks away quickly.
"That was something else," says CNN, shaking its thick CNN head.
"See that sign? It says CAUTION, WILD ELEPHANTS. WILD ELEPHANTS CAN BE DANGEROUS"
CNN shakes its thick head again, "Where is your proof that there are elephants here?"
"Follow me," we walk deeper into the jungle, "See how the jungle is smashed down here. What could have done this? Look. Small trees are flattened." Another elephant screeches close by. Loud cracking noise coming from the jungle.
CNN shakes its thick head, saying, "Water buffalo."
We walk into the jungle and find 10 elephants, "Look, there are the elephants," I say.
"Where? I don't see them. You are imagining this," says CNN. "Do you hate elephants? Do you have something against elephants?
"Wha?" I say, wondering if they have been smoking CNN dope. "Take out your camera and make video," I say. They make video.
Later that night, on the news, CNN reports, "Circus in town at Chiang Mai. Rightwing, nationalist villagers harass elephants for sport."
Back to reality, CNN reporting on the 2014 and 2010 fighting in Thailand literally was that bad. No hyperbole. I was there, as were countless Thais and foreigners. We saw the fighting. We were there just as much, and in my case much more than CNN. We saw what really happened, and the lies they told around the world. It was amazing.
Likewise, this sex-slave scam is so obvious, and so readily provable, that if they have not gotten it by now -- they would not know an elephant if it steps on their CNN foot.

New book: "Wartime Military Records on Comfort Women"
Respected British author and journalist Andrew Salmon calls it, "A highly useful compendium of original research."
The book is important, but even more interesting is the author, Archie Miyamoto. Archie is one of the most interesting people I know. He is 88, lives in California, grew up in Japan during World War II.
Later, Archie joined the US Army, did two combat tours in Korea, and two more in Vietnam. (How many people do you know who went back for second tours in Korea?)
A bare summary of his life -- there is much more:
After Japan with the 187th, returned to Fort Bragg then volunteered for flight school. After graduation, Archie went on vacation to the west coast. Driving through Arizona by the Superstition Mountains, picked up a hitchhiking prospector who said he needed help to dig out a buried Spanish gold mine so Archie went into the desert with him and caught a lung infection from a desert fungus.
Archie served with the 2nd Armored Cav and the 4th Inf Div as an aviator but spent most of the time in and out of hospitals. Total of two years in bed in an Army hospital to recover. After returning on duty, Archie asked to go and finish college which had been interrupted by the Korean War.
Soon after, he went back on duty, was sent to Germany during second Berlin crisis. After he got back from that, was sent to Fort Rucker, AL, not for a refresher course on flying but as an instructor pilot. That explains Germany. And, Archie told me, why so many pilots crashed in Vietnam.
On his first tour in Taiwan, in addition to getting the Chinese Army fifty of the US Army recon helicopters which were replaced by turbine powered OH-6’s, Archie was the project coordinator for the production of Hueys in Taiwan.
He got two Purple Hearts, was awarded three Legion of Merits, the Distinguished Flying Cross, Bronze Star, over a dozen Air Medals, plus others, Master Aviator Wings, Combat Infantryman's Badge, Jump Wings, and Chinese Army Aviator Wings.
The book that he is written here is worth the read, but what I really want is a biography!
