I was framing a bitter old man post in my head about Anzac Day. I am really fed up with it. Kids and very young men, who were not sacrificing themselves for their country, but going off on an adventure when they were too young and unworldly to understand, sent by self serving politicians and people with vested interests. At least lambs don't volunteer to be slaughtered.
But I won't write such a post.
I will remind you that WWII was not all about us and them. The tragedy was not all about white people, or even Japanese. I direct you to a post by Terra Byte about his grandfather. You don't have to watch the music clips, but the link to Syonan-to educated me about somethings I did not know.
