@wandeljw,
You think it's unproductive to showcase the war crimes of the USA, JW.

JW: In that case, the answer is zero.

msolga: Me, I'm interested in your thinking behind your "zero" conclusion to Robert's question, wandel. Seriously, I'd be interested to know.

@JTT,
I completely explained my reasoning on the thread itself. I see no reason to repeat myself either to you or to any other poster.

Discussion with people who are obsessed about a particular view is ultimately unproductive.


Do you think it's better to be obsessed with the truth or to be obsessed with maintaining a delusion of gigantic proportions, JW?

The average person engaged in discussion is always willing to concede some points and attempt to find some common ground.


Even the average US prosecutor/politician/military guy in the WWII war crimes trials were happy to find common ground. Where it was shown that the US committed the same war crimes, the common ground became, "Well, you can go free in exchange for us not discussing that issue".

Where there was valuable information to be garnered by the US, say, from ex-Nazis or from the leaders and personnel of Unit 731, the same "common ground" was found.

American grant of immunity

After Imperial Japan surrendered to the Allies in 1945, Douglas MacArthur became the Supreme Commander of the Allied Powers, rebuilding Japan during the Allied occupation. MacArthur secretly granted immunity to the physicians of Unit 731, including their leader, in exchange for providing America, but not the other wartime allies, with their research on biological warfare.[10]

Unit 731 was responsible for some of the most notorious war crimes carried out by Japanese personnel.

American occupation authorities monitored the activities of former unit members, including reading and censoring their mail.[33] The U.S. believed that the research data was valuable. The U.S. did not want other nations, particularly the Soviet Union, to acquire data on biological weapons.[34]


What "common ground" might you be seeking, JWWandel?

@izzythepush,
Can't leave London this trip, and actually would prefer not to venture much beyond The City, so maybe next time.

@izzythepush,
Actually I have seen quite a bit of the rest of your country, and prefer it to London, but for now, London is where the money is.

@panzade,
Perhaps, but this doesn't answer my question.

Actually there are only a handful or less of members who engage in back-and-forths with JTT, and who I would not want to place on "ignore." Interestingly enough, none of them have joined this thread.

It occurs to me, therefore, that I should have addressed this with them via PM and not started a thread that would, unfailingly, lead to some form (no matter how mild) of criticism of JTT.

I apologize to the forum.
