Disagree.

The occasional robbery, mass rapes and rape-murders committed by GIs were certainly not good, SCAP's censorship of news related to criminal things committed by individual troops was scummy, but the good things that the US occupation force did in Japan far outweigh them. The United States' timely intervention stopped mass-starvation in the nick of time from what I know of the theme. US forces in general held a lot of restraint towards the defeated, especially considering the blatant war-time racism prevalent just months to years prior. As ham-fisted as SCAP's constitution could be seen or as shifty as the US Occupation forces were towards the Japanese Left as the Cold War came, they defended the human dignity and political rights of the Japanese people adequately-enough. If anything, MacArthur's patronizing White Savior attitude towards "a nation of 12-year olds" meant he molly-coddled the Japanese...if there's such a thing as affectionate racism, the dude definitely fit the description.


Now that we're political:
If anything, SCAP was full of crap for quite the opposite reason; the USA let a lot of A-Class war criminals off the hook and many re-integrated into mainstream Japanese politics at the start of the Cold War. Take the bastard that was Shinzo Abe's grandpa as an example.

I mean yes, but it was kinda necessary at that point. With Half of Korea under Russian control and China basically a Russian ally, if not (to the US, at that point) a puppet, they kinda needed a powerful-ish Japan more than they needed a chastised Japan. Ditto the things that happened in Germany. Also, I think Shar was talking about the atomic bombs, not the post-war occupation.

Disagree. Their use on civilian towns of an essentially defeated enemy nation was an atrocity.




The Letters of last resort (UK PM Orders to nuclear sub comanders in case of annihilation of the UK), in particular the orders "retaliate" and "do not retaliate", pose a moral paradox in which neither option is morally justifiable.

Pan-Asianism is an essentially sensible ideology. There are certain values that the vast majority of Asian societies have in common and the outliers (e.g. Tibetans in Nepal) will either adapt or cease to exist due to what scientists call group selection.

That's... not what Pan-Asianism is, and even in your definition it doesn't make sense. Asians, like any other group of people who've banded together through arbitrary continental boundaries, have more differences than they have in common.
