“Nagasaki survivors should shut the f*** up about the horrors of the atomic bomb, instead they should reflect on the atrocities of their Imperial Japanese Army,” rants Johnny Yap

On August 9, 1945, America dropped the atomic bomb on Nagasaki which killed around 80,000 to 100,000 civilians. Earlier today, memorial services were held in several places in Japan. “So, what's the big deal?” rants Johnny Yap, owner of Hot Legs Nightclub & Karaoke. “They deserve it! Today -- which is the 70th anniversary of the bombing -- its survivors should not talk cock about their sufferings but reflect on the atrocities committed by their own Imperial Japanese Army!" He thumps his table with his fist and glugs a mouthful of Tsingtao beer.








“To cite a few examples of Japanese war crimes," adds Johnny, wiping his lips with a piece of Kleenex, "the Burma Death Railway claimed the lives of 12,000 Allied POWs and 90,000 labourers, the Bataan Death March in the Philippines took the lives of 21,600 American and Filipino POWs. And the Sook Ching in Singapore left 70,000 to 90,000 Chinese dead! Figures for the Sook Ching in Malaya are estimated at 30,000, according to Wikipedia. Think about that! Nagasaki and Hiroshima deserve what they got!”
