I would say that if it hadn't been for the US, the Chinese would now be speaking Japanese, except they probably wouldn't be speaking at all because they would've been eaten by cannibal Japanese Fascists, from TERRY MCCARTHY Wednesday 12 August 1992 "The Independent" article "Japanese troops 'ate flesh of enemies and civilians'":
"JAPANESE troops practised cannibalism on enemy soldiers and civilians in the last war, sometimes cutting flesh from living captives, according to documents discovered by a Japanese academic in Australia. In most cases the motive was apparently not shortage of food, but 'to consolidate the group feeling of the troops', said Toshiyuki Tanaka yesterday in a telephone interview from Melbourne."
From Rory Callinan October 5, 2013 "Sydney Morning Herald" article "Archives reveal Japanese atrocities on Diggers kept secret"
"Previously secret documents from the archives reveal the two were thought to have been horrifically dissected and their organs served up in a ritual dinner to Japanese soldiers, or souvenired and taken back to Japan. The Japanese soldiers were never brought to justice and the facts have been kept from the dead men's families. Details of the atrocities were suppressed and some continue to be so."
From Charles Laurence 26 Oct 2003 "Telegraph" article "George Bush's comrades eaten by their Japanese PoW guards":
"Mr Bradley has established that they were tortured, beaten and then executed, either by beheading with swords or by multiple stab-wounds from bayonets and sharpened bamboo stakes. Four were then butchered by the island garrison's surgeons and their livers and meat from their thighs eaten by senior Japanese officers."
