JAPAN'S  WAR  #15


FOLLOWING  THE  EMPEROR'S  BROADCAST,  ORDERS  ARE  SENT  THROUGHOUT  THE  EMPIRE  FOR  SOLDERS  TO  LAY  DOWN  THEIR  ARMS  AND  SURRENDER.


SOLDIER  IN  THE  41ST  INFANTRY  REGIMENT  "I  NEVER  DREAMED  THE  EMPEROR  WOULD  GIVE  UP  SO  EASILY.  OFFICERS  LIKE  ME  DIDN'T  BELIEVE  JAPAN  COULD  LOOSE.  I  WAS  ORDERED  TO  BURN  THE  REGIMENT  COLORS;  I  DID  IT  WITH  TEARS  STREAMING  DOWN  MY  FACE.  I  ONLY  HOPE  THE  VICTORS  WILL  DEAL  WITH  US  IN  A  GENTLEMANLY  MANNER."


HOUSEWIFE  YO - IHARA  IS  WORRIED  ABOUT  HER  HUSBAND, "AT  THE  NEWS  OF  THE  SURRENDER  ALL  THE  ENERGY  DRAINED  OUT  OF  MY  BODY.  THE  RADIO  NEWS  CONTINUED.  I  HEARD  THE  SOLDIERS  ABROAD  WOULD  BE  DISARMED  AND  REPATRIATED  TO  JAPAN.  I  FELT SO  RELIEVED  AND  I  PRAYED  ALL  NIGHT  THROUGH 'GOD  PLEASE  STOP  MY  HUSBAND  FROM  COMMITTING  SUICIDE.'"


IT  WOULD  BE  THREE  YEARS  BEFORE  YO - IHARA  WOULD  RECEIVE  ANY  NEWS  OF  HER  HUSBAND.  HE  HAD  BEEN  KILLED  ON  AUGUST  10TH,  JUST  5  DAYS  BEFORE  THE  SURRENDER.


1945 - THAILAND


ALL  OF  ASIA  PRISONERS  OF  WAR  CAMPS  ARE  BEING  LIBERATED  BY  THE  ALLIES.


OVER  130,000  BRITISH  AND  EMPIRE  TROOPS  CAPTURED  IN  MALAYA,  SINGAPORE,  AND  BURMA,  HAVE  BEEN  FORCED  TO  WORK  IN  APPALLING  CONDITIONS  BY  THEIR  JAPANESE  CAPTORS.  MANY  OF  THE  CAMP  GUARDS  ARE  ARRESTED  AND  CHARGED  WITH  BRUTALITY AND  MURDER.


FIRST  LEFT-TENANT  IROSHI  ABI  WAS  IN  CHARGE  OF  A  RAILROAD  CONSTRUCTION  UNIT, "I  REALLY  DIDN'T  DO  ANYTHING  WRONG,  I  JUST  WORKED  THERE;  WE  HAD  TO  HAVE  HUMAN  LABOR  BECAUSE  WE  DIDN'T  HAVE  MACHINES.  IF  A  PRISONER  LOOKED  LAZY  HE'D  BE  BEATEN  UP;  I  DIDN'T  REALLY  KNOW  ANYTHING  ABOUT  THE  GENEVA CONVENTION.  IN  MY  CAMP  3,100  DIED."


KATCHIANA  A  GUARD, "WE  BEAT  AND  KICKED  PRISONERS  IN  ORDER  TO  MAKE  THEM  WORK.  THERE  WASN'T  MUCH  TO  EAT,  AND  ARMY  REGULATIONS  SAID  WE  WERE  TO  FEED  OURSELVES  FIRST.  WHAT  WAS  LEFT  WENT  TO  THE  PRISONERS,  SO  THEY  GOT  BARELY  ANYTHING.  EVERY  DAY  THEY  DIED.  THERE  WAS  NO  TIME  TO  DIG  GRAVES.  AND  WHEN  YOU  PUT  SEVERAL  HUNDRED  CARPES  IN  ONE  PLACE  EVERYTHING  REAKS  WITH  THE  SMELL  OF  ROTTING  BODIES.  THE  STINK  OF  DEATH."


OF  THE  BRITISH  AND  EMPIRE  SOLDIERS  CAPTURED  BY  THE  JAPANESE  ALMOST  1  IN  4,  MORE  THAN  29,000  ARE  DEAD  BY  THE  WARS  END.

..........


AGAIN  WE  SEE  THE  DEPTHS  OF  THE  WORKING  OF  SATANIC  FORCES  WITH  THE  MIND  OF  MEN.  DECEPTIONS,  BRAINWASHING,  AND  BRUTALITY  THAT  IS  HARD  TO  IMAGINE.  I  BELIEVE  MOST  OF THE  LEADERS  AND  GUARDS  IN  THE  GERMAN-JAPAN  WAR  MACHINE  WERE  IN  THEIR  MINDS  HELD  IN  DEMONIC  BONDAGE,  IF NOT  FULLY  POSSESSED  BY  THE  DEMONS  OF  SATAN'S  ARMY.


SADLY,  BECAUSE  OF  THE  WORLD'S  SINS,  A  TIME  OF  SATANIC  HORROR,  EVEN  MORE  THAN  THE  SECOND  WORLD  WAR,  IS  TO  COME  ON  THIS  EARTH  DURING  THE  LAST  3  AND  1/2  YEARS  OF  THIS  AGE.  AS  JESUS  SAID  A  TIME  OF  TROUBLE  SUCH  AS  NEVER  HAS  BEEN  AND  NEVER  WILL  BE  AGAIN.


SADLY  IT  SEEMS  THIS  WILL  BE  THE  ONLY  WAY  THE  NATIONS  OF THE  EARTH  WILL  COME  TO  SEE  THE  FULL  ERROR  OF  THEIR  WAYS,  AND  BE  WILLING  TO  LET  GOD  THROUGH  JESUS  CHRIST,  RULE  THEM  WITH  HIS  LAWS  AND  HIS  COMMANDMENTS,  AND  HIS  WAY  OF  LIFE.


THEN  GOD  WILL  POUR  OUT  HIS  SPIRIT  ON  ALL  FLESH,  AND  WE  SHALL  HAVE  THE  GLORIOUS  AND  WONDERFUL  PROMISED  AGE  TO COME  FOR  A  THOUSAND  YEARS.
