Bio-warfare Japan.

This is coolbert:

The Chinese people having aided and abetted the American allied combat aviators of the Doolittle Raid subjected to Japanese retaliation of a massive and overwhelming scale. Retribution it seems having included the use of bio-warfare agents.

From the book "Flyboys" by James Bradley:

"Chiang Kai-shek later cabled Roosevelt about the revenge Japanese wrought on his people. 'After they had been caught unaware by the falling of American bombs on Tokyo, Japanese troops attacked the coastal areas of China where many of the American flyers had landed. These Japanese troops slaughtered every man, woman and child in those areas - - let me repeat - - those Japanese troops slaughtered every man, woman and child in those areas.'"

"A quarter million Chinese soldiers and civilians were killed in the three-month campaign."

To contrast:

* "France lost 108,000 civilians."
* "Belgium [lost] 101,000."
* "Netherlands  [lost] 242,000."

Those the dead lost in SIX YEARS of warfare [Europe] as compared to three months [China]!

Massacre and malevolent retaliation in the aftermath of the Doolittle Raid that evidently INCLUDED THE USE OF BIO-WARFARE! GERMS!

"In retaliation for the Doolittle Raid, the Japanese sprayed cholera, typhoid, and bubonic plague across East China."

That use of germs AS DOCUMENTED HAVING KILLED INADVERTENTLY A GREAT NUMBER OF JAPANESE AS WELL!

"One report stated that during one assault, a last-minute change in the wind led to the death of seventeen hundred [1,700] Japanese soldiers and the injury to ten thousand [10,000] more."

That the Japanese used chemicals on a widespread basis against Chinese troops during that period of the Second Sino-Japanese War [1937-1941] indisputable. Poison gas used on many occasions, the release and permission to use such weapons of mass destruction having to be obtained from The Emperor himself.

Germ warfare and the experimentation into same by the Japanese Unit 731 a part of history also generally well known.

That usage of bio-warfare agents also a weapon of mass destruction release for same having to been obtained from Hirohito? Hirohito as is well known escaping unscathed from war crime trials subsequent to the end of the war.

Cannibal.

This is coolbert:

Here be cannibals!!

That the Japanese troops during the Second World War [WW2] engaged in cannibalism I was aware of. Those instances of human flesh consumed far more numerous than what I would have imagined.

From the book "Flyboys" by James Bradley:

MOST SECRET [as of 1944].

Lieutenants think tactics, generals think logistics. So is the adage. Supplying the fuel, the beans and the bullets to the troops. Placing the combatants in the field and sustaining them for a prolonged period!

In this regard, sustaining troops "for a prolonged period", the Japanese general staff during that era of the Second World War [WW2] must rate as exceedingly poor quartermasters. Negligent almost beyond belief.

Japanese soldiers during offensive operations expected to obtain local supply. Meaning either: 1. Capture rations from enemy stockpiles, 2. Commandeer food from the local inhabitants.

Japanese troops unable to obtain "local supply" often subjected to a prolonged period of hunger as a consequence resorting to cannibalism !

 "Of those 157,646 sons of Japan sent to New Guinea, only 10,072 survived. Allied bullets killed relatively few. The vast majority were felled by disease and starvation."

Starvation! The only [?] reasonable recourse for the Japanese soldier as a consequence the consumption of human flesh!

"MOST SECRET [to] all force commanders 'Recently, offenses, especially murder, robbery and the acquisition of human flesh have been frequent within the detachments jurisdiction and this had a great influence on the army's morale . . . Those who have consumed human flesh (excluding enemy's) knowing that it is human flesh, will be sentenced to death as for the worst human crime' - - Major General Kikutaro Aotsu, commanding general of the Forty-first Infantry Group 18 November, 1944."

Fighting in the tropics posing severe problems for military medical personnel. Casualties from tropical disease usually about fourteen times as many as those casualties from battlefield death and wounding.

HUNGER, STARVATION AND MALNUTRITION ONLY EXACERBATING A DIFFICULT SITUATION, THAT INDIVIDUAL SOLDIER THAT MUCH MORE SUSCEPTIBLE TO CONTRACTING ILLNESS. THAT HUMAN IMMUNE SYSTEM GREATLY REDUCED IN EFFECTIVENESS!

Atomic Bomb.

This is coolbert:

From the Chicago Tribune only today:

"CHICAGO FLASHBACK"

"WWII and 'The A-Bomb'"

Seventy years ago this month the United States dropped a fearsome new weapon on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki . . . Here's how the Tribune reported the momentous news"

Those Tribune headlines form the time:

"ATOMIC BOMB STORY!"

"ATOM BOMB CREW'S STORY! 60 % OF JAP CITY WIPED OUT"

"2D ATOM BOMB RIPS JAPS! REDS DECLARE WAR; ATTACK"

And as for the lead-in of the accompanying stories:

"Power of Universe Tapped to Create New Missile"

"BILLOWING FIRE BALL DIMS SUN IN DESERT TEST"

"Chicagoan Tells of Awesome Scene from Plane"

"Photographs Show Damage Outside Obliterated Zone"

Chicago, Red Gate Woods, Chicago Pile-1 and Chicago Pile-2, the Dodge Chicago factory and the engine for the B-29 bomber. That relationship between the city of Chicago and the atomic bomb project quite strong!!

Assad of Syria.

This is coolbert:

From DEBKAfile:

The despot Assad continuing the fight, not willing to relinquish power to even the slightest degree, preparing for the final show-down, even as some of his most important military assets obliterated.

1."Assad in a position of strength after Vienna deal with Iran"

27 July.

Syrian President Bashar Assad, in his first public speech in a year, Sunday, July 26, admitted to losing territory . . . he was quietly handed a new Iranian rehabilitation plan for his army, which reorganizes divisions and brigades into three armored commando super-divisions, one each for the northern, southern and Damascus fronts.


2. "ISIS wipes out the Syrian army's largest strategic arsenal, flattens sections of Al Safira complex"

29 July.

"As the US and Turkey got started on a new air campaign against the Islamic State in Syria, the jhadis pulled off their most devastating attack yet on the Syrian army's biggest arsenal. They subjected the giant Al-Safira military complex north of Aleppo . . . Facility No.790, a large depot of the Syrian army's strategic weapons, including chemicals, was set on fire and flattened. Many Iranian technical personnel were present at the facility." 

Assad has the proverbial staying-power, much to the chagrin and amazement of many experts. Iran too and their proxy Hezbollah have a big stake now in the Syrian Civil War, that whole host of actors as involved and the dynamics on the ground almost without peer or equal in any conflict of modern times.

Doom!

This is coolbert:

Dog eat dog!

From Business Insider and according to the investment guru Jeremy Grantham those perceived threats to world stability. Ruination of the existing world order with calamitous results for everyone.

"GRANTHAM: I can't stop thinking about these 10 threats that could potentially ruin the world"

"In his latest quarterly letter to clients, GMO's Jeremy Grantham has a concise list of 10 things that, he writes, 'can all be viewed as problems: potential threats to our well-being.'"

Those 10 topics of doom:

1. "Pressure on GDP growth in the US and the balance of the developed world."
2. "The age of plentiful, cheap resources is gone forever."
3. "Oil."
4. "Climate problems."
5. "Global food shortages."
6. "Income inequality."
7. "Trying to understand deficiencies in democracy and capitalism."
8. "Deficiencies in the Fed." [American Federal Reserve System]
9. "Investment bubbles in a world that is, this time, interestingly different."
10. "Limitations of homo sapiens."

NOT an obliteration of the world order but an obliteration of the world order as we know it. From economic factors that will spiral out of control in an uncontrollable and unanticipated manner.

NO mention of a cataclysmic natural event such as a comet or asteroid impact on the planet Earth or the eruption of a super-volcano. OR a global pandemic of extraordinary and overwhelming proportions [the Black Death for instance]. Global thermonuclear war also not mentioned!

Mr. Grantham an economist [?] so his priorities and protocols always from the economic perspective.

Read additional regarding those factors of doom as outline by Mr. Grantham.

Navy Day.

This is coolbert:

Russian Navy Day.

And near disaster!

From MARCO POLO through Harry:

"The Russians celebrate the last Sunday of July [26 July this year] as their Navy Day. This had started in the Soviet Union in 1839. The date memorializes the Russian fleet's first victory over a foreign navy -- 1714 (July -- August) 'Battle of 'Gangut'"

"On Navy Day each year, President Putin visits home of the Russian fleet -- in 2013 Sevastopol and in 2014 Severomorsk, respectively. This year he was in Baltiisk (Kaliningrad Province) -- home of Russian Baltic Fleet."

"There was a near disaster in Sevastopol [Navy Day in Sevastopol]. In front of a large number of spectators, the frigate 'Ladny' demonstrated the firing of an ASW missile -- 'URPK-3' (NATO's SS-N-14 'Silex'). Seconds after the launch, the missile exploded in the air, and fell back onto the sea. It nearly hit the ship. Fortunately, there were no casualties."

Think of the USS Princeton disaster from a much more previous era:

"The USS Princeton Disaster of 1844 occurred on February 28 aboard the newly built USS Princeton when one of the ship's long guns, the 'Peacemaker', then the world's longest naval gun, exploded during a display of the ship."


The President of the United States John Tyler with a goodly number of his cabinet as in attendance the lot of them nearly killed!!

"President Tyler survived the disaster because he was below decks."

Such things can and do happen.

Aid & Comfort.

This is coolbert:

Here is the typical misleading headline that DOES NOBODY ANY GOOD!!

"Israeli Military Admits to Supporting Syrian Jihadis"

"The alternative press has noted for months that Israel is supporting jihadis in Syria.  But Israel has consistently denied these allegations … until now."

As reported by the Times of Israel:

"Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Monday that Israel has been providing aid to Syrian rebels, thus keeping the Druze in Syria out of immediate danger. Israeli officials have previously balked at confirming on the record that the country has been helping forces that are fighting to overthrow Syrian President Bashar Assad.

“'We’ve assisted them under two conditions,' Ya’alon said of the Israeli medical aid to the Syrian rebels, some of whom are presumably fighting with al-Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra Front to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad. 'That they don’t get too close to the border, and that they don’t touch the Druze.'”

ISRAELI MEDICAL AID. HUMANITARIAN IN NATURE. NOTHING MORE. NOTHING MORE!! SUPPORTING IN THE MOST BROADLY DEFINED MANNER OF THE WORD SUPPORTING! THE GOTCHA MOMENT SPECIOUS AT BEST!

CONDITIONS ATTACHED CONCERN FOR THE DRUZE HIGH ON THE AGENDA IN THE MIND OF THE ISRAELI.
