Horrors Of Unit 731...!

This might be one of the worse stories you never heard about.

Nearly everyone has heard of the Nazi death camps and the horrors that went on there, but the Japanese had something almost as bad if not even more evil! This one might give you nightmares!

Forgotten Horrors: The Human Experiments of Unit 731
By Morris M. on Tuesday, July 23, 2013

During the occupation of China, the Japanese army set up the secretive Unit 731. Behind closed doors doctors infected civilians with plague, subjected them to extreme temperature changes, and had them dissected alive.

When the bombs landed in China’s Quzhou province, locals didn’t know what to make of them. Instead of exploding, they merely cracked open – spilling rice, wheat and microscopic fleas across villages. It wasn’t for another week that their purpose became apparent, when an outbreak of Bubonic Plague began to decimate the countryside.

Such plague bombs are only one of the atrocities linked with Unit 731: the Japanese answer to Mengele’s Auschwitz. In a vast complex on the edge of the Chinese mainland, surgeons took turns at dissecting civilians alive, removing organs one by one until the patient died. Some were hung up and vivisected without anesthetic. Others were tied to the ground in freezing weather to see how quickly they would succumb to frostbite. Yet others were gassed or herded into decompression chambers, where researchers timed how long it took their eyeballs to explode. And then there were the germs.

Cholera, typhoid, dysentery and anthrax were spread over Chinese cities. As many as 200,000 people died in outbreaks that lasted until 1948. Russian, Filipino and Allied prisoners were infected then pickled in formaldehyde. Yet, for all this brutality, no-one was ever punished. US forces exchanged immunity for data and helped cover-up the evidence. There has been no apology, no compensation, no recognition. Unit 731 remains a darkly open secret—one its victims still suffer with 70 years later.

Folks, I've said it before and I'll say it again! No other creature on this earth can invent so many ways to torture, maim and kill their own kind as man. It was true in the past and even more true today! Don't believe me? Read the news! Every day there's another story of parents killing their own children, of children killing other children or even their parents, or some sick minded individual killing just for the fun of it! It just never seems to end!

Let's have our coffee outside! I need the fresh air after this post!

You are so right when you say no other creature is so cruel as humans are. It blows my mind how many different ways they can think up to hurt each other. An episode of Star Trek even brought this out as did the movie The Day The Earth Stood Still. I'll join you for coffee outside and bring a Danish Kringle. Have a good weekend.

Maybe they thought the bomb we dropped was payment enough. such sickness in the minds of some humans.

Let us enjoy the fresh air this morning and check out your garden I bet it is doing quite well.

Only the human animal tortures. Sickening what some can do to others.
It still goes on today and no one stops it. Disgusting.

Fresh air and sunshine will make us all fell better. Save a spot on the patio for me.

Hey Linda M...
It's really sad, isn't it? Worst part to read that the U.S. didn't hold any war trials or tribunals, but granted immunity for data!

Shameful! Thanks for coming by today!

Hey Jo...
That is so true! Man can be cruel!

Thanks, sweetie, for dropping by today!

Hey Phyllis...
It's terrible, but true!

Thanks for coming over today!

Yes they were just as evil as the nazis! I learned about these things around twenty years ago and at first I couldn't believe it. But more and more evidence has come up and I just canä't understand how the Japanese leaders can refuse to appologize for what they did to innocent people!?
