Nanking is one of the two traditional capital cities in China. The Imperial Japanese Army went on a rampage there in the late 1930s. Iris Chang's book, The Rape of Nanking: The Forgotten Holocaust of World War II is the best selling telling of this tale. It inspired the 2007 documentary Nanking.
The book describes how the Japanese Army killed perhaps 300,000 civilians, and raped perhaps 80,000 women. The Army held contests where soldiers would compete to see how fast they could kill Chinese civilians. Many were buried alive; others were tortured to death, or thrown to dogs to be torn apart. Soldiers sliced open the bellies of pregnant women to pull the babies out.
The story so affected Ms. Chang that she took her own life in 2004.
But remember, America is uniquely evil, because it dropped the Atomic Bombs. At least, that's what the Left will tell you. Odd how comfortable they seemingly are with evil, except in one particular place.
Part of a continuing saga, inspired by I Want A New Left.
