Unit 731

Nobody does "detail oriented" like the Japanese.  In the post-war period, that's been a blessing for the world, as we've seen a flood of high quality goods come out of the Land of the Rising Sun.

During the war?  "Detail oriented" took on a much more menacing tone.  Like with Unit 731:
Unit 731 (Japanese: 731 部隊 Nana-san-ichi butai; simplified Chinese: 731部队) was a covert biological and chemical warfare research and development unit of the Imperial Japanese Army that undertook lethal human experimentation during the Second Sino-Japanese War (1937–1945) and World War II. It was responsible for some of the most notorious war crimes carried out by Japanese personnel.
10,000 people were used as human guinea pigs at "research laboratories" in China and Korea.  Men, women, and children were vivisected (dissected while alive) to see the effect of removing various organs.  Some had limbs frozen and then thawed so that the process of gangrene could be tracked with meticulous detail.

Some were used in ordnance testing, to see how new designs in grenades or flame throwers would effect the human body.  Some were used as biological test subjects, for plague, cholera, and anthrax.

The scientific results of these experiments were later used to kill 400,000 Chinese civilians.

But remember, on August 6 we in the United States are expected by our Moral Betters to hang our heads in shame for dropping the Bomb that ended the war and put this unit out of business.

Inspired by a brilliant idea from I Want A New Left.

Found a new hammer I see. Keep it up!
I'm loving it!
On the subject of Japanese industriousness: In the same period of time it took the State of Texas to start and finish the I45 South freeway between Houston and Galveston, (roughly 50 miles) Japan rose from the ashes of World War Two and became a major economic power on this planet. I am not making this up.

I don't really have anything new to say, but I still would like to understand why you feel you have to manufacture points of disagreement with the left. Surely there's enough actual ones?

Tsk! All other cultures are superior to Western European/Christian, bringing art, literature, and general goodness where ever they go. (Insert pic of Tinkerbell sprinkling fairy dust here.) Western European bad bad bad. Anything established by dead white males most especially bad bad bad. Don't you get that?
