This is what happens when you stray too far to the faith end of the "faith vs reason" end of the spectrum.
Might want to keep an eye on that mental health, Splen.
Yeah, you do like your Christian smear campaign.
But you can check ABC news. Police and medical personnel suspect the drug fad bath salts because they can trigger violent outbursts.
Maybe you can find the bible here where the Japanese cannibalized people but somehow I doubt it. Most Japanese don't read the bible.
Many written reports and testimonies collected by the Australian War Crimes Section of the Tokyo tribunal, and investigated by prosecutor William Webb (the future Judge-in-Chief), indicate that Japanese personnel in many parts of Asia and the Pacific committed acts of cannibalism against Allied prisoners of war. In many cases this was inspired by ever-increasing Allied attacks on Japanese supply lines, and the death and illness of Japanese personnel as a result of hunger. However, according to historian Yuki Tanaka: "cannibalism was often a systematic activity conducted by whole squads and under the command of officers". This frequently involved murder for the purpose of securing bodies. For example, an Indian POW, Havildar Changdi Ram, testified that: "[on November 12, 1944] the Kempeitai beheaded [an Allied] pilot. I saw this from behind a tree and watched some of the Japanese cut flesh from his arms, legs, hips, buttocks and carry it off to their quarters... They cut it [into] small pieces and fried it."
In some cases, flesh was cut from living people: another Indian POW, Lance Naik Hatam Ali (later a citizen of Pakistan), testified that in New Guinea:
the Japanese started selecting prisoners and every day one prisoner was taken out and killed and eaten by the soldiers. I personally saw this happen and about 100 prisoners were eaten at this place by the Japanese. The remainder of us were taken to another spot 50 miles [80 km] away where 10 prisoners died of sickness. At this place, the Japanese again started selecting prisoners to eat. Those selected were taken to a hut where their flesh was cut from their bodies while they were alive and they were thrown into a ditch where they later died.
Perhaps the most senior officer convicted of cannibalism was Lt Gen. Yoshio Tachibana (立花芳夫,Tachibana Yoshio), who with 11 other Japanese personnel was tried in August 1946 in relation to the execution of U.S. Navy airmen, and the cannibalism of at least one of them, during August 1944, on Chichi Jima, in the Bonin Islands. The airmen were beheaded on Tachibana's orders. As military and international law did not specifically deal with cannibalism, they were tried for murder and "prevention of honorable burial". Tachibana was sentenced to death, and hanged.
Btw don't forget to study up on the Buddhist Nichiren sect. Not a particularly peaceful Buddhist sect at all and some say part of the reason behind Japanese WWII war mongering.
The Anti-Buddhist Behavior of the Nichiren Shoshu Priesthood During World War II:
Note: the Buddhists above accepted Shinto....hmmm...wonder why those Buddhists did that....Aren't most Buddhists atheists? Or are they?
Like I said in another thread, time has a habit of covering over everything...with the media's help, of course.
