Subject: They were eaten...would you have wanted to know that?Not me...Sorry how you feel about who was saved...believe it or not I protested Nam but todays world is a whole different ball of wax.In this situation,we needed a little "cowboy justice".Ever listen to Toby Keith and Willie Nelson sing Beer For My Horses?
In reply to: Lemora 's message, "Well, I won't read this book. I'm sorry that GHW Bush was the only one who got saved. Too bad it couldn't have been someone else. Yes, I know that this will offend some, but that's how I feel. (Boy, talk about changing history!) Since anti-Japanese sentiment was s-o-o-o-o strong, I'm really curious as to why the US government was so secretive about the fate of the 8. Surely, not to avoid "fanning the flames". I think it was shameful not to have levelled with their families about what happened to them." on 22:20:17 07/20/04 Tue

[> [> [> Actually, I suspected that this was their fate. WWII has many untold stories. Also, that the US Gov't. thought that "MIA" was a far more merciful fate to leave with their families, than telling them the truth. Personally, I'd want to know what happened. I wouldn't want to go to my grave wondering. Actually, I know of an instance in the 1980's where this happened in Central America. It isn't all that uncommon. I love Willie Nelson, but no -- I haven't heard that song. I respectfully have to disagree about today's world. History is repeating itself and we humans never seem to learn -- as DG also makes clear in her books. I am curious, now, about the Willie Nelson song. -- Lemora, 22:26:41 07/21/04 Wed

[> [> [> [> I apologize if I get the words tangled up,but goes something like this : My pappy told me,Son,A man has to answer for the wicked that he's done...Justice is the one thing thats hard to find,You've got to saddle up your boys and draw a hard line...When its all over ,we'll raise up our glasses against evil forces,Whiskey for my men,Beer for my horses...there's a verse about hanging the bad guys,but I cant remember off the cuff how it goes.But you get the idea.Toby Keith won an award for it at the CM Awards last time. -- BGWJ, 22:07:23 07/22/04 Thu
