More lies...

Also from Penraker:

The History Channel, to its eternal shame, is now showing the leftist propaganda film "The Fog of War"

It features interviews with Robert McNamara. In the first part of the film, McNamara discusses our fire-bombing of Japanese cities.

Its treatment of the matter is grossly immoral. Never once does he mention that all around Japanese conquered Southeast Asia, thousands and thousands were dying every month. The Japanese occupation was one of the most brutal in human history, and Victor Davis Hanson has said that 250,000 people were dying monthly as a result of starvation, disease and other brutalities visited on civilian populations. They killed 10-15 million Chinese during the war alone.

But "Fog of War" does not tell you that. It focuses only on the suffering of the Japanese - and it builds the case that they were the victims...

We see this sort of lie over and over. It pretends to be "pacifist" or "anti-war," or even, God help us, "objective history," but it is always anti-American (or anti-Israel.) And, in fact, pro-war, by excusing any war, no matter how brutal, that is in any way anti-USA. Or anti-Jew.

"Grossly immoral" is exactly right.
