    War cannot be civil. Anyone who thinks it can be is a moron.
    War can't be civil, it's about killing people. But ultimately, it can be respectful, look at Just War Traditions, like Jus in Bello, or International Humanitarian Law.

    This is disgusting. But conditions in Nazi concentration camps were, in some ways, worse, and this was against entire sections of a civilian population. perhaps the deed isn't worse but circumstances are.

    In a sense, yes.



    Your candour is touching, but this isn't a confessional.

    What about the UK? took away other counties freedom and the cheek to fight for so called feedom in europe! doublestands.
    You can't seriously say the UK was as bad as that?

    However the US granted immunity to Ishii and his scientists in exchange for their research. So they got all the biowarfare data without having to get their hands dirty.

    The UK did nothing of the sort in that century; these are the worst crimes I have ever heard of, and they happened only 65 years ago, some people are still alive from this period today and these 'scientists' did this research under no duress and for my mind they are in fact 'evil'.

    Burying children alive? How can you even compare the UK to those henious practices; that goes against everything that is British.
    Furthermore, I can't see what scientific research could be gained from doing that, so, they must have done it simply to be evil.

    The British did do some horrific things:

    Over 26,000 women and children were to perish in these concentration camps.

    Explain why the commonwealth of nations exists then?
    If the British were so evil and oppressive, why did every colony of the British Empire (bar Burma and Aden) opt to join the British Commonwealth of Nations?

    The British did nothing which even equates to what the Japanese did.
    They didn't subject torture on thousands of citizens in the name of scientific research, any casualties that did occur were not planned or systematically carried out. Furthermore, no conscious decision by the British government was made to cause suffering to people deliberately; which was the case in Japan.

    There is a fundamental difference though, or maybe you're too intellectually blind to notice it.

    "The camps had originally been set up by the British Army as "refugee camps" to provide refuge for civilian families who had been forced to abandon their homes for one or other reason related to the war"

    Jallianwala Bagh Massacre, involved the killing of hundreds of unarmed, defenceless Indians by a senior British military officer, which took place on 13 April 1919

    and don't forget the slave trade!

    Yes, tragic things have happened in every nations history, but there is a definitive difference when evil acts were carefully planned at governmental level and carried out systematically, such as the Nazi experiments and the Japanese experiments.

    There isn't anything equally evil on the part of the British.

    I don't know why you're getting pissy with everyone that's trying to point out that other people have done terrible things as well but most the civilinas probably lost their homes due to the scortched earth policy of the British.

    As Boer farms were destroyed by the British under their "Scorched Earth" policy—including the systematic destruction of crops and slaughtering of livestock, the burning down of homesteads and farms, and the poisoning of wells and salting of fields—to prevent the Boers from resupplying from a home base many tens of thousands of women and children were forcibly moved into the concentration camps.

    Some consider the bombing of Dresden an evil act, retaliation certainly isn't a British thing to do

    You keep going off topic, we're not discussing the British, the thread is asking if the Japanese did worse things than the Nazi's.

    THERE'S A FUNDAMENTAL DIFFERENCE WITH WHAT THE JAPANESE DID AND WHAT THE BRITISH HAVE DONE! IS THIS HARD TO UNDERSTAND?
    -Cannibalism
    -Extreme torture
    -Burying children alive

    I am not refuting the fact the British have a bloody history but that was contemporary to the time, imperial expansion (colonialism), every nation has done it.

    While the British emire didn't do things quite like those of the Axis powers their hardly sinless, most people forget that Britain coined the term concentration camp in the Boer war (although they aren't the first recorded example of this style of camp) equally they've had their fair share of atrocities including the scorched Earth policy which destroyed farmland and other areas in the Boer war to stop guerilla warfare.

    I would say Japan wasn't quite as bad as the Nazis who engaged in many experiments on the Jewish people in a similar vein to those of the Japanese but focussed on genocidaly destroying the Jews and other minorities as well.
    Not to mention the Nazis killed and tortured POWs as well but restricted themselves to "Communist" Russian ones due to them wanting to maintain an otherwise benign relationship with the Europe they planned to conquer, they even had a puppet leader for Britain already picked out apparently, so treated British and French prisoners better than those of "communist" nations.
