Military Review

74 years ago World War II ended

17
74 year ended World War II. After the defeat of Nazi Germany and its allies in Europe, Japan remained virtually the only enemy of the coalition. And, according to the law of the genre, even those countries that even could not speak purely geographically in the Japanese direction were quick to declare war on Japan. However, this did not prevent such countries from registering themselves among the “winners”.




In Russia, Victory Day over Japan is celebrated on September 3.

The end of World War II, as you know, was actually preceded by a war crime of the United States of America. We are talking about dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945. As a result of those bombings, hundreds of thousands of civilians died. However, this does not prevent the United States today from declaring that the use of nuclear weapons against Japan was a "forced measure." And to Japan itself (more precisely, to the Japanese authorities), this does not prevent us from calling the United States an ally to this day, although the United States continues to occupy Japanese territory, expanding its military presence in this country.

And instead of demanding to free their lands from the American military contingent in Washington, the Japanese authorities continue to experience “phantom pains” in relation to the South Kuril Islands, which, according to the results of World War II, went to the USSR, and then to the Russian Federation. This once again confirms the fact that there is no talk of any independence of the Japanese authorities or any independence of Japan. The authorities act only within the framework outlined by the United States, even if these actions run counter to the common sense and national interests of Japan itself.

Japan today is, by and large, the only country in the world that does not officially recognize the outcome of World War II. Firstly, we are talking about strange claims on the Russian South Kuril Islands, and secondly, representatives of the Japanese authorities on a systematic basis worship war criminals in the Yasukuni Temple, who were actually elevated to the face of Shinto saints.

Under the prevailing geopolitical conditions of the same Japan, which lost in the Second World War, it is necessary to remind every time about the outcome of WWII and insist on the full recognition of the results of the war - without any attempt to evade objective reality.

In particular, official Tokyo needs to be reminded of General Kuzma Derevyanko, who led the Soviet delegation at the time of signing the Japanese act of surrender. By the way, the appropriate name for the Friendship Bridge - the Kuzma Derevyanko Bridge - between the Kuril Islands and Hokkaido, if Japan really intends to sign a peace treaty and build relations, rather than dispute the territorial affiliation of the South Kuril Ridge to the applause of Washington.

    WWII results will be revised ... The West rushes to this at full speed demolishing Soviet monuments in Europe and distorting the role of the USSR in the victory in Hitler Germany.
    Japan follows in the wake of this policy with the same interest in the Russian territories as our so-called partners have.
    So this situation will logically aggravate further ... sadly, the WWII did not teach our neighbors anything ... and we are witnessing a repeat of the round of history towards a new world war.

      74 years have passed, 3 generations have already gone. And all the cunning politicians "shake" this topic in their interests, it is time to bury this "stewardess" and legally prohibit the use of the massacre of World War II for political purposes.

      And the reason for all this is the collapse of the USSR and the weakness of Russia ... And the weak, as Putin once said, are usually beaten in the West ...

    So you’ll think 100 times - should the Americans withdraw their troops from Japan.
    Can they really keep the Japanese from the temptations to become great again?
    Or, on the contrary, deliberately do not interfere with the cultivation of revenge?
    A classic of sofa thinking - what would happen if?

    Eternal glory to the heroes!
    Eternal glory!
    Eternal glory!
    Eternal glory to the heroes!
    Glory to the heroes!
    Glory!!

    ... But why should she, this glory, -
    dead?
    Why is she to them, this glory -
    fallen?
    All living things -
    saved.
    Myself -
    not saved.
    Why is she to them, this glory -
    dead? ..
    If the lightning in the clouds splashes hot,
    and huge sky
    from thunder
    will go deaf
    if all the people of the globe shout, -
    none of the dead
    won't even flinch.
    I know:
    the sun will not splash into empty eye sockets!
    I know:
    the song of heavy graves will not open!
    But on behalf of the heart,
    on behalf of life
    I repeat!
    Eternal
    Glory
    To the heroes! ..
    And immortal hymns
    farewell hymns
    majestically floating over a sleepless planet ...
    Let not all the heroes -
    those,
    who died -
    fallen
    eternal glory!
    Eternal Glory !!

    Recall everyone by name,
    we remember our grief ...
    It is necessary -
    not dead!
    This is necessary -
    alive!
    Recall proudly and directly
    dead in the fight ...

    There is a great right:
    forget
    About Me!
    There is a high right:
    to wish
    and dare! ..

    Steel
    eternal glory
    instantaneous
    death!

    Do you bequeathed to us to die
    Homeland?
    Life promised
    love promised
    Homeland.

    Are children born for death
    Homeland?
    Did you want our death
    Homeland?

    Flames hit the sky! -
    Do you remember,
    Homeland?
    Quietly said: "Get to the rescue ..."
    Homeland.
    Nobody begged for your fame
    Homeland.
    Just everyone had a choice:
    I or Homeland.

    The best and most expensive -
    Homeland.
    Woe is yours
    this is our grief
    Homeland.

    Your truth is -
    it is our truth
    Homeland.
    Your glory is
    this is our glory
    Homeland!

    A crimson banner splashed
    the crimson stars were burning
    blind snowstorm
    covered
    blood-red sunset
    and heard the tread of the divisions
    the great tread of the divisions
    the iron tread of the divisions
    accurate
    tread the soldier!
    Toward the peals of the roaring thunder
    we went up to battle
    light and stern.
    The word is inscribed on our banners:
    Victory!
    Victory!!
    In the name of the Fatherland -
    victory!
    In the name of the living -
    victory!
    In the name of the coming -
    victory!
    We must crush the war.
    And there was no pride above
    and there was no valor above -
    because besides
    desire to survive
    is there some more
    courage
    live!
    Toward the peals of the roaring thunder
    we went up to battle
    light and stern.
    The word is inscribed on our banners
    Victory!
    Victory!!

    If Khrushchev had not reviewed the outcome of the war achieved under Stalin, the Japanese would have no complaints against us. In their mentality - the winner gets everything. If they begin to bargain with them, then this is not a winner, it can and should be crushed.

      Nobody expected some 2MB results. The consolidation of the United States in Hokkaido, it was not the most positive outcome and very unexpected.

        US consolidation in Hokkaido, it was not the most positive outcome and very unexpected.

        ,,, yes they not only wanted to tidy up Hokkaido.
        Battle Directive №1 / OH,
        Commander of the KOR, Major General Alexei Romanovich Gnechko.
        ,,, US Naval Forces, allegedly, are preparing to land on the southern islands of the Kuril ridge ,,,,

        Questionnaire on the commander of 91PD Lieutenant-General Tsutsumi Fusaki.

        What is the value in the system of the Kuril Islands o.Matua?

        Matua Island is located in the center of the Kuril Ridge and is an intermediate airbase, as well as a base for the parking of vessels. With the seizure of this island, a good base can be created for action against Hokkaido, and the interruption of communications with the northern islands, Americans were interested in this island,,

    incorrect ..
    A native of the Kiev Province (present-day Ukraine) and the Hero of Ukraine (2007)
    usually take into account such nuances.
    He graduated from the Second Kiev school of red elders in 1924. At the Kharkov school of military elders, Kuzma Derevyanko became interested in the Japanese language and already graduated from the school he spoke and wrote Japanese, at the same time English (which predetermined his fate)
    The representative of the USSR at the headquarters of McCarthur and the compiler of the report on the effect of nuclear weapons on cities ..
    The father was arrested, his uncles, Job and Matvey repressed, received a lethal dose of radiation, but complied with the order.

    "And, according to the law of the genre, even those countries that even could not speak purely geographically in the Japanese direction were quick to declare war on Japan. However, this did not prevent such countries from registering themselves among the “winners”."
    Please announce the list of these countries. And for one and the representatives of those states that signed the pact of surrender of Japan aboard the battleship Missouri. If we are to write, then about everything, and, preferably, in full.

    Let the author tell how he would storm the Japanese islands on which 4 million sat, only a regular imperial army.

    Much more would die than in Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Tokyo.

    as in Europe, they oversee the conquered so that they won’t do anything again. They do not meddle in internal affairs, but what good is revengeism if it is not allowed to go.

    alas, the author will not tell, it’s not articles to publish in the Internet. It is not familiar to such authors that in those days people were smarter and did not argue, sitting on the couch, about what they had no idea.
