With all due respect , the Japanese were mentally not much better than animals . And in a lot of asian cultures , human life has always been cheap and of little value . They had very little understanding of long term strategy , they invested very little on equipping their soldiers with the tools needed for success , but rather depending on brainwashing to try to compensate for inferior tactics and equipment on the ground . Look at the numbers , it was not unusual to see 3-10 times the casualties on the Japanese side vs on the American marine side . Suicidal frontal attacks , like a rabid dog , knowing you cant afford the losses or be able to transport reinforcements , thats not advantage , its stupidity . Their behavior in occupied lands made the SS look like mother Teresa , they got a very rude awakening when they faced an enemy that was just as brutal as they were , when the Soviet Union invaded Manchuria ……..just sayin . Religion is a different animal , they are 100% deluded , they cant be woken up like the other type can , that is something that is extremely difficult to deal with . But your right , poor leadership on our part is bad enough , but the amount of people going into the military that really dont understand what the military is actually about , or why it exists is a little scary . Its there to kill or be killed in its most base form . These kids join up for their own reasons , like the GI bill when they get out , and thats fine , nothing wrong with that . But it forces you to ask the question , especially with the history of meddling and conflict of our government………where did they think they were going to be sent ? Sandals resorts ? the French Riviera ?……………….like the fireman that complains about the heat of a burning building , what did you think you were going to be doing when you joined up ? Some folks just dont have the common sense God gave a jacka$$
