Knowing a little history on how the Japanese treated the British and American prisoners really makes you laugh when Dickie Durbin whines about how we treat the prisoners at Gitmo. What a dumb-ass.

The percentage of prisoners who died as POW's with the Japanese was much higher than that of the Germans. I can't remember the number off hand but it was significant.

According to a PBS documentary on WW2, the Germans were darn near nice guys compared to the brutal Japnanese in the POW camps.

As far as I'm concerned, the Japanese got off easy at the end of the war. Far to few were tried for war crimes.
