In the first 100 hours (is it still within the first 100 hours?) of Democrat control they have decided to offer up some very important legislation that will improve the lot of people in this country…no, that will help to make the world a better place….no, that will keep people safe from…no……
That will pay reparations to citizens of a country that were saved from becoming a wing of the Japanese in WWII. The reparations are to pay them for the crimes committed against them by the Japanese!!!
You can’t make this stuff up.
So this will what? Make the Guamians like us? Make the Japanese like us? Point out to the world that we have unlimited resources and are clearly in control of everything else why would we take responsibility for this?
I’m drawing a blank. More research:
Apparently we agreed after WWII to pay the suffering people of Guam. So a study was conducted starting in 2002 and recommendations made in 2004. This more recent story says that Bordallo from Guam who introduced the bill in March this year figures that with a Democratic congress this thing may pass.
The bill targets the U.S. to pay for reparations because Washington agreed that Japan would have no further war-related debts when their World War II peace treaty was signed.
I’d agree just as long as we also agree to pay reparations to every service man and woman who put their life on the line while there. Sheesh.
