Nanjing Massacure

During WW2 and inspired by its ambitious and wicked emperor, Japanese turned themselves into animals to conquer its neighbors.

The shame of the 'The Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere' and 'Comfort Women'. Imagine captured young women are forced to be sex slaves for their army. What kind of monster did the Japanese military become? Is it worse than the German crimes of WW2? At least they did not rape openly.

There was a contest in which two Japanese generals competed over how many Chinese heads could be chopped off with their swords. After beheading over a hundred, one competitor said that it was not fair as his blade was dull. They continued the utter madness by restarting the competition all over again! Was there any conscience?
These soldiers are war criminals. They killed innocent people by tossing babies, looting and raping. They killed anyone taking pictures. Many of these criminals are being paid respect by high officials in the 'shrines'. It is as disguising as paying homage to Hitler. These war criminals should be tracked down and executed.

Instead, they bragged about how they raped young girls as described by these soldiers without remorse in the documentary Nanjing, which you can rent from Netflix. Another teenager 'wanted' to be raped to save her grandpa.
I suggest that one of the atomic bombs should have been dropped on the Imperial Palace in Kyoto and the other one on the 'shrine' instead of killing innocent citizens at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Even this punishment would be too small for such crimes. The Tsunami must be formed by the tears of the victims crying for justice into a killer wave. I feel sorry for the current generation who has to suffer and who has nothing to do with WW2.

 Japan today still has very strong navy in disguise. Do not be fooled by them again, or we have not learned our lessons.

The ignorant Japanese mayor said Nanjing Massacre never happened. Japanese, young and old, please use Wikipedia and search for 'Nanjing Massacre' or read the late Iris Chang's book which the documentary firm was based on.

We should not spread hatred especially from one generation to another. However, if we do not learn from history, most likely we will repeat history. I wrote this blog hoping to give a voice to the millions of victims who never have a voice.


1.       This chapter and the last one illustrate that China is a victim instead of an oppressor to the world as wrongfully depicted by the West. 

2.       Most Chinese would agree with me. Actually most human beings should. I hope the Japanese especially this generation would find out more about the history not from their distorted text book censored by their government. I hope at least one Japanese would respond to my post. We can never learn if we just sweep any shameful history under the rug.

Let bygones be bygones after we reflect on history. I adore Japanese’s high education, hard work ethics, public behavior (especially on how they react to the disaster), culture and food. I have nothing against a nation but how the war was started, the war criminals and how the Japanese want to ignore history.

3.       The pictures in this link ( are gruesome.

4.       I do not blame some old folks whose families have been killed by Japanese for not buying any Japanese products for life. Again, we should not pass our hatred to the next generation.

5.       They had sex tours for Japanese males to countries in Asia. The Japanese women seem not to object at least openly. Is this part of your shameful culture or better that silence is golden? Wake up and fight for your rights.

I have never met most of the following folks who commented to my post.

TonyP4 has a right to complain @ any perceived wrong done.

I support TonyP4 point considering the Japanese still maintain that they did nothing wrong. Unlike Germany that's paid perhaps $1 trillion in compensation to holocaust survivors, apologized and built monuments to victims, the Japanese cosseted by the yanks due to anger at the communist victory over the U.S. backed Chiang Kai Shek, U.S. hatred of Communist China and let the Japanese off the hook on all counts.

Those people are still paying homage to their Class A war criminals. Should the Germans worship Hitler, Goebbels?

Justice shows leniency for a contrite person. If Japan doesn't think that it did anything wrong, might it not repeat those actions again?

7.       Steve L:

One thing that I want to point out is that war is a terrible thing that would turn people into more than an animal.

I have been to Poland, Cambodia, Vietnam, France etc. (visiting those they called historical places- in reality, people that should not die there). In particular, I visited the 731 Chemical Unit in Shangtung 12 years ago. Ever since that day, I do not own any Japanese product except now I still have a Sony TV that was 18 years old.

Do you know that the Emperor of Japan was spared from prosecution by General MacArthur as a war criminal on condition that he handed in the secret research papers that they performed in China? That is the reason why Japan and the U.S. are the leading countries in cosmetic surgeries and skin products. So next time, ladies, if you put on your makeup, please consider that the blood of the Chinese people may play part of it to glorify your appearance.

I have this “love hate relationship” of the Japanese people. I guess it is quite difficult to define. I love their patriotism, judo, cleanliness, royalties, but not their savage way towards Chinese.

It is however sad for us that we had a corrupt government (if we had one), and everybody was so selfish and cared only for their wealth (Tony: the poor cannot afford to be nice and patriotic?).

I can never imagine that a troop of 10,000 Japanese marines that can march to Nanking; and 5,000 British marines could march to Beijing during the Opium War (Tony: at the end of Ming, the farmer army marched to Beijing with 1 million soldiers).

Those are the national disgrace that can never, never be repeated. We learned from history, and trust that the leaders will never follow the previous mistakes that we made. Most importantly, it should be PEACE that will harmonize everything.

For those who are unsure about the immunity deal between U.S. and Japan after WWII

“Cover up

As the war came to an end, the Japanese surrendered and the U.S. moved in to run the country’s affairs, the officers and scientists responsible were never brought to trial.

The U.S. military got wind of what the Japanese had been working on and immediately grasped two points: They would never be able to conduct that type of human experimentation at home. And that the research had to be kept from the Russians at all costs.

So the U.S. cut the Japanese officers a deal: Immunity from prosecution for war crimes in return for experimental data. “

Description of Debunk the Myths in Investing

I did not write this book …
to waste your time, nor my time. Granted that there are no sure-win strategies to make money, I still believe my strategies can provide some guidance. Making serious money takes serious devotion of not only your money, but time and due diligence. In fact, I earn more money now than when I had a steady income.
The success of my investments has made me financially comfortable; what is the point or purpose of learning-- to earn money and more money-- that I have done! Read Chapter 102 on how I beat S&P 500 by 700% multiple times in a short period. It will not be sustainable for sure. My current strategies are more conservative as my lifestyle does not depend on that extra money. However, some strategies are more profitable and riskier than others. Choose the ones that fit your risk tolerance.

I have spent a lot of time to find hints to detect market plunges. It is one out of 105 chapters but it is the most important chapter. This could help you avoid the next big plunge that could cost you more than 40% of your investment. Market recoveries offer the best opportunity to make big money-- in my book, I describe when and how. Your money to buy this book and the time you invest in could lead to great gains. Such diligence and effort keeps on rewarding for years to come.

I have been a stock investor for over 30 years and a full-time investor for the last six years with exhaustive stock research and performance improvements. I have read over 100 books on investing in addition to the WSJ and Barron’s. I have conducted exhaustive simulations to test these strategies over the past 12 years. Recently, I have been creating many new strategies to adept to the current market conditions and challenges. It is my passion to find the better way to profit from the stock market at the least risk by using market timing and stock evaluation. I enjoy sharing my passion with other.

My children are not interested in investing. Hence, I do not hold back any of my ‘secrets’. However, some strategies are too complicated to describe in a book and/or require some extra tools / subscription services, but I’ll be available to show them to you and/or your organization on a consulting basis.

I did write this book for …

Buffett is one of the greatest investors in our generation. Some of his practices are not applicable in today's market, as many opportunities of the past two decades are not open to the general public. I debunk some of his myths and hopefully you will be able to avoid those pitfalls of conventional wisdom. The reader should be a better investor from my good and bad investment experiences.

The book also shows you how to distinguish good data from garbage covering many investment subscriptions and advices. We would have avoided the bank meltdown if we follow the advice not to invest in specific sectors in this book.

This book describes why the retail investors do not usually beat the index despite of the advantages we have. When we understand the problems and follow the suggestions from this book, we will hopefully beat the index.

I boldly predict that a secular bull market will be starting as early as 2017 when the two wars will be finally over. If it does not happen, most likely it will happen before 2020. I have strong arguments for both scenario forecasts. You hear it here first.

This book includes many strategies in trading for profits. Any strategy could be over-used. That’s why I provide a modified strategy for the popular Dogs of Dow. There is one illustration on how to design a strategy yourself and test it out. We need to use the right strategy for the current market conditions. Many, including many fund managers, fail to do so and achieve a sub-par performance.

Market timing is discussed in detail with market cycle and by calendar such as Presidential Cycle, ‘Sell in May’, best and worst times to invest, etc.

This book covers most topics in investing including diversification, profit protection, trade prices, selling short, covered calls and trade plans. I offer practical solutions and guidelines via my experiences.

The lessons from my bad experiences could be more valuable than the good ones. I achieved over 80% return in 2009 in my largest taxable account and reveal my secrets here. The bottom fishing strategy could be the best time during early market recovery.

I wrote down my findings for my own use. I re-read and test what work and what do not work and I commit to monitor how my metrics work from time to time. A good idea may not work all the time.

This book contains 105 original and refreshing articles except that some articles (most Section II and III) are copied from my other book, A Nation of No Losers, a political satire.

This book is for more advanced than the average retail investor. Some fund managers told me they found the ideas very useful. I also provide links to the basic topics so it is good for beginners too. I also provide a blog for this book so it is never-ending once you get hooked. Sample portfolios provide real-life examples to the concepts of this book.
