When trained correctly, any man can be turned into a "killing machine." The primary purpose of the US Army's BASIC COMBAT INFANTRYMAN TRAINING, better known as "Basic Training" and "Boot Camp" is (or was) designed to "tear a man down to his basic human level, then REBUILD him into an infantryman." After he was now an infantryman (graduated from boot camp), then he went on to his Primary MOS (Military Occupational Specialty)...Armor school (to become a tank crewman), Artillery School (to become an artilleryman), Military Police School (to become a military policeman), Engineer School (to become an engineer), Medic School (to become a medic), etc. The US Marine Corps has traditionally had the toughest "Basic Combat Infantryman Training" programs. The mission of the US Marines is different from that of the US Army. The Marines must secure beach heads for US Navy purposes. The Marines are part of the US Navy. Taking a shoreline/beachhead requires a "no-nonsense" attitude. Whereas the Army can wait for air support, or artillery support, or reinforcements, or proper naval gunnery support; Marines need to take an objective NOW (when the mission requires it). With or without the added support, the Marines must act NOW (when ordered/mission required). Consequently, US Marines are most probably better equated to "Shock Troops", as they are trained for the most difficult assaults. The result of these "difficult missions" is TOUGHER TRAINING. During WWII, during a particular island assault, the US Army was taking one objective, while the Marines were taking another one. The Marines took theirs, while the army was stalled on theirs. A single enemy machinegun was holding up the army advance. The invasion "Time-Table" was now off; an enemy submarine crept up on the waiting US Naval ships waiting off shore, and torpedoed one US Navy Escort Carrier, sinking it, and killing 600 US Sailors. Had that objective been taken within the allotted time table, the waiting US Ships would have departed before that submarine could have gotten within range. There is a reason for military "time-tables." There is (or was) a reason for United States Marines.
Back then Japanese boys were trained from the time they were 9 years old to be warriors in the way of the Samurai Code. Their minds were indoctrinated and they were trained as our men are trained in boot camp. All of them are expected to service in their military forces. They get out of serving if they are physically unable, have talents that are needed elsewhere or last man in the family.
So they are killing machines from the time they are young. They were not taught sports nor did they join little leagues or the Scouts. They learned to war.
WW I 10% WW II 50% Vietnam 70% Iraq 90% Scary, isn't it? Used to be soldiers killing soldiers; now it's soldiers killing innocent civilians like you and me.

The Vikings were not killing machines. They farmed, fished, and had families, but they did raid and many times instead of killing they took slaves. The Vikings had a culture and society based on their Norse gods and had a hierarchy within the various clans.
A lot. The most obvious is the tank, which as well as attacking enemies, shielded foot soldiers from machine gun fire which was killing a lot of Allied soldiers.
there was a newly created generation so they tried to forget what had happened. Japan obviously had new technology, so of course we wanted it so we sent people over there and since there was a new generation at hand they didn't try and kill us all again. but as i watched in a doco called 'Return to Sandarken' many of the soldiers that got away from the death marches and P.O.W camps don't want to forgive and forget. they hate all Japanese for what they did and don't think that Australia should let the Japanese into our counrty for what they did to us...killing us and all. but i guess it is in the beholders hand..or with us..our prime minister..to let the Japanese in. and i think that we should just forgive and forget because This generation of Australians and Japanese didnt do anything so we shouldn't think any different of them.
The Japanese Soldiers/guards entertained themselves by killing people every half a mile or less.
BEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wrong. Stephen Colbert does not consider anything to be "unGodly killing machines." He does, however, occasionally ponder the unalterable fact that bears are "Godless killing machines."
the Japanese are killing them to eat them
Ended the war without killing a million Allied soldiers. Killed a lot of Japanese and began the "nuclear age".
No. There is no record of Japanese soldiers landing on Australian soil. Much damage was done with the air bombings of Darwin and Broome. Japanese submarines also entered Sydney Harbour in 1942, and successfully torpedoed the naval depot ship HMAS Kuttabul, killing 19 Australians and 2 British sailors. Their attempts to hit the Sydney Harbour Bridge fell far short of the mark. But there is no indication that any Japanese soldiers ever landed on Australian soil.
because i want to have babies with you
The two were bitter enemies with each trying to do their duty by killing their opponent in the hopes of ending the war and , someday , return home to their respective nations .
No. Samurai where made to kill. Killing is never good and very rarely seen as help.Difrent veiwpointThe Samurai were primarily soldiers. When the defended Japan and the Japanese people they helped the people.
The Japanese did not believe that surrender was an honorable thing. They also never signed the Geneva Convention. Because of this, their soldiers preferred death to capture and did not understand why ours did not. They thought the surrender of our soldiers in the Philippines was a dishonorable act and treated the men they captured like they had no honor, often straight out killing them.
