During WWII, an American airplane crashed near the Japanese island of Chichijima. There were nine servicemen on board. One was rescued by an American submarine. The other eight were taken in by the Japanese. Through some time and events, the Japanese ended up EATING those servicemen.
The one serviceman who was rescued? That was George H. W. Bush.

Why was he saved?  Coincidence?

What would be different had that dirt bag not survived to head the CIA, etc...

"The future president escaped a similar fate because he ditched his plane further from the island than the other crews, and managed to scramble on to a liferaft. American planes launched a hail of fire at Japanese boats which set out to capture him, driving them back, and he was eventually rescued by a US submarine. "

Sadistic Lieutenant General of the Japanese Army.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoshio_Tachibana



Yoshio Tachibana (立花 芳夫 Tachibana Yoshio?, 24 February 1890 – 24 September 1946) was a lieutenant general of the Japanese Imperial Army. He was commander of the Japanese troops in Chichijima, Ogasawara Islands, and was held responsible for the “Chichijima Incident” a war crime involving torture, extrajudicial execution and cannibalism of Allied prisoners of war.


Tachibana was a native of Ehime prefecture. He graduated from the Imperial Japanese Army Academy in 1913, and had a relatively undistinguished early career. From 1924-1925 he was assigned to the Manchukuo Imperial Army as a liaison officer. In 1942, he was assigned to the staff of the Hiroshima regional defense command, and promoted to major general in March 1943. In May 1944, he became commander of the IJA 1st Independent Combined Brigade. He was further promoted to lieutenant general on March 23, 1945, and given command of the IJA 109th Division, which was tasked with the defense of the Bonin Islands against invasion by American forces in the preliminary preparations to Operation Downfall.
By mid-1945, due to the Allied naval blockade, Japanese troops on Chichijima had run low on supplies and were starving, so Tachibana's senior staff turned to cannibalism. In August 1944 [1] and February/March 1945 [2] in what came to known later as the “Ogasawara Incident”, Tachibana, known to his staff as a sadistic, alcoholic commander, issued an order that all American prisoners of war (downed aviators) be killed.[3]

Two prisoners were beheaded in a public ceremony and per an account in Time Magazine, their livers were immediately cut from their bodies and served as sukiyaki .[4] It was not disputed that eight prisoners of war were executed, and some of the bodies were butchered by the division’s medical orderlies and portions were eaten by the senior staff of the Japanese garrison.
At the end of the war, Tachibana and his staff were arrested by the American occupation authorities and were deported to Guam, where they stood trial for war crimes in connection with the Ogasawara Incident in August 1946.[5] However, as cannibalism was not covered under international law at the time, Tachibana was charged with "prevention of honorable burial"[4] in addition to his execution of prisoners, and along with four other defendants, was sentenced to death by hanging.

Some people believe he's been behind a great deal of shady events that have hurt the United States over the last 50 years.

Fuck him

President Bush made the comments during a campaign stop on August 27, 1988
at O'Hare airport. He spoke with Robert Sherman, chief spokesman for
American Atheists:
RS: "Mr. President, what will you do to win the votes of Americans
who are Atheists?"
GB: "I guess I'm pretty weak in the atheist community. Faith in
God is pretty important to me."
RS: "Surely you recognize the equal citizenship and patriotism of
Americans who are atheists?"
GB: "No, I don't know that atheists should be considered as citizens,
nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under
God."

Lol, love him or hate him, you have to respect that fact that he spoke his mind. I'd take that any day over Romney or Obama that tell you whatever the fuck they think you want to hear.

I disagree.

I'm fine with that.  Just means I have a higher standard for what I define as decency.

You do realize that this quote has been unverified and the accuracy is not verified at all.

The accuracy of the quote has been questioned, however, as Sherman did not tape the exchange and no other journalist reported on it at the time.[33] However, George H. W. Bush's son, George W. Bush, acknowledged those who do not worship during a November 3, 2004 press conference when he said "I will be your president regardless of your faith... And if they choose not to worship, they're just as patriotic as your neighbor."

Even on the Eastern front where fighting between the Germans and Soviet-Russians was brutal there were never cases of intentional cannibalism. I think its a god damn good thing we nuked those Japs a couple of times.
