Japanese recovering their wardead...

The Japanese have never made any attempt to recover their war dead simply because there were too many of them because they considered those men expendable. Also the Japanese would much prefer that the world forget what they did and that's why they have still refuse to apologise for anything they did. In fact, if you study the history of Japan you will find that not only did Japan escape from having any war trials as happened to the Germans in Nuremberg, most of the large Japanese businesses that helped take part in the war effort are till around today doing business as normal.

The link betweeen the Japanese government, the Japanese Royal Family, the criminal organised crime (Yakuza) and big business is still as strongly interlinked today as it was back then. General MacArthur made the decision after the war that letting these war criminals escape justice was essential to being able to maintain control in Japan after the end of WW2. It was one of the greatest injustices of the last century. Read the historical books written by Stirling Seagrave and you will be shocked as to what happened.
