ME AND GENERAL YAMASHITA



I've heard about this name before but only during my trip to Army Museum , Port Dickson I manage to meet him (gambar je la since he's RIP already). General Yamashita was the Japanese Army General during the invasion of Tanah Melayu (he's the ketua penjajah).

What I'm impressed is the fact that Yamashita-san lead the Japanese army of about 67,000 to defeat the British Army of 120,000 , that is nearly double the number and that is definitely amazing. No wonder some people regard him as HARIMAU MALAYA ....

He may have been a brave general, but he was still responsible for countless human rights violations! Say No to War -- Violence is NEVER a solution, and it is always the most vulnerable and marginalised of people that face the worst harm.

lynn,

totally agree with you adik, what he has done is totally unforgivable. i happen to admire the way he won the battle with less manpower ..the outcome however is totall un acceptable ...
