    This is in pretty poor taste considering what
    really did happen in WWII.

    War is in bad taste. Unfortunately the mavens haven’t laid down the law.

    If only the mavens had to go to war then there would be no wars.

    The above strip is a perfect match for the strip’s name.
    Obviously Thom is not a student of history.

    Regardless of the hisses and boos, Thom, having proudly defended your right to be as perverse as you are, I feel affirmed when you and others dare to publish such. Hell, I even laughed…which goes to show how perverse I can be.

    I’ll admit to being disturbed knowing my own history as well as being an avid student of history. My family (by marriage) is Pinoy.
    Apologies? I have none. Respect? I have much. Disrespect? I have experienced that as a Vietnam veteran and a policeman. Censorship? I will not condone.
    Humor? An entertainment not always for the squeamish; humorous is not always funny.

    Anyone is welcome to piss on my grave.

    My home town tank battalion was sent there just before Pearl Harbor. One or two were killed in the fighting. One died on the march. Over sixty died in the camps and on prison ships to Japan. Look up the “Janesville 99”

    Irony? → The road I most often take to and from town to the area where my rural house is located (house isn’t on the highway) is designated as the Bataan Memorial Highway. Subaru’s US plant is located on this highway and I pass it going to and from town all the time. The signs for this are still up.
    I also drive a car made there

    I didn’t know you could say so many words. I think of you as king of the one-line comments.
    Anyway, I agree with what you say. Some comics use humor to remind us of the past – good and bad. Not disrespectful just mindful. We don’t always think about these things and comics like this can be a gentle reminder. That’s the way I take it anyways.

    Could be Thom’s take on this was with respect…………
    This was done in Black and White.

    It made me look up the Death March, and I found that there is a commemorative Bataan Death March at the White Sands Missile Range each year………26 miles as well as 14 miles.

    With respect, I honor all who had to partake of this March!

    Bad, bad, bad idea. Incredibly poor taste, grossly disrespectful of the men who died and suffered in the hell of the death march.

    What’s next? Hamsters in Auschwitz?

    Yes Thom, it was that bad. There are some places you simply do not go.
