Who had it worse in the end, Krauts or Japs?
>>
>>550518

Krauts. Part of country got occupied by Russians for half century.
>>
>>550537
The Japs got fuckton of radiation and practically became a big US military base.
>>
>>550518
Germans got bombed out aswell, had to suffer widespread expulsion and women were often vitcims of sexual violence.
So germany gets the point imo
>>
Jap's DEFINATLY. They got kekd by the only nukes ever used in combat then a massive amount of their people committed suicide in the loss. Overall the Japanese lost more people and where occupied at least just as long as west Germany.
>>
>>550518
The Krauts.
>Half of country occupied by Soviets
>Other half occupied by Allies

The Japs on the other hand
>Two nukes
>American way of life
>Coke
>McDonalds
>Anime
>>
>>550614

>Two nukes
>Anime

I really don't know which one is worse
>>
>>550518

East Germans at least had an opportunity to escape before the wall. Japan lost its empire and was cucked mercilessly by GIs.
>>
>>550619
GIs raped Japan. Fucksake, don't use euphemisms.
>>
Japan

>thin islands
>bombed to oblivion
>to this day they dont have a military worth mentioning
>stripped all of its ambitions

germans have their reich through the european union
you dont see japan dominating asia anymore

is it because they dropped the nukes on japan that they got all "japanese" or was that just bound to happen because their society was opressive with strict honor/morals
>>
>>550629
On the other hand, Germany spent 40 years split in two, and one of the most likely battlegrounds for a potential world war three.
>>
>>550657
I feel like it was already happening. Don't forget that tentacle porn was already a thing.

>Just bound to happen because their society was opressive with strict honor/morals
It wasnt just bound to happen.

The Meiji Era Japanese was trying to ape the conservative morals of the West but x 2 and forced a lot of the "Degenerate" aspects that marked Tokugawa Japan (i.e. those porno woodcuts.) into censorship and shaming.

The defeat of Japan during the War was a huge BTFO to conservative Japanese society.

60's and 80's Japan was basically saying to the Imperial Period: "You promised us this golden era of Japanese Empire but all your rhetoric delivered was economic hardship and destruction. Fuck your prim and proper shit, I'm doing things weird from here on."

People tend to forget that Cosplay used to be very shocking for suit & tie Japan before the establishment milked it for its own.

>to this day they dont have a military worth mentioning
Not such a bad thing when you consider that they can leave the military spending to America and use that money elsewhere.
>>
>>550549
>The Japs got fuckton of radiation

Irrelevant.

>and practically became a big US military base.

So did Germany in addition to being occupied by Soviets. US didn't impose dictatorship or communism on Japanese.
>>
>>550742
that never happened
both were rebuilt with the help of the winner

the split wasnt as bad as NK/SK

>>550765
as a leeching yuro on the NATO

the military holds some power projection to this day and its stimulating to your economy
part of the money comes back to you
>>
Germany

Japan because US cucks but they recovered economically unbelievably quick. They weren't a potential warzone waiting to happen, and they don't have a ton of refugees like Germany. Granted, they have hikkikomoris instead but what are they going to do to harm anyone

Krauts definitely.
>>
>>550518

Japan largely had its sins forgiven. Germany is forever haunted by their past. They can't even protect their own women for fear of being called Nazis.

Elaborate? Sounds interesting. And incredibly relevant to nowadays.

Wait until they get hold of personal firearms. It would make US school shootings look like Disneyland.

Are you missing the part where Japan has the 5th largest defense budget in the world and the most technologically advanced military in Asia?

No it didn't. It just had two A-bombs dropped on it. That is not a fuckton. Chernobyl was a fuckton.

Google is your friend
>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Censorship_in_the_Empire_of_Japan
>With the Meiji Restoration, the focus of state censorship of information shifted to protection of the Emperor and the fledgling Meiji government. Ideals of liberal democracy were considered dangerously subversive, and were targeted with the Publication Ordinance of 1869 (出版条例 Shuppan Jōrei?), which banned certain subjects (including pornography), and subjected publications to pre-publication review and approvals. Initially intended to serve as a copyright law, it was quickly adopted as a method of controlling public anti-government criticism.
If Japan of today had its society back then, its media-life would resemble Modern China.

This. Fukushima was a much worse ecological disaster than both atomic bombings combined.
>>
>>551241
I meant more regarding the penetration of western morality to Japan in general.
>>
>>551242
Fukushima doesn't even compare to Chernobyl. I wouldn't go so far to claim that Fukushima was worse than the atomic bombs though.
>>
>>551255
As far as I remember, Fukushima peaked higher than Chernobyl, but Chernobyl's baseline was much higher. Which makes sense as Fukushima was a much bigger station but the Soviets completely messed up on the treatment.
>>
>>551255
I didn't say anything about Chernobyl? All I said is that Fukushima has and will continue to have greater ecological consequences than the atomic bombings did.
>>
Germany got half occupied by russia, easily them
>>
Lets make a comparison
Japs:
>2 atomic bombs which destroyed 2 cities, which are rebuilt shortly afterwards
>no empire anymore
>military must only be used for defensive purposes (reverted)
>6 years American occupation
>state isnt restructured

Krauts:
>destruction of pretty much every major city rebuilt in the West, to a lesser extend in the East
>loss of Eastprussia, Pommern, Posen (Oder-Neiße-Border)
>military since 1955
>11 years Western occupation, 44 years Eastern occupation
>puppet-states in both countries (BRD,DDR)
>Souveranity in 1989
>"Kollektivschuld"
however
>Marshall-Plan

I think its safe to say that Germany as a whole had it worse, although West-Germany had it slightly better than Japan.
>>
>>551452
51% of Tokyo has been utterly destroyed by firebombs though.
>>
Allies
>>
>>550622
no they didn't dumb weeab

they sold their women into prostitution to give to the gis
>>
>>550518
Not sure, these:
>>550537
>>550566
Are good points but the japs got bombed literally back to the stone age, they went full retard before the war and made all their buildings uber-flammable.

And then we dropped fire bombs on them,

Didn't go too well for the japs tbhlads.
>>
>>551522
You've gotta be fucking kidding. The one advantage that the Japanese had over the Germans is that the Australians played the role of Russians.
>>
>>550518
Who fucking cares, both deserved it
>>
>>550518
To give you context in this question, think about Dresden. That's bad? Add in Hamburg. Two large German cities firebombed to ground. Sure, the Japs couldn't have it worse?

66 Japanese cities were firebombed during the war, average one losing around 40% of their urban area. Were talking at least ten times more casualties.
>>
>>551523
What about conventional bombing of Germany? Ever heard of Dresden? More people died than in the atomic bombings
>>
>>551452
>2 atomic bombs which destroyed 2 cities, which are rebuilt shortly afterwards
And +60 firebombed cities
>>
>>550518
Germany
>invaded
>bombed to pieces
>subject to genocide by Brits and Ruskies
>split in two
>designated battleground for WWIII
>half of country was impoverished Soviet state

Japan
>no invasion
>got to keep government
>had to eat a few bombs
>nukes

Germany by a long shot. Even then America was taking out their white guilt on other white people.

Its hard to say, but the God's honest truth is, Americans and much of the white world during WWII didnt even consider Japanese/asians socially as the same species. They were some lower mongrel race, though however capable, and had little qualms about fusing their shadows into the dirt with atom bombs.

Turns out the japs are A-OK, and wherever the Germans go they must also genocide, except now, its their own selves.
