Finally, A Serious Scholarly Work on Comfort Women Translated into English
By Marshall Wordsworth
Professor Ikuhiko Hata, a premier authority on modern Japanese history, has finally managed to make available his highly-informative exhaustive research on comfort women to the English-speaking audience. His Comfort Women and Sex in the Battle Zone, an admirable English translation of his 1999 work Ianfu to Senjō no Sei (which had been referred to Comfort Women and Sexuality on the Battlefield in previous years) includes a few additional chapters to reflect on much of what has transpired in the past two decades concerning the issue of Imperial Japan’s military brothel system.

Chinese and Russian Information War Backfires: "China’s Leaders Confront an Unlikely Foe: Ardent Young Communists"

The New York Times article linked at the bottom discussing the Chinese backfire is worth a slow, quiet read.
But first, Yuri Bezmenov, the famous KGB defector, talks about this problem during his interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bX3EZCVj2XA
Yuri is worth watching start to end. I have published him numerous times.

1) FBI has already been caught red-handed trying to influence the election. There is no escaping this. No wiggle room. Simply busted.
2) Even if FBI were neutral.... No credible investigation, analysis, and report, and be conducted can completed in one week.

Women in Infantry: Dumbest. Thing. Ever.

Suicide Car bomb: Our men were burning alive -- only brute strength and courage could get them out. Every second counted.
Secretary of Defense and former Infantryman James Mattis is under attack for experience-based common sense.
This is far beyond normal idiocy. This is the Twilight Zone of stupid.
I served in the Army during peacetime, and then later spent more combat time with infantry troops than just about any war correspondent you ever have heard of. That top 1% of 1%, I was there. Just like Joe Galloway and very few others.

BookX – The Michael Yon Campfire Series
I am an author, photographer, war correspondent, and former cannibal hunter. Stick with me, and you might find this to be the most interesting fundraiser you’ve ever seen. The best parts are near the end.
According to Los Angeles Times, my simple website was once one of the busiest in the world. This success was accomplished with only a laptop, camera, and willingness to swim deeper into war than practically any correspondent.
According to the New York Times,
“…[Michael Yon] has spent most of the last three years in Iraq, writing prolifically and graphically, and racking up more time embedded with combat units than any other journalist, according to the United States military. He has been shot at, buffeted by explosions and seen more people maimed — fighters and civilians, adults and children — than he can count.”
I was just getting started when that article came out in 2008. The ‘best’ is yet to come. Readers who invested in me always got their money’s worth.

Combat comes unexpectedly, even in war.
On Monday, while conducting operations in west Mosul, a voice came over the radio saying troops from our brother unit, the 3-21, were fighting with the enemy in east Mosul on the opposite side of the Tigris River. Moments later, SSG Will Shockley relayed word to us that an American soldier was dead. We began searching for the shooters near one of the bridges on our side of the Tigris, but they got away. Jose L. Ruiz was killed in action.
Although the situation in Mosul is better, our troops still fight here every day. This may not be the war some folks had in mind a few years ago. But once the shooting starts, a plan is just a guess in a party dress.
