TOKYO - The Toyama No. 5 apartment block is quiet at midday -- laundry flapping from balconies, old people taking an after-lunch stroll. But the building and its nearby park may be sitting on a gruesome World War II secret.

A wartime nurse has broken more than 60 years of silence to reveal her part in burying dozens, perhaps hundreds, of bodies there as American forces occupied the Japanese capital.

The way experts see it, these were no ordinary casualties of war but possible victims of Tokyo's shadowy wartime experiments on live prisoners of war -- an atrocity that the Japanese government has never officially recognized but that is well-documented by historians and participants.

This is worded to imply the corpses were buried by the American Occupation forces. No, that is certainly not the case. The Japanese military and forced labour buried them BECAUSE we were occupied, to hide the evidence from the American military. Do we have to read criticism of America in every aspect of media?

The Americans improved the lives of us Japanese in so many ways as to be uncountable. And those improvements came from one source: General MacArthur and his staff. We thank him with all our hearts and all he did for us. When Truman fired him, it was a sad day for us Japanese. If you think I am making this up, or sticking up for Americans for no reason, look up what I say online. It's easy. Don't easily believe the criticism against America.
