Tokyo - Japan

//NameTokyo was originally known as Edo, meaning estuary. Its name was changed to Tokyo (Tōkyō: tō (east) + kyō (capital)) when it became the de facto imperial capital in 1868.

Some of you are certainly too young to remember Tokyo Rose, but you may remember your parents or grandparents talking about her. Perhaps you have heard her voice in the movies. It was propaganda that Japan thought up. Tokyo Rose During World War II -- the Japanese developed a way to demoralize the American forces. Psychological warfare experts developed a message they felt would work. They gave the script to their famous broadcaster "Tokyo Rose" and every day she would broadcast this same message packaged in different ways, hoping it would have a negative impact on American GI's morale. What was that demoralizing message? It had three main points: 1. Your President is lying to you. 2. This war is illegal. 3. You cannot win the war. Does this sound familiar? Is it because Tokyo Hillary, Tokyo Harry, Tokyo John, Tokyo Teddy, Tokyo Nancy, etc. have picked up the same message and are broadcasting it on Tokyo CNN, Tokyo ABC, Tokyo CBS, Tokyo NBC, etc., to our troops? The only difference is that they claim to support our troops before they demoralize them. Come to think of it, Tokyo Rose told the troops she was on their side, too!

"Yes I read about Tokoyo Rose-WW2. She claims to have been forced but she was still tried I think. I agree with that you are saying. It appears confusion and chaos is the order of the day as the masses are huddled, muddled and befuddled! Behind the scenes some Dems and Repubs are working together against America to form Hermerica. If we are to fight, then protect the troops. Don't let em get eaten piecemeal for $$."

"Wow, Bob... I am glad that you are supporting our president and our troops 100%. I didn't hear where you are stationed in Iraq? Surely someone as fanatic as you wouldn't be sitting on the sidelines... Wait... I get it... Baghdad Bob!!! You are the new Minister of Information! "We are winning this war! There is no civil war! The Iraqi people love the USA! Our presence in Iraq has made the US safe from terrorism! Mission Accomplished! The Iraqi people support the government! Anyone who doesn't agree with me must be a traitor!""

A day or so after i hoped we’d seen the worst of winter, i woke up Sunday morning to a good covering of snow outside. It snowed pretty much all day which to many would be an inconvenience but to someone growing up in Australia it was more a novelty.
