Victory Over Japan Day 

From the National Veterans Organization of America.  GIs in Paris celebrate the surrender of Japan with special editions of the Paris Post
Today marks the 59th anniversary of VJ-Day, when Japan accepted the surrender terms of the Allies. It marks the effective end of Second World War.

The editorial of Daily Yomiuri is a vile blanket whitewash of Japan's war crimes as it sheds crocodile tears over the execution of war criminals and equivocates the veneration of said criminals at the Yasukuni shrine. I'm not going to link to it, but those interested can search on Google News.

This is a day to remember the brave men who saved the world from the Fascists of the East and West. We thank you for your sacrifice.
Absolutely right, Kelvin. This is the sort of post that restores my faith in humanity.
