The official surrender of Japan in World War II came this day aboard the USS Missouri, slowly and shamefully laying down their swords. Flags flown by the US, China, Soviet Union and Britain were all present aboard the ship. For a nation that 'never surrenders', this was a crucial point in the way the world's economy would unfold the following years. Thus ended the most brutal of all of History's wars.
Under Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam also declared independence from Japan this very same day and ceded from under the thumb of French occupation which turned their streets to blood. Violence continued to haunt the country for decades to come, including engaging in the only war that America ever 'lost'.
“It is my earnest hope and indeed the hope of all mankind that from this solemn occasion a better world shall emerge out of the blood and carnage of the past.”
- Supreme Commander of the Allied Powers - General MacArthur

We now honor those that are using our family tag - #thealliance. These 'history' posts are getting some attention as I also include my three picks for curated content between now and the last issue. The three creators are beneficiaries of these posts. What would be a good percentage for these lovely humans? Since I have 206 bones, and London burnt to a crisp in 1666, then there is no logic that defines why TDR would want to carry a big stick instead of a gun.
