Tokyo Rose ( from a Navy guy )

I received this from my good friend Richard Sutton and I’m just passing this along for thought :

She had the best music on her station and most people just laughed. The ship I was on was sunk no less than five times but each time Davey Jones threw her back 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?

Tokyo Kennedy this very day called Iraq, “Bush’s Vietnam”. (linked via title bar )

The only difference is that they claim to support our troops before they demoralize them, and every other American within ear shot. Come to think of it, Tokyo Rose told the troops she was on their side, too!
