World War II veterans share personal thoughts on Memorial Day

By Antonio Coleman MANTON Richard King, 89, is one of the few surviving members of The Greatest Generation, a generation who grew up during the Great Depression and went on to fight in World War II. His days serving on a Destroyer escort in the South Pacific decades behind him. But along with the passing years, King, a resident of Manton, said hes also lost many friends along the way. Most of the people that I knew back then are gone now. Ive been fortunate enough to live as long as I have, King said. We had a reunion up to about six or seven years ago, and now I have no one at all that was ever on that ship. He said for him each Memorial Day has become not only a time to remember those who had fallen in combat during World War II, but also those surviving soldiers who have passed away over the years. For World War II Veteran Bob MacEachern, 87, the holiday brings back memories both good and bad. I was on an aircraft carrier in World War II and Memorial Day brings back a lot of memories, MacEachern said. Some of which arent very good. MacEachern, who enlisted in the navy in 1944, at age 17, described his experiences of World War II as quite an active time as he reflected on the memories of losing nearly 300 servicemen. Nearly 16 million Americans served in World War II. Everybody went who was of age and that first day, it was hard to comprehend how many people were involved, World War II Veteran Eldon Powell said, describing his first day overseas. There were millions of us in uniform.

Brian Williams lands interview with Edward Snowden

“NBC Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams has scored the first American television interview with Edward Snowden, the network announced Thursday. In a major get, Williams traveled to Moscow, where the former National Security Agency contractor is now living in exile, for an exclusive sitdown earlier this week. The interview will air on May 28 in an hourlong prime time special at 10 p.m. Pacific/Eastern. The interview will be Snowden’s first for American television since he leaked classified documents about the NSA’s widespread domestic surveillance program last year, sparking intense debate about personal privacy and government intrusion. Snowden’s media profile has been on the rise in recent months, with speaking engagements (via teleconference) at the South by Southwest Interactive Festival, a TED Conference in March and an interview in Vanity Fair’s May issue. According to NBC, the conversation took place over several hours. Also sitting for an interview in the special will be Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who originally broke the NSA surveillance story for the Guardian (and helped the British newspaper win a “public service” Pulitzer with the Washington Post) and is now employed by First Look Media, which has a collaboration agreement with NBC.

Legal fight over gay marriage spreads to 29 states

South Dakota Gay-Marriage Lawsuit Leaves One State Without Case

South Dakotas gay marriage ban was challenged by six couples who said it violates their constitutional rights, leaving North Dakota as the only state with a ban that hasnt been contested in court. The complaint, filed yesterday in Sioux Falls, the states largest city, comes a day after Montanas prohibition was challenged and the same week that bans in Pennsylvania and Oregon were struck down by federal judges. Same-sex marriage is now legal in 19 states and the District of Columbia, with lawsuits and appeals pending in 30 others. The U.S. Supreme Court in June triggered a race for the courthouse when it overturned a 1996 ban on federal recognition of same-sex marriages. Like other lawsuits before it, the South Dakota complaint compares the states ban on gay marriage to earlier prohibitions against interracial unions and laws that subordinated the rights of women in marriage. History teaches us that the vitality of marriage does not depend on maintaining discriminatory laws, and that eliminating unconstitutional restrictions on marriage has enhanced the institution, the couples lawyer, Joshua Newville of Madia Law LLC in Minneapolis, said in the complaint. The lawsuit names South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard and the states attorney general, Marty Jackley, both Republicans. In 2006, South Dakota voters approved a constitutional amendment to define marriage as between a man and a woman and I supported that amendment, Daugaard said in an e-mailed statement. Before the lawsuit was filed, Jackley said he would defend the ban if it were challenged in court, according to a statement e-mailed from his office today. The plaintiffs include South Dakota couples who married in other states and who seek recognition of the unions in their home state. Another couple wed in another state before moving to South Dakota, where their marriage was no longer recognized. The U.S. Constitution includes checks and balances that are intended to protect minority groups from the tyranny of the majority, the South Dakota couples said in their complaint. The 2006 ban was put in place simply to target a politically unpopular group, they said.

WW II Sex Slave Says Japanese Apology 'Should Not Take This Long'

Bok-dong Kim is 89, but she is still haunted by her years as a teenager when Japanese soldiers during World War II turned her into a “comfort woman,” or sex slave. Kim is one of only 55 Korean comfort women still alive and she hopes that talks this week in Tokyo will finally result in what she and the other women have been seeking for decades – an apology and compensation. Kim told ABC News that the trauma haunts her every day. It pains me to the bone, she said. We were never set free. Even after the war was over, the memories enslave us. During the war some 200,000 women from Korea and China are estimated to have been forced into sexual slavery by Japanese soldiers. The issue of the comfort women has long been a source of diplomatic tension between Korea and Japan. This weeks negotiations follows the first round of talks held in April when Seoul and Tokyo agreed to hold regular director-level talks on the issue. The South Korean government has stated that Japan needs to resolve the comfort women issue in an effective way that is agreeable to the victims. The government is calling for a sincere apology and compensation. Japan, however, remains firm that all issues were settled in a 1965 treaty that normalized bilateral ties between South Korea and Japan. For Kim, who was just 14 when she was taken by Japanese troops to serve as a comfort woman, such diplomatic language misses the point. The Japanese government needs to take responsibility for the crimes that were committed during the war, she says. Japan continues to deny the blatant truth. But we want the Japanese to acknowledge the wrongs of their past and give us a sincere apology and compensation. It should not take this long, she said. Unspeakable atrocities were committed, she told ABC News. Young girls and women were taken, and we became slaves. I was dragged around by Japanese soldiers. Once the war was over, I was thrown away. They took my name, they took my youth and they took my life. Kim believes the South Korean government also needs to take a stronger stance. Our government needs to fight for us. It needs to take action, and raise awareness about the issue on a global scale, she said. An apology of the Japanese government would mean a lot to Kim. Specifically, it would mean Peace. We just want peace.

Killers unleash venom after sentencing

STORY HIGHLIGHTS (CNN) — In court, the South Carolina neo-Nazi couple seemed remorseful for the 2013 murder of a sex offender, but they changed their tunes when their life sentences were handed down. “Child molesters do not deserve to live,” Jeremy Moody said as he was led out of a Union County courthouse Tuesday wearing handcuffs and striped prison scrubs. “Had to do it over again, I’d kill more.” As his wife, Christine Moody, was placed into a police car for transport to prison, she added, “I have no regrets. Killing that pedophile was the best day of my life.” The couple was charged in the murders of Charles Parker, 59, and his wife, Gretchen, 51, in July. The Moodys went to their Jonesville home pretending to have car trouble, entered the home and killed the couple, Union County Chief Deputy Perry Haney said at the time. Jeremy Moody, 31, told police he killed the Parkers because Charles Parker was on the South Carolina sex offender registry, Haney said. He was convicted in 1991 of sexual assault on a child and again in 2003 of third-degree criminal sexual misconduct involving a 31-year-old woman, CNN affiliate WHNS reported, citing police and court records. Charles Parker reportedly was convicted in 1991 of sexual assault on a child and again in 2003 of third-degree criminal sexual misconduct involving a 31-year-old woman. Gretchen Parker was not a registered sex offender, Haney told CNN. The Parkers were found dead July 22. They’d been stabbed and shot with a .380 handgun, Haney said. Police used images from the Parkers’ home surveillance system to track down their killers, he said. Integral to identifying Jeremy Moody, police said, were his tattoos: In addition to the words “white power” atop his bald head, he also has the word “skinhead” tattooed almost ear to ear beneath his chin.

SAs EFF: From economic apartheid to true democracy

CONTRARY to the Westernized, popular belief that South Africa is a model democracy”, it is one of Africa’s most dysfunctional democracies. South Africa’s apartheid regime is remembered as one of the worst crimes against humanity of the 20th century. The economic system that underpinned it remains alive and well today. Whites comprise only 12 percent of the population but, thanks to the racist exploitation of blacks over the past 350 years, still own 75 percent of the countrys land. US-based bank, Citigroup, recently ranked South Africa as the worlds richest country, in terms of its mineral reserves, worth an estimated $2.5 trillion. Whites and foreigners own a staggering 80 percent of this wealth. South Africa is, unquestionably, the world’s most racially unequal society. Democracy is not about holding elections, simply to choose which particular representatives of the elite class should rule over the masses. True democracy is about equalizing the economy and giving economic power back to the majority. The Economic Freedom Fighters party campaigned for the just-ended elections on a platform of three pillars, designed to democratize the economy and overthrow the economic legacy of apartheid. First, expropriation of land for redistribution amongst the masses. Second, nationalization of mines and banks for the benefit of the people and, finally, free education and health care for all This week marks the most important election in South Africa’s post-apartheid history. The EFF is the party of the poor, and if given power by the electorate, it will do what the ruling ANC has failed to do since 1994: provide economic freedom for the poor African majority, at the expense of the predominately white capitalists. Despite twenty years of South African democracy, five white-owned companies still control 75 percent of South Africa’s stock market. It’s the largest concentration of wealth and power on earth. Corporate powers, which underwrote apartheid in South Africa, are reminiscent of the great German companies that ran the Third Reich’s economy. The only difference between the Third Reich and apartheid is that ‘reconciliation’ in Germany did not leave pro-Nazi financiers in business whereas in South Africa, those financiers are still firmly in control. During apartheid, Britain was the single biggest investor in South Africa, followed by the United States, yielding the highest return on capital in the world. The United States and the other Western capitalist governments not only supported, but benefited from the racist apartheid regime. With economic control still concentrated in the hands of the white elite, we see no difference between the old and the new South African regimes. Blacks have reclaimed the political crown, but whites have remained with the crown jewels. Today, Western media demonizes Julius Malema, the EFF’s commander-in-chief, because he is the most outspoken proponent of economic justice. It is no surprise, considering Malema’s ideologies threaten the economic stability of some of the most powerful white capitalists in the world. To this day, a large portion of South Africa’s budget pays apartheid-era debt to Western nations. This means the people pay for their oppression twice over. Clearly, the fabric of apartheid, which the Western media claims is long dead, still generates large sums of money, lining the pockets of the very same Western capitalists.
