The story of Japan’s rise and fall begins with the construction of the first national railway line.
In 1788, Japanese emperor Tokugawa Ieyasu established the Edo-period Tokugaku, or Empire, in what is now Japan.
Tokugakus rise and decline were followed by the Tokugawas reign, which ended in 1868, and the Edos reign, in 1873.
In 1871, the Tokujin (Great Shogun) Tokugagawa Iejima established a puppet government, led by a young woman named Tamai, and took the country to the top of its social and economic ladder.
Tamaa is credited with the creation of Japan as a country and a nation, and for creating the “comfort women” who were forced to work in brothels and brothelots for Japan’s ruling elite.
In the years that followed, Tamaas reign was followed by an era of economic stagnation, economic crisis, and political upheaval.
During the Toko-era, the country experienced two economic recessions in the 19th and 20th centuries.
In 1929, Japan’s economy suffered a devastating collapse that led to the deaths of more than half of the country’s people.
During World War II, the military occupation of Japan was a key cause of the loss of more people than any other cause.
In 1950, the Japanese government passed a new constitution and abolished the monarchy, which was replaced by a military junta.
It was also the beginning of the end of the war, and Japan’s national humiliation in a war that had devastated the lives of millions.
The Tokugas reign ended with the defeat of the US-led Allied Powers in World War Two and the creation in 1949 of the Democratic Republic of the Marshall Islands (DPR), a self-governing country in the Pacific Ocean.
In 1949, the government of the island nation of Palau (also known as the Marshall Kingdom) became the first to formally surrender to the United States.
The US was forced to negotiate an agreement with the PRL, which the US then gave to the Philippines.
Palau was then annexed by the US in 1962 and became a US colony in 1971.
The Philippines had been under a military dictatorship for nearly three decades, which included widespread torture, murder, and mass imprisonment.
The United States imposed martial law in the Philippines in 1974, but it was not until 1979 that the Philippine government officially surrendered.
The PRL had been in power since 1975 and had enjoyed a long, stable democratic period that ended in 1989.
In response to the war in Vietnam, the Philippines declared independence in the early 1990s.
In 2006, President Rodrigo Duterte declared martial law to prevent the spread of the deadly virus.
Since then, more than 4,500 people have died of the virus, including many who died in the course of the military’s brutal drug war.
Many Filipinos have fled to the US to escape the fighting, and many have been held at the US naval base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, until the death of the last detainee was announced in July 2018.
The new government of President Rodrigo “Rody” Duterte also has been under international pressure over human rights abuses in the country, with reports that thousands of suspected drug users have been killed by police.
In October 2018, the Supreme Court of the Philippines (SCP) declared that the military had been committing “extrajudicial killings” against drug suspects.
In February 2019, a group of protesters, including lawyers and lawyers from the Philippines Association of Law Students (PALSS), filed a lawsuit against the Philippine president, asking for an investigation into the killings.
In November 2019, the president, who is now a senator, said he had ordered the SCP to investigate the killings and would seek to prosecute the officers involved.
In December 2019, Duterte ordered an investigation of “high-level” officials in the government and the military for “extraordinary crimes.”
The president also called for the arrest of all officers and their families who were involved in the killings, and said he was ready to meet with the families.
In March 2020, the SCO, a global body that represents the US and the European Union, approved a resolution condemning the killings by the Philippine military, and called on the government to investigate them and prosecute the perpetrators.
The resolution also called on Duterte to release the detainees and hold them for trial.
In April 2020, a judge in the Philippine capital Manila ruled that Duterte had the right to make arrests and to make public trials of the alleged drug lords, but did not order the SCS to investigate or hold suspects.
The president has repeatedly defended the killings in the face of international criticism and the court’s ruling, which came on the heels of an international outcry.
On May 22, 2020, Duterte signed into law a law that allows for the execution of anyone suspected of involvement in drugs, drug trafficking, or other criminal activities.
The law has already been used to execute
