“A Japanese soldier who hid in the jungle and refused to surrender until 29 years after the end of World War II died on Friday aged 91.” He hid until 1974. “He only gave himself up after his former commander flew out and reversed his orders from 1945, which had instructed him to spy on U.S. troops.”

This human drone was trained by the military to do a task and as long as the order stands, it must be repeated forever and ever. He would have made a perfect U.S. soldier.
