The noun form would be Scheißepost and the verb root would be scheißebuch, I believe. I'm sure one of our resident Germans (probably Helgo) knows, though.
Well, we have 'posting' as an anglicism, so it would be 'scheißposten', not to be confused with 'Scheißposten', which would be a shitty guard post. Where you  got Scheißebuch - shit book - from is beyond me though.

That would be the verb form of book (e: as in to record), which I think is a thing. I was trying to avoid the post/sentry post thing.

Then you should have posted the infinitive: Scheißebuchen (not to be confused with beeches made of shit). Buchen is like the English booking: You book a ticket, a table at a restaurant, etc etc.

Ah, I see. Idle curiosity, how does that interact with plural nouns?

And your green eyes flash with the flames of a thousand repressed memories. You have a chest with three locks, that you made, and yet you can not open it. You save and destroy, and where you walk wonder and disaster are equally sown. You have counselled kings, lain with the Fey Felurian, and conquered the hearts and minds of the people. Your Alar is the sea in storm, and you called down lightning against the Chandrian. Fey friend, demon maker, sorcerer. And yet, you can no longer defeat hired toughs when they trespass in your domain.

At least collateral damage doesn't sound like some retarded politician attempting to pander to the electorate.
I'm pretty sure collateral damage is the I'm-not-looking-you-in-the-eye way of saying civilian casualties.

Precisely. 3,000 dead is a tragedy, 210,000 dead is collateral damage.  ::)

And/or (vital) infrastructure damage, yes. It can be stretched to other uses, though, and is fairly often. Innocents for war on drugs, poor for tax reforms, environment for economy, etc., etc., etc. Oddly enough, of the ones OW was responding to, it's pretty much the only phrase "retarded politicians" actually use when they're attempting to pander to the electorate.

Reality is often stranger than fiction. [/half-assed attempt at defending my own credibility]

Also, my cat just crawled under my bedclothes and is now rolling around in circles (presumably) looking for a way out. I don't want to help her because she's warming up my legs.

why
Probably because they were starving and the Japanese military was callous towards non-Japanese even by the standards of WWII.
