    Unconditional Surrender my azz.................

    Let the Japanese negotiate to let Hirohito remain emporer. The war-crimminal remained in power until he died of natural causes.

    Same thing as allowing Hitler to remain leader of Germany.

    The Allies caved in to Japanese demands - Japan dindt surrender until Hirohitos status and safety was Guarenteed - the war criminal bowed before President Nixon - and vice versa

    Allies should have said - we dont make deals with abjectly defeated foes

    The Allies wussed out and let Soviet Russia occupy Poland; the invasion of which was the very reason that they declared war on Germany.

    Big-time cop-out and cowardice forthe allies to negotiate witht the Japanese for protecting Emporor Hirohito. Should have been hanged alongside Tojo.

    IN-YOUR-FACE affront to all the casualties to the war in the Pacific

    Well it could be that is more a "lesson learned" thing then "wussing out". After wwI, one of the most punative treaties, the Treaty Of Versaille, ever enacted, was imposed on Germany. Which in turn really messed them up..which in turn gave rise to a really really angry nationalist reaction.

    Or maybe not.

    Who wants to learn from history.
