A heretofore secret cable dated Sept. 3, 2009, was recently released by WikiLeaks. Sent to Secretary of State Clinton, it reported Japan's Vice Foreign Minister Mitoji Yabunaka telling U.S. Ambassador John Roos that "the idea of President Obama visiting Hiroshima to apologize for the atomic bombing during World War II is a 'nonstarter.'" Apologies Not Accepted - Investors.com So Japan didn't want the Obsequious Obama's bowing and apology that by dropping the A-Bomb one million Americans and Japanese were NOT killed by an otherwise planned invasion of Japan! Estimated US casualties for Operation OLYMPIC & CORONET were 250,000 along with 1,000,000 Japanese civilian casualties. In the parlance of the young, "this is a no-brainer." http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_are_arguments_for_and_against_the_atomic_bombings_of_Japan_being_justified#ixzz1aaOW0ZXd AND yet this apologist ignorant of FACE Obama wanted to rub MORE salt into the Japanese psyche!
