Why would Obama apologize for NOT killing one million people? A heretofore secret cable dated Sept. 3, 2009, 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! First, Japan attacked the USA on Dec 7,1941 in a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. When you make the first move, you have to accept the outcome of your actions. Second, the Japanese also had a nuclear weapons program. So we were in race to develop ours first. Japan was losing the war, so I'm sure they would of used the atom bomb against the USA. Third, a conventional invasion of Japan would of cost the Allies many lives. Estimates go as high as 1-million troops killed in action. Why? The Japanese would be defending their homeland. A man defending his homeland is harder to defeat. He will fight to the death, and take many enemy troops with him. Fewer Americans died.
