Anxious to make peace why didn't they just wave the white flag and surrender?
How long would it take for Japan to say: We surrender and will not harm your troops when they come ashore? I think the GI slated for the invasion knew the Japanese better.
Because as has been stated several times in this thread, they feared the Americans would hang the Emperor. Do you need to be reminded that the Japanese revered the Emperor as a God and that nothing was worse than being disgraced. They thought they had no choice but to fight to the death, thanks to FDR’s murderous unconditional surrender requirement.

Truman massacred all those women and children, then agreed to their only condition. Does that make sense to you?

How is unconditional surrender "Murderous"? I mean he was the man who called for the Pearl Harbor attack.


And as for "protecting the Emporer" I think you are talking about ketsu-go, the strategy of fighting one last decisive battle intended to inflict so many casualties on a war-weary America that it would relax its demands for unconditional surrender and negotiate a peace which would at a minimum, safeguard the Emperor, and potentially preserve the armed forces and shield them from prosecution for war crimes.


That's the alternative you support? Killing as many Americans as you can to support the Emporer, the man who made the call to attack Pearl Harbor, from any charges and letting their leaders walk free from war crimes?

Good God think!

FDR’s ignorant and murderous requirement forced the Japanese to fight to the death. They OBVIOUSLY feared FDR would have the Emperor hung. Do you know anything about the Japanese people? Rhetorical.

The Emperor was a god to them. They also believed nothing is worst then disgrace and surrender. It is their culture. FDR KNEW THIS, which could mean he wanted to completely murder all their people.

Believing their attack on Pearl Harbor warranted the wanton destruction of their entire nation, is proof you are uninformed and a dupe of the State.

What was his requirement? Unconditional surrender? Holding those who committed war crimes against the US accountable?

THEIR choice was to kill as many Americans as possible. Even after the first bomb, Hirohoto's cabinet estimated that no more than one or two additional bombs could be readied, so they decided to endure the remaining attacks, acknowledging "there would be more destruction but the war would go on". Seriously, how many Americans would have needed to die to make that statement?

You are saying that's the side you join with? The side who's leader's insistence against surrender had mothers jumping off cliffs with their children rather than surrendering.

The Potsdam didn't mention either way about the Emperor. The Japanese Government council gave their recommendation to Hirohito that they ask for one condition (Emperor keeps his position), and if that was met, they should surrender. The Emperor decided against that path of even engaging in any peace talks, and that continuing to wage a war and killing American soldiers was the best path.

Fuck their culture, and it was far more than just Pearl Harbor that shaped our response to Japan and caused us to demand unconditional surrender. Japan committed atrocities worse than the NAZI's. Japanese culture needed a drastic ass whopping and clear change to one that recognized western culture and standards of behavior. They needed western values beat and bombed into them.

Yes the murderous statist rears his ugly head. Incapable of reasoned thought, all he wants is blood for the empire.

Perhaps YOU can explain why after the "living God" ordered a surrender his worshipers staged a Coup to stop him?

No it wasn't a war crime because Japan was using those cities as manufacturing hubs for their war against the USA which is why not one court ever went forward with a case.

War is hell. Yes if you want to put your weapons industries in close proximity to schools or places of worship and put your people at risk, especially in an era well before any smart bombings, they are at risk of dying from the situation you put them in.

So no it wasn't a war crime.


And you said "defenseless cities"... Oh really. The Japanese army air service was in operation defending Japan until the day of their surrender. The entire reason more pinpoint bombing wasn't used during daylight hours was Japans night fighter force was weaker and anti-aircraft fire was less accurate at night. Literally the definition of defended targets.


What you are doing is lying to create your myth by trying to rewrite the past. PLEASE, stop lying ok bud? It doesn't help your cause when you need to lie to defend your belief.




Yes, I do feel bad for a child when a terrorist uses them as a human shield. No I do not think we should let the terrorists keep killing American troops because they have human shields.



Like Hirohito himself said “I feel sorry for Hiroshima citizens, but it couldn’t be averted"

Oh brother that is most murderous of you. So mass murder of innocent civilians on the scale of Stalin and Hilter is okay, because their government forces them to build armaments. Damn. That’s nuts.

I would guess if the shoe were on the other foot and Japan or Germany obliterated cities like Detroit and other American cities where our war machines were built, you would consider that just fine.

No the mass murder of Japan and Germany in their conquest to take over the world was not ok. And I agree with you 100% that Japan's methods of teaching women and children to strap bombs on and throw themselves under tanks if needed to stop an American land invasion was absolutely gross. To teach children to make bamboo spears and fight to the death rather than surrender was awful. So glad we did not have to live through that armaggeddon war their cabinet members wanted to send their population to their grave for. Their cabinets approval of drafting male and female children was horrible.


You are not defending any of the holes I poked into your reasoning using historical facts.

You tried saying those cities were defenseless. What are you wanting to do? Take the crews of the hundreds of planes shot down, find the families of those American hero's KIA, and tell them you are removing their graves, burning their bodies and erasing their existence because they didn't die by enemy hands since you want to rewrite history that those cities weren't defended?

And are you saying if the shoe was on the other foot and we decided to bomb a peaceful Japan? Enslave tens of thousands to build weapons, force child labor to keep our war effort when all was proven to be lost... And FDR was keeping that and breaking every Geneva convention signed in order to keep from losing power... That's your defense? Some fairy tale that doesn't exist in the real world?

No it never should have come to Japan putting civilians in harms way by drafting them into the war effort.

90% of the Japanese war production was done in unmarked workshops and homes which were widely dispersed within residential areas in cities. That's horrible. You want those leaders given their chance to get away scott free who caused the deaths of millions?

I've never seen someone so intent on letting Japanese leaders get away with their war crimes and avoid those tribunals at the cost of hundreds of thousands of American hero's and potentially millions more innocent lives throughout Asia.

Like are you death itself to push for your beliefs there... So some of the most evil men who walked the planet could get away? Gross.

No it wasn't a war crime because Japan was using those cities as manufacturing hubs for their war against the USA which is why not one court ever went forward with a case.

War is hell. Yes if you want to put your weapons industries in close proximity to schools or places of worship and put your people at risk, especially in an era well before any smart bombings, they are at risk of dying from the situation you put them in.

So no it wasn't a war crime.


And you said "defenseless cities"... Oh really. The Japanese army air service was in operation defending Japan until the day of their surrender. The entire reason more pinpoint bombing wasn't used during daylight hours was Japans night fighter force was weaker and anti-aircraft fire was less accurate at night. Literally the definition of defended targets.


What you are doing is lying to create your myth by trying to rewrite the past. PLEASE, stop lying ok bud? It doesn't help your cause when you need to lie to defend your belief.




Yes, I do feel bad for a child when a terrorist uses them as a human shield. No I do not think we should let the terrorists keep killing American troops because they have human shields.



Like Hirohito himself said “I feel sorry for Hiroshima citizens, but it couldn’t be averted"
Oh brother that is most murderous of you. So mass murder of innocent civilians on the scale of Stalin and Hilter is okay, because their government forces them to build armaments. Damn. That’s nuts.

I would guess if the shoe were on the other foot and Japan or Germany obliterated cities like Detroit and other American cities where our war machines were built, you would consider that just fine.

No it never should have come to Japan putting civilians in harms way by drafting them into the war effort.

90% of the Japanese war production was done in unmarked workshops and homes which were widely dispersed within residential areas in cities. That's horrible. You want those leaders given their chance to get away scott free who caused the deaths of millions?
So the Americans who were in the war machine, shouldn’t have been???

Think!!!

Lol no. We were not the powers starting wwii to conquest. That's not a reality.

Wow you are a loopy one. Still no response to the facts against your ranting huh? Figured.
You don’t know anything but what the lying state has told you. As such, you are clueless.

FDR started WWII. Look it up. Get informed.
