A little disappointed in this article by Pat. Had we invaded Japan we would killed more civilians than ever died by the A-bombs.

Even after the A-bombs and Russia's entry into the war, the military in Japan still wanted to fight. Its only because of the unheard of intervention of Hirohito that Japan surrendered.

BTW, If we could dropped a couple A-bombs on Nazi Germany in September 1944, it was ended the war and saved hundreds of thousands of Allied, Russian, and German lives.

Truman did many things wrong IMHO, but this is not one of them. By his "coddling" of the Japanese war criminals, he set the stage for future mistreatment of American POW's in Asian wars.
