I seem to recall the US Army predicted the conquest of the Japanese homeland would cost 1 million US casualties and 10 million Japanese casualties.

Horrible as the atom bomb was, it saved far more lives than it cost. Liberals don’t understand that some wars are justified. The only way to fight a war is to fight hard and fight to win. Going half-assed will just drag it out and cost more lives on both sides.

Japan started the fight, and we finished it.

Not only that, but the Soviets would have gotten in the fight, and we would have been talking about a divided Japan, just like Korea.
