I just read your link. It would have been a very bloody invasion with Japanese having home court advantage for sniping and guerrilla activity. Japan has plenty of mountains for fanatical guerrilla forces to hole up in for years

It is much easier when we got the Emperor (their god on earth) to surrender via A-bombs. He signaled the entire nation to stand down and surrender

I read the link and my thoughts went back to that Sept. 2 date. I was in a infantry replacement depot on Leyte. Many soldiers had anxieties about the invasion of Japan of which we would be part. The scuttlebutt was that very heavy casualties would happen. On that date I was about 10th in a line to pick up new combat gear. A Lt. came out and told us to go back to our tents as the war was over and no more shooting. Also ,no more concern about having to be killed. I together with many G.I.s at that repple depot gave thanks that our Country had the A-bomb and had leaders who were not afraid to use it’

Glad you made it back.

You might want to try chasing-down a copy of The Last Mission - it's the story about a B-29 mission that "sealed your survival".

This simply reveals Obama’s twisted sense of historic justice (White Man bombs another race, reparations due.

Obama believes he is the deliverer of historic justice for all wrongs historically perpetrated on other races by Caucasians. This is Rev. Wright theology.This makes Obama a nationalist for minority and ethnic power. He is a nationalist socialist, in other words , a fascist.

Historic justice is the calling card of every fascist leader of the modern era.

And so it is with Obama. He doesn't even realize that those responsible for such supposed injustice are dead now, and long gone. Obama wants the descendants to suffer retribution.America is in deep trouble, having elected its own nemesis.

Thats exactly why Obama is dangerous,and he seeks to destroy America.So far we are letting him do just that.
