    The admiral was wrong.
  3. Isn't East Eurasia our ally? Do I have the wrong month? Do they have November?

    Come to think of it, I bet there was a fear the Air Corp/Air Force would run around A-bombing various places and making wars last about a day and thus make the rest of the armed forces redundant Credit to the USA we didn't actually do that, for about 3 years we were literally KING OF THE WORLD.

    THAT certainly seems likely. Perhaps not widely known is how vicious the infighting could be. I wish I could find the quote from that era i read long ago - It was something like a new Navy officer shows up at the Pentagon. His boss asks him who the enemy is and he says "Germany? Japan?" and his boss says "Hell no - they're the opposition.The ARMY is the enemy!" There was some fuckery going on where the Army Air Corp decided bombers didn't need escorts, they ended up being shot down at a rapid rate to the point bomber crews were getting "lost" and landing in Switzerland for ski vacations, and they flat-out turned down using Corsairs as escorts because they were Navy/Marine airplanes

    Besides for that I doubt the *entire* command structure of the Navy even knew there was such a thing as an atomic bomb

    Someone help me with the logic: Republican strategy session: I think we proved Americans hate corruption and nepotism! Ivanka - Hell Yes! Jared - Hang on Ivanka, we might want to think about this for a second...............

    Absolutely. That would be ALL of Japan, not a city or two.

    He thinks what he thinks. My father was on Okinawa. If the rest of Japan was ANYTHING like that place the A-bombs would look trivial compared to what would have been left of Japan.

    How about baby steps - first thing is to reduce our nuclear weapon stockpile to just enough to make sure no one nukes us or our allies and make it clear that our doctrine forbids the use of them for anything but responding to other nukes.

    Even if they weren't misinformed, so what? Who could look at the results and feel happy about it? I strongly suspect that due to Japan not allowing USA based reporters to work from Japan* during the war and not wanting to publicize the results of our bombing campaigns themselves, this was the first look most Americans had at what we had been doing to Japan. The Tokyo fire bombing raids could have produced a shit-ton of photos of napalm-fried kids too. * weird little-known tidbit from the war, UPI or AP or maybe both were paying German soldiers for photos and stories somehow on the down-low.

    At some point you are going to have to realize not everyone shares your opinion and never will. I actually care very little for decades-old opinion polls answered by people with very incomplete knowledge. They probably didn't know all those people were going to be killed anyway, just over more time and with gelled gasoline instead of uranium. I am not sure if anyone realized back then how nasty Gen. LeMay's bombing campaign was. He even admitted himself he would hang as a war criminal if the Japanese ever got ahold of him.
