Thank you for teaching the truth! I have sometimes wondered what would have happened had we gone after the Japanese Emperor directly such as with the Doolittle raid---perhaps you have some perspective on that. Would you say that he was equivalent to their god?

Unfortunately, the Doolittle raid had relatively few bombers, none of the planes came back (couldn't land on the carrier). The only way to go after the Emporer was step by step through the islands.

Also, I recently saw a documentary that tried to say that the reason the Japanese surrendered was not the A-bombs, but the Russian invasion of Manchuria and their fear of falling into the hands of the Russians.
