THAT IS FUNNY, especially coming from you Ice. Here is your problem; history just doesn’t back up your assertions. So you cherry pick through history. You ignore the unpleasant realities in favor of this mystical fantasy upon which you have absolutely no logical or reasoned basis for, hence your heavy reliance on fallacious argument. The reality is Japan was preparing for a very bloody invasion of its homeland. It was arming civilians. Based on battle field experiences, less than 2% of Japanese troops ever surrendered. They fought to the death. On Okinawa only 7k of 120k Japanese troops were captured. Japanese civilians committed suicide on Okinawa as well. Between 40k and 150k civilians died on Okinawa. Put that into perspective, 120k people died in the bombing of Nagasaki and Hiroshima. You think if we would have informed Japan we had the bomb, they would have played nice and immediately surrendered. The fact is you have no basis for that fantasy. The facts are two nuclear bombs were dropped, and after days of debate the emperor’s ministers were still divided on the surrender issue. And after the emperor decided to surrender, his decision was not accepted and a coup ensued. By the way, there wasn’t a single Japanese physicist serving as a minister to the emperor. Japanese physicists were not making the surrender decision. So like your other arguments, you have a lot of chaff but little if any substance. The West had offered surrender terms to Japan months before the first nuclear bomb was detonated on Japanese soil. President Truman had issued warnings to Japan both before the first nuclear bomb had been deployed and after. The bottom line here is you don’t care about facts; evidence and reason…got it.
