9. At this point, given the history of the war, quite posislby the ONLY just war

 

in recent memory, and that was quite accidental... what I take huge exception is the fact that people do not understand context.

I will be brutally honest, if the Germans, they were developing it, got the bomb in oh. 1943 and the strategic bomber in 1944... we would be talking New York.

If the Japanese got it, we would be talking a number of Western Targets, including Los Angeles.

If the Russians got it, Berlin is the obvious target, If we got it oh a year earlier, Berlin is the obvious target.

Yes, it was that kind of a war...

And the fact is that for multiple reasons the IMT in Tokyo, the Japanese Trials, were relatively small compared to Nuremberg, and part of it, was MacArthur understanding that you could not put the Emperor on the docket. Our demands that he go away... were forgotten like on the second day after the end of the war... if not as soon as the ink dried.
