Japan would have ****** itself into oblivion before it surrendered, more would have died on both sides then any 2 nukes could do, and much more painfully.

First bomb was dropped without warning, as to withhold the shock value. The only warnings we gave them before that were for the firebombings that we were doing. The second bomb we gave them warning for.

I agree with your points, and I am someone who fully supports the decision of dropping the bombs, but it's just a topic I know very in depth and I needed to correct you

Thinking japan had a king 10/10 history knowledge. Also the main reason most of those things happpened was the emperor. If they would have bombed the royal palace it would have made more sense.
User avatar #109 to #34 - theshadowed (05/18/2014) [-]
Perhaps, though we don't know that. Also, were 2 nukes necessary? A warning could've been gave after the 1st one, maybe Japanese dignitaries given a showing of a nuclear test to warn them, just frighten them off.
User avatar #125 to #109 - sharklazers (05/18/2014) [-]
first nuke was to make 'em stop, they still didn't stop so they dropped the second nuke on nagasaki. that one had dual purposes : make them stop once and for all, and to show the ruskies who was boss
#110 to #34 - Rascal (05/18/2014) [-]
Just because someone else is committing atrocious acts doesn't justify your own acts of genocide. The Japanese never slaughtered millions of American civilians. If the bombs were dropped on military targets then people wouldn't have had as much of a problem with it, but they didn't. They purposely targeted civilian populations to kill as many people as possible, innocent or not.

I notice how you're not supporting 9/11, by posting all of America's evils, when it's the exact same situation only America was on the receiving end instead.
#115 to #110 - stallioncock (05/18/2014) [-]
I'm pretty sure the U.S chose the cities as bomb targets because they held a lot of military factories and **** like that. Therefore by bombing them, they can't reinforce their soldiers.
#119 to #115 - Rascal (05/18/2014) [-]
Hiroshima was chosen because it was a large industrial city with a large urban population. Nagasaki was chosen because they wanted to see if the hills in the location would focus the blast. But both were intended to cause as much damage as possible by choosing targets that had not been targeted by firebombing. So, hitting them where they felt safest.

Roosevelt had cut Japan's oil supply because we had warned Japan about invading China and violating their sovereignty...which they did.

Our response was cutting their resources, because several years back 1899 and onward John Hay, the Secretary of State under McKinley at the time, enforced and signed in the Open Door Policy note that protected American interests in China by clarifying China's "doors" need to stay open to everyone in the world to prevent invasions of China to protect interest.

...need to tell the whole story.

User avatar #166 to #118 - thatoneiranianguy ONLINE (05/18/2014) [-]
Also Iraq (2003 invasion) was another issue mostly unrelated to 9/11, and a result from years of previous post-WWII foreign policy in regards to Communism and Iran (Iran-Iraq War, we propped Sadaam, funded him with chemical weapons to fight the Iranians with.)

This followed by the Gulf War, which was the defense of Kuwait, and a combination of internal government politics, we destroyed Iraq and Sadaam, but didn't take the chance to get rid of any chemical weapons he may have still had (which we gave him) and take Sadaam out (whom of which we propped up.)

In many ways, these were contributions to the 2003 Iraq Invasion.

Seriously, do you even history?

Again, the US SUPPLIED ALL THE ALLIES WITH WEAPONS TO GET US OUT OF THE GREAT DEPRESSION. Then we kicked their ass. Do you guys not realize how important weapons are in a ******* war? AND we showed up, and kicked their ass as well. You're just ungrateful of the guys that gave you the guns to shoot them with. You do realize without the ENTIRE US NATION making weapons for you all, you WOULDN'T HAVE HAD ENOUGH WEAPONS. Jesus, what a bunch of ungrateful pricks.

User avatar #39 to #31 - kungfulouie (05/18/2014) [-]
Anon is kind of right actually. We gave our allies an incredible amount of different weapons, and we were doing that as soon as the war began, providing them with the things they lacked and needed to defeat the Nazis while appearing to remain neutral to be more effective. We fought the war from the beginning not only by massively helping out the greater cause of the people on the right side, but also got ourselves out of the Great Depression. Nationally, it was a brilliant plan, and it worked great. We also fought them in person, quite well at that. It's just that our first moves in the war were kept in secret, and still remain quite frequently unrecognized.
User avatar #94 to #39 - irico (05/18/2014) [-]
"Gave" implying you didn't charge extremely high rates for the supplies and the money you made from WW2 is what caused you to become the superpower it is today. Also you were extremely reluctant to join the war at all, you had a policy of extreme isolationism after WW1. The only reason you joined was because you needed to save face after Pearl Harbor.
User avatar #128 to #94 - kungfulouie (05/18/2014) [-]
Not really. While we did charge for the weapons we supplied, we charged necessary prices as we were supplying the war effort and fixing the collapse of our nation. Keep in mind that we were literally the Allies secret weapon. And while the money we made did get us out of the Great Depression (which was important for us to do), technically allowing us to become a superpower, that's because it stopped us from starving to death. Of course, that's ignoring all of the technological and scientific advancements we made, both during and since WWII, and there have been a lot, but I can secede to the "we needed to end the Great Depression" point I guess, because we did, so you can sort of have that one.

What I will not agree to is your point of "saving face" being the only reason we joined. The president's plan was to fight the Axis, he just kept that a secret for us to appear neutral to them, so we could freely supply all of our Allies with the supplies they needed, with as little interference as possible. It was a brilliant tactic. That is the reason America's early role is often overlooked, as it was intentionally in cognito. We had clearly chosen a side. To say otherwise is to insinuate that the rest of the Allied war effort wasn't incredibly grateful for what we did, even if only a select few people knew we were doing anything. That was the plan, and it worked.

So even if we weren't on the front lines as long, do not discredit us, as the few people that knew the plan never would. And then, once we started sending troops along with our secret weapons, all the Allies together **** stomped the Nazis, and Hitler decided to take the pussy way out.
User avatar #123 to #94 - demigodofmadness (05/18/2014) [-]
The really reason the government sold those supplies was to provoke one of the axis into attacking us, so that we could retaliate without the people being upset we broke our policy of isolationism. The reason we waited so long to join was to save face, not the retaliation itself.
User avatar #135 to #123 - securityexplain (05/18/2014) [-]
Wouldn't provoking work better if you gave the supplies, rather than sold them? Selling them looks a lot like war profiteering, and if I were a country, I wouldn't really be mad if someone was making money for it. At least I knew that they're in it for money.

Giving away stuff to my enemies during a war, well... I would know that they're out to get me, and would retaliate accordingly.

So, yeah, I'm just going to assume you're full of **** .
User avatar #179 to #135 - demigodofmadness (05/19/2014) [-]
It's more about that they were selling supplies exclusively to allied members. Making it seem like an unofficial alliance.

Let's put it in smaller terms, if you're about to fight some dude, and some guy offers to sell the guy a semi-automatic rifle, and doesn't make the same offer to you, are you saying you'd really say, "Ah well, he's only in it for the money, can't hold anything against him."?

Because if so I'm going to assume you're full of **** .

Half of the US population at the time didn't want to get involved in another European war. It would have been bad if FDR forced an unwilling nation to fight a war they didn't want to.

If they were allies they would have declared war on France and England along with Germany. They were not allies. They just decided to write a truce while they dealt with other things. Everyone knew, including Stalin, that Hitler would attack at some point.

He phrased it wrong and if that's the case then explain to me why Russia helped Germany invade Poland, Sweden, and most of Eastern Europe? No **** they were wary of each other, one was starting a world ward, the other was being plotted against.
User avatar #71 to #70 - damping (05/18/2014) [-]
He didn't phrase it wrong looked further below. He talks about how the US "swooped in towards the end."

Stalin and Hitler knew they would go to war at some point. Stalin wasn't ready yet so there was a tentative peace between the two. Hitler also wanted to take France before hitting the USSR to avoid a WW1 style two front war. They hated each other, but it was beneficial to wait a little bit for both of them. Dividing up Poland was to appease each other.

oh don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it was a bad move on the US's part. from the perspective of the US it was the best choice for them to swoop in towards the end with the appropriate preparations, I'm just not fond of the whole "America saves the day" misconception that people seem to have without taking into account that the only reason they got involved at that point is because japan brought them into it.
#21 to #6 - Rascal (05/17/2014) [-]
The US didn't "save the day", but their role was absolutely crucial to the success of the allies, mostly for the supplies they gave towards the beginning, but also a large part given to their military's success in defeating a, debatable, weaker Germany.

The US played just as large of a role as any nation did.
User avatar #8 to #6 - IamSofaKingdom (05/17/2014) [-]
Before Japan attacked the US they were already sending supplies and such to the English and had been attacked at sea several times by the Germans who were trying to prevent them from receiving anything. America didn't deploy but they made their side of the conflict obvious long before entering and that is probably why Hitler had already drawn up plans for invading the US after conquering Europe.

Does anyone know how WW2/Pearl Harbor is taught in Japanese schools?

In the US we learn that Japan and the US were involved in peaceful negotiations (that the Japanese were only using to distract the US). We're taught that they attacked without declaring war and that such an act is a war-crime/terrorism.

Basically, we were taught that the Japanese were a bunch of pussies.

But in all the movies I watch and stuff I hear, Japan is supposed to be all about 'Honor'? Naturally, the US beat the hell out of Japan, and Japan got some atomic bombs dropped (U Mad Bro?). Then the US helped them rebuild and we all became pals. Japan built cool cars and video games.

But yeah, I always wondered how Japanese schools cover it....

Germans and Nazis isn't the same thing. Germans back then didn't approve of Hitler, the Nazis did tho, and they still do.
User avatar #140 to #138 - lotengo ONLINE (05/18/2014) [-]
The Nazi's were a political party that got the majority of the votes.
So Hitler was to Germany, what Obama is to modern day USA.

So not all of the Germans were Nazi's, but most of them were. And all it takes is most of them.
User avatar #145 to #140 - Funnel (05/18/2014) [-]
Well that's not a fair comparison now is it, nor is it accurate.

The Nazi party managed to get 3% of Germans support, quickly dropping to 2.6%, he then managed to buy votes all the way up to 43.9% of the votes, at which no more people would support him, spite him pumping money out his ass, so he started threatening and killing off his competition and everyone who gave him bad press, and still ended up losing to Paul von Hindenburg, who got 53% of the votes.
And keep in mind this was before the public knew of his crimes, Germany thought he was just a normal politician, who raised a lot of money to end the great depression in Germany, saving about 1/3 of Germany from starvation.

Hitler got power the only way he could, through threats and violence and buying people off, without it he would never get close to getting any power.
User avatar #146 to #145 - Funnel (05/18/2014) [-]
Additional info: even tho the Nazi party got a lot of votes, only 7% of the population were actual nazis, and almost none of the nazis knew of Hitlers military plans, all they heard was the political mumbo-jombo about how the nazi party would end the great depression and bring wealth to Germany, pretty much no one knew of the experiment, torture and the concentration camps etc.

Since in the mid-30's they made it into an official crime not to own and know "Mein Kampf", I doubt that.
Hitler published his plans for the Holocaust and for the "Lebensraum Ost" in this book and forced everyone to read it...
User avatar #169 to #163 - Funnel (05/18/2014) [-]
You sort of answered this yourself "crime not to own" "forced everyone to read it".

That was after he had gained his power, by then he owned the military and executed anyone who disobeyed him, his military had an iron grip on the country, not only functioning as an army, but as germans police, functioning as judges and executioners.

It was in other words, too late.
