What is the single most unethical mission that the US military has ever carried out?
nuking hiroshima and nagasaki 6 months after they already received transmissions of acceptable surrender conditions from the lead japanese diplomats that would end the war with zero more american lives lost and zero civilians nuked.
It was a total myth that the options were "nuke or invade", it was "nuke vs. accept very slightly less than perfect surrender from japan" and America went with the massive war crime of nuking cities for the hell of it.
I was there and enjoyed that.
>decided to research this
>"When the United States invaded Panama in December 1989, Noriega took refuge in the Holy See’s embassy on December 24, which was immediately surrounded by U.S. troops. After being continually bombarded by hard rock music, including Van Halen's hit song Panama, and “The Howard Stern Show” for several days, Noriega surrendered on January 3, 1990."
Oh my sides.
I love looking at the promotial crap from "lets build wells for water in africa!' filled with pictures of smiling blone housewives and poor africans.
What do you think is going to happen when you give them clean water... that they couldn't get themselves? Oh, they will breed like fucking rabbits and then demand you feed their children becuase they still don't understand farming?
The people who do that shit are only doing it for themselves.
I disagree. Haven't crops always been in abundance?
Starvation is usually an effect of neglect, right?
And primative tribes that don't have agricultural societies are really a very, very tiny minority.
>tribe creates X amount food
>tribe survives many generations on X food, with variations
>white guilt morons show up knowing better than tribe
>give food, water, wells
>tribe population explodes
>tribe now unable to feed themselves
But it is okay becuase the white guilt morons feel better then go home and don't have to think about what they have done.
Well we built irrigation for Afghaninstan in the 50s and it just lead to them growing a lot of poppy there and by the 1970s combined with the US war on drugs lead to a huge spike in crime partially.

We killed all those guys.
I'm sure those two bombers worse than going through with Downfall, invading the mainland, killing millions of soldiers/ civilians who took up primitive arms, and then using chemical and atomic weapons to clear out areas prior to US forces advancing.
The bombs were the most humane things the US could have done to end the war.
why do you come have a seat with me and we can discuss this bait and why it sucks
The Japanese deserved to be exterminated for what they did. They were literally worse than the Nazis. I am not b8ing or fucking around, they literally did every conceivable war crime in the book, and then made some new ones.
>random people that looked liked the people who did war crimes deserved to die
Things will only get harder after high school so i suggest you stop being retarded as soon as you can.
I'm an old man, I know it.
Here's an old photo of me exiting an aircraft.
Prove him wrong then. The Japanese were willing to negotiate surrender to the Soviets to try to secure some peace, but they had no intention of doing so towards the Americans or British.
Not until the bombs dropped did they offer full, unconditional, surrender. And even after that many officers in the Japanese Army tried to capture the Emperor and prevent the surrender message from being broadcasted.
You claim he's parroting what the government says, but you're doing worse and just spewing conspiracy theories with no basis.
Actually, those asserting it was necessary to nuke japan are the ones with the burden or proof.
Read it or don't. I don't care. It's historical fact the nukes were unnecessary and only done with the intention of field testing + a show of force against the soviets.
Nope, i completely agree with blowing the enemy all to hell. I just hear alot of ass pain from people who claim they were civilians and we murdered them.
Protip: an armored brigade just didnt even show up to the war after that. Civillians my ass
This is a squad of paratroopers on patrol during Operation Just Cause.
Yes, the nukes were unnecessary. There other alternatives to ending the war with Japan. Invasion, continued firebombings, blockading with submarines and surface ships to starve out the Japanese.
Those would all require much more time and would have lead to more American and Japanese deaths.
Any claim of Japan's willingness to surrender is negated by the fact they did not. They did not after the war turned against them, they did not after the firebombings, they did not after the Potsdam Declaration, they did not after the first Atomic bomb.
They were not ready to surrender, they were ready for a fight to the end. Teaching civilians to fight with spears or poorly made firearms, stocking up suicide aircraft and boats, and building defenses. Watch Day of the Kamikaze, they interview civilians who talk about learning how to fight with spears.
Perhaps the US wanted to see the effects of the atomic bomb, or show off to the USSR, but those were just side-effects of using the weapon to end the war.
>waps fought to the last even for irrelevant islands

git mo is a step back for america and just plain stupid
all the fucked up sanctions why the fuck would you have sanctions on baby food and medicine ? there were kids having operations in Syria with out anesthetics cos of the sanctions how evil do you have to be ?
I skimmed the article, all it says is that us military officials "felt" that japan would have surrendered soon anyway. I do not doubt that we wanted a real test and to show off to the soviets, but Japan was not about to surrender. Its not like they left guys to protect remote islands for decades or anything.
They necessarily didn't. Their country did, though.

My Lai was pretty fucked up. Imagine being the chopper pilot flying in to pick guys up and you see your fellow soldiers acting like literal nazis just executing civilians in lines.
it's not about farming you idiot they have farms but the area is affected by wars so the weat gets burnt so the enemy won't have anything to eat and the locals rise up (this is a blow back cos people get more united and pissed off, they did the same shit in keive they bombed the local farms and chicken huts so there was nothing to eat and people were starving)
the land is fucked up thanks to companies like monsanto (india where they can't subsidise the farmers; the farmers have killed them selves cos monsanto fucked them up they even kidnaped a offical and beat him up lol)
the food the farmers do grow is sold to or given as aid payments to big companies/western countries
I'm far from being a bad ass. I just did what any paratrooper would have done that day.

The good old "Japan wanted to surrender!" line.
>The conduit for this initiative was Japan's ambassador in Moscow, Naotake Sato. He communicated with Foreign Minister Togo--and, thanks to code breaking, with American policymakers. Ambassador Sato emerges in the intercepts as a devastating cross-examiner ruthlessly unmasking for history the feebleness of the whole enterprise. Sato immediately told Togo that the Soviets would never bestir themselves on behalf of Japan. The foreign minister could only insist that Sato follow his instructions. Sato demanded to know whether the government and the military supported the overture and what its legal basis was--after all, the official Japanese position, adopted in an Imperial Conference in June 1945 with the emperor's sanction, was a fight to the finish. The ambassador also demanded that Japan state concrete terms to end the war, otherwise the effort could not be taken seriously. Togo responded evasively that the "directing powers" and the government had authorized the effort--he did not and could not claim that the military in general supported it or that the fight-to-the-end policy had been replaced. Indeed, Togo added: "Please bear particularly in mind, however, that we are not seeking the Russians' mediation for anything like an unconditional surrender."
>This last comment triggered a fateful exchange. Critics have pointed out correctly that both Under Secretary of State Joseph Grew (the former U.S. ambassador to Japan and the leading expert on that nation within the government) and Secretary of War Henry Stimson advised Truman that a guarantee that the Imperial Institution would not be eliminated could prove essential to obtaining Japan's surrender. The critics further have argued that if only the United States had made such a guarantee, Japan would have surrendered. But when Foreign Minister Togo informed Ambassador Sato that Japan was not looking for anything like unconditional surrender, Sato promptly wired back a cable that the editors of the "Magic" Diplomatic Summary made clear to American policymakers "advocate[s] unconditional surrender provided the Imperial House is preserved." Togo's reply, quoted in the "Magic" Diplomatic Summary of July 22, 1945, was adamant: American policymakers could read for themselves Togo's rejection of Sato's proposal--with not even a hint that a guarantee of the Imperial House would be a step in the right direction. Any rational person following this exchange would conclude that modifying the demand for unconditional surrender to include a promise to preserve the Imperial House would not secure Japan's surrender.

I wrote a paper on this subject (not the guy from before), and from what I had gathered, the american government wasn't really sure if the Japanese were prepared to surrender or not, and they didn't want to burn an estimated 1 million men in Operation Downfall.

I'm a Westerner really, but it drives me insane when Northerners think they were undisputed good guys and Southerners are all racist slave owners.
People who support Sherman and his tactics are scum, even if they outcome was justified.
It's really not the Japanese. They know they were dicks deep down, although publicly they refuse to admit it, they know they have no ground to stand on for saying something another nation did during WW2 was bad.
They even refused to accept an apology when Obama tried to say sorry for Hiroshima.
When you see someone saying the atomic bombs were unneeded, warcrimes, etc. It's usually some liberal, westerner, probably a college student, who has no knowledge of how brutal the war was up to that point.
>Tell people from another part of the country they have to completely change their life style and customs
>Tell them they cannot choose their own policies/leaders
Really? Tell me, when/ what was this?
I certainly hope you don't mean you think Lincoln said he was going to end slavery when he was elected. He gave a speech and said that at some point in the future, the US would have to agree to either be all states with slaves or outlaw it (House divided speech). He said NOTHING about if he favored one side over the other, and even after the Emancipation Proclamation it only affected slaves in the Southern states in rebellion. It was a war measure to free slaves in those states so that they could not be used to help the South's war effort, the Northern states that still had slaves and stayed loyal to the Union had no changes to their lifestyle. Only until after the war and the 13th Amendment did those loyal states lose their slaves.
The South seceeding was nothing more than throwing a hissy fit and jumping to conclusions.
The South stomped the North's shit early in the war. The North didn't have any success until late '62 and '63.
Their right wing group tried to censor their history books, omitting all warcrimes and worse, making Japan look like the victim of the war. It doesn't help the fact MacArthur didn't try Emperor Hirohito, on the reason that such a "divine entity", deeply revered by the Japanese, be hanged could cause chaos in the country. It caused the Japanese to believe that their leader did nothing wrong and thus Japan as a whole did nothing wrong.
>Not being a total shit hole with widespread murder, rape, and gang activity.
>Has never been to Philly
>Thinks NYC is all sunshine and rainbows because he watches Friends
Do I need to continue?
Fun fact. The US was preparing in mid August to shift its bombing campaign from night time fire bombing to daylight attacks. Part of this was because there wasn't much that could burn in Japan left standing. Part of it was also that Japanese air defense had collapsed and American aircraft had more or less free reign over Japan. The plan was to focus the B-29s on Japan's transportation system, to stop what what was left of Japanese industry, and to cripple any ability to shift forces to respond to an invasion.
Now while "destroying transportation" might sound nicer than firebombing cities, in reality it probably would have been worse. In combination with the previous destruction of waterborne transportation through underwater and aerial campaigns, the Japanese would have basically no ability left to move food around. The result would have been mass famine.
That planned transportation destruction was also why people like LeMay and the Bombing Survey thought Japan was going to surrender pretty sound. But it would have been a surrender coupled with hundreds of thousands of starved civilians.
>it only affected slaves in the Southern states in rebellion
Fun fact: The parts of Louisiana under Union control did not have their slaves freed by the Emancipation Proclamation. They were specifically excluded.
Lincoln is truly one of the worst president's of all time. And his face is on the cover of this month's copy of National Geographic. Disgusting.
to be honest the south was synonymous with poverty and ignorance before the war. Contemporary accounts generally portray the south as a third-world country. It was the Ireland to the England/Germany that were the colonies north of the M/D line.
I believe the roots are cultural.
>be surprised when you get stomped
I think that's more relevant to the South, really.
>how did we lose?
>we only had a dramatically lower population and no industrial capacity
He did do some pretty despicable things, but his job was to hold the country together.
Praise him or damn him, either way he accomplished that job. Which lead to expansions westward, spread of railroad and telegraph, and more advancements.
And only a few people understood what it really was. He never mentioned surrendering, only that Japan was defeated. This came as a huge shock for the general populace, especially when they hear this from their leader who they revere as infallible. Doesn't really help when their government kept feeding them tons and tons of bullshit of how they were winning the war, even when B-29s started showing up and bombing them to oblivion.
No worse than Detroit, Chicago, or Baltimore and it also happens to have a rich history, culture, and pleasant climate with a lot to see.
Only bad because race bating yankees stirred up controversy.
Where did you go to school, boy? Mythical cities are not part of the Southern US
Graceland mother fucker.
It's funny how much more people understood the issue then than they seem to now.
Well, all of our military leaders and commanders unanimously agree the war was effectively won and the bomb was unnecessary. I'd say having all the people who are in positions of expert knowledge on the matter having the unanimous agreement does carry some weight.
>Under Secretary of the Navy Ralph Bird said: “I think that the Japanese were ready for peace, and they already had approached the Russians and, I think, the Swiss. And that suggestion of [giving] a warning [of the atomic bomb] was a face-saving proposition for them, and one that they could have readily accepted. In my opinion, the Japanese war was really won before we ever used the atom bomb."
>According to an account by Walter Brown, assistant to then-US secretary of state James Byrnes, Truman agreed at a meeting three days before the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima that Japan was “looking for peace”. Truman was told by his army generals, Douglas Macarthur and Dwight Eisenhower, and his naval chief of staff, William Leahy, that there was no military need to use the bomb.” “Impressing Russia was more important than ending the war in Japan,”
The japs would have surrendered weeks prior if we simply agreed to the retention of the institution of the emperor--which we ultimately agreed to anyways. The entire thing was simply a testing ground and also to wave a big dick in stalin's face.

>MORALITY of slavery.
Obviously the South seceded over the issue of slavery. But the North only disliked slavery for economic reasons. The idea that the Civil War was fought to end slavery for moral reasons is a total post-war fabrication.
It was more like
>third world dictator has outlived his usefulness
>starts fucking with US troops based in the country
>oh shit nigger it's on now
Also, anyone who uses the term "redpilled" needs to be killed in a FEMA death camp.
>most of that shit was propaganda just like germans americans and the british did shit too we don't hear about it cos it's propaganda
No it wasn't. 20 million people died in the Pacific War. 2 million were Japanese. Most of the rest were non-Jap civilians, and they did not die in traffic accidents.
>mfw my family comes from Philadelphia old money and I've lived in the South all my life
>mfw we vote straight Democrat
>the rest did not die in traffic accidents
That's how they felt, but the Japanese weren't really quite ready to surrender at that moment. Lots of hardliners inside their government, pressuring the emperor to fight to the bitter end. Hell, one of their actions on the Potsdam declaration was to "kill it with silence", which roughly translates to no comment. The fighting would continue, the kamikazes would continue, until the Allies become war-weary and negotiate with the Japanese on the Japanese's terms.
>Well, all of our military leaders and commanders unanimously agree the war was effectively won and the bomb was unnecessary.
All of those comments are post facto. None of them are contemporary (Leahy for example only comment about the atomic bomb was that it wouldn't work).
Meanwhile, the most important military official in Washington, Chief of the Army General Marshall, didn't think the war was effectively over and the Japanese were about to surrender. In fact he after the bombings and after the Soviet Manchurian invasion he still thought the Japanese might hold out. When Truman ordered that the third bomb not be dropped as soon as it was ready, Marshall agreed not out of humanitarian reasons, but because he wanted to start stockpiling them to drop on Japanese divisions when the invasion he still thought may be needed happened.
Meanwhile the Japanese Soviet overrture is again quoted as proof the Japanese were ready to surrender, when in reality it demonstrated the Japanese didn't have terms ready to give their own ambassador!
They were literally preparing their civilian population to charge US marines with swords. The nukes were us telling them that we weren't going to invade them and let them bleed us, we were just going to bomb them until they had enough.
Also, the firebombing of Tokyo killed more than both nukes combined.
>The japs would have surrendered weeks prior if we simply agreed to the retention of the institution of the emperor--which we ultimately agreed to anyways.
The Japanese already rejected that amongst themselves.
>They were literally preparing their civilian population to charge US marines with swords.
>Also, the firebombing of Tokyo killed more than both nukes combined.
That's a load of propaganda and you know it.
The Japanese wanted peace as early as 1943, but as usual you Amerifats wanted war and ignored the Japanese proposals until it suited them.
>Implying nuking Japan to keep the Soviet Union at bay is unnecessary
You misunderstand, my southron Neanderthal friend. I've spent time in every city mentioned in both that post and the ones replying to it.
My point was the fact that he felt the NEED to defend ANY city in North America by saying it's "no worse than Detroit."
That's fucking hilarious.
You don't settle for shit when people start shit on your turf. The Japs may have wanted peace, but they didn't want unconditional surrender, which is what the USA wanted after Pearl Harbor.
1943 is really when the Japs started realizing the tides had turned. You don't stop a war because the enemy, who attacked you first, tries to call it quits before they start losing.
It's like if Osama tried to call the US off after they started bombing Tora Bora.
>That's a load of propaganda and you know it.
>Governors of Prefectures could conscript all male civilians between the ages of 15 to 60 years, and unmarried females of 17 to 40 years.
>At this stage of the war, the lack of modern weaponry and ammunition meant that most were armed with swords or even bamboo spears.
>The Japanese wanted peace as early as 1943
Then tell me, why was the Japanese ambassador in Moscow asking HIS OWN GOVERNMENT as late as July 1945 if they were willing to accept something as basic as Korean independence?
Wounded knee was basically the last nail in the coffin for the American version of the holocaust and Drang nach Osten. The genocide of the native Americans is definitely the worst thing we have done.

uhhh how is rounding up hundreds of civilians and executing them for no good reason shruggable...?
Also that chopper pilot was the one who blew the whistle and told the officer there if his men lead that column of civilians out of the bunker (to be killed) he'd kill him.
I understand him, that shit is loud.
At my garrison we have a psyops unit, borrowed one of their speakers last week to play Russian music and speech on during a exercise for my grunts.
When the psyops guys told me that you had to wear earpro when being in front of it until you were 100 metres away or you could suffer hearingloss and develop tinnitus I thought they were joking.
I'm in a LRS national guard unit with a guy who got his mustard stain in Panama. He and my SGM went to Ranger Batt together and my SGM later was in Somalia when that blackhawk down stuff happened. I have to say the people that have really seen some shit are the most humble soldiers I've ever met. They don't talk about all the confirmed kills they have, how badass they are or constantly need to reference where they've been or what they've done. Whenever I get them to talk a little bit about what they've done it's like watching a good war documentary except getting first hand knowledge of it.
the lusitania? some shitty psyops like pearl harbor or tonkin. the us wanted war and thats how they got it. Europe powers were all K/O and wanted peace by 1916
A couple ships carrying war contraband is not worth sending over a hundred thousand young men to their deaths. The only reason the Germans started carrying out unrestricted submarine warfare in the first place was due to Wilson not doing shit about the illegal British blockade of Germany and allowing them to have their armed merchant ships fly under American flags. If America should have gone to war with anyone during World War I it was Britain. And the Zimmermann telegram was a proposal for a defensive alliance that would only have gone into affect if America had gone to war with Germany first.
Let's get this out of the way. Both the Germans and the Brits were complete cocksuckers.
America should of stayed out and let a white peace be forced on for both sides which would have been better for Europe in the longer run.
>Brits blockaded Germany which breached international law
God bless this amazing land!

>this is what the japs actually believe
The civil war was one of those situations where the truth truly does lie closer to the middle.
Pretending the south were completely innocent victims is foolish. However, for someone talking about "credibility", your assertion that there was no northern aggression doesn't lend you any.
The north was every bit as belligerent as the south, and exploited their advantage in representation before the war to basically strong arm tax revenue from uniquely southern goods.
Not related to your post but...slavery was at the root of many reasons why the civil war happened, however no one went to war over slavery.
I read somewhere that the involvement of US advisers in El Salvador actually reduced the number of massacres because Salvadorian officers actually listened to people telling them not to kill civilians when it came from experienced US officers who thought it was counter-productive.
Could be wrong though. I know we made friends with a lot of monsters during the Central American Crisis.
This isn't actually how it works.
Consistent access to food and health care decreases birth rates because you don't need as many children to ensure having a few of them survive.
Malthusian economics is a dramatically oversimplified view of human population dynamics.

Japs still wouldn't surrender after the second one until we agreed to maintain a role for the emperor.
You don't know shit about ww2.
Japan in its "surrender" had demands the US didn't agree to. That's how war fucking works. Don't like it, don't start it. Easy as that.
Also Japan never sent the offer directly to the US.

Lincoln didn't free ALL the slaves with the Emancipation Proclamation because he did not believe himself to have Constitutional Authority to do that in states that were under US Governmental control.
His legal justification, which held up to judicial review, for the Emancipation Proclamation freeing the slaves in the Southern states was that, because of the fact that they were engaging in open revolt against the Union, they were therefore US Military Districts, and he could issue direct orders over those states as Commander in Chief.
Therefore, the Emancipation Proclamation did not apply in the other states of the union, which is why he planned on a Constitutional Amendment to free ALL the slaves at once.
Lincoln was not only a pretty shrewd President, but also a decent strategist, both politically and militarily. Declaring martial law in Virginia literally saved the Union when the war had just broken out.
