Because, you know, the Germans weren't on the offensive in Russia until 1943 or anything... Didn't we already go over this? First I have ever heard of the Japanese initiating peace talks, conditional or other. But assuming for a minute that it might even be true, you lose all credibility with your next statement. Exactly how courageous was the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor? Exactly how courageous was the Bataan Death March? Exactly how courageous was the use of prison ships loaded with American and allied POWs as screening vessels in an attempt to prevent US submarines from torpedoing Japanese carriers and battleships? You do not care about how the Afghan women and children were treated... until the US showed up. Nice, good to see you have some objectivity. For the record, the US was quite content to allow the Taliban to murder their own people... until they allowed Al-Qaida to set up in their country and became a threat. It was exactly for reasons of (US) sovereignty and (US) security that we went it. And yeah, if Hitler had invaded a Jewish homeland after Jewish terrorists had blown up thousands of innocents in Berlin, that might have been somehow more acceptable. But he didn't - he simply gathered and murdered millions of them from all over Europe without provocation of any kind. If that is not the definition of evil, then what is? I'm done with this, have your last word if you wish.
