Re: Japanese Invasion US mainland

RF, I appreciate the your post. However, I will challenge the idea that the Japs and the Germans did not have a close relationship. For example, engines and components of the Meizerschmidt jet were sent to Japan via U - Boats in 1944/ 45. Elementary history books treat Hitler like a Sergeant Schultz...

Re: Japanese Invasion US mainland

The V2 Rocket used by the Germans, beginning in 1944, was light years ahead of anything the communists or the western democracies had in their arsenals. While certainly, America used enough bombers - and bombs to kill 25 million human beings (mostly innocent noncombatants) during the Second World Wa...

Re: Japanese Invasion US mainland

Von Brahm, the creator behind the V2; was captured and sent to America at the end of the Second World War. Some of his assistants were captured by the Red Army and sent to the Soviet Union. These captured scientists provided the U.S. and USSR with the technological means to create missiles. The resu...

Re: Japanese Invasion US mainland

I thought that I was responding to a a hypothetical scenario: "Japanese Invasion of US Mainland." The only way that Japan could have invaded the US Mainland would have to had involved, first the use of of German I.C.B.M.'s [Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles] smashing against American cit...

Re: Pearl Harbor Conspiracy Theory?

Pearl Harbor was, absolutely, the event that brought America into the Second World War. Without the attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States would 'NOT have opentered the Second World War. I am convinced of this. Because of Pearl Harbor, the American people, and all of the industrial might of the U...

Re: Final days for the Big E

Jim Morrison. the lead singer of the band the Doors, had a special relationship with the Big E. His father was her C.O at one point. (one of the youngest officers, at his time, ever to reach the rank of Captain). I wish I could bring up the picture at this site; but there is a very famous picture of...

Re: Are the bad guys on the move again?

The Soviets murdered 20 million people. Lenin, himself, signed off on the deaths of thousands of Russians after the Bolshevik Revolution. And Stalin made Hitler look like statesman. One of my favorite books concerning the truth about communism is called "The Cancer Ward." The author compar...

Re: Japanese Invasion US mainland

I can think of a [chess move] in which the Japanese could have invaded the U.S. mainland. But the move would have to be more of a reponse than a divized 12/ 1941 move. The invasion of the U.S. mainland by the Japanese could only come in the sequence of more devastating blows to America. It is import...

Re: The ten most powerful navies in the world

Why do some commentators put China on their list for ten most powerful navies? China barely makes the list of Top 10 Navies within its' own region. 1. U.S. Seventh Fleet, based in Yokosuka, Japan 2. Japan, JSMD (the 2nd largest surface fleet in the world). 3. India 4. Australia 5. South Korea 6. Tai...

Re: The ten most powerful navies in the world

There are several ways to measure modern military power, thus it is not an easy task to rank the world navies, however there are, arguably, two exceptions to this task when it comes to the 21st Century: (1) Forward Force Projection [FFP] and (2) the ability to use a nuclear weapon against one's foe(...
