    This kind of rhetorical question begs the use of 20/20 hindsight. To be truly understood, the question must be asked within the context of the time, information at hand, and the assessment of intelligence that predicted what might have happened had the pursuit of "unconditional surrender" played out as anticipated. It is easy to judge and condemn from the comfort of one's own armchair many years after the fact.

    Unless someone in your family is murdered. I'd like to hear what your response would be to that.....

    For Dennis Bauer: Weather comes in quickly on Iwo To, especially at night. If the field goes IMC (instrument meterological conditions) and the aircraft could not safely land, that would constitute such an emergency. There are a lot of mitigations that reduce the risk however.

    gaijintraveller you are obviously a regional security expert well grounded in geopolitical reality. Your observation displays and intuitive grasp of the irrational/delusional. Obviously China and North Korea do not factor in your equation. Why aren't you in a government position rather than being just a "gaijin traveler?" That way you can have a real influence rather than posting pre-adolescent drivel.
