So? That does not mean they would surrender. Look at Germany. They were all but defeated in the last months of the war, but refused to surrender.

Given from what I've read about the war in the Pacific, you'll forgive me if I doubt the authenticity of some of those quotes.

Say what you what you will of it. After being interested in WWII for years, I am the opinion that it saved time, lives, and money.
