I think the results after WWII crush that argument. We may have wiped out two cities, but we never set out to conquer a swath of the world once we won like Japan did. In my opinion, that does not fit the definitions of becoming "fanatics" ourselves.

Like LIAYD said, it's a completely different situation that connot be applied this one.

I also notice you've ignored the points I made a few posts back.

You are definitely right, LIAYD. I was only using that as an example of how since the blitz didn't work on Britain, it would have worked even more poorly on the Japanese.
