Oh, I forgot that the US must have attacked PH with copies of Japanese weapons to drag us into the war. You also seem to forget that a great number of Americans actually volunteered to join the war and didn't wait around for a draft board to "violate their freedom". I think you're confusing WW2 with perhaps Vietnam or other postwar conflicts (perhaps "Bush's war"?). WW2 didn't provide us with the luxury of sticking our head in the sand and hoping everything just blew over.

Also, you still don't explain how the war could have been realistically concluded w/o the dropping of the 2 Abombs, or at least some heavy lost of life via other means. I will take it that you realize that the US is not an autarky (ie completely self sufficient in natural resources) and sometimes has to defend it's interests beyond it's physical borders.
