    Yous should have mention Japanese homosexuality during Edo period. Homosexuality in Japan was social norm.

    Saw this on ted ed. Way too sweary for an educational video. It's your choice, and you can call me old-fashioned or whatever, but there are plenty of adults that will avoid using a sweary video with young people - probably more than the number of people who would avoid a video because it doesn't swear, so less swearing = more potential viewers. Shame, because there was a lot of info packed in to this video.

    *Japan fought a self-defence war*
    MacArthur's testimony on May 3, 1951 before the Armed Services and Foreign Relations Committees of the United States Senate,
    _There is practically nothing indigenous to Japan except the silkworm. They lack cotton, they lack wool, they lack petroleum products, they lack tin, they lack rubber, they lack great many other things, all of which was in the Asiatic basin. They feared that if those supplies were cut off, there would be 10 to 12 million people unoccupied in Japan. _*_Their purpose, therefore in going to war was largely dictated by security_*_ ._

    I agree with you on that point. There really wasn't much need to drop on such highly populated areas. I think that if they would have dropped on one of the islands that was only being populated by military their point would have been made. Then, if Japan had still been defiant after a few days, maybe target one of the cities. Not sure what went into the target selection process tbh. We knew from testing what those things were capable of doing, so I would think that they had to have had good reasons for choosing those two cities.
