  • He's got a number on his leg, so he probably is taking a breathe while seeking inspiration during a competition.
  • Probably something like our Memorial Bataan Death March. If you haven't done it yet, ruck up and do it at least once in you life.
  • while i was in the army, i always said fack no to that idea...but now 6 years out and i have been considering doing something like that. gotta get in better shape first
  • Oh, I was in the best shape of my life. What was heartbreaking was getting passed by amputees. I was like, "That's just not fair, he's only got one sore leg, and I've got two." Ruck it heavy, don't puss out and do it light, that's what JROTC does.
  • Thats not why they were nuked. If they weren't a land invasion would have to be launched with casualty rate of the first 3 waves of 90%+. All purple hearts awarded were all made in preparation for a japanese land invasion, no new ones have been produced except for the ribbons. Thats why they were nuked, not because of human atrocities. Also they surrendered more out of fear of the soviets than the rest of the allies.
  • Source on the Soviet thing? I always thought they surrendered because the nukes, not to mention the fact that it can suck to live on an island when most of your supply ships are getting destroyed.
  • Ill try to find something, it was something that my World War 2 professor Randy Roberts (apparently he was on the history channel talking about WW2 once) was telling us about. This sort of talks about it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet%E2%80%93Japanese_War_(1945)#Importance_and_consequences Had both the US and Russia invaded Japan it would have turned into another germany in terms of the island being divided.
  • Oh man, what a hsit sandwich. The island was getting starved out, 2 nukes were dropped, America is at your front door, and Russia is at your back door. Both are ready to kick it down and divide you like a cake, just like Germany. Not a very fun place to be in.
  • Yea i cant even begin to imagine what that would have looked like. Also the nuke was why the bat bomb was canceled. Flaming bats of death, completely insane...
  • I'm pretty sure we fire bombed Tokyo after we nuked them, then they surrendered.
  • Hell, we'd been firebombing them for a while even before the nukes dropped. "War is Hell" and such.
  • He's standing fast.
  • 'SPARTANS! WHAT IS YOUR PROFESSION?'
  • DEBTS DEBTS DEBTS!!!!!!!
  • Hard to imagine that they used to be a superpower.
  • They seeded western civilization, I guess they felt they deserved a couple thousand year break.
  • So did ancient Carthage, but look what happened to them...
