>Japan held their honor high. If their nation was directly invaded, they would fight to the bitter end. Just as if America was invaded today. Not only would the invaders have to deal with the Military. But Gangs, Rednecks, and damn near anyone who is willing to fight for their country, or their home.

This is a common perception, but it's not all that clear. Many things point to Japan being very afraid of further Soviet invasion. The Red Army approaching often increased people's will to surrender to the western powers dramatically.

I don't particularily mind the US using nukes those two times though. War is messed up, not using nukes won't magically make everything nice in any case. This doesn't make me think Nagasaki was necessary though.
