Gumbatsu shi kokka sho! (Die for the military caste or live for your home and country!)
Because of overwhelming American forces, equipment, and supplies, effective resistance on your part is now impossible. We are therefore asking you to lay down your arms and come over to us. No soldier can fight when the odds are hopeless.
You have done all that you possibly could. Gumbatsu shi kokka sho! Don't throw away your lives in vain!
