Japan has been so obsessed with the false notion of its superior spirit that it has failed completely to consider the facts. Japanese spirit was inadequate at Saipan, Tinian, Guam, Yap, Palau, and the Moluccas. It was American spirit supplemented by American power which made victory certain.
Japan's leaders have too long deluded themselves with silly and unjustifiable ideas fostered only by their conceit and error.
It's high time that they become aware of American spirit!
