    Thank you, I'm sorry if you thought I was insulting your country or you personally; that was not my goal.

    when it comes to the category of "what if" there certainly is going to be a lot of speculation, even if your prediction is based on established facts. Just to give you a little idea of the industrial power of America though, take into consideration the fact that Yamamoto predicted that if Japan had not won the war within 6 months after Pearl harbor, America's industrial power would overwhelm her, even though Japan had manchuria and the dutch east indies.

    well i have to go, hopefully any future encounters will be more pleasant.

    Amen to that, You and your Family have a wonederful happy holidays, my friend.

    Yamamoto, if memory serves spent time in the US and knew that he openly spoke about the threat that the industrial might of America would mean and he was proven correct, by the end of 1942 the tide turned against Japan.
