68. I knew all that too...
I'm not sure how that relates to nuking Tokyo Bay rather than Hiroshima or Nagasaki though.

The Emperor would have learned of the destructive potential of the bomb nonetheless.

I had relatives in Britain when Operation Sealion, a Nazi invasion of Britain, was threatening. The Home Guard were taken to their posts and told "this is your dying point, when the Germans come, you die here".

How is that all that different than what the Japanese were going to do.

It's no mistake that the symbol for Britain is the Bulldog.
