MacArthur fully understood the emperor's role in the pacification of japan.  MacArthur wasn't above judicially murdering the japanese commanders who beat him but he needed Hirohito.  He didn't need Homma and Yamashita.
The Christian church, in its attitude toward science, shows the mind of a more or less enlightened man of the Thirteenth Century. It no longer believes that the earth is flat, but it is still convinced that prayer can cure after medicine fails.

Like I said above, the person on the Chrysanthemum Throne was the key to a quick end to the war or an endless guerilla-bedeviled occupation. Regardless of his personal responsibility he was in the position to save many lives and allow Japan to begin to heal.

I've enjoyed the thoughtful discussion between you and Baruch.  I knew most of it, but a focused discussion is valuable.

Thank you both.  But you are right...

Real talk leads to real results.  Being a controversialist and a poser, isn't very valuable, but it can be entertaining.

In that case, I trust you entertained yourself, controversially.
