Quantcast

Did you know that one of the major reasons the Japanese did not attempt to land troops on the American coast during World War Two is because they knew that Americans owned guns and would fight tooth and nail for every inch of shore line?

    Yes and it makes perfect sense.

    There was a Japanese General or Admiral who said they'd never do it because there would be an armed American behind every blade of grass. The same thing holds true today, the hunters from only a few of our states are enough to make up just about the biggest army in the world

    This is an interesting article I found. Guns are flying off the shelves, ammo is in short supply and the NRA is experiencing a flood of new memberships.

    why japanese didn't invade us mainland in ww2
    Thought some of you might enjoy this. It was an email i got a couple of days ago
    True story and most people will never know it.
    Here's an interesting side bar. After the Japanese decimated our fleet in Pearl Harbor Dec 7, 1941, they could have sent their troop ships and carriers directly to California to finish what they started. The prediction from our Chief of Staff was we would not be able to stop a massive invasion until they reached the Mississippi River . Remember, we had a 2 million man army and war ships...all fighting the Germans. So, why did they not invade?
    After the war, the remaining Japanese generals and admirals were asked that question. Their answer...they know that almost every home had guns and the Americans knew how to use them.
    The world's largest army ... America 's hunters! I had never thought about this....
    A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion:
    There were over 600,000 hunters this past season in the state of Wisconsin ...
    Allow me to restat...

    Allow me to restate that number.
    Over the last several months, Wisconsin 's hunters became the eighth largest army in the world.
    More men under arms than in Iran ..
    More than in France and Germany combined.
    These men deployed to the woods of a single American state to hunt with firearms, and no one was killed.
    That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan 's 700,000 hunters,
    All of whom have now returned home.
    Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that the hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world.
    The point?
    America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower.
    Hunting -- it's not just a way to fill the freezer. It's a matter of national security.
    *****************************...
    That's why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed.

    Food for thought when next we consider gun control.

    Yes but today is different. I trust my government to protect me.

    Incorrect. They had no planes capable of reaching the United States and no refueling points close enough to the Western Coast.

    Not to mention a complete lack of the kind of maritime lifting power necessary to even contemplate a landing on the continent. Nor was there any wish on the part of the Japanese to invade, all they wanted was to kick out the European and American imperialists from their Asian colonies so that they could rule in them in their place.

    There was a quote I heard long time ago. One of the Japanese generals said " I wouldn't invade America! There's a gun behind every blade of grass". Invade America and the sleeping giant will wake up and hand you your ass on a plate!
