And thousands went to Japan. Whats your point?
My late father was a Marine. He fought in Guadalcanal and Bougainville. He had to be sent to a hospital back in the states(nothing extremely bad but bad enough) He was scheduled to go back to the Pacific for the invasion of Japan when the bomb dropped. He was grateful for the bomb.
In the 90s he bought a Toyota. The wars over he said.
My point is that likely much of the U.S. armed forces would have refused to fight Russia once Germany and Japan were beaten.
