    Precautions, yes. Doesn't mean it could have been pulled off.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Our Army was not even well armed... there were no mines and very few artillery placements.

    I didn't say it would be a good idea or a success... just that it was a worry and that we were not prepared.

    Not sure how some corn huskers would have faired versus the suicidal fanaticism of the brutal Japanese though...

    80% of the Second World War was fought on the Eastern Front between Germany and the Soviet Union.

    How is this even a question?
