It was incredibly bloody now. Read it yesterday. Described as the worst combat in us history. Yeah i'm terms of kate. Contradict the violence of it. Japanese combat combat deaths outnumbered the american deaths three times higher. Although american total casualties dead wounded actually see those of the japanese. But listen to this of the twenty one thousand japanese soldiers on iwo jima at the beginning of the battle to one thousand only two hundred and sixteen were taken prisoner the majority remainder or killed in action. Although it was estimated that as many as three thousand continued to resist within the various cave systems for many days afterward eventually succumbing to their injuries or surrendering weeks later Interestingly enough even during the battle during the blade bloody fighting in severe casualties there was a real controversy over whether it was worth it whether we could actually use it as a base. anyway But boy that. I haven't heard much about that. And that's the sort of thing that Do probably doesn't get his disgust as much as it should. Because you know how military stuff works e ass because nobody would want to be on the hook for you know. We probably didn't even really need to do that right. There is a guy named william pratt.

If you had a japanese soldiers in pillbox is buildings caves. hold up. There's no way to go in there with guns. at cetera. you go in with flame. Throwers a battalion would assign one. Flame thrower platoon with one reserve flame thrower in each group. Flame through operators were usually in more dangerous than regular troops as short range of their weapon required close combat And you could see the flames from long way away in the the other guys really did not like that and so they sniped them a lot but anyway Marines later experimented with flame throwers on tanks during the battle but crazy violent. You know you could go on non about it but Watch those clint eastwood movies. If you want to know more about the battle in the way it went because it's it was hailed as.

So we're recording this podcast on the twentieth of February. yesterday. View in the future was the the anniversary of the beginning of the battle of Iwojima which everybody's heard of because the flag realizing picture right and famous movie which comes out of the picture I suppose bright. Well, and the two are the to Clint Eastwood Movies About Evil Jemma are I need to watch those again. So good, really, oh, sweet God he two movies, one from the American perspective, the other from the Japanese perspective when cool idea, oh. Yeah. Yeah. Only Clint could get it done.

Had the upper hand on us at least at the beginning and the country was terrified. Right Martin possibility of losing the war and being taken over by. Japan. Yes. This is this is the stuff that just drives me crazy. With the way you know the mainstream media and some schools deal with history both things are often true. There was a tremendous threat to the homeland. And it would come over the west coast from Japan. If Japan had chosen to do that, probably would have been suicidal militarily speaking, but there was a huge concern about spies infiltrators, and the rest of it having said that the internment thing was horribly done and wildly unfair and racist and an awful, but it's like the the red scare thing which is always portrayed as just. Just, Paranoia and nationalism and stupidity. When in fact, there were communists all over the place in our State Department and our media and our government.

I combined the two titles into one letters from Our Fathers knew your son. Haven't you found a job yet? Let's see haircut. It was by the way, it's historians say the result of the of the battle was practically inevitable. Because we had America had overwhelming superiority, numbers and arms air supremacy. The Japanese could not retreat or reinforce. We had it surrounded but to actually take the island and use it was incredibly bloody now read it yesterday, described as the Worst combat in U. S history. In terms of can't contradict the violence of it. Japanese come about combat deaths outnumbered the American desk three times higher. Although American total casualties dead, wounded, actually seeded those of the Japanese But listen to this. Of the 21,000 Japanese soldiers on Iwo Jima at the beginning of the battle to any 1000 on Ly 216 were taken prisoner. The majority of the remainder or killed in action. Although it was estimated that as many as 3000 continued to resist within the various cave systems for many days afterward, eventually succumbing to their injuries. They're surrendering weeks later, interestingly enough, even during the battle during the blight, bloody fighting in severe casualties. There was a real controversy over whether it was worth it. Whether we could actually use it as a base anyway. But what? I haven't heard much about that, and that's the sort of thing That? Ah probably doesn't get discussed a cz much as it should. Because you know how military stuff works. Yes, because nobody would want to be on the hook for you know, we probably didn't even really need to do that. Right. There is a guy named William Pratt, who wrote a book entitled What makes Evil Jerk Jima worth the price. Andi, he said. It was really useless is a is a base and a couple other things, you know, But oh, my God, Afghanistan and this is one of our more serious podcast. Certainly, but Ask any of the guys in the Korengal Valley and in Afghanistan. Ask any one of the hamburger Hill type situations in Vietnam, where you grab a bit of land, then You know the general say no, it turns out we don't need that land. Really? So we're going to march over here. He spent hundreds of thousands of lives and grabbing that piece. You're right. This is a serious podcast. The Bronco Billy reference aside, Write you often don't know until it's over, though. I mean, there are lots of civil war battles you could look at and see and probably wasn't strategically necessary for all those people to die. But you don't You don't know that at the time. Always Well again. Thanks change. Obviously, the United States M to flame thrower was heavily used in this battle. As well as the other places in the Pacific. Yeah, it was. If you had Japanese soldiers in pillboxes, buildings, caves hold up. There's no way to go in there with guns, etcetera. I'm going with flame throwers. Battalion would assign one flamethrower per platoon with one reserve flamethrower. In each group. Flamethrower operators were usually in more danger than regular troops as a sort of short range of their weapon required close combat. And you could see the flames for a long way away. And then the other guys really did not like that. And so they sniped them a lot, but Anyway. Marines later experimented with flamethrowers on tanks. During the battle. But crazy violent. You know, you could go on Nana about it. But Watch those Clint Eastwood movies. If you want to know more about the battle in the way it went because it was hailed as pretty accurate. Portraying the Japanese armaments and what's the What's the word there? Their defenses will there ever have to be battles like that again? Would you just drop a tactical nuke on the island? Kill everybody and then go set up shop. I mean, if you're actually in a A battle for existence. I don't know. Oh Ri Alexis tension, but I don't know who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men or which one's more evil. We could get into a Hiroshima Nagasaki now if you wanted, but I would make.
