comment Why did the Japanese expect the United States navy would attack the Home Islands?
@IanRingrose: In his 1943 State of the Union Speech, President Franklin D. Roosevelt reported that American planes were shooting down Japanese planes at a rate of 4 to 1. Given American anger over the "sneak attack" at Pearl Harbor, that was more than acceptable. The Americans (probably) would have accepted 500,000 dead at the expense of 2 million dead Japanese.

@FelixGoldberg: Compare the German treatment of British and Russian prisoners and understand that the Poles got the "best" of the deal. General B-Z explained to his men that Germany was about to lose the war, and they needed all the "friends" they could get.
