  1. Whomever wants to claim America as “racist”, after World War II Japan got off easy while Germany was divided for 45 Years. Two nukes that saved millions more Japanese and Allied lives and probably cause Russia to invade the home islands and divide them is getting off really easy in the long run.

  2. If ever a third world war will emerge then all LGBTQ+ will be the soldiers because they are brave enough when they fight for their rights.

  15. Truman was a good President

  16. Why President Truman did not mentioned in the Visitors' Book of USS Missouri that the happiest day of his life was when he ordered Atomic bombs on Japan, when Japan had already told the Allied about its surrender. W ehave to think deeply as to why USA throw Atomic Bombs on Japan an Asian country as a test ground for Atomic bombs because he was member of KKK. Yes inhis youth Harry Truman joined KKK. History is not that what is told to us by You-tubers. If there is good than there is Bad also. And if some true facts of History is told to us, then much are kept away from us. This video is sanitized versiosn of History, where bitter truth is kept away and sweet lies are presented with topings. Hoever. I salute all the soldiers of every form of forces of all countries for fighting with courage. Wars are not good but theses are results of clash of egos of countries. Furthermore, we being normal country loving citizens criticize War, but there are few who loves Wars, those who make profits from Wars, such as companies which make Tanks, Guns, Uniforms, Ammunition, Military gears, crafts etc. etc.

  17. Thanks for the Pearl Harbor attack.

  18. I grew up going to church with an old man who was on the ship when Japan surrendered. His claim to fame was that general MacArthur once tripped on some barbed wire and he put his hand on his shoulder to keep his balance. Pretty cool dude, had some interesting war stories.

  19. This was honestly very beautiful

  20. MISSOURI…….The heartbeat of America..❤

  21. MacArthur "These proceedings are closed."
