@CaptKangaroo: You couldn't be more wrong if you tried!
Japan was READY for a long siege! A prolonged invasion and continued bombing. Their ONLY hope of avoiding absolute surrender was to bleed the allies in the land invasion until they allowed some terms.
It was a good gamble for them: Nothing to lose (except millions of dead citizens and soldiers)!
And with the War In Europe over? The average American Citizen wanted the War In The Pacific over... NOW!
The USA was also facing internal strife: negros and latinos on the West Coast (especially) were one step short of violent rebellion.
ALSO: Moral among the European GIs was TERRIBLE! They expected to go home! Not to the bloodbath in Japan.

A history book or three might do YOU some good, @Captain...
