And digging the Japanese out of the rest of the Pacific and Asia would have cost a lot more than those 1,000,000 Allied casualties. The Japanese Empire was a monster...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
