If you did a bit of reading you'd find out that the Japanese were more than willing and capable of defending Japan, island by bloody island. Millions of Japanese civilians would've died, not to mention the Japanese and Allied military casualties, if the Americans had been forced to take Japan by force.
Origin and causes of the conflict.
The origin of the controversy began over the status of Sakhalin Island, a large island northwest of Hokkaido. In 1875 Japan ceded the island to Russia in exchange for full possession of the Kurils. Following the Russo-Japanese war of 1905, Japan regained sovereignty of parts of Sakhalin Island, and took control of the entire island in the wake of the Russian Revolution in 1917, abandoning it however, in 1924. By the end of the Second World War, the Soviet Union once again took over Sakhalin, along with the Kuril Islands, forcing the Japanese population out of the region.
After World War Two, the San Francisco Peace Conference included Japan’s agreement to give up any claims on either of the two islands north of the four closest to Japan: Shikotan, Etorofu, Kunashiri and the small Habomai island group. However, the Soviet Union refused to agree to sign to the terms of the peace treaty.

Mr Wupy, I was able to read the entire thing at work lunchtime. He just asks for donations to help.
Do i think a nuke is gonna be set off in a major city, sure do. But as always these are just my opinions.
Now how would he know Aden wasn't a person? If he knew it was a place then he would of found out quite easily (google etc) that it's a city and if he was searching the reverse speech for place names, he would have known of Aden to pick it out including how it's spelt and pronounced. It's a clever con to make you do a search and think " wow Aden thats, in Yemen - he must be right!" Should'nt he of found this out, seeing as he's apparently spent hundreds of hours on research. Could this prove a hoax? I smell BS- clever BS none the less.
There’s some kind of covert connection with Saudi people via Aden, but I’m not sure if Aden is a city, or a country
which is a bit careless, after all he could still be onto something from his ideas and observations (ignoring the reverse speech bit).
Based on the alleged evidence posted on this site I can state quite categorically that there will be no nuclear attack on US soil in April 2006
