We had a war to win dammit! Controversial, but more American lives would've been lost without the bomb. They should've thought about on 12/7

So did I. I've seen both the 14th and the 15th. I guess it depends on which side of the International Date Line you're on.

Japan is one day ahead of us, no?

The 14th in USA is the 15th in the Japan, right?

I think so yes. Japan is the better for it in any rate. I must say that they are the most polite people I have ever met.
