Comment: A Rifle Behind Every Blade of Grass

A Rifle Behind Every Blade of Grass

Some (usually progressive) historians dispute Admiral Yamamoto actually said the following: (paraphrasing)

"You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass."

Also, I do not think the U.S. had 2 million men on ships fighting the Germans. The Germans did not declare war on the U.S. until Pearl Harbor and after the U.S. Declaration of War on Japan.
