Even if they did, you probably won't find any evidence of it. If people found out that the war could've been ended without the use of the most devastating weapons of all times, they would be pretty pissed off.

yeah that guy on the other forum uses it as an argument for anti-american crap and I want to disprove him but I don´t know that much about the pacific war.

Dying in name of the Emperor was the greatest honor so why would you propose a peace offer? And if they did why didn't the Americans negotiated about it? If they could end the war with a simple ceasefire then they wouldn't used atom bombs, right?

Unless they wanted to use them on real targets or there was something in the cease fire that wasnt right for the ami's.

because they wanted a capitulation so there wouldn´t be a revenge-ww3. also I guess they wanted to liberate countires sacked by the japanese and in case of a ceasefire that would have been impossible.

It was already decided at the Casablanca conference in 1943 that only an unconditional surrender would be accepted. Even if Japan had offered a cease-fire the US would have been forced to reject it. Though I seriously doubt the Japanese would even consider a cease-fire.

Ah right the casablanca conference. I sometimes forget it did not just refer to germany.

The Japanese didn't surrender after they got nuked, there's no way they'd offer a cease fire.

The usual revisionist crap - absolute fiction.
