Most historians and WW2 Generals agree, Japan was in fact more powerful then US during WW2 and if it wasn't because by the time US enter the war, Japan was close to running out of nature resources and US have plenty, by been a large nation, otherwise, Japan would have won WW2 and despite US would still have nuke, the US won;t be able to use it, because Japan had the technology to shoot down any US bomber trying to fire a nuke, before the bomb is drooped, they just can't afford to build more of this defending weapon, by the time US drop the bomb, due to no nature resources.

Like your view. Japan defeat British in Asia, easily. Fought China since 1937, US only enter in 1941. So, I believe if Japan haven't already engaged China for 4 years, when US enter, Japan could have defeat US. Just an opinion :)
I ditto you. Japanese are more educated, smarter and well disciplined due to which they are equal to US and any other most developed nations in spite of the setbacks suffered during world war.
