    Japanese Admiral Yamamoto said that he didn’t plan to invade continental U.S. because “there is a gun behind every bush”.

    ^ Your Japanese is faulty. What he actually said was, “There’s a NUT with a gun behind every bush.”

    Those “NUTS” became known as the “greatest generation”. Those “NUTS” take up the slack left by those who find all sorts of deferments because they think they are above doing something like serving in the military.

    Actually, there is no record of Yamamoto saying anything like this.

    @Zipi

    Yeah, sure, Yamamoto would have seen all those squirrel guns and cheap pistols as a fearful threat.

    “Japanese Admiral Yamamoto said that he didn’t plan to invade continental U.S. because ‘there is a gun behind every bush’.”

    The Japanese weren’t in a position to invade the mainland, but their military leaders were discussing invading Hawaii.

    @Jase99

    The book The Shattered Sword although principally about Midway, deals with this.

    They point out that the Japanese supply lines to Hawaii would have been very long, that the Japanese had relatively few merchant vessels to carry troops and supplies. Before the war most goods arrived in Japan aboard foreign ships. (Does that sound familiar, these days?)

    There were also something like 80,000 US troops in Hawaii, not counting Navy. The Japanese considered the notion of invading Hawaii, but no one made it a priority.

    Yamamoto was quoted as saying something like; “I am afraid all we have done is awakened a sleeping Giant!”

    “The Japanese considered the notion of invading Hawaii, but no one made it a priority.”

    Something Kameto Kuroshima would later call the biggest mistake of his life.
