” . . . the war situation has developed not necessarily to Japan’s advantage.”
WHO? Japanese Emperor Hirohito on August 14, 1945 (the day of the surrender to the Allies).
I looked it up on Google and the timeline went like this:
August 6, 1945 - Americans dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima.
August 8, 1945 - The Soviets declared war against Japan.
August 9, 1945 - Americans dropped the second atomic bomb, on Nagasaki.
August 14, 1945 - Hirohito made the above comment and on the same day surrendered to the Allies.
