Poll: Americans Say World War III Likely

"WASHINGTON - Americans are far more likely than the Japanese to expect another world war in their lifetime, according to AP-Kyodo polling 60 years after World War II ended. Most people in both countries believe the first use of a nuclear weapon is never justified.

Those findings come six decades after the United States dropped atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The war claimed about 400,000 U.S. troops around the world, more than three times that many Japanese troops and at least 300,000 Japanese civilians."

Only 300,000 Japanese ciilian casualties? I thought there were more.

Well they did use the qualifier "at least", I guess to present a baseline number that won't be challenged.
I would not know what the correct number would be at all.
