( | mcllL Qf lokyo gives Americans cause for sober reflection It was an epic of American ingenuity, attention to min- iiteflolailre.soiii-cefiil.iess and cotirajre. lint it -ilso was a sinking demonstration of Japan's present inaccessibility from our raiding planes. Although we lost every'bomber {„ h lsi April's carrier- borjic alack against Tokyo, Yokohama and other Japanese cities, the: attack raised hopes that this was onlv the beginning Die American people had visions O f a'relentless assault thai would repay Japan for Pearl Ihu-lior many-fold and burn Nippon's cities to the !f roiind, eventunllv forcing the Jap to cry enough. tun-mt . Tlie altack gave Americans a £- needc<i shot in the arm at u time when our national fortunes seemed at a low ebb. it forced japan to maintain large numbers of fighters at home, Instead of in more active war IheatQrs. And it shook Jaiwnese morale badly just ns the Nipponese were beginning to believe the 'legends about their so- called invincibility. But aside from thai, it is difficult to the raid made any significant contribution toward advancing the United Nations cause. If we are to rely on aircraft carriers alone to carry the war to Japan, it probably will be" a long time before such raids can knock Nippon out of the conflict. ; ...<•• War Pattern Shown . • '.•'•'Now we begin to see in sharp relief the full effects of Japan's early lightning conquests' which 1 deprived us of land bases to rctnl- late against • Nippon's home islands. When the Philippines"'?fell, we lost a .base within 100 miles of Tokyo. The Joss;.of Woke 'island deprived ^Us' ~6f*1f'"Imse" abbuV : the' same distance from the Nipponese capital. Guam, which went under during the first. days of the war, was only 1500 miles from Tokyo. Kiska in Ihe Aleutians, which might be utilised for'long-distance raids against japan,'Is 2200 miles from Tokyo but is strongly in Japanese hands. The nearest unoccupied point in china from Tokyo is Chckiang Province, a full 1.300 miles away. Outside of China, tlial leaves us two land bases from which lo bomb Japan. ] The first is Midway Island in the central Pacific, 2500 miles as the bomber flics, from Tokyo. The second is Guadalcanal — a long 3600 miles away—out of the ques- Itoi at present as an effective bombardment base against Nippon. Thus, to s[>ciik of bombing- Japan's cities from land bases- is to speak of something winch at present Is infcasible, ,if not impossible, aside from China, because of the range factor. Obviously, carriers can be effective once in a . „,, • - -i i thT'^ter a^fC same "^ Eff °'' lS In Ca ™ S objective, the attacking carrier as well as all its planes might pay tlie price. Siberian Base Unlikely There is one oilier possibility which conceivably could become a base of attacK against Japan, bill tins is unlikely. That is Vladivostok in Soviet Siberia, a mere 675 miles from Tokyo. Since Russia still Is at peace with Japan, however, Vladivostok must be counted out. Major General Jimmy Doolittlc who led his intrepid filers on last April's epic flight, S aU1 recently- thai Japan can be defeated only by sustained bombing attacks on lier home islands. But he. probably better than anyone else, recor-- nizes the difficulties in the way of such attacks. He said the whole •problem is one of bases, until we get those bases, we might, just as well forget about, bombing Japan with any degree of continuity and effectiveness. Chins Our Chance As of now, China remains our best bet. But even 'China still cannot be used as a major plane base against Japan because of tho problem of loglslics—or supply. When Japan conquered liunna, she cut China off from all supply- routes with the outside world, save those maintained by air. A major air base requires enormous amounts of material and supply, not only to build, but lo maintain. Thus, even if the Allies were lo erect a big air base in Cnekiang Province to bomb Tokyo. it would require an uninterrupted stream of gasoline, bombs, planes, food and hundreds of other items from the oulslde. jn addition, i! would be under allack constantly from Jap air bases al Ningpo. Hangchow, Hankow and Nanking. Hence, to get at Japan, w c have F.D.R.'
