Who said invasion would be foolish Gun behind every blade of grass?
"You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a
rifle behind every blade of grass." is a quote by Isoroku Yamamoto,
Commander-in-Chief of the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War
II. Of course it was originally stated in Japanese, this is the
Unfortunately there is no evidence that Yamamoto ever said this.
There is a reference link below on this.
HOAX - NO PROOF IT WAS EVER SAID.
Apparently, there is no proof that this was ever said, that is
correct. However, it should be noted that Yamamoto spent time in
the U.S., attending Harvard for two or more years. He spoke fluent
English and had a keen understanding of the industrial capabilities
of the United States. He did not want war with the U.S. for this,
and possibly other reason. Therefore, while he may not have made
this now-famous quote, it is likely that he may have believed it,
therefore being a good person to attribute it to.
