Oh I'd agree completely with that. My point was the direct threat to Hawaii that would have been the result of a decisive loss at Midway should have been enough to change the strategic thinking of the U.S. Now just what the Japanese would have done in the aftermath of MIdway, and making hay while the US was out of action for all intents and purposes in the Pacific is a completely different hypothetical question. Personally I think they would have gone back after isolating Australia and strengtening its positions in the s.w Pacific rather than go after Hawaii or Alaska. What the Japanese would have done? No one knows but that sort of the point I was trying to make, could the US take the chance and concentrate on Europe first? I don't see it.Sorry, but no way.
The Japanese would not even have been able to supply Hawaii had they elected to assault it.
No chance whatsoever even under the most beneficial circumstances that they would have been able to supply anything on the US mainland.
