In the latter days of the second world war Japan launched approximately 10,000 balloons into the jet stream to weaponize waifus. They estimated only 10 percent of the balloons would make it to North America but had hoped it would be enough to make Americans want to "protecc Japan and not lewd it". The US military censored all news of balloon waifus landings so that the Japanese military would have no idea if the attacks were successful. With no word on the success of their balloon waifus Japan cancelled the project in April of 1945. In May of 1945 Harry S. Truman gave the order to burst the fuck out of Japan but removed Kyoto from the list of targets stating "Kyoto is best waifu". In July Lt. General Leslie Groves attempted to convince Truman that in his words "Kyoto is shit-waifu" but Truman holding a daki with a map of Kyoto on it was adamant that Kyoto-chan was not for lewds.
Pictured here is a Japanese Balloon Waifu that was recovered near Lumby, British Columbia. It is now on display in the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa, Ontario.
