During the closing stages of the Pacific campaign of World War II, Kamikaze pilots would attempt to intentionally crash their aircraft — often laden with explosives, bombs, torpedoes and full fuel tanks — into Allied ships. The aircraft's normal role was, essentially, converted to that of a manned missile in a desperate attempt to reap the benefits of greatly increased accuracy and payload over that of a normal bomb. The need to cripple as many Allied warships as possible was seen as imminently critical enough to warrant the cost of a trained aviator and his aircraft.

What i want to know is:
Is the suicide attack of the Kamikaze an act of loyalty and honor? or an act of stupidity and desperation?
Remember that some of the soldiers were unable to stand up and were carried and pushed into the plane by maintenance soldiers.

its stupid to have ur skilled pilots suicide.... its a honor to suicide for ur country if u think its a honor.... its loyal if u die for ur country... well for me... i wont do it./... my death will not give me anything.... infact... it would make me lose everything... so therefore... who cares about honor or loyality... tell the people who are at the top to pilot those planes instead....
