The internment of Japanese Americans is the right choice, and those who are against it do not understand the current situation. Our country is leading a war with Japan, why cannot we punish those who belong to our competitors? Foreign soldiers do not have mercy on children, women, and elderly people, then why should we spare their congeners? According to Nicholas Taylor, Japanese Americans do not even resist the internment themselves, why should we confront it then (91)? Therefore, the internment did not mean genocide; Japanese people worked on plantations and had acceptable living conditions, and some of them, who proved their aptitude, was even released and financially supported.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt was a wise man and made decisions based on what was best for the United States, therefore, Americans should trust him and let him lead our country to victory. Although the hostilities do not take place on US territory, we should secure ourselves against the possible outbreak of severity from the Japanese Americans’ side. American nation’s needs should be prioritized as this is our ground, our country, we protect our children and families, and every person puts his necessities before others. To conquer, we need to exclude any possibility of defeat, and internment is one of the strategies for achieving victory. American soldiers fight in Japan and die there for the USA, therefore, we should undoubtedly support our protectors. Politics played a great role in this war, FDR made most decisions, and we as citizens can only support these choices to show the power of the American nation. A person in our society cannot do much to support the country or to affect the final result of this competition between countries. However, we can express support to the American government by following its regulations and orders.
