Translation: "If the war continues the result will be destruction of the homeland of Japan. This is an obvious fact. The longer the war continues, the greater will be the work in reconstructing the nation after the war, and the nation's resources will be forever impoverished. It is an easy matter to sacrifice one's life for the nation. But true loylaty is to put an end to the war and to work toward reconstructing the nation."
