  1. Not to mention it saved thousands of American lives, too.

    I will never, ever, EVER take the argument that it was the wrong choice. Truman had an unenviable decision, but he made the right one.

  2. BTW, the Japanese have never apologized for Nanking, and don’t even really have much to say for their atrocities in World War II. In fact, they’re pretty unrepentant about it.

    Amazing statistic: American POWs had a better chance of survival in Nazi prisoner camps than Japanses prisoner camps.

  3. So if the japanese had dropped a couple of war ending atomic bombs on US cities you would still feel it was the best decision, right?

  4. Actually Blubb… if the japanese had dropped the Atomic Bomb on a couple of US cities, the only thing I would be thinking would be…

    “The emperor is the living embodiement of god… he is God… He is liquid sunshine… he is gold… He is infalible… oh the Emperor is perfect, and devine. Thank God and blessed be the Emperor for dropping the Atomic bomb on me and my family, for we deserved it.”

    I assume you have other brilliant insights to share with us all?

    If you wonder why US tourists prefer to identify themselves as Canadians, wonder no more.

    Arguments for the bombings being a war crime.

    … and for being completely unnecessary for Japan’s surrender.

    Throwing a weapon of mass destruction on a largely civilian town is plain insane. Sorry, USA, your history is as fucked up as that of the pretty much every other country in the world.
