That ended a war

that began at Pearl Harbor. That we didn't start.
I'd rather be vaporised than tap on the hull of a capsized ship for hours and hours then drown.
I say it was the humane thing to do at the time. It was gonna take more lives than that with conventional weapons.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

He told me they knew something was going down, just not what. The brass was going to invade the Japanese mainland and expected ONE MILLION casualties on our side alone. My Dad would have been in that invasion. One could say with a fair amount certainty that I owe my life to that bomb. Between both 160,000 people were killed. What no one mentions is that we killed far more civilians in Germany with conventional weapons and bombs that caused firestorms in cities like Dresden. We destroyed entire cities, including churches. When you travel through Germany today you enter a church an nine times out of ten they have pictures up showing the bombed out church before and after pictures. I was there a couple of years ago. My reaction? Tough shit.

i agree with you all

i hate the idea of nukes,however at that time they didnt understnd as much as they do now about radiation and the long lasting effects of it.we needed to demoralize the japanese and end the war.war is ugly and inocent people allways die,but they joined the war willingly and at least they knew we were at war with them when we droped the bomb!

CRY HAVOC and let slip the dogs of war!
