They are doing a big movie about Hiroshima soon. I am looking forward to seeing it. Schools do not teach anything about it except that we bombed Japan because of the Arizona sinking.

The left goes bonkers about Hiroshima yet barely, if ever, mentions Dresden or Hamburg. Fascinating!

Then again, there’s the “loud enough, long enough” aspect of lies.

Further evidence that the Left simply cannot advance its agendas without lies.

My uncle saw the bombing of Hiroshima.

He was unable to check it out because he was doing forced labor in a Japanese mine at the time.

When stirring the emotions of the lunatic left, facts are irrelevant. I’m not being facetious; this is something I’ve heard them freely admit.

John Batchelor has been promoting this book endlessly. He’s had the author on almost nightly—first because Amazon was censoring it. Last night they discussed the non-member of one of the plane crews, who they said has been lying for sixty years.

I haven’t had the sense that it’s a peacenik book at all. The author seems to give the military command and the crews considerable credit for doing everything they could to minimize civilian casualties. They could have dropped the bombs on the same cities, and killed many more civilians than they did with a slight change in targetting.

BTW: It was mass murder. So were Tokyo, Dresden, etc., etc. It was terror-bombing, not military bombing.

You are either against murder, or you are not against murder. Circumstances are not relevant when you are discussing deliberate murder.

It is murder if you kill civilians AS A MEANS of achieving some other objective. It is not murder if you kill civilians unavoidably in the course of achieving some other legitimate objective.

The moral illiteracy that cannot make this distinction is very dangerous and deadly. The majority of our population is morally illiterate, and is unable to resist killing babies as a result.

Bill Whittle is up to his usual high standards with his essay “The truth about the atomic bombs”.

Well worth the read.

“Fake but accurate.” It’s a liberal way of life.

Looks like I have more to add to my chapter in “48 Liberal Lies” on Hiroshima.
