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.

I thought that it was because of Xenophobic bigotry displayed by George Bush and a number of other Republicans.

Perhaps BO made a lone stand in speaking truth to power against using the the bomb, but was ultimately overruled by John McNamara and Dick Cheney.

Or something like that. /sarc

In all seriousness, My Grandfather was overjoyed when they dropped the big one because it meant that he could head home and see my father for the first time, rather than head to Japan. Big difference in opinion between those who actually lived through the history, and those who are playing Monday Morning QB, with all the benefit of hindsight.
