I believe that is is proper to feel grief over the Japanese civilians who died. I do believe the bombing was proper and ended the war poste haste. I have never regreted the event. I do regreat that the ravages of war are sometimes necessary.

Taking it to the enemy with full force is the best way to end hostilities quickly.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki saved American lives. If those events only saved only one U.S. life, the life of a citizen or a military member of the nation that was attacked in the first place, it was worth it.

Our citizens, our military members are not expendable. If someone attacks us, we're going to put them down.

Remember that folks who think the U.S. is a pushover.

From what I've read, the bombs saved Japanese civilian lives too. The Tojo and his generals were willing to sacrifice all the civilians to avoid surrender.

This muddle-headed thinking continues to permeate society.

Part of the problem is revision history that has been taught out there over the past 30 years.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki weren't necessary, neither was Vietnam nor the war in Iraq.

They don't understand war, and they don't understand how to win. They will continue to push this line of garbage until we are under tyrannical rule.

These people are insipid and need to go back to the classroom. (Or out to the woodshed!)
