This is maddening. "To the citizens of the United States of America: We understand your anger and anxiety over the memories of the horror of the 9-11 terrorist attacks,"
Comparing Fat Man and Little Boy to the terrorist attacks on 9/11 is intellectual sophistry.
Uh, didn't Japan attack us first?!?! Good grief.

The weird thing is, you always hear all about Hiroshima, but you almost never hear anything about Nagasaki.

Another stupid thing about comparing Hiroshima/Nagasaki to 9/11 is what happened afterward. When the Japanese surrendered, we went over there and helped them build one of the most prosperous Democratic nations in history.
What happened after 9/11? Did bin Laden come over here and help rebuild the World Trade Center? Did he come to help with reconstruction, and try to build a better, more enlightened nation out of the U.S.?

Nagasaki Mayor Iccho Itoh had some angry words for the leaders of the nuclear powers, and especially the United States.
Let's never forget that those bombs ended a war that Japan started by killing Americans, and if Japan had had the bomb they would never have hesitated to use it against the US.
That being said the two bombs themselves are reported to have killed less people than the Japanese military killed in their rape of China which is conveniently forgotten.
Above all else some Americans are alive today because there was no invasion of the Japanese homeland.

**killing some 80,000 people ***
Has everyone forgotten that after two A-bombs we went back to conventional bombing raids and killed thousands before the surrender?
What gets their panties in a bunch is we used ONE A-bomb on each city. Had we mounted a 100 plane raid on Hiro and Naga and killed as many as we did nothing would be said about it today.

Better a couple of nukes than even a few days of incendiary raids.

Happy N-day everybody. This affected the surrender of people who:
- conducted surgical experiments against Americans with no Anesthetic.
-Who bayonetted Americans who couldn't keep up the pace of the 60 mile march before stopping.
Fanatical suiciders, like the Islam crazies of today.
Everyone think about that before weeping for the Nagasaki "victims".

Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it. And I'm sure they don't want to do that.
But if the situation were to present itself again, we would nuke them again. No question.
