**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.
They need to read "Faith of Our Fathers" to understand the sacrifices of the American soldier and the hideousness of the Japanese as they tortured Americans.
