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.?
Yeah, just imagine Osama's version of an enlightened USA.
