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.

If we hadn't bombed Hiroshima/Nagasaki and ended the war, millions of other Japanese were going to die of starvation....we saved THEM from THAT!
