Ah yes, the “using atomic weapons against Japan was a war crime” crowd.
How I wish each and every one with that viewpoint could experience some time at the hands of WW II Japanese soldiers. KayInMaine most likely would have been brutally raped, and then killed with a sword and dumped in a mass grave. What a buffoon.
The bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were fully justified, and no more ‘brutal’ or ‘cruel’ than hundreds of other incidents in WW II. Dropping those bombs saved countless lives on both sides. And yes, Paul Tibbetts was one of many heroes who helped end the war.
Just as bad are those who advocate nuclear disarmament today, apparently not realizing that nuclear weapons have saved millions of lives since WW II by making world war to horrible to contemplate.
Regardless, the genie can’t be put back into the bottle, and it would be horribly irresponsible to assume that no nation or group would secretly create nuclear weapons after we have disarmed. Nuclear weapons are an absolutely vital deterrent in our arsenal.
