It is no contest... the bombs prevented the death of 1 million American soldiers from fanatical Japanese who had NO PROBLEM killing thousands of Chinese, Filipinos, and the Americans at Pearl Harbor.
The UN has a permanent and very prominent display regarding the “horror” of the “only time” nuclear weapons have been used by one nation against the other. It is also a major feature of their tour.
Business as usual for the ongoing, international anti-American enterprise.
Was Obama there?
p.s. to borrow a quote from the monty python team (directed at the moonbats in cali.) "i fart in your general direction."
smoke 'em if you have too!
“The work got intolerable in the mine. We were on limited rations and many of the men felt they were going to die in the mine because the work was too hard and they didn't have enough vitamins or energy. They were too run down. It was just a matter of time before we'd die working down there.”
“Many of the men began making plans to break their arms and legs. If you could break an arm or have somebody break it for you, then you could get a month or so topside where you had a chance to get by on the rations and have light duty.... I had a friend named Mason and he decided to break his leg. He got a guy to help him and they were going to use a railroad iron to break the leg. They were beating on his leg with this railroad iron and it wouldn't break. Mason was talking to me afterwards and said, “Hamilton, whatever you do, don't try to break your leg.”
Fortunately for my uncle, before he died in the mines they dropped the bomb on Hiroshima, and ended the war. He told me without the bomb, he would definitely have died, along with many others.
I have no patience with people who whine about Hiroshima. There would have been hundreds of thousands more people killed without the bomb.
Guess the moonbats don’t realize we dropped the bomb on 6 Aug.....
Been there, visited ground Zero.
Lots of nice trees and a very large thriving city now days.
In June, 2001 the Smithsonian Institute had a special exhibit about the Enola Gaye. A PhD candidate for George Washington Univ was telling us tourists about the horrible atrocity the USA commited. I stopped her to ask some questions. You see, my father went into Normandy 2 days after D-Day. After the Nazis surrendered, he spent 38 days on a ship going through Panama to Okinawa. They were amassing forces there for a humongous invasion of Japan. I asked her if she knew how many projected Japanese would die? She did not. I told her (over 1 million), then asked how many projected Alliued forces would die? She did not. I told her (approx 500,000, the bombings seemed to pale in comparison), then I asked how the USA got into the war. She knew the answer, Pearl Harbor. So I asked her who attacked whom, then followed as to why she thought it would be better for far more Japanese to die, plus Allies, when the Japanese started it all with a treacherous suprise attack - even while their ambassadors were in Washington negotiating a treaty. Then I stated, “If the bombs had not been dropped, you wouldn’t be here telling us about it - and, because my father would likely have died - I wouldn’t either.”
I live in Hollywood and I didn’t even know there’s such a protest. It must be one of those “too small a blip” in the protest calendar.
Well, since they are going to do it, we need to be the ones to remind them that it was a DEMOCRAT who dropped the bomb.
A DEMOCRAT caused the worst horror the world has ever seen.
DON’T VOTE DEMOCRAT-—THEY DROPPED THE BOMBS
DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS + DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT= TOTAL DESTRUCTION!
To hell with these disgusting fifth columnists and their terror-loving hypocrisy. I do not believe in the moral sincerity of ANY peace hypocrite. They are all totalitarian sympathizers, using their pompous moral pronouncement to undermine freedom and promote dictatorship, terrorism, and nihilism.
I suggest we declare August 6th a national holiday of thanksgiving for peace, freedom, and victory.
My wife and children would probably not be here today if we hadn’t dropped the bomb, but instead decided upon a land invasion.
My wife is a Japanese national who fully understands this, not because she’s my wife, but beacuse her 78 yr old Dad said exacty this.
These people are nothing but deniers and fascist apologists
In years past Peter Jennings would have been the leader of the pack on this topic.
These moonbats are racists pure and simple.
They have no regard for all of the people dying in slave labor camps in all of the areas conquered by the Japanese.
Chinese, Koreans, and others dying by the hundreds if not thousands every few days.
