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.
One of my daughter-in-laws is a Japanese national also, and her dad (a history teacher in Japan) has said the same thing. He lost his parents in one of the bomb drops, but says he has no hard feeling against the U.S. for it. He completely understands.
