You don't even have to go as far as the invasion to prove your point about Japanese lives saved from dropping the A bombs. B-29 fire bombing raids were killing more than both bombs put together. Had we not dropped them, these raids would have needed to be continued burning most cities Japan to ashes.

Thank you for your scholarship on the subject. I wonder why that PhD candidate from George Washington Univ, who was the presentor at the Enola Gaye exhibit at the Smithsonian, was not aware of the knowledge you and I have on the subject. Almost seems like a pre-determined agenda.
Anyway, my questions embarrassed her in front of a very largw crowd. What haunts me is that our tax dollars were paying for her to keep spewing her distortions. That was one showing of several that day, everyday.
