We need an Ike, Teddy, Reagan or Truman to take on the Islamists and defeat them, once and for all. I give the current President Bush a lot of credit, he liberated two countries with his hands tied behind his back, but we must do more! If, somehow, we were able to get a conservative majority in both houses of congress and keep Senator Obama from occupying the White House, we just might have a chence.

If you take what happened in the ghastly Okinawa campaign and use the results to project what would have happened in a ground campaign through the home islands, many, many more civilians would have died than died in the two nuclear explosions. Factor in the millions of military casualties and the conclusion is inescapable: the nuclear bombs saved lives and saved the Japanese infrastructure from complete destruction.

Sorry, but after what Japan did to the world, we should have dropped more bombs even after the surrender!

Listen to a tape of FDR’s COMPLETE speech declaring war after pearl Harbor. He gives a chilling list of Japan launching attacks the same day all across the Pacific, waging surprise aggressive war against many innocent countries.

I’m glad somebody around here could bring himself to make a decision between the villified “lesser of two evils.”

Thank you, President Truman.

It was the most compassionate act that could have been done under the circumstances.
