What the likes of Stewart don’t understand is that the US killed far more Japanese in the firebombing campaign that immediately preceded the nuke attacks than in the latter. Furthermore, he does not seem to comprehend that he very likely would not be on Earth to criticize leaders like Truman had he decided to invade the main islands (we did invade Imperial Japanese territory, but Iwo Jima and Okinawa as bad as they were would pale next to the main island) as his father, my father, and many more fathers of Boomers would have been killed there. It would have been history-changing, indeed. Stewart would be well-advised to read some history before spouting off.

>>to read some history

We’re Americans, we don’t “do” history.

Just feelings.

That doesn't matter. That the US was the first (and thus far only) nation to use nukes in war, to the Left, places us in an especially odious category.
