Eisenhower probably also ought to be posthumously condemned as a war criminal. After all, he invaded Europe. In fact, we should indict all the soldiers who fought in WWII.
Put this ahole in a landing craft then, about to wade ashore onto the Japanese mainland. I’d bet he’d change his mind.
Note to John Stewart, Truman was a Democrat.
FDR killed more peace loving germans and japanese than truman did!
That's a bold-faced lie. (in boldface formatting)
And that Patton dude — when he said “you shouldn’t die for your country, you should make that other b@stard die for his!”
I mean, there you have it — a war criminal.
The jon stewards of the world today would speaking German or Japanese if not for Truman, W. Churchill, Ike, Patton, et. seq.
Another reason for me to despise Jon Lebowitz!
Just another left-wing robot zombie. What these lefties will never acknowledge is that the bombs saved lives. No, not just the lives of many American GI’s who would have died in a bloody invasion of the Home Islands. No, the bombs saved JAPANESE lives, and probably MILLIONS OF THEM. If robot zombie Stewart could read, he should read Richard Frank’s “Downfall.” Frank makes it pretty clear that the continuation of the war by only a few months was likely to result in mass starvation during the winter of 1945-46 for the ENTIRE Japanese population, and that millions of them would have died. Our bombing, mining and blockade strategies had virtually wiped out all Japanese economic infrastructure. Not only did they not have enough food, they had no means of distributing it to their people. A people who had already existed for the better part of a year on starvation rations.
And no, the Japanese WERE NOT “trying to surrender” at the time the bombs were dropped. Frank published the texts of the Japanese cables to the USSR seeking mediation and it’s very clear that they intended to fight on. Considering that we were reading these cables, Truman knew perfectly well that the Japanese intended to fight on.
The bombs saved Japanese lives. Stewart is ignorant of history, or is just plain ignorant.
This is supposed to be comedy - however what passes as comedy with the libtards (Bush is a stupid chimp. hahahahahaha), and this show is also talking points from DU, Kossacks, and Huffpo. However, remember the Enola Gay exhibit at the Smithsonian? The museum practically apologized for it, calling it a racist act by the evil America bully.
Maybe this is the problem with the all-volunteer military. Sure it is effective, but asshats like Lebowitz will never be involved in defending their country and can snipe like this from the safety of a TV studio.
And what Jon Stewart says is significant why?
With this kind of idiotic logic, ANYONE who participates in ANY war, ESPECIALLY the winners, should be tried as war criminals.
Wait ‘til it comes to YOUR house, jon. (and like minded morons)
What can you say about that dope Jon Stewart.If it were Not for President Truman the U.S.Would have had to invade Japan and the cost would have been millions of casualties in U.S.Troops not to mention losses in aircraft and ships.
Secondly if that Bomb was not dropped Stewart and the rest of the U.S.would probably be speaking Japanese.
Torture? Criminal torture? Being made to watch this mtuant would be torture at its worst!! He’s physically and facially repulsive, and has a very prominent gayness to his mannerisms! F*** him!
Japan is a great nation of a free and productive people precisely because becuase Japan and its fascist government was utterly and completely defeated by the dropping of the bombs. It saved untold misery for years to come, and gave the message needed to Russia: " Do not come here!"
So know we get the wet noodle version of Nationalist Socialist history, where the sons and daughters of those who supported a newly retroactively defined evil are made to pay the wages of their ancestors.
Now that IS the Obama ideology. And historic justice IS the calling card of ALL fascist movements.
Anyone doubt now that the Obama Movement is fascist?
Look at what he has done in 100 days, classic fascist markers out of history. Including the overiding of security today for the criminal admission of GITMO terrorists into the USA.
Anyone have doubts about Obama being Fascist now?
Fred and I have been calling Obama fascist since November of 2007. We knew what he was doing in Kenya with the Islamofascist Orange party for whom Obama campaigned as a Senator.No one listened.But define Obama NOW.
I keep harping on this, because we cannot defeat an enemy that is not defined. Define Obama as a fascist, and lets fight him and obliviate his movement!
Next to Bill Maher.
More Japanese were killed in the firebombings but that’s beside the point ...Japan killed millions in Nanking then went on to Rangoon and Burma slaughtering civilians where ever they went ... we wanted to end all that. They capitulated right after Nagasaki ....
