My very existence is owed to Harry S Truman.

Grandpa would have been shipped to the far east to participate in the invasion of Japan.

Nuking those cities SAVED US lives.

Obama can go put a skirt on and pound sand.

Brilliant observation: mine too, as my dad was a sailor aboard the USS New Jersey, which would have without a doubt played a role in an invasion of Japan proper.

Although Truman's later bungling of the Korean War and firing of Gen. MacArthur left a black mark on his overall record, he showed immense courage in making the decisions regarding Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In that respect, HST was a statesman: an unfortunately vanishing breed in politics today.
