The problem we have is that we HAVEN’T used the bomb
again. Had we used it in Korea our resolve would not
be in question.

Hindsight is a bitch.

The Cambridge Group (UK) tipped off the Red Chinese that Truman wouldn't use the bomb in Korea.
BTW: Tibbetts was next on the runway when the prior B-29 lost altitude upon takeoff and crashed into the ocean.
The crew were all lost.

That's why Mac Arthur was fired. He had the North Korean Army on the run when the Chicoms swept in from the North. He thought that well place nucs along the Yalu River would end this war.
A cease fire was announced in 1953 and so it continues today!
