“It’s making the Japanese look like they’re the poor people, like they didn’t do anything,” he said. “They hit Pearl Harbor, they struck us. We didn’t slaughter the Japanese — we stopped the war.”
Included in that is the assumption, at the time, we saved over a million of our boys lives by dropping the bomb. War is not about saving the agressor, it’s about stopping the aggressor from destroying us.
In todays world, we have seemed to forget that fact. We are using our greatest resource, our kids, to further others desires.
The Japs are throwing their annual August Pity Party. It would get less coverage if they had detonated their own atomic bomb, it would make them less pitiable. Some say they did, in the last days of the war after Nagasaki just as the Russians were overrunning Manchuria.
Research the terms 'Genzai Bakudan' and/or 'Genshi Bakudan'. Watch the videos on YouTube:
Japan's Atomic Bomb Part 1
Japan's Atomic Bomb Part 2
Japan's Atomic Bomb Part 3
Japan's Atomic Bomb Part 4
Japan's Atomic Bomb Part 5
Fascinating, even if its a myth. The Japs would have deployed the Genshi Bakudan with much less debate and introspection than the Americans showed.
