IF it were up to me, I’d say we will never apologize for that. Never. So that we could finally stop seeing these dumb stories every years saying ‘we didn’t apologize yet’.
We’re not going to apologize. It saved more Japanes lives ending the war this way than a full scale invasion would have. Besides victors do not apologize to the defeated INSTIGATORS who attacked us first.
Two Japanese officers, Toshiaki Mukai and Tsuyoshi Noda competing to see who could kill (with a sword) one hundred people first. The bold headline reads, "'Incredible Record' (in the Contest To Cut Down 100 PeopleMukai 106 105 NodaBoth 2nd Lieutenants Go Into Extra Innings".
I've heard it stated quite a few times that Japanese troops beheaded more people with samurai swords than we killed with both atomic bombs - that gets you thinking, doesn't it?
Anyone who questions the necessity to drop these bombs should study the battle of Okinawa - it was only a tiny preview of the horrors of a battle on mainland Japan. I could go on and on...vivisections, bayonet practice, cannabalism, starvation, torture...
