The deterrent value since then has saved untold lives more.
Agree! What kind of crimes would these same utter fools be accusing Truman of if he had left the atomic bombs on the shelf and invaded Japan after months of preparatory bombing on cutoff of all supplies? Millions of women and children would have died needlessly.
The war needed to be over, and over in a way that it would not be repeated, as the war in Europe was ended in 1918, only to rekindle in 1939. And the proof is in the pudding. Japan has not had a war in 65 years.
There is no pleasing these fools until they surrender themselves and all their listeners to a violent death at the hands of the thugs of the world. Ignore them. Or, in time of war, lock them away.
