HIROSHIMA, Japan (AP) - With an unflinching look back at a painful history, President Barack Obama stood on the hallowed ground of Hiroshima on Friday and declared it a fitting place to summon people everywhere to embrace the vision of a world without nuclear weapons.
As the first American president to visit the city where the U.S. dropped the first atomic bomb, Obama came to acknowledge - but not apologize for - an act many Americans see as a justified end to a brutal war that Japan started with a sneak attack at Pearl Harbor.
Some 140,000 people died after a U.S. warplane targeted wartime Hiroshima on Aug. 6, 1945, and 70,000 more perished in Nagasaki, where a second bomb was dropped three days later. Japan soon surrendered....

Hussein needs to go take Iran and Pokeestan’s nukes.....
Come on Dude, we’ve only got about 8 months to surrender to everybody.
Obola's version of Manifest Destiny is for nobody except Iran to have nukes.
I guess only the 57 Islamic states should have nukes.
Let's start with Pakistan first. And then Iran (shortly).
Never going to happen, obviously. ....unless one day nukes become obsolete due to more effective and efficient weaponry.
Douche, meet bag.
Making war less horrible makes it more likely.
If you want peace, prepare for war.
Statements made by people far more experienced and far wiser than me.
Little Barry should STFU before he starts a war.
Because firebombing every major city in japan and destroying almost all of their infrastructure while dragging thew war on for another few years as millions of innocent civilians ( who had no say about who was running their country since they had a Emperor at the time) starved to death in Japan would have been so much merciful than ending the war quickly so MacArthur could start rebuilding and turning them into a needed ally in pacific to counter the red threat from china.....
Obama is so damned smart and has such an “excellent”... grasp on history....
Bingo!!! Obama cannot be the reveal himself as the Mahdi if he does not strengthen the Islamic Nations for World Wide Takeover... Meanwhile the Pope and Megachurch pastors say Christians and Muslims worship the same God
Let us say that the entire world, including the US, gives up nuclear weapons, what would the results be? Would the US remain the “sine qua non” (without equal) in terms of military power?
Not as the US Military is currently setup. As the truism goes, ‘Quantity has a quality all its own’ and a small military can only work (sporadically) when backed by the Nuclear hammer! Lacking that, we either resign to being merely one among many or spend a LOT MORE and TAX MORE!
Reagan used to say the same thing. It’s just diplomatic baby talk. I hope.
President Reagan wanted to defend against them with the Strategic Defense Initiative. I doubt that Mr. Obama feels the same way.
No. Many times he wished for a world without nukes. I remember too well. Did he really mean it?
I imagine they all say it.
The Los Angeles Times article has many negative comments about this traitor.
Like why he has not laid a wreath in Pearl Harbor etc.
Sure he isn’t a Muslim. That’s why he is trying to disarm the west while arming Muslims with nukes.
