The hate America crowd does not have a leg to stand on in this argument.
The Japanese, who never came to terms with their war crimes as the Germans did, use the bombs to try to guilt the U.S. and play the victim. The fact is, they only have themselves and their brutal aggression to blame.
They were militaristic indeed, while the liberal's accusations make any from the Japanese look mild. In the liberal mind man is basically good, not fallen, and thus everything from spanking to wars can never be just.
Thus manifestations of the sinful nature of man as seen with ISIs does not compute, as they imagine that without Biblical morality and its precepts which they abhor, then man would be as they imagine. Esp. with the likes of Reagan gone.
Were you ever stationed in FRG? You are wrong about Germans coming to understand their War Crimes. You are absolutely wrong. You, could not be more wrong, ever.
My dad was preparing to ship from the European theatre to finish up the war in Japan. They knew at the time American soldiers would die en masse! Thank God for the timing of the bombs, for it enabled my father to go back home to my mother, start a family in peace, simple ordinary peace. What lucky children we baby boomers were to have parents who enjoyed a home, 2 cars, 3 kids, unlocked front doors, low taxation and regulation. No Big Brother, A sense that with hard word, families could accumulate wealth, build a savings for the future. It was idyllic for awhile.
