in lame and ignorant whining about using nuclear weapons, get a little educated, here. Japan didn’t surrender after the first nuclear bomb. No, it took two. Think about that for a moment…
And even then there were factions who didn’t want to surrender–and who were willing to kill the Emperor in order not to.
A lot of American AND Japanese lives were saved by using these weapons!
YOU wanted Okinawa times 100? You brute! YOU wanted people to die in filth and muck? YOU wanted human misery to continue?You heartless, bloodthirsty scumbag!
We are STILL using the Purple Heart awards that were originally manufactured in anticipation of the expected casualties in the invasion of the Japanese home islands!
