I applaud use of A-bomb

SHARE I applaud use of A-bomb

History 101: Hitler's Nazi Germany surrendered, Mussolini's Italy turned on its former partners and the other Axis powers were folding. Japan and Tojo were the last remaining holdouts. What would be worse than a bloody invasion of the Japanese home islands after an already horrendous war? I applaud the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. I regret the loss of innocent life, that is tragic, but remember Pearl Harbor. Reread your history and stop degrading the sacrifices of men and women who sacrificed everything so that you can mock them from the safety of the sidelines.
