No apologies, no shame

Yes, 66 years ago, the US used a bomb of unprecedented power against a tottering nation to end a war.

It worked. Yes there are many reasons why the bombs were used, not all of them pretty. But it did end the war and saved up to a million(we’ll never know how many) US and allied casualties.

Lets not use this to bash the US, and we won’t mention all the atrocities that the Japanese did before and during the fighting….Mkay? We don’t have to mention Nanking, or Bataan, or any of the others…

That was then, this is now. Few, people who were in charge then are still alive, and none of them are in charge now.

So shut up
