No Apology for Hiroshima

Those millions of lives we saved by ending the war quickly – with two atom bombs rather than by a grueling invasion that Japan was already preparing to defend against to the death – include Japanese civilians as well as US servicemen. Harry S Truman didn’t just reduce our casualties with those bombs, he also reduced theirs. A lot of people in Japan today are only alive because their parents weren’t killed in the invasion that liberals still think would have been preferable. So don’t say “I’m sorry.” Say “You’re welcome.”

    Lefties hate disproportionate war. All of their heroes are on the wrong side of it. One fellow who I had a conversation about ‘proportionate response’ during the 2000 Intafada couldn’t tell me who would win in such a situation, only saying that in War, noone wins. Happy happy,joy joy. I guess that made him feel safer at night.

    Oh, and on top of your Journolist posting, there’s another group who can’t seem to find a minority anywhere….

      Despite that criticism and demands that the United States apologize to the Japanese, a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 59% of American Adults believe the decision to drop the nuclear bombs on the two cities was a good one. Just 16% say the A-bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was a bad decision. One-in-four Americans (25%) are not sure. Twenty percent (20%) think the United States should apologize to Japan for the bombings which came after the Japanese government rejected a U.S. ultimatum to surrender. Fifty-nine percent (59%) say no apology is necessary. Twenty-two percent (22%) are undecided.

    There’s someone who hasn’t cracked a history book in their lives.
