Another Thing I'm Sick of...

Ok, I've about had it with the bleeding hearts whining about Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Let's get one thing absolutely clear. Japan picked the fight. We didn't go out and pick the fight with them, they bombed Pearl Harbor. That was pretty much an invitation that amounted to a "bring it on".

Let's put the shoe on the other foot. If the Japanese had beat us to the punch and invented the bomb before we did, do you think that Tojo and the Japanese military would have hesitated for one second to use it? Mushroom clouds would have sprouted from every American city they could reach.

I do feel bad for the people who were killed, but in fact, Japan was preparing for the invasion of the mainland. At that point they were teaching children to attack GI's with sharpened bamboo spears and hence they were combattants. Further, bombing those cities saved countless lives both American and Japanese. The mortality rates during an invasion of the Japanese mainland would have been staggering. One needs only protract the battle for Okinawa to see just how costly an invasion on the Japanese homeland would have been.

In closing, if you pick a fight, you'd better be willing to get your ass kicked as that is always a possibility. If you do wind up getting you ass kicked, don't whine about it. For those on our own shores who have a penchant for second guessing history and blaming America for all of the world's ills... Fuck off you traitorous scum. You should be tried for treason and hung.
