Japan during war time attacked a military base and killed a couple thousand people, while we retaliate and drop not 1, but 2 atomic bombs on them to kill millions of innocent people.
90,000–166,000 killed in Hiroshima60,000–80,000 killed in Nagasaki
Is Anonymous aware of the savagery of the Japanese to the Chinese in the 1930s and elsewhere in the Pacific? Does the Bataan Death March ring any bells chez Anonymous? Does Anonymous believe that war is a tea party? Does Anonymous believe that it is more morally virtuous to be defeated by one's enemy and be slaughtered than to subdue the enemy and save one's country, culture and citizens?
I'm aware of all that you posted. Japan definitely did a lot of bad things during that time. Not condoning their behavior. However, the Japanese were about to surrender in 1945 when the US decided to drop the 2 bombs that killed all those people. Had the bombs come shortly after the attacking of Pearl Harbor, as opposed to 4 years later when they were on the cusp of surrendering after the firebombs in Tokyo and other cities, and the bombs had been in military bases as opposed to cities with innocent civilians, it wouldn't have been as bad. Drake, regarding the death toll, you think if NYC got nuked, there would be 8 million deaths because that's what the estimated population is or several million higher? Death tolls in catastrophes are always lower than the actual amount.
I wouldn't want to even think about it, thank you very much.
