    Here is another thread on that topic. They are having a pretty good fight there. The revisionists are getting their lunch handed to them by several DUers who are well armed with facts and a complete lack of mercy.

    I always felt that the use of the atomic bombs to end WWII was a tragic, but necessary move on Truman's part. It saved the thousands of American lives that would have been lost in an invasion of Japan. They didn't even surrender after the first bomb was dropped.

    The Japanese were warned to evacuate Hiroshima and Nagasaki before the bombs were dropped, and they didn't do so. We also re-built their country and helped them into the modern era.

    In a way, the US did unleash the nuclear nightmare on the world, but it was a matter of scientific eventuality that someone developed atomic and nuclear weapons at that point. Better us than them.

    64. im not arguing you point

    im just saying TPTB the upper upper elite wanted to protect capitalism and our american economic system at all costs.

    yes the bomb stopped the war faster and saved lives

    and yes us using the Nuke in war was the ultimate "fuck wit me if you want" callout to russia who remember played its own games aginst the British ensuring their control of eastern Europe.

    wars have multiple power plays going on outside of the actual battles and most of it is about who gets what booty. who controls what industries and trade routes.

    The US pharma industry and wealth was won in war.

    What the Revisionist forget really, really quick is all the things Imperial Japan did during the war.

    20 million dead in China, over half of them killed by Bio-War expirements conducted by Japan; Bio-weapons that they were planning to launch against the U.S. with ballon bombs that was estmated to kill half the American population ( about 90 million).

    And of course they also forget about the thousands of P.O.Ws that were worked, beatened, starved to death by the Japanese, plus performing medical expirements on the prisoners.

    And let us not forget the attack on the city of Nanking; twenty thousand people murdered after they surrendered to the Japanese. Men and boys were excuted , and women and girls were raped. And people like the Left-Wing revisionists looked the other way, and later denied it ever happened.

    To them America is the only evil in the world, and because of that they will support every crazed criminal, Terrorist, and Tyrant if they are slightly anti-American. No matter what the bad guys do, Revisionist like those on DU there to cheer them on.
