The use of the bomb's at Hiroshima and Nagasaki though Horrible and arguably an attack on civilian's did shorten the war, it did save more lives than
a protracted war would have cost so is it really relevant to bring that point up, if America had not somebody else would have before the horror made
them take pause before ever using it again and is that not the point, all side's have them and all side's know the harm they did and will do.
I see america and the men whom carried those missions out as exonerated for that action simply because it was at the time the correct tactical
decision and they actually saved lives not just then but after the war when conflict though precariously close and often faught through proxy wars
became unthinkable and had public opinion turned against it.
Because of those actions we fear the bomb and the policians take note.
But then we are a people controlled by propeganda and of course it only takes one side to push the other too far, still I think the next nuclear
exchange will happen in the middle east or from the middle east.
