The atomic bombs combined did not kill as many people as the conventional bombing of Tokyo did.
You idiots that think the U.S. was so terrible just love to forget that Japan had attacked the United States (and Great Britain, Holland, France
etc,), and that they murdered hundreds of thousands of prisoners (both civilians and military prisoners).
In every country they "liberated" they raped thousands of native women, murdered men and boys and enslaved the local population. They took Korean
women and forced them into their military brothels.
They used prisoners of war as subjects in their biological warfare and their poison gas experiments in Manchuria.
If the atomic bombs had not been utilized, the Japanese planned to kill hundreds of thousands of troops invading Japan. How many Japanese citizens
would have died, along with the hundreds of thousands of allied troops? Nobody knows, but it would have been a LOT more than died in the two atomic
The Japanese started the war, but they want to whimper about how it ended. Frankly, the Americans should have dropped an atomic bomb on Tokyo, and
eliminated about 2 million of them. Tokyo is a flat plain, and the bomb would have been a LOT more effective there.
