I just think threads like these give the good work we do on ATS a bad name. There is a HUGE archive of valid and credible information on ATS provided by its users. Idiotic threads like these cast a shadow upon those efforts, as it is these stupid threads that other places LIKE NEWS SITES use to characterize the contributors of ATS.

But, how do you or anyone else know the outcome if the bombings didn't occur? How do you know that is why Japan surrendered? Maybe it was because USSR declared war with Japan. A lot of what I've read indicates Japan was already pretty much defeated and was about to look for peace through USSR. Many people believe the bombings were not necessary.

I couldn't agree more. And what we really should do, is simply ignore the threads, and have no one reply and not feed into this.
