I do have to say that when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor it was a Military hard target.
They did random aerial bombing with balloons against the U.S.
I believe that the attacks were largely infective.
We did not nuke the military bases.
We vaporized the civilian cities.
That is pretty freaking hardcore.
Then again is was a war in Europe of mass carpet bombing that we were used to fighting between all sides using random artillery strikes against cities
and aerial bombardment against cities.
It was a type of military combat we were used to fighting with Germany
and it's allies in Europe for some time.
It did not take very much for us to apply that same strategy to Japan.
Judging from the attacks that the Japanese used on the Chinese during that same era we can lend no leniency towards Japan being civilized in war and
only attacking military targets. They raped the living crap out of the Chinese. They slaughtered them man woman and child.
Japan was not innocent. They were pretty savage.
The ruling this judge hands down is the Nukes were acceptable.
