I have yet to read one post other than my own that thinks killing of any kind unless in self-defense is completely ridiculous and never acceptable. All wars are stupid. What they did to Japan was no less deplorable than what Japan did to Pearl Harbor, it was all senseless BS. Every day someone somewhere kills someone with a gun, a car, a bomb, etc. Many innocent people die every day and it's disgusting no matter how or who, defending ones country from an invader is one thing, but to create a war under false pretenses is an entirely different matter. I would venture to say all wars have been created out of false pretenses and therefore not acceptable period. They have happened because of one thing GREED! Try living together in peace and prepare your self spiritually for the coming changes, do not create more problems. Do not live your life in fear, let Love guide you.

You'll get no argument from me that man is not morally mature. Nuclear weapons are stupid. We learned that because of Japan. We are technologically ahead of ourselves, which is not a very stable place to be.
In all likelihood we'll destroy ourselves before we gain the necessary wisdom to stop this madness.
They had kick arse submarines which could launch planes which were equipped with biological weapons. They were going to his the US with them, but didn't in the end. They instead destroyed their submarines, so the US would not find out.

Too bad that the dropping of the bombs is what led to the Cold War
In my opinion, the dropping of the bombs should be considered as a war crime. But, when was the last time the USA got done on War Crimes
What is interesting though, is that Japan could have had the last laugh. They had their "super weapon" deployed at the time of the bomb dropping. They had kick arse submarines which could launch planes which were equipped with biological weapons. They were going to his the US with them, but didn't in the end.

It was us or them and I'm glad it was them. They had numerous chances to surrender and they didn't. They brought it upon themselves with their stubborn attitude.
They shouldn't have bombed Pearl Harbor. Perhaps we wouldn't have been so ruthless if they had thought twice about attacking us in such a fashion.
Older Americans have NOT FORGOTTEN.
