To be honest the Fire Bombings caused way more destruction and killed way more people than the two bombs did.
Approximately 16 square miles (41 km2) of the city were destroyed and some 100,000 people are estimated to have died in the resulting firestorm,
more immediate deaths than either of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The US Strategic Bombing Survey later estimated that nearly
88,000 people died in this one raid, 41,000 were injured, and over a million residents lost their homes. The Tokyo Fire Department estimated a higher
toll: 97,000 killed and 125,000 wounded. The Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department established a figure of 124,711 casualties including both killed and
wounded and 286,358 buildings and homes destroyed. Richard Rhodes, historian, put deaths at over 100,000, injuries at a million and homeless residents
at a million. These casualty and damage figures could be low; Mark Selden wrote in Japan Focus:
Even those figures are said to be perhaps downplayed.
but hiroshima and nagasaki were fire bombed, just like tokyo, dresden etc.
(what about your man who survived both naga and hiro? from the firepan into the fire, eh!).
flimsy brick survived the mega monstous blast but the many wooden houses didn't
fare so well!
the atomic bomb was a hoax. expensive hoax for the taxpayers, eh?
didn't you know this tenth? be honest now. if not, i suggest you research it as it is
surely something every moderator on every conspiracy forum on the webnet should know, eh?
