Just watched the PBS documentary "Hiroshima" about how horrible the U.S. is for nuking those nice Japanese in WWII.UPDATE:
Awwww those poor snowflakes!
No mention of the vivisection the Japanese practiced on American POWs and Chinese civilians just to do torture experiments on them. No mention how these "surgeries" were performed sans anesthesia and done in a way to keep the victim alive, conscious and feeling every tear, cut, laceration, gut, disembowelment, castration, eyeball extraction and amputation so that the victim would not die until every possible agony was prolonged to the maximum extent.
No mention of the humiliations and agonies unleashed on our soldiers unlucky enough to fall into Japanese custody in the pacific war.
No one mentioned how the nuclear detonation led to the end of the Japanese imperial dynasty which, had it survived, would likely resemble the repression of the regime of modern North Korea but because of its destruction, the Japanese people from the end of WWII to today into the foreseeable future essentially lived and continue to live in freedom and liberty.
Instead of hating us for the bomb, the Japanese should thank us. It saved their nation from total annihilation that a full scale invasion and American victory would have resulted in. It also saved them from the totalitarianism their own government imposed on them and would have continued imposing if God forbid they were victorious against us.
All I can say to the people of Japan is "you're welcome."
Sometimes life makes us make tough choices and given the alternatives, the Japanese got off on the cheap.
PBS sucks for telling so much less than the whole story. Shame on them for telling almost none of it. I'm sure the victims of the bomb had a time that really sucked but the fault lies entirely on the side of the Japanese government. Not America for doing all it could do to defeat what was up to that time, one of the two most barbaric regimes in human history.
This was a comment on Ari David's Facebook post:
Most people have never heard of the Japanese unit 731, and their horrendous undertakings ....
In December of 1937, the Japanese Imperial Army marched into China's capital city of Nanking and proceeded to murder 300,000 out of 600,000 civilians and soldiers in the city. The six weeks of carnage would become known as the Rape of Nanking and represented the single worst atrocity during the World War II era in either the European or Pacific theaters of war.
