Happy Hiroshima Day!!!

Sixty-three years ago today, August 6, 1945, the B-29, Enola Gay and her crew dropped the first Atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan. This was followed 3 days later by the 2nd bomb on Nagasaki, Japan. With these two WMD's the 2nd World War came to an end.

It was a shame it had to happen, but it was also a shame the Japanese didn't take the offer to surrender when they could have. It was a shame they saw the offer to save face by keeping that great, UN-punished war criminal, Emperor Hirohito on the throne, as a sign of weakness.

If they hadn't. IF they had taken the last offer before the bombs were dropped, tens of thousands of lives could have been saved. As it was, it's estimated that millions were saved by the use of the atomic bombs.

So, unlike so many namby-pamby liberal weenies, I DO NOT apologize for the actions at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The events that happened there, were broght about by the Japanese themselves. IF they hadn't bombed Pearl Harbor and brought us into this war, it would not have happened.

IF they had accepted the last offer of surrender, it would not have happened. But they DID make the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, and they DID NOT accept the last offer to surrender that was given them, prior to the bombs being dropped. Too bad, so sad, I'm glad, because my dad didn't have to go to the Pacific, which he would have, if the bombs hadn't been dropped, but the war had continued. And if that had happened, I might not be here.
