    Seeing as the "Everyone keeps on about America" thread seems to be closed for some reason.... I'll continue the thread here. Now if you can't stand history you (and the board) can fuck off!

    Here it is:





    This is part of history and should not be shruged off!

    Your take on the Hiroshima bomb?

    yea, peace is good and all

    But is there any point at all asking if the Hiroshima bombing was "ok" or not? Me, I think it was prematurely done just like the war in Iraq now. Hiroshima and Nagasaki was all a test of the atomic power if you ask me, and should not have been necessary.

    For christ sake, Hitler was beaten... Japan had the world against them, so why detonate the bomb?

    try it in an open, unpopulated area.
    they had no idea what the effects would be...that's just wrong.

    think about it...you get a new power washer. when you first try it out you dont try it by squirting people*...you first test it out somewhere else.


    and seeing that pic of that guy now im scared of a nuclear war. :crying:

    You need to realise that at the time Americans hated 'the Japs' with a passion..

    With that in mind you give half the world reason to nuke the other half.

    It has been generally accepted that by stopping the war in August 1945 many more lives were saved than were killed by the two atomic bombs dropped on Japan. Without it the Japanese infrastructure/mentality was such that continuation of the war for a protracted period was inevitable.

    In fact many more Japanese civilian lives were probably saved, without even considering the fighting forces on both sides. If the war had continued for months or years, you can imagine the sort of systematic bombing which would have occurred. With the comparatively flimsy nature of Japanese housing, firestorms way in excess of what happened in Dresden and Hamburg would almost certainly have ensued. There is some documentation that this occured even with small-scale bombing raids.

    BTW, the first picture is of the bomb dropped on Nagasaki, not Hiroshima.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
