Paleo conservatives and their "smoking gun/mushroom cloud/ticking time bomb" arguments amuse me.

At least there aren't memos coming out about how to politicize national security interests...right Mr. Rockefeller?

You all want the walls back up between departments...Pelosi and the gang are here to show you how.

According to Stewart, Harry S. Truman is guilty of war crimes. We should have set the first A Bomb 15 miles off the coast to warn them before actually dropping one on them and killing 100,000 people.

Nevermind that Japan only surrendered after the second bomb.

Japan's surrender had very little to do with annihilating two of their last three cities with bombs they didn't understand and much more to do with the red army having just wiped out their remaining troops in manchuria and coming in to throw a rape party

nuking japan had very little to do with insuring victory (as evidenced by our near eradication of the rest of the country using traditional methods) and much more to do with showing the Russians what we could do.

You could argue Hiroshima was somewhat for the Japanese, but Nagasaki was totally for the Russians (and Chinese).

Come on, man. Not you too?

Pearl Harbor was like 9/11. Only the whole country wanted revenge, not just half of us.

even the joint Naval-Army investigation into the events immediately after came to the conclusion that the bombs had little impact beyond losing two non military cities.

i mean it's not like anyone knew what they were. if the intention was just intimidation and breaking their will, detonating it in clear view of the most densely populated civilian region in front of people that would survive to talk about it makes a lot more sense.

of course truman was a lunatic and lamay was a war criminal (as admitted by robert macnamara) so what do you expect.
