I always wondered why, if God really wanted to reach everyone he could, why Jesus would be born in a backwater town in a tiny insignificant country. Now I realize if Jesus had been born today the internet would be flooded with idiots taking selfies at Calvary.

Yeah, you gotta watch out for all of the super mutants around vault 87. Plus, the radiation is killer.

/ in all seriousness; I've seen the pictures of the aftermath. I definitely don't need to go visit in person. I just can't imagine the feelings of guilt and recrimination that the guys of Enola Gay and Boxcar had to be carrying around for the rest of their lives.

I hate to say it, but that was pretty much the ideal thing.  Nukes were going to be used in war at some point.  I'm glad it happened when they were so small (the death toll was not large compared to the firebombing runs).  It got it out of the way and they haven't been used since.  Sure, it sucks to be Japan, but maybe you should have considered that before being fanatically devoted to your emperor.  I'd much rather that, then a much larger bomb used against Pyongyang, Beijing, Moscow, etc...

Oh, haha, I get it.  Enola Gay. And Skeletor has a limp wrist in that jpeg, so that must mean he's a mincy little fairy.  Hilarious.  Almost as funny as the pictures of firebombed Japanese infants.

I did some work for a guy in Greenwich CT who owned the bomb sight from the Enola Gay, I actually got to look through it. I'm wondering if he had that photo along with all the other war memorabilia he had.

Just watched an interview with a couple of them.  One had introspection and maybe some guilt, but the other (I think the captain?) was pretty much, "Naw, I don't feel guilt, I was just doing my job.  I probably saved lives."

I'm not judging either way.

Please. They were fighting a war. And  the death toll from both bombs was well below your average firebombing of Tokyo or Dresden. But, no, because they dropped nukes they must be suffering extra super guilt.

War crimes are decided by the victors.  If we had lost, Spaatz, LeMay and Arnold likely would have been hung for crimes against humanity.

Why? They were likely more responsible for those events than you ever were. If those bombs weren't dropped, the Invasion of Japan would have happened and neither of you would have existed today.

Well, let's see:

In his interview with Terkel, Gen. Tibbets said that he met with President Harry S. Truman in 1948 in the Oval Office and that the president asked the airman if he had regrets. As he would for the rest of his life, Gen. Tibbets replied that he had none and had done his duty to protect the country.He told Terkel that he would not hesitate to use nuclear weapons against America's current enemies."I'd wipe 'em out," he said. "You're gonna kill innocent people at the same time, but we've never fought a damn war anywhere in the world where they didn't kill innocent people. If the newspapers would just cut out the [expletive]: 'You've killed so many civilians.' That's their tough luck for being there."

250,000 people died, many if not most of them completely unrelated to the war. Schoolchildren, doctors, teachers,farmers... Any way you cut it, it was a staggering amount of death and horror. I didn't quite understand it either until I stood there, in front of a hillock made of the remnants of ten thousand people.

Yeah, I've heard Filipinos say the same thing, especially the older ones when I was there in the 70s.  The Thais aren't particularly fond of them, either.

But if you really want to hear someone hating on the Japanese Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere, try talking to any Korean who was around at the time.

Truman: "It is an atomic bomb. It is a harnessing of the basic power of the universe. The force from which the sun draws its power has been loosed against those who brought war to the Far East."

I don't care how disciplined you may be as a Japanese with all of it's Samurai code and Emperor-worship. Hearing that the gaijin have harnessed the Power Cosmic and are going to rain it's fury down on top your heads will make you think that Galactus has joined the Allies.

You can't personally identify anyone in the Hiroshima photo.  If you can't see the pain and anguish in a photo of someone dying it's generally acceptable socially.

It's called compassion, Vinnie. Most of the folks killed were civilians who had no say in the war. Remember?; they had an emperor. No votes for that shiat.
