Me from the UK again..........
Again my heartfelt sympathies go out to anyone affected by this incredulous act of barbarism and stupidity.
A) It took the Abomb for them to stop. Experimentation was therefore justified.
B) Like it or lump it, Japanese culture is 'strange' to us westerners. Mainly cruel, brutal and dare I say it fanatical (still is, really).
C) The losses.... look at the losses elsewhere within that war theatre (world war II) then tell me a million people was a lot.
Elsewhere in this forum it has been suggested that the yanks 'saved' Europe in WWII... hmmmmm I really suggest that you read a little more history. No one can know what the outcome would have been.... however if the Germans would have gotten hold of Europe, I suggest the possibility that it would not have been only us Europeans under the thousand years of the reich.......
Elsewhere on this forum, it has been stated that 'I am sick of America being cast as the bad guy' (or some such) Join the club, apparently Britain is directly to blame for all the worlds ills (most of the time).
I have a resolution to all of this......... but...
A) it wont be easy to implement.
B) all you do good idiots won't agree.
An idea from the UK.
I pay loads of taxes, some countries pay more, some less.
Quite a proportion of those taxes get spent on criminals, prison service and justice system. We now have the technology of a tagging system for all people. So that a computer/satellite system knows everyones whereabouts in the UK (could easily be worldwide) Ofcourse the computer system would have to be secure and literally untamperable (as would the 6 smartchips placed strategically in the body at birth). In the case of crimes this would provide location information. So individuals can be traced to be within a certain place/building at a certain time etc etc etc. NOW..... the only people that would be against this (IMHO) would be criminals (or perhaps do gooders) surely......... I am completely for it. I am a relatively law abiding person therefore I have nothing to fear from this system. To add to the 'truth' of the system 100 people each year should be randomly picked as the 'keepers' of the system, acting as the 'moral' conscience if you will, paid hansomely for the inconvenience (and anti-bribery).
Tell me what crimes could/would be done if this system was in place. Trust usually necessitates face to face contact (esp in criminal circles) not just voice (over the phone) communications.
Anyway.......... I have rambled...... and here in the UK it's time for bed..........
