I find it very troubling that we have in our midst here, those who hate America. Further troubling is the many who hate this country so much live and work here. It's disgusting.
I'm so sick of American apologists and bleeding heart liberals who think we should sit on our aZZes and do nothing bc if we possibly kill one innocent person we're tyrannical. Sure, we're not perfect. No country is. But the US has helped many nations, given aid to many an ailing country, even fought two world wars it did not need or want.
There are those who say the US was wrong in using the A bomb in WWII. However, what they almost always fail to note is that Germany was working on the self same bomb and would have used it just as we did. What these people also seem not to understand is that a positive outcome of WWII for the Allies was not an assured prospect. In fact, it was far from it. The Axis Powers were formidable foes. To say we relished using the A bomb to put quick end to the war is absurd. Noone likes killing so many people.
Gawd, I just love reading these self-serving posts from this amusing collection of self-proclaimed Gen X historians. To you I say talk to a WWII veteran if you want a real account. Go back, LIVE IT AND FIGHT IT, and then come back and spew your bullshit. At least then you'll be entitled to it. Until then STFU.
