So I recently came upon an old forum titled "Can you believe Obama apologized for Hiroshima?"
Thankfully, this BS was locked... but still.
I'm actually amazed that there are people crazy enough on this site to think that the use of nuclear weapons on a civilian population was justified.
The recurring argument seems to be "it was self-defence after Pearl Harbour"
During Pearl Harbour, 2,403 people were killed, 68 of which were civilians. This is a tragedy, yes but was it really f***ing necessary to retaliate by killing 140,000 in Hiroshima and 70,000 in Nagasaki?
Is being proud of mass murder what it means to be American? Really? Because people are arguing that it is "unamerican" to apologise for these atrocities.
There is a lot of BS on CV, but it's largely just arguing over characters, mostly harmless stuff. But this kind of s**t... it scares me.
