Fucking jarhead dumbshit.
Many historians also argue that ending the war would have involved an invasion of the Japanese homeland, which they say might have cost upwards of a million lives. Since only a couple hundred thousand people, who were our enemies, died in that situation, I'd say it was justified. In war, if you're the enemy, that makes your life inherently less valuable than mine. It sucks, but then, so does war.

It's important to realize, however, that a nuclear weapon in 1945 is a lot different from a nuclear weapon today. In 1945, a nuclear weapon was awesome, no question, but today's nuclear weapons can deliver many times the damage. In modern times, the only thing I can think of that might justify the use of a nuclear weapon is a war with China in which they used one on us first.

OK, but couldn't it be argued that the bomb dropped on a bunch of civilians, and the Peral Harbor attack was on our army, so maybe killing civilians who are just trying to live is worse?

just outta curiosity...do you think the nuking of a carrier battle group would warrant the retaliation nuking of a city? or do you think the retaliation nuking of a city would only be warranted by an enemy nuking one of your cities first? just curious if you believe in counter-force nuking or counter-value nuking

The Flight of the Hog Wild

Actually, David Snell described the "ball of fire" to be approximately 915 meters ("1,000 yards") in diameter. He didn't say the "mushroom cloud" was 100 meters in diameter. If you are going to quote a journalist to prove he was mistaken, please quote him accurately. I'm currently writing a book on Japan's nuclear weapons program which includes David Snell's biography. The book's title is The Flight of the Hog Wild.
