For the past decade, the former president's eldest grandson has engaged in a continuing public dialogue with those who survived it.

Just a reminder. Most of the piece parts for the nations nuclear stockpile are made right here in KC. Incompetent liberal lawyers tried to stop us from building a new one, but those incompetent fucktards failed. Boom!

They have two full size replicas of the A bombs in the armed forces museum in Ohio - darn near 6 ft. long. What was tough in my opinion was being the person who had to make the speech afterwards - that was MacArthur. There's a recording of that too. Did he feel like an arse when speaking of the aftermath? Probably.

One of those a bombs leveled a 5 x 5 sq. mile area.

Seldom mentioned is the statistic that the total deaths of Japanese military and civilian personnel from both bombs is less that one quarter of the number of Southeast Asian and Filipino civilians executed by the Imperial Japanese Army during its occupation of those Countries.

Also never mentioned is the fire bombing of dresgen germany that killed over two hundred thousand (thats a number i once read about)
Japan refuse to surrender after the first bomb and after the way they fought to the death through out the pacific, guess how many would have died if mainland japan had to be invaded

^^^ The Best estimate I've read is about 1 million U.S. Servicemen killed, and about the same number of Japanese military plus 3.5 million Japanese civilians killed, 3 or 4 times each of those estimates wounded.

^^He sure did!! He's in hell for it of course. He killed hundreds of thousands of people. You think God's OK with that?
