"that year's tragic dropping of the U.S. atomic bombs"?
While it certainly would have been wonderful had Japan surrendered without having dropped those atomic bombs, these hand-wringers never say how many lives would have been lost absent the bombs. Because Japan would have been burned down to the bedrock under the millions of tons of napalm that would have been dropped on their cities from U.S. & British bombers freed up from the end of the war in Europe.
Simple question: 140,000 -vs- 1,400,000 lives lost; which is more tragic?
Also, "The scientists who had worked feverishly during World War II to create the bombs soon became their biggest opponents" - bad form. How many scientists worked on the Manhattan Project -vs- how many "became their biggest opponents"?

Brought to you by the same folks who have brought to you the myth of global warming, or is it global cooling the blue house affect, or did they mean climate change

What about the "tragic rape of Nanking (nearly 300,000 dead chinese men, women and children?" Or maybe the "tragic march of the POWs in the Philipine Islands?" Or what about the "tragic deaths of thousands and thousands of POWs in Japanese mines, slave labour camps, and biological test sites?" What of the "tragic deaths of the hundreds of thousands of Manchurian citizens slaughtered by invading Japanese forces?" Oh, yeah. Remember the hundreds of Australian and British POWs who had their transport ship torpedoed and the Japanese sailors shot them in the water? Pretty tragic huh? Do they count the thousands of Korean women raped and used as sex slaves to Japanese soldiers as tragic? Japan got less than what they deserved.
