Hehehe, bit late for the 4.1 pull eh ?

This topic has been covered many times over the years, but Dawgs, I disagree with you on one thing. The bomb needed to be dropped to get the sucker Hirohito and the Imperial Japanese military machine to it's knees quickly, yes I may be able to understand that part, but dropping them intentionally on known heavily civilian targets was not a choice that would ever be appreciated, especially by the receiving end. But I guess this topic belongs to be talked about when August comes around.

Takehito,
I would only drop some Jack Daniels on you. And one pair of bibs so when you got drunk you could try a pair on. LOL
Dropping a case or two of JD over me works for me anytime ! the bib part I don't know.... I wouldn't want to get a fancy on 'em and start collecting vintage bibs or anything like that.

Read about the Japanese I-400 submarine(s) and what their mission was if you have any doubts about us dropping the bomb.
Yea right, excellent reason to vaporize a quarter million mostly civlian population in two shots, hardly any strategic military targets in the bomb zone. Your precious A-bomb should have been dropped over the imperial palace if you really wanted to just impress the Japanese military to surrender.

Edokko, I'm just glad the bombs caused the war to end soon enough for your Dad to be spared what would have been a sad fate and that as a result you are with us today :)
Dawgs, you certainly have a point there ! My dad would have certainly not survived being a new officer in the field if he had graduated the officer's school, an I would'nt have been around tossing empty beer cans and bottles with you.

or is basing that conclusion on emotion.
Mike, you certainly have that right. My comments or criticism on the A-bomb being dropped specifically on civlian dense and fairly intact cities are indeed derived from pure emotion. Not only the A-bomb, but I have heard of the Tokyo firebombing horrors of agonizing death and the great grief in finding your family, friends or loved ones burnt to a black crisp directly from my grandparents and my parents, and that does indeed evoke "emotion".
