    Well, I, for one, will always be unrepentant. The war was one the Japanese brought on themselves, and needed to be ended. Their actions were unconscionable. I guess I am selfish as well, since my dad was in a unit that would have hit the beach at Kyushu. Since I was born in 1952, I wasn’t even a gleam in his eye at the time, and probably wouldn’t be here today if the bomb hadn’t been dropped.

    Roger that Desertmole,

    I had a friend in the USMC who paid a visit to the Hiroshima memorial site way back in the mid-1960′s.

    As he stood looking at the memorial a Japanese man asked him (in excellent english) if he wasn’t sorry the bomb caused so many deaths and serious injuries.

    His reply was: “Ask me that same question at Pearl Harbor”

    The emperor’s military brought that end to the Japanese people.

    ‘Nuff said.

    My father-in-law was a Marine Infantryman slotted for the invasion of Japan. An invasion that would have cost millions of Japanese and hundreds of thousands of American lives. No remorse here.

    And, if the war had been prolonged a couple of months, the Russians would have landed. We might still be talking about communist North Japan and free South Japan.

    With the bomb, MacAuthur told the Russians to piss-off when they demanded permission to occupy part of Japan. Since they didn’t have their own bomb – the Russians did in fact piss-off.

    I agree. In a way, those two bombs saved millions of lives, American and Japanese, who would have died in an invasion. Not only that………..there are numerous documented instances of conventional bombings during WW II that causes as many or greater casualties in a single raid. Yea, there wasn’t any lingering effects from the conventional raids, killing slowly over the years………but as you guys noted; if you don’t want to play war, you shouldn’t start it.
