Has it been 61 years already? Yes it has. Two weapons of unbeleivable destructive power, of that time, were dropped on the sole remaining Axis power - Japan. Within days in a scratchy voice few Japanese had ever heard, Emperor Hirohito advised them to be ready to endure unendurable times and then World War II was over.
Many of the 'peace' movements in the West would like to tell you how evil that decision was. How inhumane it was to drop two low yeild nukes on Japan.
What they omit is the casualty count from the planned invasion of Japan. How does 500,000 Allied casualties grab you? Or the millions of Japanese deaths, both military and civilian that would occur as a result of the invasion. Some of the Japanese civlian deaths would be suicides as whole familes kill themselves least the blood-thirsty Americans capture them, their government and media had told them such and ones on Saipan had done this already at a place called Banzai Cliff.
I think a body count in the millions is far more inhumane than what happened in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
