60 years ago today- The Hiroshima bombing
There were ceremonies today in Japan to observe the event.
I am not a historical revisionist. To me the bombings at Nagasaki and Hiroshima were necessary and justified. What revisionists fail to remember is how tenaciously the Japanese fought throughout the Pacific. More often than not to the death. To try conquering the Japanese mainland by amphibious invasions would certainly have been ten times deadlier than these two bombings.
That said I hope there is never another day where these weapons are used again by any one.
