    What is wrong? The sites are used to bash the US. The sponsors at those cites make the claim that the bombs never needed to be dropped. That the US was racist for dropping them. They ignore the fact they started the war and then when they lost refused to surrender, that they planned mass human wave bamboo spear attacks with civilians on any invasion that took place. That the bombs actually saved millions of lives. That it was a WAR. And the bombs were dropped on MILITARY Targets.

    This President is sending our Ambassador to a site who's sole purpose is to attack the US.

    Sorry dude but sending a representative to the anniversary or whatever exactly it is who isn't even scheduled to speak is not apologizing.

    As a senior in high school, I had a Japanese exchange student , in 1997 I visited her and her family in Japan, the Japanese people are very much a shame culture and are VERY ashamed of the actions of their ancestors, they are in noway like the Muslims who blame their bad behavior on others, they don't bash the US for dropping the bomb.

    There is no getting rid of nuclear weapons. The genie is out of the bottle. Only a fool would get rid of our arsenal.
