Geee, if only they would not have been the ravaging barbarians they were, then perhaps they would not have reaped what they sowed.......The insane strategy of the time was to keep killing civilians until the maniacs surrendered. FDR even had a mockup of a German city erected as a target to see which incendiary devices would be the most effective in urban civilian environments. The propaganda of the time managed to convince Americans that the Japanese were sub-human and the Bomb was just an extension of the insanity. Japan would probably have dropped it on the U.S. if they had the chance and so would the Nazis. but the winning side gets to write the history books and justify the atrocities.
So you're saying the atomic bomb was used for revenge rather than military necessity? Those hundreds of thousands of civilians were annihilated as an act of revenge?
