Today’s Date in History
Hurley the Historian says on today’s date in 1945, the US dropped its first atomic bomb called “Little Boy” on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. On August 9, the US dropped its second atomic bomb called “Fat Man” on the Japanese city of Nagasaki. Less than a week later on August 15, the allied nations celebrated VJ Day, and on September 2, Japan signed an unconditional surrender.
Does dropping atomic bombs on innocent civilians work? It would certainly seem so. Unfortunately, on October 24, 1945 the United Nations was born, and wars have been no fun ever since.
Will Kneepad Liberals in the Press be comparing killing Japanese civilians to end WWII with Israel’s right to defend itself from Terrorists these days? We hardly think so.
Remember when Obama led from behind in Libya and our Fund-raiser-in-Chief told congressional leaders that the “kinetic activity” (fighting & killing) we were getting into would only be a matter of “days, not weeks?” How’d that thing in Libya turn out, anyhow? The Moslem Brotherhood got the Gold Medal on that one.
But we digress. Let’s get back to today’s history lesson. At yesterday’s meeting of the Conservative Agenda, Political Insiders were saying most people remember the horror of what Hiroshima looked like after the US dropped the big one.
Few people realize what that obliterated Oriental city looked like 70 years later.
Or maybe we should compare Hiroshima and Detroit.
