Daniel is using the same points I have used in the past, I agree with them still…
The Atomic Bomb Was a Moral Weapon That Saved Millions
Ironically, pacifism begins with accepting the narrative of the genocidal war criminals who ran Japan during WW2.
Pope Francis traveled to Hiroshima and Nagasaki on Sunday to demand that world powers renounce their nuclear arsenals, declaring the use and possession of atomic bombs an “immoral” crime and a dangerous waste.
As opposed to what? Plain old bombs? Napalm? Firebombing cities? Bullets?
When Americans firebombed Japanese cities was that okay? It’s just nukes that are spooky and scary?
Japan had its own nuclear program. (Two technically.) As did the Nazis. When the Communists succeeded in getting their own hands on nukes, the result nearly wrecked the planet.
