I never did get to post my comments on the first Atomic Bomb drop on the 75th anniversary, and I suspect that the subject would be too hot (pun intended) for the Pit.

While some of the Ivory Tower Designers had no compunctions whatsoever with using it on the Germans, they did have considerable reluctance to use it on the Japanese. i suspect that they had no idea whatsoever about the bestiality of the Japanese in China and elsewhere. Go download Volume 4 of the Australian Army history of World War 2, and read the chapters on the Japanese treatment of prisoners, or the massacres of surrendered soldiers on New Britain following the loss of Rabaul, which the Aussies knew about within a few weeks. Track down a copy of the book Knights of Bushido about the Tokyo War Crime Trials (didn't know about them, did you?) for more sickening details. Maybe read up on Unit 731, the biological warfare people, and their field testing in China. The Japanese were giving lessons to the Germans when it came to bio weapons, as we discovered in going through German documents following the German collapse. Or maybe the rules for the governance of captured areas, when it comes to religion, the Chinese, or how the big Japanese commercial firms were going to get all of the contracts for resource exploration. Then there is the Rape of Nanking. You really do not want to see some of the photos in the U.S. National Archives that we got from the Chinese, who the Japanese had develop the films.

I not only have no problems with the bomb drop, I would have thrown the surrender terms out the window, and put Hirohito on trial for war crimes, and then hung him, along with abolishing the Japanese Imperial Family, and maybe hang a few more of them.
