    Not sure how true it is that Eisenhower was against using the bomb, but it seems to be accepted as historical fact. Iirc, there were other high ranking officers that also saw it as unnecessary.

    I wouldn't say anyone ever deserves it. Strategically unavoidable maybe? I'm not going to pretend to understand the stratagies, but based on what we know now and that even the allied commander was against it I'm going to say it was not needed.

    The worst thing in the world is when you go to the doctor for help and they start talking about Jesus.

    Also, yeah it might not have been necessary but it sure got the point across. Next time fucking surrender when we (or anyone else) say it is in your best interest. To take those islands would have been hell so we let them take the losses instead. Not sorry.

    @Walpkunt The bombing of Japan was revenge for Pearl Harbour. The bombing of Dresden was revenge for the May blitz in Britain. Sino Russia wars ! Japan attack Manchuria, The Russians fighting the battle of Stalingrad where 20 million died. Are you a history major your brief synopsis was comedy kidda. No offense. Japan before WW2 was a feudal system medieval in nature like something out of Total war but history has buried the fact Japan was on the verge of revolution ! Einstein urged the West to get the bomb sorted as soon as. I think BIG BOY was a great name for a bomb.
