I’m very critical of the American military. Seems to me near everything they’ve done since WW II has been a waste of taxpayer dollars and lives. The reputation of the American Government worldwide has never been worse.
But there’s no doubt that entering into WW II was justified. They were attacked by Japan.
The Axis forces – Hitler in particular – had to be stopped. I said in High School that I’d go back in time and kill Hitler in the crib if I could.
I thank the USA for entering into WW II. And for doing a good job in helping to end that war as quickly as possible.
You can argue that only one nuclear bomb was needed in Japan, not two. But – to be fair – it’s difficult to judge those making the decisions at that time.
