    It’s insane to me that we are taught to see it as a necessary and justified act. Yes, Japan refused to surrender, attacked us first, and their military committed horrific acts on the
    Chinese and Koreans.

    But, none of that justifies obliterating two cities full of children.
    :mindblown:

    The Germans killing six million jews was. But dropping the atomic bomb on hiroshima and nagasaki is a close second.

    You’re right, but I consider it more of a genocide than a war crime.

    The Holocaust predates the war and wasn’t the reason behind WWII so it’s not really a war crime. Europe was content to look away until Germany started invading other countries.

    Yeah it was pretty fukked up but more people would’ve died if it didn’t happen. But yeah, war is messy.

    The atomic bombs killed 200,000+ civilians. Pearl Harbor killed 68 civilians and 2350 soldiers.

    It inspired Akira and Evangelion, sounds like a fair trade tbh.

    Yeah but Japan started it so it ain't really looked at like that. :manny:

    They honestly had no real reason to declare on America, at least not the way they did it


    America got them back tho. Nuked them and the fallout turned the legendary imperial Japanese soldiers into anime watching incels :unimpressed:

    This. The Pearl Harbor attack was flawlessly executed but those tables turned. Japan got the message loud and clear. :myman::ufdup:

    Mix a relentless enemy willing to do anything, including suicide runs to win with a President with low moral fiber & advisors eager to test out a new weapon to appease a war weary country.
