Any historian worth their salt will tell you the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the United States prevented the death of millions according to some estimates. Japan would have been invaded on one end from the United States and from the Soviet Union on the other.
The Japanese were an honor-bound people who believed in fighting to the death. They carried out their own terrible atrocities murdering anywhere from 3 to 9 million Chinese, Malaysian, Indonesian, and Koreans. One example, The Rape of Nanking, sticks out where over six weeks the Japanese army looted, raped and murdered an estimated 40,000 to over 300,000 Chinese civilians and disarmed combatants. They were not known to surrender and the death toll for both the Americans and Japanese would have been extremely high.
That is why it was so infuriating to see Brian Williams claim the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were carried out by the United States because of “anger.”
This is outrageous. What we did was based on military strategy. President Truman did not have a fit and one day decide to bomb two Japanese cities. Such an accusation does a disservice to Truman, our military leaders, and our veterans.
The fact that Brian Williams is still employed after being outed as a known liar shows just how far the media is willing to go to continue to lie and now attack our greatest generation that fought some of the most evil people to have ever lived.
I’m so disgusted he is even given a platform to spread his lies.
Send this along to others. Let them know how our bias and corrupt media is portraying our actions in World War II.
