He posted this crap last year sometime and I took the bait... Argued for hours. Today, he posts the same shit. Self-loathing Americans are pathetic.

Over in the Lounge there is a discussion regarding the Japs plan before the 2 bombs were dropped. Immoral my ass. Your FB friend is uninformed.

Maybe your "friend" exists because the bombs were dropped. You really should waste no more mental energy on these guilt ridden virtue signaling morons.

I found the thread in the lounge and dropped the link from the WSJ opinion article in his thread. He only has a couple "likes" and 21 comments so that tells me most people do not accept his revisionist perspective which is refreshing.

One of my arguments with him, ignored of course, was how the Japanese treated the Chinese in WWII. This time I don't engage, just drop my bombs of truth on his thread.

If only there was some way to avoid a brutal ass kicking like, ummm, not attacking us first.

Or the treatment of Allied POWs. Just watched a documentary from 2001 about the real Bridge on the River Kwai - hosted by Roger Mudd and narrated by Edward Woodward. When the truth is told and the facts are known, it's incredible to believe that any survived at all.

OK, so what would have been the "moral" solution?

It's easy to claim such things years, decades, after the fact, when we have piles and piles of information, and one has the luxury to study and think about it, it's an entirely different thing when every minute you delay making those choices, people are dying. And no matter what you choose, there's going to be blood, lots of it. Theirs, ours, all in varying degrees, and nothing is certain.

But again, we, and your douche nozzle friend, have that luxury of time. So, what's the right choice, in his opinion?

Facebook idiots used to piss me off.

Until I deleted my Facebook.

I thought I would miss it.

I do not.

Highly recommend.




Knowing what one is talking about is widely admired but not strictly required here.

Although sometimes distracting, there is often a certain entertainment value to this easy standard.

The Japanese should have thought about that before their Pearl invasion. Those bombs ended a lot of shit and further death.

Fakebook is a waste of time. Delete your account. They sell all your information off and fuck your privacy three ways to Sunday. And they are commie run.

They literally stormed maternity wards. Drug everyone outside so they could bayonet the babies.

Anyone that wants to argue about moral high ground & the H Bomb. Their argument is lost on me.

I have not and will not subscribe to any kind of social media, it just doesn't fit in my life and I've no need of it..

That said, there is always the collateral damage and loss of souls as a result of wars and ideologies all over the world to choose from since the birth of mankind and I'd suspect until the very end. Thou shall not kill just doesn't seem to apply though I wish it were different. My Dad being a WWII vet and Sgt in the paratroopers in Korea and the Philippines. I can only imagine the changes that occur when faced with having to kill another, somebody like them with a family and friends and perhaps a good life. He never spoke hardly a word of it ever, but I knew it changed him as I'm mostly certain it does to all, yes, war is hell..


Regards, Will G.

I don't consider SIGforum "Social Media". And when it comes right down to it, I believe you think that as well.

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24
