This is a bit off-topic even for me. But I have come across an excellent compilation of refutations of those who say dropping The Bomb on Japan was wrong.
I welcome the explanations of anyone who thinks a ground invasion of Japan would have been better. Go ahead, have at it in the comments. But it would not have been better. It would have been worse, much worse, for both sides with perhaps a million Americans dead and God knows how many Japanese. And those who would have done the invading were far, far more aware of that than scholars since pontificating from academia.
And as for the puerile thinking that Japan was the victim here, how can one dare say that in light of widespread and systematic Japanese war crimes? Some Japanese politicians like to sweep those under the rug. We should not help them do so with vomitous moral equivalence idiocy.
In any case, before I get a really good rant going, go read for yourself. I will be charitable and just say if you think dropping The Bomb was wrong, then you are wrong.
