poll: use of atomic bombs in wwii was okfrom ap: A majority of Americans surveyed think dropping atomic bombs on Japan during World War II was the right thing to do, but support was weaker among Democrats, women, younger voters and minority voters, according to a Quinnipiac University poll. The poll, released Tuesday, found 61% of the more than 2,400 American voters questioned think the U.S. did the right thing; 22% called it wrong, and 16% were undecided. The first bomb was dropped Aug. 6, 1945, on Hiroshima. An estimated 140,000 people were killed instantly or died within a few months. Tens of thousands more died from radiation poisoning in the years following. Three days later, another bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, killing about 80,000 people. Japan surrendered less than a week later.

    start the cold war to get elected on yer own merits? murder 600,000 people in 56 hours (killing people 25 times faster than the Nazis). Start the Atomic Age that will never go away until we give the planet back to the butterflies.
    Truman, managed by Clark Clifford and others tied to Goldman-Sachs, J.P. Morgan, etc … is held up to our eyes by the oligarchy as the perfect President.
    WTF?
