Yet Another Must Read at the American Thinker

After reading about ten billion editorials on Hiroshima earlier this month--all of them getting the point completely wrong--I decided to act. In my opinion, the bombing was completely justified, and well deserved.

Here is my piece about Hiroshima at the American Thinker. A teaser:

Now that our annual self-flagellation over Hiroshima and Nagasaki is over, we Americans owe it to ourselves to look back at the wartime events leading up to the dropping of atomic bombs on Japan. For 60 years, opponents of President Truman’s decision to use atomic weapons have sustained a steady drum beat of criticism in the unassailable forums of America’s newsrooms and college classrooms. Their second-guessing has led to a gradual erosion of America’s perceived moral superiority over our enemies as well as negative repercussions for our present conflicts on the world stage—much to the delight of our adversaries.
