I'm sorry, but I really don't feel like remembering that. I don't like how the surrender came to be.

^dumbasses, without the bomb more lives would have been lost from continuing war casulties

More Japanese civilians would have been killed with conventional weapons that with the Atomic bombs. Not to mention countless Japanese and American soldiers.

^ The Russians would have invaded northern Japan, most likely, and Japan would have been divided similarly to Korea and Vietnam, causing future wars.

^^^^ Future wars between what? America and the USSR? Perhaps...oh wait, there was a cold war between the two anyways. Worst that would have happened would have been a wall like that built in Berlin.

^ Have you heard of the Korean of Vietnam War? And I don't think Japan would have been better off with half of it poor and communist.

CommieWerewolf doesn't know his history, or he's know that wars were almost fought over Berlin twice. Communism fails at everything.

Itís reassuring that Locke5 can so deftly gaze into the vast spectrum of alternate histories. Otherwise, I might feel a bit hesitant about celebrating the first and hopefully last instance of nuclear terrorism...

It's the only "alternate" history backed up by the battle plans of both sides of the war, dumbass.

the A-bomb saved hundreds of thousands if not millions of american and japanese lives, not to mention prevented those godless communist bastards from taking a chunk of japan. Anyone who is familiar with what the invasion plans for japan entailed knows this.

He doesn't need to cite sources on images and sound clips from 61 years ago. I believe they're public record now.

While it is possible to "meet" people on the Internet, I'll concede that it was a very ignorant choice of words in this situation if you concede that "nuclear terrorism" is an ignorant choice of words to use regarding this event.

On the same day 3 years earlier, the Army designated its first airborne division, the 82nd Airborne Division. Also, tomorrow is National Airborne Day, being the anniversary of the first successful jump of the Army Parachute Test Platoon. Don't ask me how I know these fun facts.

If you examine the basic criteria of what classifies terrorism, youíll discover that the nuclear bombardment of Japan matches said criteria almost without exception. The eradication of civilian populations or installations of little to no military significance, the intention of inflicting fear upon a given enemy, etc. But this is hardly a suitable forum for intelligent debate, so Iím making this my final word on the matter...

Victory over Japan Day is the 14th, not the 15th. It was only the 15th in Japan.

5 for history and intelligent conversation(mostly). zer0hue, notice that the islamic terrorists we fight against are not the military force of any particular country, don't wear military uniforms, employ guerilla warefare tactics, will bomb random people, will bomb people out of intolerence for others religion, and will strap bombs onto children. When we nuked Japan, we killed the enemy.

maybe it was "terrorism", but it was necessary to end the war. And it actually did make the world a better place (in the long run) for both the japanese and the americans, unlike islamic terrorism which seeks to make the world united under an oppressive and backwards religious extremism. War is ugly, on that I think we can all agree.

Most definitions of terrorism don't allow for the actions of a government's military to be called terrorism. You can call them war crimes, but not terrorism. Also, many of the "terrorists" in Iraq are misnamed because attacks on United States forces or Iraqi forces are not acts of terrorism. Obviously this doesn't apply to those who attack Iraqi civilians, but I get quite annoyed at our military when it refers to all enemies in Iraq as terrorists. The word is thrown around quite liberally.

I would just like to say to you, Locke5, that your understanding of history and global events is superb. It is too bad that there are too many stupid people in the world making asinine comments like they do that have downvoted your site. Kudos to you, my friend and patriot.
