Hiroshima was a Necessary Evil....In Response to the Pure Evil That Japan had unleashed.

With Obama in Hiroshima today discussing the "Evil" that was done there I think it is important for everyone to remember why that bomb was dropped in the first place.
Japan had terrorized the Pacific region for years.
The countries they invaded and occupied were as follows....
Mainland China,
Korea,
Taiwan,
Hong Kong,
Vietnam,
Cambodia,
Laos,
Thailand,
Malaysia,
Philippines,
Indonesia,
Singapore,
Myanmar,
East Timor,
New Guinea,
Guam,
Nauru,
Wake Island,
Attu
Kiska Islands,
Kiribati,
South Sakhalin,
Ryukyu Islands,
Bonin Islands,
Kuril Islands,
Volcano Islands,
Minami Tori-Shima,
South Karafuto,
Kwantung,
South Pacific Mandate,
Shandong,
Okinotorishima.
Over 463,677,000 people were under Japanse control. They didn’t gain all of that control through peaceful means either.
It is estimated the Japanese military murdered over 10 million people (many civilians) through mass killings of the Chinese, Koreans, Malaysians, Indonesians, Filipinos, and IndoChinese.
The Japanese soldiers were instructed to “Kill All, Burn All, and Loot All”
The Japanese committed many war crimes and atrocities.
Some of the Massacres the Japanese carried out include the
Alexandra Hospital Massacre,
the Laha Massacre,
Banka Island Massacre,
Parit Sulong Massacre,
Palawan Massacre,
SS Behar Massacre,
SS Tjisalak Massacre,
Wake Island Massacre,
Bataan Death March,
Shin Yo Maru Incident,
Sulug Island Massacre,
Pontianak Incidents.
On top of this the Japanese did Human Experimentation and Used Biological weapons. They also used Chemical weapons. They also tortured and murdered prisoners of war.
So yes there is definitely a country that needs to be apologizing for killing lots and lots and lots of innocent people......BUT The United States is not that country.
On this memorial day as we remember the hundreds of thousands of dead American soldiers laying in graveyards around the world it is important to remember they would also agree no apology should ever be given from the United States.
The goal of the Atomic Bomb was to end the war and it was 100% successful. The war ended and nobody else died.
