The dropping of the atomic bomb on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August of 1945 rapidly brought about the end of the World War II hostilities between the United States and Japan, no doubt saving thousands of lives on both sides.
While the order to employ nuclear weapons by Democrat president Harry S. Truman for the first and only time in the history of warfare resulting in the death of tens of thousands of people would be have to be considered extremely difficult the fact of the matter is the decision to do so was necessary and prudent at the time.
Regrettably we are currently saddled with a completely different kind of Democrat president, one Barack Hussein Obama, who has made it his mission to romp around the globe on our dime apologizing to the leaders of every country he lands in for what he feels is the unfortunate existence of our mean nasty and vile country.
The latest example of Obama dropping the ball came during a question and answer session last Friday in Japan when he was asked by a reporter to address the issue of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki with atomic weapons and whether or not he thought it was the right thing to do. One can expect an American president to be asked this question while visiting this particular country in an effort by the home team media to pressure him into saying that perhaps no, it wasn’t something we should have done. Regardless, our president should always defend our actions in this case as a military necessity at the time no matter how difficult it may be for him. That’s what true leaders of great nations are all about.

However, with Mr. Obama there is little chance he will ever defend the military actions of our country no matter the circumstances and as usual he came through with flying colors over in Japan when he refused to defend Truman’s decision to drop the nuclear weapons on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Question: What is your understanding of the historical meaning of the A-bombing in Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Do you think it was the right decision?
Just ONCE I would like to see one of our presidents flip around the question about the Japanese cities we nuked and offer up this simple query, “What is your understanding of the historical meaning of the murderous unprovoked attack on Pearl Harbor by the country of Japan? Do you think it was the right decision?”
Sadly, this particular president is too busy kissing the asses and licking the boots of our former and current enemies…
