Saturday, August 6, 2005

Today is the anniversary of the day 60 years ago that the USA decided to drop the A-bomb on Hiroshima. While it did kill some people, it saved millions more. If you do not agree, you do not understand what was happening at that time in history.

There were kamikazes bombarding our ships, our men on land, wherever they were thought to be. The Japanese were determined to spread their religion all across all the earth. There was only one way to stop them. That would be a complete surrender.

So yes, the bomb was dropped. Did they surrender? No. They were asked to surrender, but they would not. That is the reason for the second bomb. It is easy to sit back today in the comforts of your wealth which you may not have had but for the fact we had the insight to fight this war to win it.

I hate what has happened since then. People feel too comfortable to fight. If you give up the fight before the war begins, you have already lost. There are some who have insisted upon this. Be grateful there is a man in the White House who has the steel to stay the course. Some want to negotiate with "people" whom have about as much interest in negotiations as did the Japanese. Don't give me the politically correct version of what you believe. Speak to someone who was there.

Shall we allow political correctness condemn us to death, or are we willing to stand up and say, "We are not going to worry whether or not you're offended. Our men and women are dead. Frankly, I don't give a damn if you're offended. I am offended at the air you breathe that may infiltrate my lungs. If you don't like it here, get the hell out of our country."

The Japanese who are our friends today are not the Japanese of WWII. I want to make this distinction clear, because it isn't fair to blame them for past tragedies. Thank you.
