2. Doesn't lessen the tragedy of 155K dead
although I see your point. Hiroshima had 150K dead, and this has surpassed that...

I will say that your post reminds me a little of the talk I get from republican friends who say that 1400 americans dead in Iraq is not a big deal because we lost 58,000 in Vietnam... Worse, yes, but no less tragic.
