116. In comparison to what you have suffered, you are right, I know nothing.
What I do know is that there is nothing simple in this world, even killing.

This thread was not meant to argue that Hiroshima or Nagasaki were justified, but to put them in the context of the times. There were other options, and indeed, maybe they would have been better (the argument to blow up one in Tokyo bay, with the threat to drop the next one over a city unless surrender followed has particular merit) yet the decision was not as simple as some have argued it was either.

I am sorry for your loss, I truly am.
