Response to TreasonousBastard (Original post)

14. A few years ago on one of the anniversaries of the dropping of atomic bombs on Japan I

researched the firebombing of Tokyo*. The estimates of civilian casualties in that operation were
120,000 to 200,000. And that was using only conventional incendiary bombs. That's certainly
equivalent to the deaths caused by the atomic blasts. Thanks for the reminder that War is indeed its own hell.

*I found this information on a website that lists the casualties of many different bombing operations
during WWII.
