Hiroshima Day: The Nuclear Warmongers Are OutSubmitted by J.K. Baltzersen on Mon, 08/06/2012 - 16:44
Today, LRC reran John V. Denson's The Hiroshima Lie.
This is, however, also the day when the nuclear warmongers come out for a field day.
One such example is here. One comment in the comments thread almost asks for revisionist views. So if you feel like it, please feel free to give them a hard time.
Eisenhower later revealed his position:
I was against it on two counts. First, the Japanese were ready to surrender, and it wasn't necessary to hit them with that awful thing. Second, I hated to see our country be the first to use such a weapon.
One could wonder whether these "right-wingers," who evidently label any criticism of the nuking as coming from ignorant revisionist leftists removed from reality, also would label Eisenhower as such.
