Don't be STUPID like Iowa an Texas:

(stupid) Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz like (stupid) Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, threatened Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe.

Election observers with be arrest if they came within 300 feet of a polling place’s entrance, in violation of state law.(In Texas, it’s 100 feet.)

Look at the Republican tea bagges, these people might have Diplomatic Imunity?

I agree when there is a crime here, they will only show the photo's and description if they are white, and I know where u are coming from if u are from that racist area of redding.

They were finished. The fact is Japan's primary reason for being in the war was to secure resources from abroad. They were tapped out. No more ships, no more navy, no more airplanes, no fuel, and little food. What was Japan going to do?

In 1971, South African author Laurens Van Der Post put it between covers of a thin book entitled “The Prisoner and the Bomb.” Van Der Post spent the war as a prisoner of the Japanese in a concentration camp in what had been the Dutch East Indies, now Indonesia. He spoke fluent Japanese.
Suicidal warfare did not begin with Islamic extremism. Remember the kamikaze pilots, trained to fly their planes right into American ships? The Japanese people were perfectly willing to die, down to the last one, for the emperor. Being overpowered by a new weapon was not why Japan surrendered immediately after the two bombs.
Van Der Post tells us that the revolutionary nature of the A-bomb was interpreted by the Japanese as the “Flash from Heaven” that released them from their obligation to die for the emperor and enabled them to surrender.
at the end, the Japanese held over 95 percent of everything they’d conquered: a huge hunk of China, all of Manchuria and Korea, Indonesia, Malaya, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong; they’d only lost a few islands to American invasion. Across that vast empire there were hundreds of Japanese prison camps with millions of prisoners enduring treatment that rivaled the Holocaust.
Van Der Post estimated that, if the war had lasted only another six weeks, more lives would have been lost in those prison camps through starvation, disease and cruelty than were lost to the atomic bombing. Despite Japan’s dire situation, if their “suicide” mindset had remained intact, it would have taken much longer than six weeks to end it.
The liberal view is not always correct.

You need to watch your labeling

I am a liberal

Truman did the right thing dropping the bomb, both times.

Saved countless lives on both sides.

The problem is, people that get their opinions from say.. radio personalities for example have everything divided black and white for them... all liberals are for this etc

The world isn’t anything like that, so they have a distorted view from the get go.

I am not what you would call a war monger, I think our invasion of Iraq was a travesty of almost unprecedented proportions, going to war over something that wasn’t even true. How many times has our nation gone to war over a lie?( I can think of one other time I suppose )

I do agree that the firebombing of Tokyo was dramatic, but you have to put yourself in that time, not this time. From that times perspective, it was appropriate. The backstabbing move against Pearl Harbor and the timing of it… made it called for, from the perspective of the times.

that remark was aimed at riccardo, for his getting off on the nooking....

at least that is the way he toned it in his post....

it certainly is a good debate...

i guess harry didnt scare the russians as much as he had hoped they would, since they later challenged us with tit for TAT( short-medium range)nooookular missles, which is unacceptable for the leadership of the most powerful country....

that is the paradigm.

and kennedy cut a deal(take missles out of turkey that were already being taken out), part of that deal was not to disclose the news of that deal until later.... so kennedy AND kruschev could save face.

except that we are techinically "commofacsists" "

it takes some extrodianary mental gymnastics to combine both extream ends of the poltical spectrum into one type of person.

and that type of person just happens to be anyone who doesnt agree with tea-orthodoxy 100%....otherwise?>> you get drummed out of the NEW NEW republican party!
