Why didn’t Britain make the bomb?  (May 3, 2013 | post #35118)

That’s just history and you need to get over it.  (May 3, 2013 | post #35114)

The point you’re missing is that WE made it happen and we would have made it happen with or without outside help. It is a small world and the theory of nuclear weapons like the theory of space travel had been around for years we simply used and assembled the necessary elements to make it happen.  (May 3, 2013 | post #35105)

Well dipshit, the Japanese had bombed Nanking and hundreds of other cities across China before Pearl Harbor. They had already crossed the line. Manila, Darwin, and Singapore were bombed before the Doolittle raid even took place.  (May 3, 2013 | post #35104)

Speaking of Alzheimer’s, we’ve been through all this before. There were atrocities on both sides and as in all wars, the loser suffered the most. I specifically referred to WW2 as a reference to the indiscriminate attacks on civilian populations as a tactic of modern war. If you want to look for earlier examples of war and genocide look at Rome, the Mongols, the Huns, the Egyptians, etc.  (May 3, 2013 | post #35101)

Britain didn’t make us do anything except declare our independence.  (May 3, 2013 | post #35095)

Killing and terrorizing civilians as a wartime strategy was a line you Europeans crossed long before the US ever got involved in WW2. Remember Warsaw, the Blitz, Malta and Rotterdam, not to mention British retaliation on Germany. Fact is, far, far more civilians were incinerated by conventional bombs than those killed by nuclear weapons.  (May 3, 2013 | post #35092)

We made the first working model, so in a sense we did invent it. Before that, it was only a theory.  (May 3, 2013 | post #35090)

What is war if not “premeditated mass murder”? Japan knew that when it attacked Pearl Harbor and killed over two thousand Americans.  (May 3, 2013 | post #35088)

Oppenheimer as head of the project comes to mind. There were a lot of aspects to making the bomb. Producing the necessary ingredients and materials, designing and building the detonating system, and a thousand other items that had to be engineered and tested. By 1943 the US had spent over a billion dollars on the project while Britain had spent just a little over a half million pounds. Perhaps Britain would have eventually made a bomb and perhaps someday Britain will land on the moon.  (May 3, 2013 | post #35086)

What you failed to understand is that if we hadn’t had the atom bomb, we would have come up with something else. In 1945, the US 7th fleet off the coast of Japan was larger than the rest of the world’s navies combined. The large scale bombing raids from the Marianas were destroying entire cities at a time and once Okinawa was secure the bombers would have been moved closer. Had we used the atom bomb on Tokyo in August of 1945, I doubt if anyone would have noticed. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were chosen because they were still relatively unscathed. Japan was defeated, the atom bomb just made them accept it. BTW-in 1945 just like today, the Aussies, the Brits and the Canadians were right by our sides.  (May 3, 2013 | post #35082)
