      The Japanese were killing 70,000 Chinese a week at the end of WWII. Most of those dead were civilians.  I truly believe that the atomic weapons were necessary to end the war and stop that killing.  How many more weeks would you have wanted the killing in China to continue? How many Americans would you have been willing to sacrifice to end the war.

      I am OK with the decision to drop the bombs and Col Tibbett's role in it.

      11/7/06. America won. The Republicans lost. Our duty is to earn that trust.
