"And for Japan to be upset about cruel weapons or inhumane treatment is amazingly hypocritical. Their treatment of POW's, atrocities against civilians in China, the Philippines, Singapore - all documented. Where's the hue and cry for THOSE victims? (A rhetorical question; we all know the answer, un fortunately....)A very good point. Hat Tip: Baldilocks
And lest someone think I'm heartless - I mourn for the victims of Hiroshima. And Dresden. And London. And Tokyo. I just don't feel that it's proper to enshrine one set of victims above another - especially those of the agressor state, when that nation was showing every sign of fighting a very prolonged war that was sure to cost countless lives on both sides."
"O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, . . . in wrath remember mercy" (Habakkuk 3:2).
"Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?" (Psalm 85:6)
