small dead animals: The Ruins Of War

Back on August 6th, many marked the 60th anniverary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. small dead animals: The Ruins Of War has pictures, but not of what you would think. Take a look. Joey W had this to say in the comments
"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....)

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."
A very good point. Hat Tip: Baldilocks
