I was listening to an academic on C-Span who was saying that we should never have dropped the atomic bombs during WW2 and that they were totally unnecessary. My first thought was that his father or grandfather was not fighting in the Pacific at that time or that his father or grandfather was an academic who thought that fighting a war with Hitler over retaking the Ruhr was not called for either!

Had the so called American Firsters who were mostly acedemics taken on Hitler at that time six dead Nazi’s (including Hitler) instead of 60 million dead! The Academic children and grandchildren of these firster folks are once again reasserting themselves and one can only hope that they have learned from the mistakes of their fore bearers. If not way more than 60 million dead the next time around!

And that is all I’m going to say about that!
