My father was reclassified 1-A on VJ day. Do you think I regret the bomb? No way. My father would have been one of the 500,000 coming home in body bags.Comment Posted By Tom Johnson On 7.08.2005 @ 16:24
Invading Japan would have been a nightmare: Iwo Jima and the rest of the islands showed us that. Nanking and the Phillipines showed us the respect for non-Japanese life present in Japan.
So get over it.
Truman was right.
Rick: caution is urged when considering material from WAPO. Their reliability is not perfect. WAPO has joined NYT in abolishing the distinction between the editorial page and the front page.
You may count on this: the WAPO will put the worst possible light on what they find. And if what they find is not bad enough, they will embellish it (edit it) so that it comes out worse.
What eyewitness accounts? What eyewitnesses? Interviews with what interrogators? What classified documents, and how did they obtain access to classified documents?
And as was the case with Sen. Durbin, I ask (not as a joke) how this compares with Cook County, IL?
Too many previous WAPO reports have turned out to be specious.
Just look at the Karl Rove fiasco, where Robert Novak claimed he used Who's Who to get his supposedly classified information.
Do not be too quick to come to a conclusion. As was the case with Joe Wilson, wait until the other shoe drops.Comment Posted By Tom Johnson On 4.08.2005 @ 11:52
It is time to set a timetable for withdrawl from the Phillipines. Then Germany. Then South Korea. Then Japan. France kicked us out a long time ago.Comment Posted By Tom Johnson On 16.06.2005 @ 18:24
Iraq is a long ways in the future for withdrawl. A lot of other countries come first!
