Or when Truman had hundreds of thousands of Japanese civilians executed with bombs.
And people wonder why the two party system has such sway over American political thinking.
As opposed to the stuff people say about Kennedy and Mary Jo?
Japan attacked us. We attacked Iraq. Two different situations to anyone who isn't a moral cripple. Or in the bunker with Bush.
Well, at least you aren't far, far left. Most people over there compare Truman to Hitler.
But, does the killing of a few hundred servicemen compare to the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians?
OH WAIT I THOUGHT HE SAID IRAQI CIVILIANS?
Nice try, but you've been caught.
I didn't refer to Ted--I was referring to what I thought was an extremely inappropriate comparison between 17 year old Laura Welch and Ted Kennedy. Maybe they were both accidents, I don't know.
But Ted was a sitting US Senator when it happened, while the other concerned a non-elected person 35 years before she came into the public eye.
That's why I thought bringing up the latter was out of line, because the two are not the same.
what? I didn't think in the fog of war, that you libs cared whether what civilians get killed. I mean, morally speaking, wouldn't you agree that killing hundreds of thousands of Japanese civilians > a few thousand Iraqi civilians ???
I was referring to WWII, where Japan killed a few hundred or thousand whichever it is servicemen and we responded by killing hundreds of thousands? Doesn't that make your skin crawl?
I'm still waiting for said link proving that it was premeditated murder, btw
It was an intersection with no obstructions on a deserted road and the car she happens to run into was her boyfriend's. That would make an awfully unusual coincidence.
They did report it, but no one cared.
And I thought it was the conservatives that were always complaining liberals were playing moral equivalence games. None of this has any bearing on Larry Craig and none of it diminishes what he did.
It's upsetting that it came to the a-bomb, and I disagree that it had to end that way. However I could never bring myself to necessarily blame Truman for coming to that decision. He was faced with sacrificing up to 100,000 more American servicemen with an invasion of Japan, not to mention the many civilians that would have died as a result of that invasion.
I'm just playing devil's advocate
Absolutely. Which is why it was silly for whoever brought it up in the first place to do so.
