Schalow [professor of Japanese at Rutgers University] speculated that Roos’ [US ambassador to Japan] visit could be a step toward positioning the U.S. to condemn any future use of atomic weapons, perhaps by North Korea.
“If we show some regret of our own use of the weapon, if it happens again, we’re in a moral position to criticize,” he said. “As of now, we’re not in a position to denounce it.”
More of the same from this apologist president and his Marxist regime.
Gee, if we just apologize one more time, if we claim guilt for ending the war and saving the lives of millions of American soldiers, we will somehow deter the nutcase dictators in the world and they will finally see the light! They will see how much we regret this action and boy howdy, they won’t want to follow in our footsteps! This will be the moment, this will be the action that will heal the world and bring everlasting peace to all mankind:
The absolute shameless arrogance of this man is just amazing. Can you imagine another term with this guy? This just cannot happen. We cannot allow this to happen.
We are not in a moral position to criticize the use of WMD? Since when? We didn’t attack Japan on December 7th 1941. It was a sneak attack on our territory, on our soldiers. And we proceeded to fight a bloody Pacific war which ended when WE ENDED IT with the dropping of 2 atomic bombs. And it saved millions of lives, including those of the Japanese empire. Was it a dreadful thing to do? Yes, no question. But allowing the sacrifice of an entire generation of American men would have been more dreadful, more horrendous. The choice was not pleasant but it was necessary.
We don’t owe the Japanese anything., least of all an apology. We rebuilt Japan. We helped produce one of the most productive and successful democracies in the world. Our soldiers are still there to help protect the sovereignty of the nation.
At this point in time, this president is positioning us again to bow and apologize. How much longer will this go on?
