On this date 65 years ago, the Mayor of Nagasaki placed himself in the history books by calling the Mayor of Hiroshima and exclaiming: “Did you see that shit? What the hell was that?”
For those apologists that think we should apologize for dropping the bomb, I remind you that the empire of Japan was a savage, warmongering people, whose soldiers killed 200,000 people and raped over 20,000 women and young girls during the winter of 1937-1938 in “The rape of Nanking”. Japan was hardly an innocent victim.

The Japanese were the aggressors in Asia. They claimed it was "American Imperialism" but that doesn't explain why they slaughtered millions of Chinese, Koreans, Vietnamese, and Pacific Islanders in the name of "co prosperity".
Not to mention how they treated prisoners of war.
They fought, they lost, seems like they learned their lesson.
