What better way is there to wrap up a story about the sixty year anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, then to throw in a completely gratuitous slap at the President?
The A-bomb indeed was hell for Japanese who lived in or near Hiroshima and Nagasaki. But it also was the high-water mark of WWII because it ended the hell for all others fighting that conflict.(Via LGF).
Truman will be remembered as the president who brought us both victory and peace in a war that was justified and necessary. By contrast, self-proclaimed "War President" George Bush has brought us neither victory nor peace in the Iraq war, which former president Jimmy Carter this week called "unnecessary and unjust."
