well now Dayton if such an attack is here on US soil , , I predict death and destruction on a lethal scale for the terrorists , and the nation that sponsored them , , and the use of tactical nuclear weapons would be authorized and used with great discretion & planning , , but they will be used . .a US Tomahawk missile will easily carry a tactical nuke , , 10 miles of un-scheduled sunrise sand turned to glass for several hundred years . .
but , that's just my opinion .
Thank you for resisting the revisionist impulse !
Yes, I DO remember when the 2 atomb bombs were used -and how elated we Americans were that we would not have 400,000 more casualties to contend with.
I remember the gold stars in the windows of even our small town. the " Gold Star Mothers" , who rode uneasily in open cars during parades and bond drives.
Two cousins served in North Africa ; another was a chaplain on a Red Cross ship sunk by a Japanese submarine-whose skipper apparently wanted to afford the crew a little practice with the deck guns.
Yeah: we cheered at the news !
Speak about being niave.
Why on earth do your think the |US has nuclear weapon on other nations soil? If America fires a weapon retaliation will only come back to the nation that fires it where the missile is based!
Japan in WW2 offered peace terms at the potsdam conference prior to the nuclear bombs being dropped, but they still dropped them....the genocidal bastards were in power even then! Will America use nuclear weapons......of course the degenerate bastards would without a seconds thought for the consequences as they would be protected from any return actions....you on the other hand....wouldn'tl!
Ooooh and one small point......why should American soldiers be halfway around the world in the first place?

Yes, Japan did offer peace terms. Status quo ante bellum. Essentially, the US and it's allies would leave all territories held by Japan prior to the outbreak of hostilities (including China and Korea), no occupation, no demands for reparations, no war crimes trials, just pretend it never happened.
And it was not just rejected by the US. Thsi rejection was one of the main casus belli for the Soviet Union to enter the war. Every single Allied power (including France and the UK) rejected this "peace term" as unacceptable.
History, it is a nice thing to know.
I have no joy in strife,
Peace is my great desire;
Yet God forbid I lose my life
Through fear to face the fire. -Henry Van Dyke
What a load of tom tit...perhap you should read historical facts...not comics!
Japan offered unconditional surrender...at the potsdam confrence at THE END of the war in europe, on condition the emperor was not impeded is status..... Your reprobates....only yours said no and dropped the nuclear bombs........then accepted the same conditions offered at the Potsdam conference!
As I said..... read historical facts not your AIPAC dogma!
