Don't remember atom bombs while forgetting Pearl Harbor

September 14, 2012 12:00 am

The Japanese were mourning what happened 67 years ago, killing thousands of Japanese. Did they have any guilt when their Japanese planes attacked the Navy base in Pear Harbor, murdering U.S. sailors, Marines, Army and Air Force troops? Do you have any comprehension of what they did on Dec. 7, 1941? We, the American people, should never forget or forgive.

We should have a day to honor a great president, Harry S. Truman, who had the intestinal fortitude in ordering atomic bombs dropped on these two cities of the rising sun. Sorry, but I have no time to cry over their Japanese who died. After all, you started the action and you got just what you deserved.
