You may have heard that the US Ambassador to Japan will be attending the upcoming ceremonies at the Hiroshima memorial?  As current and long time allies, our solemn respect is certainly appropriate.

To provide some perspective, the Belmont Club asks if anyone knows of any events that caused a larger loss of civilian life than Hiroshima.  And indeed there were at least two.

The difference?  Those people who fought on the side of freedom then are forgotten.  Those who we fought simply omit those atrocities from their national histories.  And time marches on.
