It was on this date in 1945 that Hiroshima was destroyed by a new weapon, a single bomb dropped by a B-29 named Enola Gay, named after the mother of the pilot, Colonel Paul Tibbets. In the years since, many have tried to make the point that dropping of the bombs was an unnecessary act, as they claim the Japanese home islands were on the verge of defeat and would have surrendered soon enough without dropping the bomb.

  1. Not this idiocy again! The morons who whine about us dropping the bombs have ZERO (no pun intended) idea what the hell they’re talking about. I lump them in with the “we never landed on the moon” folks… all nutjobs.

  2. Fat Man and Little Boy may have killed thousands and wounded more, but they saved millions of lives. Anyone who believes we bombed them for purely racist reasons after looking at the whole situation, known to US and unknown to Truman,… In my opinion need to be evaluated for their competency.

    1. Bill, you need to keep caught up with the latest fads. One of the more popular revisionist claims now is that Truman dropped the bombs on Japan to intimidate the Soviet Union. {facepalm}
