It's only blind patriotism which could lead someone to try to justify the war crimes at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Those acts were intrinsically evil. People who attempt to justify them on the basis that an invasion would have been worse are no better than those who attempt to justify abortion by saying the child would have suffered in life. Some things are grave offenses against Divine Law and simply cannot be done for any reason.

Fishie for that one.  Well said.
