Hold your **** OP. We we in WORLD WAR II. If we invaded Japan we would have lost men more than you could imagine. We were getting our asses kicked even taking over tiny islands for our island hopping technique. Invading an island is one hell of a lot harder than defending it. Japan was the wasp nest of it all too. We would have lost men on a scale you couldn't imagine. Also, we told Japan we had a new weapon and they didn't surrender. We dropped pamphlets telling the citizens that they were about to be bombed hours before we bombed them. They had their chance to leave. And I don't recall getting warned about 9/11. And same goes for the second bombing. We warned them. Of course no body wanted to bomb them but it was to save our troops. They would have done the same if they could. Don't forget about Pearl Harbor.

#TL;DR America warned Japan+ we were at WAR. 9/11 was a terrorist act.

>Japan attacks Pearl harbor 2,402 Americans were killed and 1,282 wounded, they then take Attu island, albeit small and pretty worthless, but still American soil.
>US warns Japan that we have a weapon of unimaginable destruction, and ask Japan to surrender.
>Japan refuses to surrender so American bombs them once.
>American begs Japan to surrender, they once again refuse so we bomb them again.
>Japan finally begrudgingly surrenders to us and we help them rebuild what was destroyed.
And all of this happened after several years of brutal warfare that claimed the lives of thousands of more American GI's. We could have sent the Marine Corps through their island and completely destroyed them, but instead we used a option that looked brutal but saved the lives of millions of more people, then we forgave them and helped them out. Botherway the Japs still hold memorials to Japanese mini sub captains which includes those who commited the attack on Pearl Harbor. So OP (not gonna go into the middle east) but if you actually knew what the **** you were talking about, you would quickly learn that America was actually very nice to Japan considering what they had done and continued to do (btw, it included torturing POWS).

Posted this comment last time this picture was posted just a year ago.

"Why the hell is everyone arguing about us nuking Japan? They brought us into a war we didn't want to be in that killed hundreds of Americans every month.

It was either nuke them, or invade, and invading would have gotten a lot more people killed, Japanese and American alike. we even had an invasion planned which would have been almost 5x larger than D-day. We even got the Soviets to help us by invading from the north.

The U.S. wouldn't have needed the second bomb if Japan had just surrendered after the first one.

Learn your history, ******** ."

This is an "apples & oranges" argument; Hiroshima was a government sanctioned act of War during an officially declared wartime in response to attacks on the United States, whom with its allies in the UK and China issued the Potsdam Declaration giving ample warning to the Japanese government calling for a full military stand-down & disarming and surrender or they would respond "prompt and utter destruction" which was a reference to the possession of Nuclear Weapons by the United States military. The Japanese government attempted to hide the declaration from the civilian population. They were, however, informed by the United States military via leaflets dropped from American bombers, and almost unanimously called for the acceptance the terms set forth by the Potsdam Declaration. The Japanese government then openly announced that it was firm in its position to reject these terms. The bombs were dropped on specific military targets with efforts to reduce civilian casualties.

9/11 was an attack by al-Queda, a known terrorist organization, that was provoked by the presence of troops in Saudi Arabia, primarily during Operation Southern Watch, following the 1991 Gulf War, an occupation that was supported by the country's governing body and military. Second by the US support of efforts to prevent further harm to the people of the region and the world by the Military Dictatorship led by Sadam Hussein that held government power in Iraq at the time. And third by the US support of Israel in the Middle East, an alliance that was formed in order to protect the people of Israel from religious prosecution and attack, and also to stop the spread of the USSR's influence in the region. The targets of 9/11 were chosen for maximum total casualties.

and for those tl;dr: The atomic bombs were dropped after warning that followed all commonly accepted practices of civilized warfare, and the 9/11 by group of religious radicalists.

Apples and oranges.

Japanese bombings were an act of war. 9/11 was an act of terrorism. Know the difference.

I think, deep down, the foundation of the rest of the world's annoyance with the USA is their patriotism. Sure, everyone likes to be patriotic of their country, but there seem to be a high proportion of Americans who take their patriotism overboard, making them sound arrogant, small minded and xenophobic.

America is not the greatest country in the world, it is just an other country on this planet, with it's ups and downs, pros and cons.

Whilst I do think that anyone has the right to mourn any death, including the Americans of 9/11, some Americans use it as an excuse to insult and make other nations out to be evil, and America to be the only righteous country in the world. That's what's bloody annoying and wrong.

Also,, for all those who argue "Hiroshima and Nagasaki were acts of war, so it's not as bad as 9/11", let's see how you react when you are killed in a massacre of innocents, simply because your government decided to go to war with another country, a decision in which you had nothing to do with.

Really? People are talking about 9/11 on 9/11? I had no ******* idea. I mean it's only the worst terrorist attack in human history. You'd think the History Channel would stop running TV specials about a historical event that I barely understand. I want to hear more about Hiroshima and Nagasaki. No, I don't care that there's a already show on about them at least 3 times a day. I want to hear less about bad things that have happened to america and more about bad things that america has done. Public interest be damned.

While we're at it let's cancel Shark Week. We get it, you're sharks. It's been 400 Million years. I don't care if running shows about it gets you high ratings. You need to stop talking about it, because it angers me as an angry internet troll that can't muster up the originality to criticize a country without using a picture that's already been posted dozens of times.

Can't compare them, one was during a time of war, the other was an unforeseen act of terrorism. So 						****					 you to whoever thumbed it up.

I think OP post this picture for all the ********** ...

On the other hand, we can't remember the people who died for no reason? Sorry, for respecting them and only talking about it ON SEPTEMBER 11TH! The families lost someone they love for no reason.

Hiroshima/Nagasaki-Acts of war(they declared on us) during war time, and only after repeated attempts had been made to get them to surrender. They were given the chance to surrender after the first bomb was dropped, but they refused again.
NY, NY 9/11 - Unprovoked attack on civilian target. Not at war, no warning given.

There is a little difference there.

Here is why these two events cannot be compared:

In mid 1945, Japan had already lost all their extra territory. Iwo Jima and Okinawa were considered Japanese soil, and foreign flags were flying on them for the first time in 3000 years. With Europe finished, the USA had nearly the entirety of its armed forces there. Russia just took back parts of Manchuria for the Chinese, and England was moving some troops over to participate. The Japanese government realized they were about to get gangbanged, so they took initiative.

And by initiative, I mean they handed almost every last one of their 20,000,000 civilians with weapons, ranging from sharpened bamboo sticks to hand grenades to their grandfather's samurai sword. Mothers were told to use their crying babies as bait, children were told to hold grenades and run into Allied camps, and others were told to burn down their houses once American soldiers walked inside.

So, nuking Japan was a relatively bloodless end to the war. While it may have been more moral to drop one of the coast first and then say, "You see that? The next one's up your ass." However, it still - in the long run - saved the Japanese people from being completely wiped off the face of the earth and prevented the deaths of untold millions of people.

Meanwhile, the 9/11 attacks happened because Muslim extremists didn't like Western culture, so they decided to **** up the West's most iconic skyline. Also, people are going to whine more about 9/11 because it didn't happen 80 ******* years ago.

TL;DR Truman's decision to nuke Japan was moral on the grounds that it saved millions of lives and prevented the destruction of one of the earth's oldest civilizations, whereas 9/11 was an unexpected attack that metaphorically kicked us in the balls.

You shut your face unless you want to get nuked too.

if you think about it, they are different situations.

When America nuked japan they were already in war plus they gave warnings and the option to surrender

the 9/11 attack was a sneaky, coward move in which they used a plane full of civilians. When america nuked Japan they at least did it for an actual cause, and they succeeded, the war ended just a couple of days after the nuke
