Was the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki justified?

musicgrl_my
Nukalord

President Harry Truman was NOT justified. Three points and that's all I'll need. 1. The Nightmare was gruesome. Skin hung from people's body, the dead floated down the river while children with burn all over their back went to get a drink, hospitals collapsed killing many doctors and nurse causing the line of needed to be treated victims was unending, the radiation gave many cancer such as leukemia over the years. 2. Japan was already weak through its military and economy. The reason wh...

Do you think the United States should send ground troops to help the fight against ISIS?

Ludes

In my opinion, the United States has not done enough to stop ISIS. All they have done is send in air strikes. If we want to stop ISIS we need to send in troops and have them attack ISIS head on. Plus we should feel obliged to help because France was recently attacked and we are their ally....

Don't you think the Boston Bombing was over hyped?

TheAdiDebater

First of all, I understand and acknowledge that the Boston bombing was a terrible event which never should have occurred. But don't you ever stop and think that a big deal is being made out of something substantially smaller? People were even thinking this could be compared to 9/11. On the same day 42 people die in an earthquake in Iraq. But does that receive even a tenth of what the Boston bombings received. No. This can't be defended....

Dylann Roof death penalty

mars4435
OpinionPersom121

I understand that the person killed innocent people and that is a serious crime against humanity, especially the victim's close relatives and loved ones , but in the long-term putting Dylann Roof in life imprisonment is the best resolution. The way this would be best sentence instead of a death sentence is because if you were to sentence him to death he would feel only physical pain for a certain amount of time depending what type of way he dies ,while if you imprisoned him for life isolating hi...

Resolved: The average intelligence of a Fox News Anchor is = or < the average intelligence of a rock

imabench
Wallstreetatheist

The resolution is pretty straightforward, Pro must argue why the average Fox News anchorman is about as smart as a rock or less than that of a rock, while the con must argue that Fox News anchormen are capable of intellectual thought, reasoning, and logical conclusions based on evidence. First round is acceptance only :D...
