I have researched extensively the atomic bombings of hiroshima and nagasaki, and agree. They were more than unnecessary, for they achieved 0 goals/objectives, or even were supposed to accomplish. They were racist.

I'm interested in 1 and 4 though

I wouldn't call them racist. I would say they were meant to inadvertently keep the Soviets from wanting to go to war with the other allies. Didn't work -- they made their own in few years.

I'm interested in 1 and 4 though

Yeah. 1 is the most interesting for me. I have kinda been obsessed with the American Revolution since my Senior class (juniors at the time) had a debate about whether or not it was justified. We ruled that it wasn't, with the moderates coming in first, King James and the Crown in second, Loyalists third, and Patriots fourth.

There was extreme racism against the Japanese during WW2, which was shared by Truman, and documented.

This is interesting, and would be an interesting debate. Would you want to debate it, I would be Pro (they were justified)

How did the British not stand a chance? They have been able to win wars before. Seems a bit suggestive.

He didn't fear the French and he had no respect for the British. He found Chamberlain to be weak and frail.

It may very well be true, but the article makes basically no case for it.

5 and 3 I agree with

The japs sent a telegram to the US asking for a surrender if their emperor was to be spared. Then the US denied this saying they had to surrender unconditionally causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands.

Not if their Emperor was to be spared, but if the EMPIRE was to be spared. That meant that they still could have absolute power. Instead, they established a Prime Minister for the Japanese.

Japan has had a long tradition and history with their Emperor. They wanted to keep the Emperor as being ceremonial, but currently the Japanese Emperor has no power. This started from their surrender to the present.

Interesting. It's been my understanding that it was the bombs, or send in an undoable # of troops.

6) The U.S provoked Japan into attacking Pearl Harbor.
5) Hitler feared the French but admired the British
4) South Korea provoked North Korea into war.
3) The atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were unnecessary.
2) Surrenders, not massacres, were preferred by the Mongols.
1) The British never had a chance at winning the American Revolution.

What are your thoughts on these views?

I have researched extensively the atomic bombings of hiroshima and nagasaki, and agree. They were more than unnecessary, for they achieved 0 goals/objectives, or even were supposed to accomplish. They were racist.

I'm interested in 1 and 4 though

Interesting. It's been my understanding that it was the bombs, or send in an undoable # of troops.

No. Japan had sent put peace treaties to the US and the Soviet Union, all of which were ignored. Japan wanted to end the war months before the bombings; their military was destroyed

3rd topic is rly controversial i think that allies could defeat Japan without atomic bomb but America saw an oportunity to test a new weapon. :D
Sry for bad english

Their is no good way to test it, a nuke will do what it's intended to do; absolute destruction
