The problem is ... you're wrong. I did not celebrate the deaths of human beings. I've told this story before on here -- a friend had access to a tape from the first gulf war. In the video a helicopter took out several men as they were standing around a vehicle. At the time I thought it was cool ... then it hit me, these men were actually living human beings .. this was not a movie -- there were real lives involved. I've not looked at war the same since.
However, you are right about Hiroshima and Nagasaki. I think Truman did the right thing -- he looked at the big picture. He saved millions of lives by ending the war. Japan was still arrogant and thought he could win the war.
Personally, rareboy, I don't think you'll ever understand the need for a strong military in defense to stop wars. You think most people who are in the military want war -- they don't -- they want to stop wars, they understand that a strong military is the most important way to stop new wars.
Drones on the outset seem like a great idea -- clean surgical strikes to take out the bad guy. However, the explosion in their use and the many new forms they are taking -- even stealth drones now will cause escalation of war and use by terrorists, crooks, and rouge nations.
Quite frankly I don't understand why liberals who say they hate war say they approve of them ... I even see a joke about them.
Think where drones will be in 5 years.
