Posted in: Do you consider the A-bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to be war crimes? See in context

Yes, with the benefit of hindsight.

But I suspect that our feelings on the matter now would be quite different to how they felt at the time, having experienced 6 years of brutal war, death, destruction, rations, etc etc. I imagine there was a great deal of justified hatred, and an eagerness to simply end the horror.

So it's hard to judge that realistically from our comfortable perspective. Different times. But i think (hope) the world has learnt enough to not let it happen again
