hah yeah i agree i was a little quick on the "poor nurse" bit,

I dont know the situation that this nurse was working in, and yeah, the nurse would be this horrible sadist...

at the same time, this could be a hospital full of elderly people with glass bones who are fighting to get out of bed. Old people can be very crazy, and persistent. ...if it is understaffed, thats a major problem if you must restrain patients.

poor nurse-- I doubt it was intentional...

my wife is a nurse at a large hospital, often working with senile seniors who dont know where they are after their families just dump them off at the hospital let the nurses watch them die alone.

recently during a night shift my wife had a senior patient screaming at night pulling our her IV and bleeding all over her because she woke up and and began to freak out post surgery (didnt know where she was). my wife changed the woman's clothing, one hour later more of the same, the next hour, same.

haha Harley riders in Japan-- they are.. cute, to say the least. Living and motorcycling in Hokkaido.. we get all the honshu harley riders who come up here to, "play the part" from groups of Ojisan with their GPS equipped harley's with headsets saying "hokkaido hiroiiii naaaaaaaaa"-- to the dudes in their early 30's who "play it cool" chainsmoking American Spirits- and say "keitai daijoubuuuu" every time someone pulls out a camera. and of course, 400$ iron heart jeans-

and everyone has leather holders, for everything attached to their belts.

leather cell phone holder with indian stitched on, check- leather key holder, check- leather wallet, with chain, (with leather), check- leather pouch with native american motif, check-

**this isnt everyone, just a rant, just the majority, just the silly ones, I know a number of guys who rebuild panheads, they get nothing but respect-

yeah yeah, atomic bombings were pre-meditated, nanking was pre-meditated, whats the point of playing the innocence game with the past--?

"It was not a clear cut choice between losing many more lives through a ground war or taking out Hiroshima and Nagasaki. That seems to be what Americans are taught to believe, and it's simply untrue."

Patrick Smash: you are absolutely right about this, but the decision makers back then were playing the numbers game- given the same choice I think most people would play the numbers game as well.

the past happened how it happened-- no changing that, or wishing that a better strategy had been the course of action. when internet commenting about past wars, an argument could just as easily be made that bombing a military target for demonstration would have had the same effect as a strongly worded letter form the UN to the DPRK.

this is over 60 years ago, when it comes to supporting past decisions, to a large extent all we have are numbers. whats important is making an honest effort in understanding where the numbers come from and treating all wars as blemishes of the past that we cannot overlook (something i admit many of my fellow americans, as well as many japanese wont take the time to do).

its kind of silly discussing hypotheticals-- but thats the problem with discussing the past-

if we are going into hypotheticals, the ultimate question, if the atomic bombs were never dropped, the present would be incredibly different, and most of us would likely not be alive. knowing this, would you- given the chance prevented the bombings.

i wouldnt (hypothetically).

on a simpler side of the coin, boil it down to sheer loss of life, not what was done, or not done by the different sides. do you think that less lives (american or otherwise) would have been lost we didnt drop the bombs-? I'm sure more.

"Everything went well in those days, but I still feel Hirohito should have gone to the gallows with his fellow criminals."

Sabiwabi:

"I think Americans need a REAL history lesson, not just the usual victor's propaganda."

thats fair enough, and i agree with you, but i wouldnt consider japan's "victim propaganda" any better.

"The Japanese military murdered 10 million people in Asia, far more than Japanese who died. How Yuri Otani and others can portray the Japanese as the victims is obscene."

im pretty sure that those 10 million people purposefully stepped infront of the bullets being fired at military personal ;-)

YuiOtani: noone wants a thank-you, we just want a... "しょうがない" (if thats spelled right)

"The "people" of Japan did not want this war and perhaps it was paranoia installed by the allies for leading Japan on the path to many things."

thats just silly ;-) as an american ive never thought as my country as innocent one way or another, but i am fairly certain that my liberal schooling's history classes were less whitewashed than the history texts here--

its a big "しょうがない" (if thats spelled right, again)
