The Christian US fire-bombed Tokyo and dropped two atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki....some 300,000 women and children were killed and thousands burned and maimed and plagued with birth defects to this day......vs Muslims chopping heads, far far less heads.
The excuse the US gave for the atom bombs was that they wanted to save US soldiers' lives.....say what? Soldiers are SUPPOSED to die in wars, not their children and wives but the soldiers themselves.....this rationale stinks of what the US Cavalry did when they lured the men out of the village to massacre the women and children, no doubt to "spare" American soldiers' lives.
But people who don't have armies and uniforms and mass weapons of destruction they MUST NOT hurt civilians......huh?
The real reason for the atom bombs was to test the effects on civilians and, as important, show the USSR what we had and how willing we were to use it to "save lives", as a way to scare them off...had nothing to do with soldiers' lives
