Don't worry, no risk for me to forget about it. Part of my family died because of WW2 and my gdfather has worked against his will for German troops.
Stevens Point started a thread to remember Hiroshima and Nagasaki and Choupi and esther immediately assumed this was another anti-American thread. Typical.
Do you know me? Who are you to assume that I've thought it was an anti-US thread? Is it anti-American to think that, 60 years after what the US pilots have done over Hiroshima and Nagasaki, it is totally irrelevant to still consider heroic what they have done, now that they're old enough to understand what was really going on, now that they aren't obeying anymore?
Next time you try to judge me, because that's what you've done, try to know what you're actually talking about, that will help sound less ridiculous!
