    Apology question hounds Obama’s planned visit to Hiroshima

    TOKYO — Critics on both sides of the Pacific lashed out Thursday at President Obama’s plans to visit Hiroshima next week, highlighting raw emotions that remain more than seven decades after the world’s first atomic bombing.
    In Japan, leaders of a national A-bomb survivors’ group urged Obama to apologize “to the human victims” when he visits the city May 27 and to acknowledge that using the weapon was “inhumane and against international law.”

    From the article

    White House spokesman Josh Earnest has stressed that no apology would be forthcoming during Obama's visit to Japan.

    Has the Japanese government gone to Pearl Harbor?

    One of my favorite stories about the post WW2 days:

    Shortly after the U.S. occupation started, Gen. MacArthur had a visitor to his office. It was Hirohito, who wanted to apologize to the MacArthur/the U.S. for the war.

    Knowing that in Japanese culture, an apology means that the issue/grievance is put to bed, MacArthur told his secretary to tell Hirohito to scram. He refused to see him and hear the apology.

    My father was training for the invasion of Japan when they dropped the bomb. He always said dropping the bomb saved his life. The invasion of Japan would have been a blood bath.

    Won't change the fact that we dropped two atomic bombs on their ass.
    Innocent Japanese?
    I think not.

    I'm sure that you're aware that this is almost 2 week old news, right?

    And Obama is not going to apologize, but after 70 years, its now appropriate for a US POTUS to visit that site.

    Eat dicks, jackass. Try to keep up on current events.

    Too bad it isn't true.

    The US worked VERY closely with Hirohito after the war into the peacetime transition. We completely rebuilt them and their economy.

    Dave is right on this one.
    Obama won't apologize but he's not taking a victory lap over Japan in the Enola Gay.
    The Japs killed one of my grandfathers.
    We dropped the bomb.
    I say we're even.
    Get over it.

    This is a true statement.

    My pops was in the South Pacific at that time too. He actually got into Nagasaki after the bombing. He brought home a vase that is still in my folks home today.

    Just showing up means our resident simpleton is apologizing. Are you unaware of optics and diplomatic nuance Dave?

    No, I'm certainly aware. It seems that you are the one that is completely unaware of such things.

    The US has already declared to the world that this will not be an apology.

    He doesn't have to "apologize". The act of the visit does that. I'd expect nothing less from this cucked loser.
