That is a disturbing picture, but it was war. I visited Tokyo recently and it is a beautiful city. Japanese people were very freindly. I hope to go back one day

"Tough pooopy.. Did you see what those vile scumbags did to others? They got less than they deserved" Yeah, they themselves committed atrocities in China, and elsewhere in the Pacific. There is absolutely no excuse for that. But, an eye-for-an-eye attitude will only doom us to go through this kind of tragedy again and again. Who are you to say what justice is? Americans taking skull trophies, LeMay's Tokyo bombing would have been seen as war crimes/crimes against humanity had the Japanese been the one's to dispense victor's justice. You also refer to 'those' - as if all Japanese, civilians included, were some kind of homogenous group that all thought about the war the same way. There would have been plenty in those 100,000 that thought the war was pointless, but were too afraid to speak out. Your comment shows nothing more than sheer ignorance.
