Victor Davis Hanson comments on Hiroshima and Nagasaki

The truth, as we are reminded so often in this present conflict, is that usually in war there are no good alternatives, and leaders must select between a very bad and even worse choice. Hiroshima was the most awful option imaginable, but the other scenarios would have probably turned out even worse.

Tom...

This is gibberish:

"Hiroshima was the most awful option imaginable, but the other scenarios would have probably turned out even worse."

If Hanson can imagine worse scenarios, then by definition, Hiroshima was not the most awful option imaginable.

And this:

"The Imperial Japanese army routinely butchered civilians abroad..."

Really? They cut people up for meat?
