People may be surprised to see a soldier saying this, but I do not like the idea that my military committed the two most violent acts in history. I am in the Army because I want to protect lives, not kill people. I have not studied enough to make an informed decision on Hiroshima. We may have actually saved American and Japanese lives by ending the war sooner. However, I question the necessity of Nagasaki. We showed the world what we could do and that we would do it. Why did we have to bomb another city and kill a lot of innocents?
Show me a man who is twenty and not a liberal, and I will show you a man with no heart.
Show me a man who is forty and not a conservative, and I will show you a man with no brain.
