Dear Dennis,


Re:Prager 20110830-1 Dropping the Bomb


I think you responded to my messages on July 10 - 14 in quite a roundabout way.  I refuted your allegation that Nazi Germany and Japan were morally equal and that Japan still hasn't dealt with its past crime and so forth. 


This time, picking an obscure little known Aussie monk - who doesn't even appear on Wikipedia - a College teacher who claims to know a bit of history as a guest, you made again the same allegation against Japan and then strongly justified the dropping of atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  You and the Aussie explained that the bombings expedited the end of war and lessened the number of casualties.


I admire your legitimate efforts to uphold the history of your own country - the USA. That's a good thing and that is exactly I think what we need to learn from you.


But, let me tell you this.  No matter how you build up logic behind the Nuking of our cities, it doesn't change the fact that it targeted civilians.  Whether it lessened the number of casualty on your side or our side, it is still an intended killing of unarmed civilians, therefore doesn't give the act any legitimacy at all.  If you think you can legitimatize the civilian killing as a mean of ending a war quickly, why not carpet bombing a population center with toxic gas like Saddam did to the Kurds?


Also, in addition to picking such a minor person, you picked a miserable book called "Rape of Nanking" authored by a miserable woman named Iris Chang who shot herself to death for some reason.  This book is very famous for its nature of being a fake.  This book is consisted of false information, mistaken chronology, outright lie, fabricated evidence and manipulated photos.  Iris Chang's propagandist work was funded by Red China through some of hard left organizations.  At that moment, you - together with this Aussie monk - compromised your intellectual standing to a level of 9/11 conspiracy theorists.  What a shame to hear a sheer stupidity coming out of a wise man such as yourself.


You said Japan uses status as victim of Nuk attack to fool others whereas Germany does not have such status.  How ridiculous is that?  They have status to use as victim.  They were divided for more than 50 years.  But, they apologized.  And, their apology is for killing Jews, Not for waging war.  Waging war is a national right for every country, and it is stupid to say waging war is a crime.


This is my suggestion.  Why don't you ask Jonah Goldberg to take up this issue and write a book on "Japan's hidden atrocious history" which is comparable to "Liberal Fascism" in depth and volume?  Or Ann Coulter?  Or Charles Krauthammer?  Or Glenn Beck?  Or why don't you do it yourself?  Then, I will be the first one to buy the book in Amazon Kindle Store.  I would reserve the purchasing now.  Or it's maybe worth while for you to consider why prominent writers don't take up this matter. 


By the way, your show is great no matter what.  You are giving me wisdom that is vital in understanding life.  In despite the differences of opinion on this particular issue, I cannot thank you enough for what you do.  God Bless.
