Yes, the atomic bombings may have seemed like a horrendous thing to do when all the other factors are taken out, but once you put the factors in it seems justified to me, if only a little bit.
I'm sorry for the slight hijack of the post.
Anyway, I don't care what these people did, it wasn't justified in my opinion. We shouldn't base our acts on others peoples acts. Stooping to their level isn't the solution.
I'm sure the terrorists attacked us on 9-11 fully believing their actions were justified.
