    Not just our two nearest neighbours, but 13% of Americans clearly see their own country menacing for peace.

    However, a plurality of people polled in several officially American-allied nations also rated the United States as dangerous. Thirty-seven percent of Mexicans and 17 percent of Canadians view their neighboring country with suspicion on the world stage. A surprising 13 percent of American respondents rated their own nation the biggest threat to world peace as well.

    I think the former. Or perhaps he was questioning the relevance of the poll in question?

    I do not recall hearing that the US was intentionally targeting and killing civilians, anywhere. And if we did/are, we shouldn't have/shouldn't.
    Sorry, but they were both targeted.

    How in the hell could it not be relevant that over NK, Iran, Syria, Russia and China, the world fears US aggression as an impediment to world peace. I mean I can understand why you'd like to hide from such findings, but it most certainly is relevant.

    66k people from 65 countries do not the world make.

    What was the poll about and how were you using it. That's what I meant by relevance - I didn't actually look at it except in passing, so I have no idea whether it actually was or not.

    Stop assuming I'm saying **** that I'm not.

    Indeed so. That was a different type of war though...

    I thought we were talking more modern times.

    Those were industrial cities. One had a submarine factory and the other a chemical weapons factory. Both were in full production. It doesn't take a genius to see how those two things could be used to continue Japan's war effort. If the intent was to kill civilians, far more deaths could have been incurred.

    The bombs were necessary, and merciful for both the US and Japanese. An invasion of the mainland would have killed 10x as many Japanese and perhaps half a million Americans.

    Learn some history.

    That's your defense for targeting civilians? Interesting.
