So where is the subjectivity here? Incinerating kids who know nothing of warfare is wrong. Nonetheless, I can't fault Truman for dropping the Bomb."Killing Japanese didn't bother me very much at that time... I suppose if I had lost the war, I would have been tried as a war criminal.... Every soldier thinks something of the moral aspects of what he is doing. But all war is immoral and if you let that bother you, you're not a good soldier."
