    You mean you already lost and now you're lying.
    Anyone that takes a quick look through that thread will realize that I was the one that provided overwhelming evidence to support my case whereas you simply resorted to statements like this.

    Hiroshima killed over a hundred thousand people. That's a pretty high bar on the brutality scale to top.

    As for necessary....the only thing "necessary" about war is winning. Everything else is the subject of endless (and mostly meaningless) debate.

    Both are nessacary, torture should be an option in certain circumstances.

    For anyone interested, the discussion started with this post of mine and ended with the one linked previously.

    Re: Hiroshima Bombing vs. Torture

    I don't see the connection between torture and exterminating an entire population...

    am I missing something?

    The entire population of Hiroshima was not exterminated.

    Fine. You caught my exaggeration.

    Only 30% of population immediately and circa 200,000 in the after math.

    And so, it took two boimbs to force the surrender, because...?

    Dropping the bombs saved American and Japanese lives. That's what matters.

    It didn't take two bombs to force the surrender, as the Japanese were willing to surrender before the bombs were dropped, as I've already outlined in the other thread and backed up with substantial evidence.
