Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, August 08, 2017

On August 6, 1945, the U.S. dropped atomic bombs on the Japanese city of Hiroshima, following up three days later with another bomb on Nagasaki. ... Until recently, few photographs of the run up to the attacks were available. Declassified pictures shed light on the preparations for the bombings -- the first and only wartime nuclear bombings in history. While seemingly mundane, these photos show us what it was like to prepare for one of the most important moments in modern history.

Who are you kidding? They already have forgotten. I hear the stupid make comments all the time about how we should nuke this or that. North Korea, Afghanistan, Iran, and sorry man but yes Pakistan. Those comments come from the same types that still support Trump.

but yes Pakistan

They'll have better luck if they can point out North Korea/Afghanistan/Iran/Pakistan on a map. Most Americans can't even point out Mexico.

You gotta know where to send those nukes. Will probably end up nuking Trump Tower instead....

Look how fit everyone looks in the photos. Get a bunch of Navy chiefs or AF tech sergeants to take off their shirts these days and it looks like a "Before" photo for a Jenny Craig ad.

I wonder how many of the people in this film died prematurely from cancer. Don't expect our Government to tell us.
