ONE OF THE FAVORITE anti-American lies of the Left is that the atomic bomb attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were uniquely barbaric, as if the rest of World War II was fought according to the Marquess of Queensberry rules (“How the Bomb Was Spun,” 8/18). This lie is nothing but a pretext for nuclear disarmament propaganda and leftist anti-American hate. Bear in mind that almost all of the nuclear disarmament organizations used to be communist fronts.

Besides, Japan had its own atomic bomb project, which was years ahead of Germany’s and only months behind ours, and Japan would have nuked us without hesitation. The 50 years of silence about Japan’s atomic bomb project is one of history’s greatest cover-ups.
