I say no.

But that doesn't mean we can't express sympathy for the survivors and regret for all the war dead on both sides.

If the two atom bombs had not been dropped,another million lives would have been lost. Japan was warned about what was going to happen,they refused to end the war.
It took both bombs to end it ,and in no way should an apology be offered.

What for?

Anyone actually think they wouldn’t have used it as a strike weapon if they could. Not an end weapon like we did?

James- Do you know of the "Meeting House" section of Tokyo March 8/9, 1945 B-29 bombing raid...?

I'm glad they didn't have to drop a third bomb. I heard the next target was Osaka, where my wife's family lived.

The Emperor ended that war, after the military refused to surrender.

Ok, a day off, March 9/10, 1945

Ok, off on another account. The mission was called "Operation Meeting House", not the section of Tokyo.

I first read about it 40+ years ago in junior high in a book called The Fall of Japan. It was the first successful major fire-bombing event of Japan. Over 100,000 dead in one night but almost no Americans know about, everything centers on the two single bomb weapons 5 months later. Dead is dead, burnt to a crisp is burnt to a crisp, whether its from 1 bomb or thousands of magnesium bomblets starting your mostly wooden city on fire. People get hung up on semantics, especially when they're clueless of more history than just what a few media outlet feed them once and while...

Should the Japanese people today apologize to the US for their attack on Pearl Harbor and starting the war with the US? 2,403 people died in that attack -- 2,335 military personnel and 68 civilians. How many people died during this war as a result of Japan's decision to attack the US?

Are there any Japanese people alive today who took part in that decision to invade and bomb Pearl Harbor? Do you believe any of the Japanese people today are responsible for the attack on Pearl Harbor and the subsequent war nearly 80 years ago?

But that doesn't mean we can't express regret and pity for those who cart out such inane and useless propositions for the purpose of chastening America because it's easy sport.

You'd have made one heck of a community organizer James.

LOL,James,I have never said a bad word about you. I may not agree with you on many things--but that seems to be the case with a lot of people.

How in comparison was the Hiroshima bomb to the Beirut explosion?

About like a firecracker to a case of dynamite.Hiroshima killed over 100,00--many from radiation well after the bomb explosion.

No. Why all of a sudden do we have to apologise for everything? Whether it's slavery, women's rights or dropping a bomb what happened so many years ago has been either handled or not. Many things have brought about the end of a war and they all have been good imo. Some wars never seem to end and people keep dying, that is a reason to be apologetic.
