What If Japan Had Developed the Atomic Bomb Before America?

By John W. Lillpop

There he goes again.

Never missing an opportunity to apologize for, or demean, America, President Barack Obama has decided to send an envoy to commemorate the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima 65 years ago tomorrow, August 6.

As reported at, in part:

“Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday that US President Barack Obama "thought it appropriate" to recognize Japan's atomic bomb anniversary as he wants to rid the world of nuclear arms.

“The United States, 65 years after a mushroom cloud rose over Hiroshima, will for the first time send an envoy this Friday to commemorate the bombing that rang in the nuclear age.

"President Obama is very committed to working toward a world without nuclear weapons," even if he sees it as a "long-term goal," Clinton told reporters when asked for comment on the anniversary.

"I think that the Obama administration and President Obama himself believe that it would be appropriate for us to recognize this anniversary and has proceeded to do so," she said.”

Like Osama bin Laden, that other world famous anti-American Muslim lunatic,Obama sees all issues through his “I hate America” eyes.

A question for the president seems appropriate: If the nation of Japan had won the race to develop the A-bomb, would the Japanese have refused to use the weapon against America out of humanitarian concern?

Would Emperor Hirohito have chosen to lose the war if necessary in order to avoid using the bomb on America?

Of course the question is silly. But it serves to point out the childish perspective of our community organizer who has no business being Commander-in-Chief.
