Pilot of the Enola Gay is a Sigma Nu.
Heard him speak at College of Chapters in 2009. A true American hero.
All I can say is that I’m thankful there are men like this that stand up against the evil of the world and risk their lives to save others
These literally Saved Western Civilization. These are men the Founding Father would gratefully shake hands with.
Saving the world in khakis and four-inch inseams. TFM
Completely wrong. The bombs didn’t end the war, you asshole.
Yes they did.
God Bless America, Undefeated World War Champs
Did you make that up on your own?
I had the good fortune of meeting BG Paul Tibbets. He was a true gentleman.
America ! and all, but controversial move here, TFM.
As a U.S. historian with heavy reading and training on WWII and atomic weapons, you are a fucking idiot BigWillieWhiskey.
1) The bombs didn’t do anything but kill people. FACT. Japan did not surrender because of them. They surrendered for fear of the Manchurian invasion by the Soviets.
2) The U.S. opened up the nuclear age, which we now must fear on a daily basis.
3) If stupid fucking Truman would have not been such a klutz and altered LBJ’s unconditional surrender policy, the bombs would not have been necessary.
Celebrating the senseless death of thousands of humans, and years of suffering by survivors (hibakusha), is disgusting and pathetic.
You’re a fucking idiot. I guess they don’t have U.S. history at your school. Here’s a big FUCK YOU to someone who celebrates death.
Your so-called “facts” were disproven in the 70s by Zegeinthaler and Bates who were granted access to the minutes of Japan’s Imperial War Cabinet. The discussions clearly indicated that the surrender was a direct result of a wish to prevent further destruction by the new bombs. A secondary inducement was to stop the firebombing that had already decimated most cities. The “Russian Invasion” thesis is so laughable that no serious historian even bothers to float it out there anymore. And, yeah, we opened up the nuclear age. What of it? Let the rest of the world suck our Atomic Dick.
I meant FDR, of course. Not LBJ.
The simple solution: that fucking big pussy momma’s boy Truman could have allowed Hirohito to remain as a figurehead. War over.
Instead, since he was an idiot and used as a pawn in politics, he refused to alter FDR’s “unconditional surrender” terms.
You’re not gonna be well liked around here.
Not sure what history book they use in your high school, but Hirohito DID remain emperor until he died in the 80s.
they were atomic bombs, not nukes, bud
Do some research Wilder, both atomic and hydrogen bombs are nukes
Technically, the hydrogen bomb is Thermonuclear.
