Pope Francis Condemns ‘Catastrophic
Bombing’ of Nagasaki and Hiroshima

Original Article

Pope Francis has condemned the “evil” bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima, calling the attacks a “tragic episode in human history.” “I will soon visit Nagasaki and Hiroshima, where I will offer prayers for the victims of the catastrophic bombing of these two cities, and echo your own prophetic calls for nuclear disarmament,” the pope told an assembly of the nation’s bishops in Tokyo Saturday evening, shortly after his arrival in the country. “I wish to meet those who still bear the wounds of this tragic episode in human history, as well as the victims of the triple disaster,” he said. “Their continued sufferings

They could have saved themselves a lot of pain if they wouldn’t have attacked in the first place.

The idiot pope then went on to say, "It would have been better for the allies to mount an attack onto the mainland of Japan, costing the lives of millions of soldiers and tens of millions of Japanese civilians."

Francis' moral compass is broken, if it ever had one that is. There were no "victims" is either of those two cities because of the U.S. If anyone is to blame, then blame the Japanese culture. Since Francis is aware of the 10 commandments, then is is breaking the 9th commandment knowingly (bearing false witness), disqualifying him from holding any position in the leadership in the church.

Does Frank find anything catastrophic about December 7, 1941 or were they just some people flying Mitsubishi A6Ms around Hawaii? This man has proven himself unfit to be Pope over and over. Why does he still hold the office?

Well...the Japanese Imperial army invaded Manchuria, China, the countries of IndoChina, the Philippines, and some Pacific Islands in the 1930s and '40s. Those invasions left over 19 million people dead. Did his honor mention that?

The alternative was the invasion of Japan. Consider the casualties and the loss of Japanese and American lives. It is sad there had to be a war at all. The Truman administration weighed the benefits and the burdens of the land invasion. The Pope lives in the clouds. This is the real world.

He might want to read up a little on the rape of Nanking, Pearl Harbor, the vivisection of POWs and the Bataan Death March. The Japanese got what they deserved, and they richly deserved what they got. For the record, remember that it took TWO nuclear weapons three days apart to force their surrender, and even then some officers tried to mount a coup to overthrow the government and continue fighting the allies.

Ultimately those two bombings killed thousands and convinced the Japanese to surrender. MacArthur planed to invade, through the Southern islands. Trouble is, the Japanese had cracked our military code. MacArthur didn't care. He wanted the photo ops of wading through the surf to a conquered Japan for his political ambitions. Estimates are, had he invaded casualties would have been in the tens of millions with a million U.S. casualties, Sometimes you need to unleash an unthinkable weapon to avoid even worse situations. The Pope is a fool and has constantly been a disaster for the Church. He is very nearly certifiable, which is exactly what his Cardinals want.

Two things for you Francis. 1) The Japanese were ready to fight to the last man, woman, and child. They were training civilians to resist US troops. Their kamikazes weren't relenting and the military wasn't surrendering. By showing them we now had nukes they could no longer hope to inflict losses so great it would discourage an invasion. Or we could have just blockaded them, continued a bombing campaign, and starved out the whole country. 2) I seem to recall that the Catholic Church aligned itself with the Facists at the beginning of the war. They were very pro-Mussolini, very anti-Jew. I'm a Catholic and I think that before Francis throws stones at the US, having been forced to use a weapon that ended the war more humanely than a bloodstorm of an invasion, he should reconcile that the Church too has blood on its hands and picked the wrong side in WWII. We ended up liberating Vatican City, too, Francis. And you are not the Pope that John Paul II was and you never will be.

We know the Japanese who got killed in Hiroshima and such went to Hell (except the Catholic ones). The Muslims are also going to Hell next to the Buddhists. Hindus, oh please. Baptize away Frank.

#16, I came here to say exactly that. We tend to take pity on the vanquished. In this case, the Japanese are not the innocent victims the Pope seems to think they are. And, by all measures, we--America and Japan--have moved past the past, one of the beauties and strengths of America. What's the point of picking at old wounds?

Prayers for the dead are worthless. Would this useless Pope "offer prayers" for the German victims of the Dresden firebombing in WWII? Or the mass slaughter of people under atheistic Communism? How about "offering prayers" for the thousands of Jews killed under Catholicism during the Spanish Inquisition, and the indigenous people of Mexico and Central America under Catholic Spain?

A personal note: My father was in the 4th Marine Division at Iwo Jima. They were already beginning to ramp up to invade Mainland Japan when the bomb was dropped. Everyone knew that the Invasion would be house-to-house, and millions would have died. I know, with absolute certainty, that I would not exist, except for those bombs.

So sayeth the leader of an organization who initiated the inquisition and over a period of 250 years slaughtered, murdered and tortured millions. The very same "church" that launched the crusades, practiced "kill a Jew for Jesus" and plunged the civilized work I to 600 years of the dark ages. The blood of tens of millions spilled at the hands of a church who now condemns the US for dropping the atomic bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, thus ending the deadliest war in human history. To the Pope I say "Bite me, and drop dead you quisling moron".

#19, with all due respect, you seem to know little about MacArthur. He wasn't aware of the atomic bomb until the last minute. Without the bombs, please offer what else we could do to stop the Japanese. Yes, he could be a showman. He was also brilliant; even his detractors would admit that. There was virtually no other choice to be the military governor in Japan after the war.

We have not quite used up all the Purple Heart medals that were made in anticipation of the gigantic carnage that was going to be the Invasion of Japan. Think of that. In the ensuing 74 years we haven't had as many wounded and killed in ALL our wars, including Korea and Vietnam, and all the sandbox wars to use up the PHs that we expected to need for maybe 4-6 months of war in Japan. And believe that we would have killed 10 Japanese for every American who died or was wounded.

A farrago of childish platitudes served up by Bergoglio, with some selective history mixed in. Of course it was a "tragic episode in human history" - made necessary by the truculence of the Japanese warlords, not the mean old white devils in the west. And how can use of a nuclear weapon per se be immoral if refusal to use it will set the combatants on a course which will result in even far greater suffering and death? This Pope is not a serious thinker. We can all thank God that he or someone else of his stripe was not sitting in Harry Truman's chair when he had to make the single most momentous decision in American history.

This idiot is no Pope. He represents Satan. The Church had been infliltrated by evil for decades now. There was even a ritual praising Satan at the Vatican not long ago. I heard part of it on a video. All the good men have been flushed out of the hierarchy. Benedict was the last true Pope. This communist Francis is evil, as are those who pushed out Benedict and brought in Francis. By the way, does this fool have any idea that the Japanese had planned a major biological attack on San Diego? They surrendered right before the planned date of attack, which only happened because we bombed them. And, we warned Japan before we dropped the bombs. They chose to disregard the warnings.

Poster 41: Mac Arthur was nothing without the military team under him. They, unsung, won the victories he was accredited for. He was in my opinion, and my father's opinion (who fought in WWII), a grand-standing dolt. Politics came first with that man like other great military idiots, such as Britain's Montgomery, and France's DeGaul, or further back in U.S. history, Custer and McClelland. The bomb had nothing to do with it. He even had been told the Japanese might have broken our military code. He HAD been informed of the estimated casualties of such an operation. But he didn't care. He wanted the political optics of an invasion and a 'I have returned" moment. Later, in Korea, he had to be removed from command. He was a 'Frank Burns' at the command level.

Elizabeth Warren, one of the Democratic frontrunners for president, has problems with black voters, and one of them is persistent lying. According to the Washington Free Beacon: Warren denied sending her children to private schools, despite the fact that she sent her son to an elite private school. Confronted with a group of angry black parents who oppose her anti-charter schools stance, she tried to feed them a cock-and-bull story about how her own kids went to public schools instead of private ones, so the woman should be happy.

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic — Colombia’s ambassador in Washington was embarrassed Wednesday by publication of a recording in which he trashes the State Department as a feckless institution subjugated to the whims of the White House. The Colombian newspaper Publimetro posted the recording of a 24-minute conversation between Ambassador Francisco Santos and Colombia’s foreign minister-designate, Claudia Blum. The paper said the private conversation took place last week at a Washington cafe and was recorded by a third person it did not identify. In the conversation, Santos complains that the State Department has lost the muscle as a driver of U.S. policy

After revealing he was Trump impeachment whistleblower Eric Ciaramella's chatty human water cooler, White House National Security aide Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman sought to get some respect from Rep. Devin Nunes. Here was the exchange: "Mr. Vindman, you testified in your deposition that you did not know the whistleblower," Nunes stated. "Ranking member, it's Lieutenant Colonel Vindman, please," the witness responded. Nunes corrected himself and repeated the statement, which followed questions regarding who Vindman had spoken with about Trump's phone call. More than once, Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., interjected to advise Vindman that the purpose of the hearing was not to expose the identity of the whistleblower, who is afforded legal protection.

Here's Biden on Twitter: The obnoxious tweet was in response to Trump's pardon of these troops in the past week, described well by PJMedia's Matt Margolis: Last week, President Trump granted full pardons for Army First Lt. Clint Lorance and Army Maj. Mathew Golsteyn, who’d been accused of war crimes. Lorance had served six years of a 19-year sentence, and Golsteyn was facing trial for killing

Top officials in the US Navy threatened to resign or be fired should President Trump follow through with an order to keep disgraced Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher in the service, The New York Times reported. The threats from Navy Secretary Richard Spencer and Rear Adm. Collin Green, who leads the SEALs, left the Department of Defense scrambling for a compromise, the paper reported. Spencer says Gallagher should be judged by his peers. (Snip) Gallagher was convicted in July of illegally posing with the dead body of an ISIS fighter. The decision resulted in a rank and pay-grade demotion — and potentially the loss of his Navy SEALs Trident Pin.

In an interview with Reason’s Nick Gillespie on Friday, Fox News analyst Andrew Napolitano said there was “overwhelming” evidence of impeachable actions by President Donald Trump. Napolitano said, “The Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have unearthed enough evidence, in my opinion, to justify about three or four articles of impeachment against the president. We have to start this conversation by underscoring the fact that impeachment is not legal, it is political. Its only Constitutional base is treason, bribery, or other hard crimes and misdemeanors.”

Ginsburg checked in to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore on Friday. "She was initially evaluated at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C. before being transferred to Johns Hopkins Hospital for further evaluation and treatment of any possible infection," the court said in an earlier statement, which noted that Ginsburg's symptoms abated after she received intravenous antibiotics and fluids. The hospital stay is the latest in a

On Friday, police showed up to a young man’s workplace and tried to arrest him over social media posts reported to them by an old army buddy of the 28-year-old Afghanistan veteran. This man, known as Alex and popular on Instagram under the handle of WhiskeyWarrior556, slipped out of the back door, hurried home to check on his family where he found out police had already forced themselves into his home and confiscated his legal firearms after threatening his wife with calling child protective services to remove her newborn child.

Impeachment Is Destroying Democrats 29 replies

The goal of the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and other Democratic Party leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives has been to use the impeachment inquiry to destroy President Donald Trump. They hope to impeach him, followed by conviction and removal from the U.S. Senate. Otherwise, they believe he will be so politically damaged that he will resign before the next election. Ironically, the exact opposite political result is occurring. The past two weeks, the nation was subjected to partisan impeachment hearings orchestrated by House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA). The process has been unfair to not only House Republicans but also to the target of their investigation, President Trump.

Three years after outsider Donald Trump blew up the political world with his implausible victory over the consummate insider, Hillary Clinton, many establishment Republicans still don’t get it. From their elite cocoon, they continue to indulge the hauteur that put off ordinary voters who had grown tired of a fossilized political class that serially ignored their interests, and seemed more concerned with their own insider perks and privilege, rather than in repairing the damage that decades of bipartisan progressive technocracy had inflicted on the Constitutional order. The grande dame of the disgruntled NeverTrump Republicans has been the Wall Street Journal’s Peggy Noonan, whose columns on Trump

Radical-left filmmaker Michael Moore said on an MSNBC panel discussion after the Democratic debate that his views now represent the "center" and "mainstream" of the Democratic Party. He also said that “The majority of Americans agree with me and Bernie on all the issues," which makes the "center" of the Democratic Party somewhere to the left of Karl Marx. "Bernie" is, of course, Senator Bernie Sanders, an avowed socialist and one of the top contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination. Democrats should probably tell Moore to
