In the years before they attacked the United States, the Imperial Japanese had been engaged in some vicious ethnic cleansing of their own all throughout Asia. Their many war crimes consisted of mass executions, human experiments, starvation and forced labor rivaling that of the Third Reich, yet the only thing local leftist activists and local leftist politicians can find disturbing about the war, was that the United States employed two atomic bombs to help put the horror to an end.

Good job, Mayor Traber.

I’m quite sure you all realize that if the Soviet Union had developed nuclear weapons first and had used them on anybody, the number of annual remembrances of an atomic bombing of anybody, held in this town, organized by Leah Bolger and including participation of Biff Traber, would be zilch.
