To win a new empire, two nuclear bombs were dropped by presidential decree, two Japanese cities laid waste. More than 100,000 lives taken by the initial blasts. Some instantly vaporized into shadows. Some dying in agony, eyes melted, flesh hanging like used wallpaper. Many thousands more were slowly killed by the radioactive poison that devoured from within. The president who gave the order, Truman, never regretted his decision. Looking back on that infamous moment, we can only ask, who would ever dare commit such a crime again?" Over the image of George W. Bush is "They Would/ "U.S. Presidnet G.W. Bush refused on Tuesday to rule out nuclear strikes against Iran if diplomacy failes to curb the islamic Republic's atomic ambitions.
