Yesterday Was Pearl Harbor Day

Yesterday was Pearl Harbor Day, so what did the National Geographic Channel and The Weather Channel run shows on? The U.S. dropping bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Do they hate America or are they just stupid and inconsiderate to the hundreds of thousands of Americans who died freeing the Pacific from Japanese imperialism and Nazi Germany?

You have got to be kidding me. Fools.
Wait. I'm confused. On the day commemorating the events for which the war began for the USA, they ran shows dedicated to exploring the events with which the USA sucessfully won the war.

And this is a stupid, inconsiderate, America-hating thing?

Because I took it as: "Hey, y'all remember Pearl Harbor? Yeah. How'd that work out for ya?"
Don't give my your stupid liberal pablum. Let's just focus on how Americans killed thousands of Japanese rather than the tyrannical actions of the Japanese that lead to Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Did you know one man survived both blasts?
Don't be fooled by all the "look at how much suffering this caused" stuff. It says a lot of positive things about us that, when we talk about incinerating enemy cities from afar, we do it with compassion.

We dropped The Bombs and won the war. We don't have to talk smack about it and cheapen what happened.

I mean, there really are only two ways you can parade doctors in front of the cameras to describe the details of radiation burns and sickness that befall the civilians of nations that step to us. And the "gosh, that was horrible, I hope we never have to do that again" line is a much more eloquent way to say "this is what happens when you step to us."

Running the shows on the Day of Infamy? That's nothing short of sublime. Cause, meet effect.
