Anticipation builds over if Obama will visit Hiroshima

[AA.TR] Question remains whether US president’s Japan trip will see him visit city where US dropped atomic bomb during World War II
You know he's going. You know what he's gonna do.

#1  As usual, Hussein will be anti-American, just as much or more so than anyone on the left.

The nukes broke the back of an evil fanaticism that if nukes had not been put to use the main land war would have cost more lives than those it took out in 'Roshima and 'Saki.

#2  Just think of the alternative. In what could have been the closing days of WWII, Champ uses Special Forces to attempt to eliminate the Emperor and Senior Leadership of Japanese forces.

Like Korea, we'd still be at it today and at what cost.

#3  You're kidding Besoeker---Obama would, unconditionally, surrender after Pearl Harbor.

#4  Go for it baby. Then watch as your replacements with full abandon and glee will visit everyone of your smoldering acts for years to come, passing judgement upon you as you have on others. And avoid Manila on your tour, cause it will only demonstrate you're just another red diaper baby indoctrinated in the Hate America First doctrine.

#5  As the end of his power nears, more and more of the charade stops. Obama detests the nation that elected him, has been a sham since early teens, never stops being amazed that he dupes people so easily, and in the end, cannot face the fraud he knows he has been all his life. Expect more outrageous things, and once he leave office, the efforts to retain the public spotlight will eventually become pathetic. What a tragic and comedic proof that a vast number of the people who reside here are useful idiots and fellow travelers, and the looting of the public purse looms even further when the hildabeest settles in.

#6  "The development and use of nuclear weapons is a stain on humanity...which is why I paved the way for Iran to have nuclear weapons."

#7  It's not the going we mind so much as that he keeps coming back.

#8  Great sci-fi premise: "Yes, Mr. President, you are going to Hiroshima. Unfortunately your time pod is set for 10 minutes before the bomb drops..."
