    Although I watch the Daily Show fairly regularly, I rarely laugh. I don't find John Stewart to be a particularly good comedian. However, he hit my funny bone with that one!

    I post this only to show his true state of mind, in attacking a great man like Glenn Beck.

    I'm not posting this to derail or change topics to another one. If Jon Stewart wants to criticize another persons character, then I think his character is likewise open for criticism. As they say, turnabout is fair play.

    Yes, more rantings from the warped mind of Jon Stewart; a man who is so mentally twisted that he thinks President Truman should be tried as a WAR CRIMINAL for dropping the nuclear bomb(s) on Japan; even after the US gave Japan the Potsdam Declaration warning that they faced "prompt and utter destruction" if they did not surrender. I guess he would have been happy if hundreds of thousands of American died instead of people in a country that launched a sneak attack against the United States base and who aligned themselves with HITLER and the NAZIS beforehand.

    This man is SICK, and I post this to illustrate how mentally ill he really is. Sure, you might not agree with the actions of the US; but to call a sitting president a WAR CRIMINAL for it. Wow, his mental state is really in question to me.

    Jon makes a great point. Why didn't we fire a warning shot first? (Into the ocean)

    Did someone seriously just justify using nuclear weapons?

    What the **** kind of world do we live in?

    If I didn't live in Hawaii and feel disconnected from the U.S. just enough to get me by I would be trying emigrate somewhere else.

    Sad.

    We told them that they would be destroyed if they did not surrender. We did not fire a warning shot for the same reason they didn't not fire a warning torpedo when they did a sneak attack against the United States or or launch warning 'fire' ballons against the west coast of the US. Its called the element of surprise.

    However, we did warn them: We said surrender or "face prompt and utter destruction", as per the Potsdam Declaration. Those who say we did not warn Japan of "prompt and utter destruction", are either lying or ignorant of basic historical facts.

    Fact: They did not surrender, and we followed through with the Potsdam Declaration that was communicated to them beforehand.

    The point: to call a President a WAR CRIMINAL, not just disagreeing, but calling Truman a WAR CRIMINAL, for attacking Japan after warnings of "utter destruction" w/o surrender Well, I question his mental state. Moreover, need I remind you that Japan was partners with Hitler and the Nazis.

    Stewart is the Tickle-Me-Elmo of the left; he has no original comedy so he satirizes others, primarily those of the right, giving liberal leftists joy through his lame attempts at humor.

    Those on the right need no Stewart stooges for comedy; we just laugh at the original morons like Obama, Pelosi, and Reid. That's high comedy for us! Sheer idiocy of the Obama, Pelosi, and Reid type needs no amplification.

    As opposed to simply saying a sitting President is a SOCIALIST hell-bent on destroying the country?

    Hmmm.....

    Hundreds of thousands of innocent Japanese died when there were military targets that could have been used to demonstrate the weapons' effectiveness. The idea of Truman having committed war crimes is a perfectly valid opinion to hold taking the evidence into account, even if you disagree with that assessment. Interesting how you dismiss it though. Did you froth at the mouth whilst posting that?

    And two days later he admitted it was a stupid thing to say and said he really didn't think Truman was a war criminal.

    Really? I thought Beck was your comedy stooge. He himself admits he is a rodeo clown.

    You can really tell when the conservatives buttons are pushed in posts like this. All their responses sound like they've popped a vein and are foaming at the mouth :p

    So you're equating our bombing of Japan with their attack on Pearl Harbor? Yet you don't think it was criminal? Way to do some mind gymnastics. And how did we have the element of surprise when we dropped the second bomb?

    I know you're not the best debater, but if you could try your best to rebut this I would like to continue the conversation.

    So, no - I'm not equating just their sneak attack aganist Pearl.

    Japan did a lot more than Pearl Harbor. We can look at the forced death marches of American captured. How about the millions of Chinese killed by Japan; while the total number murdered by Japan is not know, 10,000,000 to 20,000,000 is a common guesstimate. Finally, we can look at their alliance with pure evil (IMHO) with Hitler and Nazi Germany.

    You also seem to also forget the Potsdam Deceleration; which they REJECTED a few weeks before the attack. We warned Japan that they faced "prompt and utter destruction" if they did not give us a complete surrender.

    I'm puzzled by your last comment about "element of surprise". The US waited for dropping the second bomb to see if they would accept the Potsdam Declaration. If we were out to just kill them for grins, we would have bombed two cities at the same time. However, we did not. We waited after the first bomb, and they still did not surrender. I think the fact that we waited two days shows we were not out for blood. If we were, the better way would be to bomb two cities at the same time to keep the element of surprise.

    In my mind, President Truman had to give Japan a bloody nose to make them stop; something that does not make him a war criminal (according to Jon Stewart). If it was just for blood, we would have not given them a final chance w/ the Potsdam, we would have bombed two cities at the same time, and them we would have continued other bombing methods after the nuclear attack (e.g. fire bombing and high explosives).

    Once they surrendered, all fighting stopped. We did not rape and pillage Japan; quite the opposite, we helped them make a new Constitution and let them self govern soon after the war ended. Hardly the action of a War Criminal.

    Here is my final point: Japans actions against the United States (where 100,000 were killed), actions against China and Korea (where 10,000,000 - 20,000,000+ were killed) , and their alliance with Hitler/Nazi Germany in toto made total surrender the only acceptable outcome. Notice, I did not say their actions equated to the use of atomic bombs; it was their rejection of the Allies terms (US, China, ect...) that lead to this. If we had used them on a country that had already gave a complete surrender, then that would be criminal in my opinion. However, that is not what happened because we gave them a final chance and they rejected it.. Moreover, once they accepted the Potsdam Declaration; we stopped bombing them with conventional weapons. Look at President Truman actions BEFORE and AFTER the two atomic bombs, and tell me they were the actions of a War Criminal, according to Jon Stewart.
