Atomic bomb survivors call on Barack Obama for official apology

A group representing Japanese survivors of US atomic bombings urged President Barack Obama to hear their stories and apologise when he visits Hiroshima next week.

So shall it be.

  • He says he won’t.

    • Daviddowntown

      Then again, he’s an inveterate liar.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      He’ll do it just to doom Hillary.

    • Don’t put it past him.

  • H

    How about they officially apologize for Emperor Hirohito?

    • Gary

      Tojo was angry after the first bomb when Hito wanted to surrender.
      He claimed that he had 2,000,000 troops on the mainland ready to die during an invasion , then there were the 3,000,000 civilians trained and armed to also die for the Emperor.
      There was also still 5000 Air Force pilots eager to do a suicide mission on top of the 2000 suicide-pilots among them that were trained to dive right into the Troop ships coming to shore via the beach landings.

      The 2 cities that were bombed were part of the war effort and supplied torpedos for the Navy that had a Sub pen just South of those cities.
      I really getting sick of leftist liberals rewriting history because in my area of Toronto each August there are posters put up that attacks the USA for dropping those bombs on innocent civilians.
      Obama just stupid enough in the field of History where he
      will apologize and maybe offer Money .

      We had Olivia Chow win her MP seat by bashing Canada for the head-tax over 100 years ago which was actually imposed on the British in exchange for China not executing the skilled workers trying to flee by boats.

      still waiting for compensation for their war crimes against our POW’s

  • Ron MacDonald

    Have the Japanese ever apologize for the atrocities they committed?

  • Daviddowntown

    And the part time drama teacher, when he’s not assaulting parliamentarians, is apologizing for the Komagata Maru. In 1914 a load of economic migrants was sent packing, as they should have been.

  • Uh, no.

    ISIS’ name in the Thirties and Forties was the Japanese Imperial army.

  • BillyHW

    Have we ever apologized for Celine Dion yet?

    • Clausewitz

      After Justin Beiber, and Nickelback we’re waiting for one more so we can do a 4 for 1 deal.

  • ontario john

    He should get Trudeau to do it. He says sorry to every body. Maybe Japan should say sorry to a long list of people they committed atrocities to, including Canadian prisoners of war.

  • Maggat

    Obamba should apologize, to all of us…..for being born.

    • ntt1

      No proof he ever was….:)

  • WalterBannon

    Dear Japan, sorry for letting you murder 2403 Americans at Pearl Harbor, not to mention all the Chinese people you murdered in your war of aggression, plus all the POW’s and others who you murdered.

    However, we are not sorry for nuking your ass instead of getting ourselves killed dealing with your crazy fight to the death military on your own ground, a battle that would have instead resulted in the genocide of japan. But if you want a mulligan let us know, and we will send in some drones to finish you off…

  • Clausewitz

    Right after you apologize for working two of my great uncles to death in your slave labour camps after being captured in Hong Kong. What’s that I hear? Crickets?

    • vimy

      My Great Uncle died in the Attack on Hong Kong and three or four other family members were taken prisoner. They survived the POW camps thankfully.
