ANOTHER year, another pointless tea light float by a handful of CND people.

Must have been a quiet week for them to get half a page. No fluffy dog photos last week?

Why didn't their banner say remember Tokyo? The Americans fire bombed Tokyo on the night of March 9-10, the single deadliest air raid in history with a greater area of fire damage and loss of life than either of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima or Nagasaki!

Salisbury Journal:

Can CND deny that the dropping of the two bombs saved the lives of three million Japanese and one million Americans, most of them civilians before the war!

Perhaps a spokesman, or woman could tell me how many nuclear bombs have been used on civilians since Nagasaki?

I think the answer is nil and that is why it is such a brilliant deterrent. At the same time millions have been killed by non nuclear munitions.
