If it took two ******* atomic bombs to make Japan surrender, how many years of conventional warfare do you think it would have taken to make them surrender?

>World War II ended in 1945
>Moon Landing in 1969

That's a 24 year gap. That's higher than most of this site's age (Which is important because of how ******* often this site gets a front page post reminding us that the 1990s were forever ago). How the **** do some of you miss the goddamn mark that much? **** I learned in 4th ******* grade history that "WW2=1940s, Vietnam = 1960s", and it takes 1 Google search to validate this.

The point is that the endeavor that was undertaken to reach that point was done with peaceful intentions, and not violent ones. Saying it doesn't count because somebody was getting bombed somewhere is like saying it's impossible for you to diet because somebody you know is eating cake, or that it's impossible for you to say that you're safe in your home because thousands of people are being robbed right at this very moment in theirs. They're two completely unrelated matters.

Assuming Carl Sagan really did say this, he was being a ******* cock. Assuming.

It's more akin to saying you're dieting because you're not eating cake at -your- house, just your friend's.

Enough. The nuclear bombs were bad, but the japanase army wasn't that kind with the chinese civilians, so they get what they did to others.

See i always saw it as this:
"we came in peace"
-in other words, our conquest to the moon was not to conquer, it was not to go past our limits of our planet, it was to explore, to learn, to grow. It doesn't matter what we did on earth, what mattered is that our concerns of conflict were on that planet and that planet alone, and that we would not bring it to anyone or anything else.
"for all mankind"
-or, simply, we do this so that we as a group may be able to grow and prosper from what we gain what we learn and what we do. We came in peace, not in greed or fear, we mean in to apply to all our future doings. We've already been on earth for so long, we've already had quarrels and fights, but we sure as hell won't go to someone elses' planet and start trying to drop 7.5 megatons of conventional explosives on them unless they give us a damn good reason.

it's not a congratulation to our humanity, it was a statement, a message, to future generations and foreign observers

This is like the people that try to moralize against being happy that osama bin laden died.

The point is that it wasn't done out of violence or personal gain, it was done simply to prove that the accomplishment was possible. What was happening on earth at the time wasn't really relevant, although I of course see the irony.
