CBS poll: Plurality of Americans now disapprove of decision to use the atomic bomb on Japan - Hot Air
This is the Jon Stewartization of intelligent discussion. Mr. Stewart knows nothing about a subject but this has never limited his willingness to beclown himself by speaking out, loudly.
More below the fold.
When the issue if far distant, it is easy to get people to accept the immoral position, until the rubber actually meets the road, then they become serious, and address issues seriously. Continuing a war which will likely cause the death of millions of the enemy and hundreds of thousands or perhaps millions of American, has a way of crystalizing thought.
What this really shows is the inane, triviality of mentation which exists among progressives, and our media betters. These are the people who constantly support horrifying ideas, like the idea that it is better to kill millions with chemical high explosive bombs then it is to kill 10 orders of magnitude fewer with atomic or nuclear bombs.
When an issue is not ripe, the inane chattering class sound more authoritative. They are not, but the mind is pulled toward more serious considerations. This causes weak analysis, acritical thinking, and fuzzy logic, which results in silly poll results like this one.
