Rachel Lucas stirred up a real hornets nest of commentary with post, in which she describes a German emigre professor of hers claiming that the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were morally equivalent to the Holocaust .

If you read the comments section of the post, you’ll see there is tons of great info about the actual decision to drop the A-bombs on Japan .

However, at this point I’m much more alarmed by the idea that “most” Europeans could really make such a grotesque and obtuse moral miscalculation as to equate Truman’s actions with those of Hitler . Does Europe really think this way? I’m genuinely asking here. Please, any Euros or other folks who think they are well-acquainted with the European opinion on this matter and who read this site, speak up.
