Aug. 6 is here. No doubt, activists will hold a vigil at the “Chain Reaction” sculpture for the victims of the Hiroshima bombing. Too bad they can’t seem to care much about the victims of the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor.

That is what started the war, the atomic bomb ended it by making an invasion of Japan unnecessary. That saved lives in Japan, but it saved American lives. That is what matters. They can call the sculpture “Chain Reaction” if they want. I’ll call it “Victory” instead.
