Just thinking you might have left out a bit more info on this ..? Eg

Ended WW2
Saved in the long run many more than were killed
Defeated an abhorrent murderous empire

factored in…. The word “deranged” might apply to those who would advise against its use.

They were the good guys. And thank God they grasped the nettle. What would you have rather had. ? Hand to hand fighting through all the archipelago, vicious guérilla style wars of attrition on the main islands. Maybe hundred of thousands killed.
And the very fact that they and other good guys have them has kept the peace for some
time now. Hopefully it continues

"Kept the peace"..... Of course, they've certainly done lots of that.

Well. The alternative I suspect would have been worse. And so we have relative peace. A subjective view of course. More so than our parents, grandparents or great grandparents enjoyed however. Then again no amount of arguing the historical truth will persuade the “woke” generation otherwise.

This is a good indicator of how much the company care for staff and their families.
Seriously, after the KA disgrace you are just now becoming aware of how CX care for their staff and their families.

Never mind that they also showed how horrific the results of a nuclear war would be, which undoubtedly prevented war in the sixties which would have destroyed the planet.

in retrospect, maybe they were the bad guys🤔
