  1. Truman was the man

  2. Harry S. Truman was a great president.

  3. There are memos from Admirals that document this.

  4. “The US could have prevented from attacking them if they wanted to”.

    What are you talking about specifically?

  5. The US could have prevented Japan from attacking them if they wanted to. The fact that you are unaware of this shows me that you are unworthy of a serious response from me.

  8. Yes so you had to admit defeat. I like the way you say it. Good job!

  9. No it means I refuse to argue with someone who is severely uneducated.

  10. what does that mean? That you can’t take the cold-hard facts?

  11. ………

  12. You don’t have the read the textbooks only to find it for yourself buddy.

  13. Unnecessary name calling lets me know that you lack basic intelligence. I am not defending Japan, just presenting an alternative view. Textbooks are filled with lies…

  14. If Truman was a terrorist, then he would have bombed Japan until the entire Japanese race is no more. You really have no idea what you’re talking about do you?

  15. So? He killed millions of people, he’s the same kind of terrorist as them.

  16. Idiot, Japan was going to say to the Allies ,”We are going to keep our empire we kept in Asia”. Basically, they wanted to surrender on their terms, not our terms. The Japanese government was not going to accept an uncondtional surrender. Stop defending Japan you mindless puppet.

  17. Nope, that would be the Japanese and the Germans. They killed far more innocent people than those who died in the A-bombs.

  18. hmmm lol?

  19. Those poor Nazis.

  20. 17:18 Wow! I wonder what was going on in the minds of Truman and Barkley when they saw that drum majorette strut her sexy stuff down Pennsylvania Avenue????

  21. This was the first Presidential Inauguration to have been televised. An 80-year old man who witnessed Benjamin Harrison’s swearing-in on March 4, 1889, watched this ceremony in the comfort of his home on that newfangled thingamajig called TV. He declared that TV was the better way to go.

  22. Who killed millions of people, he was one of the greatest terrorists ever….

  23. I’m wondering if Thomas Dewey attended this?
