I would like to ask your correspondent "Life Without Hope" if he, or she, considers that the rape, torture and other bestialities inflicted by the Japanese on the unfortunate men and women who have fallen under their domination does not warrant the use of any means in our power to force them into submission. Did "Life Without Hope" object to men being seared to death by flame-throwers or women and children being maimed and killed by Vbombs. or was this considered 'humane?" Lord Louis Mountbatten srave the best answer possible to chose hysterical people who would see the originator of the atomic bomb ''blown to smithereens with his own devilish implement," when he said, "It would be crazier still if wo accepted more casualties on our side to save Japanese lives."
