comparisons are odious
Droping fat man, little boy is entirely different game as at that time no else had anything remotely capabale what they could do, heck people even did not know what Nuclear bomb could do whenit falling on them.
If they failed then at minimum they would bring down couple of building due to just KE and retallaition would have bennanother gravity bomb dropped by Japan (if they could on US forces in vicinity), but now its entirely different game.
Instead publishing BS in papers and fitting the curves to show 400% result isTSP way.
The best option would have been just say they performed instead of specific figures like 45Kt bs etc.
I used to lambalst Wallace and co at the slightest opportunity, now I feel after all they are correct and I am 100% sure it was a fizzle,. It has to be H bum or H2S bum no in between "called Partial success" like operation success but patient died.
Uncle pushed the deal, do you remember the number of VVIPS landing in Nai delli and canvasing for the deal.
Its b ecause they knew the fizzle and wanted us to stay just where we are, and PRC was co opted by sharing uncles intelligence, hencve the vote in Vienna went with out any veto or drama, the last minute buying in of chota mota scandinavian countries was also by telling them lokk this is the b est way to freeze.
BS clause of Supreme national,.... blah blah will never be exercised by our leadership which crawl when asked to kneal...
Economically we are at the strongest in our 60 odd years of Independence, wbhat is this unbearable pressure that is new to us.?
