"A Hungarian-born physicist who helped persuade President Roosevelt to launch the A-bomb project and who had a major share in it. In 1945, however, he was a key figure among the scientists opposing use of the bomb. Later he turned to biophysics, and this year was awarded the Einstein medal for "outstanding achievement in natural sciences.""
Lasrever: This is for those of you who say "never forget" the bombing of Pearl Harbor. My response is "never forget" the nuclear weapons dropped on civilians in Japan. Contrary to what many of you think I believe Japan was in defeat anyway and the murder of all those people was to make a point to Russia -- thus leading to the nuclear arms race of the Cold War during the 1960s. A pointless expenditure of money and time used to prove who had more missiles when, in the end, past a certain point it doesn't matter who can destroy the world faster/better. The policy of mutual destruction doesn't usurp the value of diplomacy or economic pressure. I conclude this by saying: RIP to the American soldiers who died in Pearl Harbor and RIP, especially, to the Japanese civilians.
