The only thing liberals hate more than the United States military is the United States military achieving victory.

And in the era of social justice political correctness, no military event unnerves the left more than America winning World War II by dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The bombings prevented the deaths of tens of thousands of American soldiers set for a ground invasion of Japan, but Obama doesn’t see it that way.

Obama has a more disturbing view of that incident.

Members of his regime are kicking around the idea of the president spending several hours on the ground at the site of the bombings.

No American president has ever visited Hiroshima or Nagasaki — for good reason.

That’s because any visit would be viewed as an apology for America’s actions.

The Washington Post reports:

No sitting U.S. president has ever visited Hiroshima, out of concern that such a trip might be interpreted as an apology. The bombings killed 140,000 people, but has been viewed by many Americans as a necessary evil to end World War II and save the lives of U.S. troops.

Today, however, there is growing sentiment inside the White House that President Obama, who in his first year envisioned a world without nuclear weapons, should cap his final year with a grand symbolic gesture in service of a goal that remains well out of reach.

No final decision has been made, but aides have begun exploring the possibility of Obama spending several hours in Hiroshima in May, after attending the Group of Seven Summit in Ise-Shima, halfway between Tokyo and Hiroshima. One senior Obama administration official, in an interview, suggested that the president could potentially deliver a speech there that evokes the non-proliferation themes of his address in Prague in 2009. Such a move would draw international attention in a more emotional fashion than did his nuclear security summit in Washington last week.

In fact, at the beginning of his presidency, Obama sought to apologize for America’s use of atomic weapons during World War II, but was stopped by the Japanese government.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

It was also revealed in a top secret cable published in 2011 by Wikileaks that the Japanese government vetoed the idea of President Obama visiting Hiroshima in September 2009 and apologizing for the atomic bomb.

And while the Japanese government prevented Obama from apologizing for America winning World War II, that did not stop him from beginning his presidency with what many critics contended was an “apology tour.”

In the first few months after he took office in 2009, Obama traveled the globe and apologized for what he and the left believed to be the sins committed by America in foreign affairs.

In France, he claimed America had “shown arrogance” and been “dismissive” of Europe.

In an interview with Al-Arabiya, his apology came in the form of telling the Muslim world “America has not been perfect.”

During a trip to Turkey, he chastised America for “the dark periods” in our own history.

Those are just a few of the apologies Obama has issued since taking office.

It appears he may close his regime by issuing the biggest apology of all.

While President Truman’s agonizing decision to authorize the use of atomic weapons at Hiroshima and Nagasaki killed 140,000 Japanese, it was weighed against the cost of American lives potentially lost during an invasion.

Japan’s army stationed on the home islands would have put forth fierce resistance to an American invasion.

Estimates of allied casualties were near one million for an amphibious invasion of the Japanese islands.

President Truman balanced the cost of American lives with the need to end the war in the Pacific, and made the impossible decision to authorize the use of two atomic bombs.

But now Obama is seeking to apologize for America winning World War II and defeating the axis powers that sought to impose fascist domination of the globe.

Will Obama apologize for one of America’s great military victories?
