ED NOTE: Duplicate posts

Folks--

Over the next few days we're going to be doing some house-cleaning of posts at H-War.  Unfortunately, some of the activity will generate duplicate notifications to subscribers, so you may see some old posts come through again.  We'll work to keep that to a minimum, but I wanted to give you a head's up.

cheers,

Re: Hand Grenade of the Week

Hand Grenade of the Month for August 2015

Seventy Years -- The Moral Debate Continues

That’s right --70 years ago this month, the granddaddy, or as the late-Saddam Hussein might say, the mother of all hand grenades, went off at Hiroshima. (sorry for the contraction but blogs are exempt from formal writing requirements.) The moral debates continue but I will (not “would”) go on the record once and for all on this topic, a minor hand grenade in comparison.
