In a post long even for Dave Armstrong’s Tolstoyian standards he looks at the Nuclear Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki: Do They Meet Catholic Just War Standards of Morality? He provides a roundup of opinions, but mostly on the side that the bombings were immoral (the camp that would include me). For most of my life I bought into the position that it was necessary action in order to save lives and the concept of doing evil to achieve good was fine with me. Even after visiting both Nagasaki and Hiroshima while stationed in Japan I still held to this opinion. Since then though I have seen that if this could be morally justified then anything could be as a commenter over at Amy Welborn’s site had previously noted.
