To even consider putting the US and the UK in the same group as Germany, Japan and even Russia when war crimes are discussed is about as crazy as anything I've ever heard. I dont think the US held out on Japans wanting to surrender just so they could use the second bomb. I also think its crazy to say that Germany and Japan didnt start the war. They both wanted to expand their countries "empires" to include countries that they had no right to. They were guilty of causing the war then and always will be. There is no way you can absolve them of starting the war and continuing the fight when all was lost causing more needless casualties on all sides.
