    185,000 people died in the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings and their immediate aftermath. Of these, around 110,000 died instantly, and the rest died within days of trauma and radiation sustained in the bombing.

    An estimated 2,606 people who were in the World Trade Center and on the ground perished in the attacks on and the subsequent collapse of the towers.

    Clearly there is no comparison.

    More people died, but trying to compare tragedies is something only insane people do.

    It's not a competition. 

    Any loss of life is sad.

    All three events were sad in that innocent civilians were targeted. One major difference is that Hiroshima and Nagasaki were targeted during a declared war. Atomic bombs were used in an attempt to end a war early, with the resultant overall saving of lives with that expected if the war continued via conventional methods. That does not impact the 'sad' factor, but is noted as just a difference.

    It was sad but if we had invaded Japan, millions would have died.

    Uh no.

    Japan attacked the US first, they got what they deserved at the time.

    Pearl Harbor was also filled with a ton of Japs. Do you think they cared?

    No.

    They slaughtered their own ON AMERICAN SOIL.

    They were monumental tragedies, to be sure.

    But Hiroshima and Nagasaki ended a war, whereas 9/11 started one.
