He compares the hypocrisy of the bombings in Hiroshima/Nagasaki.

"The civilians were the targets and nobody, even on the American side, has suggested otherwise"

Brendan Behan was being interviewed by someone from Pathe News. The interviewer put it to Behan that he had been caught in Britain with gelignite in his pocket.

Behan responded that what he hated most was snobbery and, in that instance, the snobbery was that small bombs were wicked, while big bombs were respectable.
