BE ASHAMED - BE VERY ASHAMED!



A WEEK OF INFAMY



This is a week of American shame.    An atrocity committed so heinous it is beyond comprehension.   It falls in the same category as the Jewish Holocaust:

On August 6, 1945 a United States B-29 bomber (the Enola Gay) released an atomic weapon that detonated 1900 feet above Hiroshima, Japan, killing 140,000 of the 350,000 inhabitants and leveling two-thirds of the city.   Less than a week later a second bomb was dropped on the city of Nagasaki killing 70,000 of the 270,000 inhabitants: women, children, old men and women – non combatants.  






 

This genocidal attack by the United States killed almost a quarter of a million civilian, and the radiation from this attack caused sickness, casualties and deformities of the population for decades after. 

9-11 will be covered in high school history books; but you will find no mention of this crime against humanity.  



Teach this to your children and grandchildren - otherwise they will never know.

  2. I wonder if Japanese Bloggers post about Pearl Harbor on December 7th of every year and talk about how ashamed they should be!

    1. Not quite the same thing. Pearl Harbor was a military target not a civilian target.

    2. Perhaps, but it is a long ways from 6 million Jews and others sent into the ovens. That is not quite the same thing either.

  3. We were looking at a million US causalities to take the Japanese homeland. Japan had been known to fight to the last man, no surrender, more than one Japanese army was completely lost during the war.

    Japan refused to surrender after the first bomb so the second one was used, and that did it. A huge number of American lives were saved.

    My Dad was sailing tankers during that war & I was born after that...
    On one anniversary I read a guys story, he'd was freed from a German POW camp, given some leave & was getting ready for the invasion of the Japanese homeland when Japan surrendered, he didn't fell bad about the use of the atom bomb.

    I guess it's just 'the bomb'. I can't imagine the American apologists would rather have had dead Americans than use 'the bomb'.

    So much wholesale death in WW2 that Hiroshima & Nagasaki would be foot notes if the US had fire bombed them.

    There are a lot of past guilts out there for someone to live with if they really need to, a lot of present ones too. -shrug-

    1. Two wrongs don't make a right. Civilian target. Is this the way we should fight wars...if so 9-11 could be justified.

    2. Do write about the firebombing of Tokyo (March 1945) or Dresden (February 1945) on their anniversaries?

      WW2 was a terrible time, my dad lived through it & that's part of 'me'.

  4. No sympathy for your infantile view of war. War is hell and you better be damn well be ready for the consequences should you wake a sleeping giant as Japan did in 1941.

    1. Vietnam vet. Tell me about it: 58,000 died and for what? We shouldn't have been there and we accomplished nothing. So don't wave the flag at me.

    2. 58k dead Americans and a lot of money was made by some. That does not look to have changed at all.

  5. Oh Buzz, don't you know that Japanese don't really matter? We Americans are the only ones who count and the only ones who deserve to live the good life. Yes, this is sarcasm.
    What's sad is the U.S. is still killing people off left and right but often in the name of another country.
    Is the bombing of Japan really not in the history books?
    Oh btw, my father also fought in the war and won several medals but at the same time he could not condone the bombings.
    The thing is it is all about greed and money in the long run. As Rob says. No race is better than another is the bottom line!
