Day in History: One Little Boy kills 70,000 in Japan
8:15 August 6th, 1945 the world changed significantly. The United States Unleashed the atomic bomb. The course of Human history was altered. We had used a weapon of mass destruction and 70,000 lives were wiped out in an instant. The weapon's yield was considered very inefficient was a gun type FISSION WEAPON. It's yield was only 13 Kilotons. That said a single bomb had a blast radius of about one mile.
White people really are the killer angels.
90% of Hiroshima's buildings were destroyed or partially destroyed.
Say what you will this WAS a humane way to end the war.
The coming invasion of Japan was sure to cause the lose of over 100,000 of American lives, and probably millions of Japanese. Also at risk was the execution of ~100,000 POWs who would have been disposed of, had Japan's mainland been invaded.
The Japanese, were extremely tenacious, and would have fought even harder (if possible) as they had in the Japanese Islands of Iwo Jima, Okinawa and others. Civilians would have been sacrificed, or killed themselves in droves.
You have to remember 100,000 lives were killed in the fire bombing of Tokyo, that had been going on, and would have continued.
Yes, atomic weapons are terrible, Japan paid the price, but was it not due?
The military mentality was if a human was not a Japanese, they are sub human. Massacres in China and other areas proved that. Mayby in way this is the karmic payback for this.
We all paid for it, now we have nukes in France, China, Russia, USA, Britain, India, Pakistan, Israel and Iran. May the number decrease, lest our Alien oversears come down and kick our ass.
