65 years ago today, for the first time in the history of humankind, the nuclear weapon was used against innocent civilians by America.  65 years ago today was Monday. At 1:30 am, early on Monday morning, August 6th in 1945, America’s B-29 bomber, the Enola Gay left Tinian Island in the western Pacific. At 8:05 am, the Enola Gay reached the sky over Hiroshima. 10 minutes later, at 8:15 am, the Enola Gay dropped the world’s first atomic bomb on the center of Hiroshima which had a population of 350,000.

We should focus attention on the day and time when America dropped the atomic bomb. 8:15 am. and Monday morning… Why did the Enola Gay carry out the world’s first atomic bombing at 8:15 a.m.? Why did the Enola Gay drop the atomic bomb on Monday morning? American Army knew Japanese schools held morning meetings on Monday morning. 8:15 on Monday was the time that schools started morning meetings. American Army knew school children would round up in schoolyards for morning meetings at 8:15 am. Therefore, American Army set the time of dropping the world’s first atomic bomb at 8:15 am, on Monday, August 6th. For what? To kill Japanese school children efficiently and to crush all hope in Japan’s future. As a result of America’s atomic bombing, 140,000 people out of 350,000 citizens of then Hiroshima died. Most of 140,000 people were children, women and elderly people. They suffered and suffered, and died in great agony. It is obvious that America carried out genocide against the Japanese people on the pretext of ending the war.

Only 3 days after the atomic bombing on Hiroshima, the world’s second atomic bomb caused the further humanitarian tragedy for innocent civilians of Nagasaki. American Army dropped new type of atomic bomb different from the bomb that they dropped on Hiroshima 3 days ago. 70,000 people out of 240,000 citizens of then Nagasaki died. While American Army dropped ‘uranium-type bomb’ on Hiroshima, they dropped ‘plutonium-type bomb’ on Nagasaki. America succeeded in developing two different types of atomic bombs. America carried out the experiment of two different types of atomic bombs on hundreds of thousands living human bodies in the confusion just before the end of the war.

Some people, especially Americans say, “The atomic bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima ended the war. These two atomic bombs saved millions of lives that would have been lost through a long lasting war.” This is delusive sophistry to justify America’s hideous crime against humanity. 

The people who believe that these two atomic bombs ended the war should recognize that America prolonged the war intending to drop atomic bombs on Japanese cities by presenting unacceptable terms of surrender against Japan. The people who believe that these two atomic bombs ended the war should recognize that there are rules even during wartime. America’s atomic bombing obviously violated the Hague Convention that prohibited attacks on civilians. The people who believe that these two atomic bombs ended the war should recognize that there are many people who still suffer atomic-bomb disease now, 65 years after the war. The people who believe that these two atomic bombs ended the war should recognize that there are the people who are called “children of atomic-bomb victims”. Why they who have no relationship with the war 65 years ago have to suffer atomic-bomb disease?

Atomic bombing is the worst war crime against humanity in human history. But American Presidents have never once visited Hiroshima or Nagasaki. No more Hiroshima, No more Nagasaki. Pearl Harbor once again!

Yasukuni Shrine – 1

65年前の今日、人類史上はじめて、アメリカによって核兵器が一般市民に使用されました。65年前の今日、1945年8月6日、月曜日早朝の午前1時30分、アメリカのB29爆撃機、エノラゲイは西太平洋上のテニアン島を飛び立ちました。。午前8時05分、エノラゲイは広島上空に到達、その10分後の8時15分、エノラゲイは35万人の人口を持つ広島の中心部に、世界ではじめての原子爆弾を投下しました。

私たちは、アメリカが原爆を投下した曜日と時刻に着目すべきです。8時15分、そして月曜日であったことを。なぜエノラゲイは8時15分に、世界最初の原爆を投下したのか?なぜエノラゲイは月曜日に原爆を投下したのか?を。アメリカ陸軍は、日本の学校が月曜日の朝に朝礼を行うのを知っていました。月曜日の8時15分という時刻は、学校が朝礼を始める時刻です。アメリカ陸軍は、午前8時15分には、生徒たちが朝礼のために校庭に出ることを知っていたのです。それゆえに、アメリカ陸軍は、世界最初の原爆投下時刻を8月6日月曜日の午前8時15分に設定したのでした。なんのためか?効率よく日本の子供たちを殺すためです。そして、日本の将来への望みを打ち砕くためでした。

アメリカの原爆投下の結果、当時の広島市民35万人のうち14万人が死にました。14万人のほとんどが子供たちであり、女性であり、お年寄りの人たちでした。彼らは苦しんで苦しんで、もがきながら死んでいきました。アメリカが、戦争終結を口実として、日本人を大量虐殺したことは明白なのです。

広島への原爆投下からわずか3日後、史上2番目の原爆が長崎の一般市民に対してさらなる非人道的な惨劇をもたらしました。アメリカ陸軍は3日前に広島に投下した爆弾とは異なった新型の原爆を投下したのです。当時の長崎の24万人の市民のうち7万人が亡くなりました。アメリカ陸軍は広島にウラン型原爆を投下する一方で、長崎にはプルトニウム型原爆を投下したのです。アメリカは2つの異なるタイプの原爆の開発に成功していたのです。アメリカは、終戦間際のどさくさに紛れて、数十万人の生きた人間に対して、この異なる2つのタイプの原子爆弾の人体実験を行ったのです。

ある人たちは言います。特にアメリカ人が言います。「広島・長崎への原爆投下が戦争を終わらせたのだ。この2つの原爆が、長引く戦争で亡くなったであろう数百万人の生命を救ったのだ」と。これは、アメリカの身の毛もよだつほど残忍で非人道的な犯罪を正当化するための欺瞞に満ちた詭弁なのです。

2つの原爆が戦争を終結させたと信じる人々は、アメリカが原爆を日本の都市に投下する目的で、故意に日本に受け入れ難い降伏条件を突きつけ、戦争を長引かせたことを理解すべきです。2つの原爆が戦争を終結させたと信じる人々は、戦時下においてさえ、守るべきルールが存在することを知るべきです。アメリカの原爆投下は明らかに、一般市民への攻撃を禁じたハーグ条約に違反します。2つの原爆が戦争を終結させたと信じる人々は、終戦から65年経った今なお、たくさんの人々が原爆症に苦しんでいることを知るべきです。2つの原爆が戦争を終結させたと信じる人々は、被爆2世と呼ばれる人々がいることを知るべきです。65年前の戦争とは関係のない彼らが、なぜ原爆症で苦しまなければならないのでしょうか。

原爆投下は、人類史上最悪の非人道的犯罪です。しかし、アメリカ大統領は一度たりとも広島や長崎を訪ねてはいません。ノーモア・ヒロシマ、ノーモア、ナガサキ。パールハーバー、ワンスアゲイン!

The blogger talks about the Hague convention prohibiting attacks against civilians.

At the start of WW2, U.S. President FDR publicly called for a policy of not targeting civilians, and the U.S. followed that principe for several years.

However, the Axis powers violated that ideal even before the war. Nazi Germany bombed civilians in Guernica, Spain during the Spanish Civil War (Guernica is the subject of the famous Picasso painting of the same name). Then, Germany went on to bomb civilians in Warsaw, and to commit genocide against millions of Jews, Slavs, gypsies,homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, dissenting German Christians, and others.

For its part, Japan bombed civilians in Shanghai in 1937. Later, Japanese troops raped,,tortured and murdered close to 150,000 Chinese civilians in Nanjing, and forced close to 200,000 Asian girls (Korean, Chinese, Filipina, Viet, Indonesian, and Dutch Indonesian) into a system of brutal sexual slavery (ie the “ianfu” or “comfort women.” Also, there was teh “medical unit” 731, whose evil leader, Shiro Ishii, made Josel Mengele look like a Boy Scout by comparison.

If the U.S. had invaded mainland Japan, over 500,000 U.S. soldiers and millions of Japanese would have died. It was a necessity.

P.S. It is tragic about the children and people 65 years on who are suffering in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. However, former ianfu are still suffering and the Japanese gov’t refuses to officially apologize to them and pay compensation. Many Japanese right-wingers also say that the women are liars, that they were willing prostitutes who are making up stories of coercion, and that they just want a handout for the Japanese gov’t, etc.

There are also Chinese children and others who are still suffering because of the biological and chemical experiments of Unit 731 during the war. Every year, Chinese people also get maimed and killed from unexploded Japan bombs that are still lying around in various places.

PSS. A typo above: it should be “Josef Mengele” (I don’t know whether or not I spelled Shiro Ishii’s name right in the Roman letters).

OH, and Hideki Tojo and the other 14 Class-A war criminals should be removed from Yasukuni Shrine. Pierre Pariseau got it right, though he should have been protesting outside the shrine, as it is private property.

原子爆弾が広島と長崎で起こったことでした。

広島と長崎に原子爆弾が偽物.

Hiroshima and nagasaki atomic bomb were fake . It is part of japs conspiracy

What happened in Hiroshima and Nagasaki was your government’s fault, Tamagawa. America warned Japan to release prisoners of war and cease their bloodshed across East Asia. They refursed, TWICE.

There you have it.

No matter how much you spin history and how much you deny your country’s atrocities, you can never ignore the fact that Japan LOST, and all the countries under its power rejoiced that moment.

Be grateful the US helped rebuild your country and make Japan what it is today.

Saki - March 29, 2011

Not our government’s fault.
Yes,Japan lost as you said that’s why too many countries still bush us.
America won- that’s why nobody bush their war guilt even now.

Zazza - April 2, 2011

How wasn’t it your government’s fault? THEY KNEW! THEY COULD HAVE AVOIDED THE NUKES. Are you brainwashed or something?

Accept it. They were so full of pride and delusion that they didn’t care their own people died as long as the Empire of Japan kept reigning.

James, please, inform yourself.
I’m Spaniard, Guernica was a military target attacked on a military day when convoys where arriving, with very little casualties. The painting of Picasso by the way is ugly and has no art on it, it’s only politics. And speaking about Gernica is a disrespect, it is one of the lowest casuality events in the whole three year long civil war. Thousands of people were kidnapped from their homes, and shot in the woods later.
Next one, it was the British which started fire bombing of civilian cities, Germany did not respond for three months! Germany had guaranteed Geneva and promised not to attack civilian cities, Churchill broke it, and is responsible for the deaths of a million german civilians burned alive by firebombinngs, and of thousands of his own countrymen he swore to protect by unnecesary sacrificing them to retaliatory bombarding.
Churchill also ordered chemical warfare against the 6 most populated cities, in front of him, Hitler with superior weaponary, ordered them sealed and hidden, to be used only in case used them first. So all you know, is falso, go back to a library, use internet to research, and go in shame you liar.

Conspiracy-theorist jap. Japan prolonged the war and America put a stop to it. That’s the truth, like it or not.

America follows a principle of “shock and awe.” As in cause maximum civilian infrastructure damage and maximum civilian casualties to a point the country quickly loses its willpower to fight. This is what they did in many countries- Vietnam, North Korea, Serbia, Iraq…..

The theory is that when a country’s infrastructure gets completely destroyed and there are mass civilian casualties in a very short period of time, the local population will also develop anti national sentiment as fast…and the local government is scrambling on how to control the situation at the same time. This guarantees a quick victory for the US.

It worked on Japan because it is was an industrialized country in WW2 with the bulk of the population being used to at least semi urban infrastructure. This is also why US shock & awe tactics didn’t work in Vietnam. People there are used to going by w. no infrastructure, so when the US bombed something, it really didn’t depreciate their standard of living, only took their life. And the population of Vietnam was scattered across the countryside in small hamlets.

Fighting against shock and awe tactics is a difficult and challenging proposition for an industrialized country. The only way for Japan to have beat America’s shock & awe was to out-produce American industrially….but it was always hard for Japan to do, given its size.
