Did the Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki Really End the War?
Timothy Alexander Guzman, Silent Crow News – “War is peace” at least according to a Sid Miller, a Texas official for Department of Agriculture and former state representative posted a facebook comment suggesting that the atomic bombs dropped in two Japanese cities during World War II killing and permanently injuring tens of thousands of people should be used again, this time against the Muslim world according to RT news. The facebook post read “Japan Has Been at Peace with the U.S. Since August 9, 1945, It’s Time we Made Peace with the Muslim World” with a picture of a mushroom cloud from an atomic explosion. RT News reported that “A Texas official will not apologize for a shared post on his Facebook page that insinuates an atomic bomb should be dropped on “the Muslim world.” Although the Department of Agriculture “claimed he did not personally share the post” it has undoubtedly caused a backlash against Miller. Manny Garcia, the deputy executive director of the Texas Democratic Party released a statement and said “It is unacceptable for Republican Sid Miller to be promoting such disgusting rhetoric. Sadly, this kind of racist, xenophobic hate speech qualifies you for higher office with Republicans’ Tea Party fringe base” according to RT. The Associated Press said that Miller’s post was removed on Monday. On April, 2015, The Pew Research Center published a survey regarding the U.S. military dropping atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima with more than 140,000 casualties and Nagasaki with 70,000 casualties during World War II found that the “share of Americans who believe the use of nuclear weapons was justified is now 56%, with 34% saying it was not.” The fact is that the bombing of the Japanese cities did not bring peace as The Telegraph, a British main-stream news source titled ‘Evidence that the atomic bomb did not win the war against Japan.’ It stated the following:
As an instance of dozens of pieces of evidence, intercepted diplomatic cables of July 12-13 1945 show that Japan’s Emperor had intervened to attempt to end the war prior to the use of the atomic bombs. Subsequent intercepted cables showed Japan responding positively to a US offer of a surrender based on the Atlantic Charter as put forward in an official US government radio broadcast on July 21 1945.
In his memoirs, Admiral William D Leahy, the President’s chief of staff and the top official at meetings of American and British chiefs of staff, minced few words, writing: “The use of this barbarous weapon at Hiroshima and Nagasaki was of no material assistance in our war against Japan. The Japanese were already defeated and ready to surrender”
Sid Miller is not alone
In 2013, a psychopath Republican and U.S. representative from California Duncan D. Hunter was quoted as saying on a C-Span interview “If you have to hit Iran, you don’t put American boots on the ground, you do it with tactical nuclear weapons and you set them back a decade or two or three.” Another psycho politician and Henry Kissinger worshipper is a Republican senator from Arizona John McCain who famously was quoted as saying “That old, eh, that old Beach Boys song, Bomb Iran,” laughing with the crowd “Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, anyway, ah …” as the audience laughed with him. The Times of Israel reported in 2013 that American Jewish billionaire Sheldon Adelson had called for the U.S. to “detonate a nuclear bomb in the Iranian desert to display toughness” at a conference at New York’s Yeshiva University and said “What are we going to negotiate about?” concerning Iran’s nuclear program at the time, Adelson continued:
What I would say is, ‘Listen. You see that desert out there, I want to show you something.’ …You pick up your cellphone and you call somewhere in Nebraska and you say, ‘OK let it go.’ And so there’s an atomic weapon, goes over ballistic missiles, the middle of the desert, that doesn’t hurt a soul. Maybe a couple of rattlesnakes, and scorpions, or whatever. And then you say, ‘See? The next one is in the middle of Tehran.’ So, we mean business
Adelson’s statement was absurd and idiotic. If the U.S. were to drop a nuclear bomb in Iran’s dessert to show its “toughness” would affect millions of people in the Middle East as a nuclear fallout or radioactive dust would spread throughout the region and beyond causing such illnesses as cancer. Findings by the Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) regarding the Nevada test site where nuclear weapons testing took place in the desert areas in the state of Nevada:
Between 1951 and 1958, around 100 nuclear weapons tests were conducted in the atmosphere at the Nevada Test Site (NTS). Located about 100 km northwest of Las Vegas, the NTS was larger than many small countries, offering some 3,500 square km of undisturbed land. The average yield for the atmospheric tests was 8.6 kilotons (kt). The fallout from the tests contained radionuclides and gases which were transported thousands of miles away from the NTS by winds. As a result, people living in the United States during these years were exposed to varying levels of radiation
The Arab world including Israel would be exposed to the nuclear fallout in some point in time. Todd Smith, a political consultant said that it is the Islamic state, Iran and U.S. president Barack Obama (who actually made a “willful decision” to support the Islamic state as former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency Michael T. Flynn admitted) who need to apologize, not Miller. According to RT News:
Todd Smith, a political consultant for Miller, said he didn’t know why the post was scrubbed. He added that Miller’s critics should demand an apology from Islamic terrorists, Iran and US President Barack Obama. “We think those are all issues that deserve an apology and are much more serious than a thought-provoking Facebook post,” Smith said
Using nuclear weapons against the Middle East is absolute madness. It will ignite a war that would last for decades. A nuclear war against the Arab people will not bring peace; it will create hatred against the West. A message to Sid Miller, U.S. Representative Duncan D. Hunter, Sheldon Adelson and every other warmonger including the Israeli government of Benjamin Netanyahu who want to use nuclear weapons against the Arab people, no one will win.
History will reveal that Washington and Tel Aviv were the ultimate enemies of the human race and will be seen in the same light as the Nazi’s, the pariah states that committed genocide against the Arab people.
