Sioux Falls Free Thinkers endorse 24 Hours After Hiroshima for making
it clear that our military keep Hiroshima clear of other bombing so it
could measure the effects of the atomic bomb on a city with a largely
civilian population. 70,000 never knew what hit them. 70,000 more
died horribly from burns and radiation. The city had little military value.

It was an act of pure genocide.

The atomic bombing of Hiroshima, on August 6th, 1945, was a moment that changed the world. Power that fueled the stars had been unleashed and turned into a lethal technology. Now learn the second-by-second story of that defining moment through those hit hardest by that weapon - the survivors. Interwoven throughout the survivor's stories, we hear from atomic bomb experts like Massachusetts Institute of Technology Professor Theodore Postol and "The Making of the Atomic Bomb" author Richard Rhodes, who draw from declassified military reports to break down the bomb's devastating effects and the lasting implications of humanity's newfound power to destroy the world.

Bonus Program: Secret History of the Atom Bomb

(Webmaster's comment: The bonus program is pure propaganda. It tries to make a case that ALL nuclear bomb technology was stolen from the United States. Never mind that The Soviet Union surpassed our abilities to make the biggest atomic bombs. We gave up because we lost control of the explosions. Watch the documentary World's Biggest Bomb.)

The atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were war crimes. Full stop!
There is no justification for killing hundreds of thousands of civilians! Seventy-two years ago this week the United States committed war crimes against the Japanese people on a scale that was previously unimaginable in human history. It is almost impossible to utter this truism in public without being subjected to a chorus of tediously well-rehearsed, half-understood objections learned from high-school classrooms, pop history, and talk radio. The most common form these replies take is that, so far from being acts of state-sponsored mass murder, the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were humanitarian missions meant primarily to save lives: Had it not been for the instantaneous slaughter of some 220,000 people (a conservative estimate), mainly civilians, the war would have been unnecessarily prolonged. It was far better, assuming those projected casualty figures, which since at least 1947 have routinely been estimated upward after the fact, to kill a few hundred thousand civilians rather than risk an equal or greater number of dead American and Japanese soldiers. If this would-be lofty motive were behind the bombings, it would certainly have come as a surprise to President Harry Truman and the American people at the time. Nothing could be more grimly clarifying than the words with which Truman broke the news of Hiroshima to the American people, an address worthy of a Star Wars villain in which he made it clear that he considered the attack, and its forthcoming sequel, a mission of revenge and spoke rapturously of the "marvel" he had unleashed upon the Japanese and the "achievement of scientific brains" that had made it possible. (Webmaster's comment: The American military wanted to test their new mass killing weapon on targets that had little bombing damage so far (because they had little military value) to see their effects on unspoiled targets. So goodby to 220,000 mostly innocent lives thanks to the American military! One of the worst war crimes ever! And we hold our nuclear power over the rest of the world. And we will probably be the first to do it again!)
