So some top level government guy from the US attended the memorial services for those that died when Hiroshima was nuked.
Not only this US government lackey, but representitives from France, England(?), Germany(?), not to mention the Korean UN Peace Guy (sorry, I don't
pay too much attention to who's who when it comes to governmental crap. I don't like Governments trying to govern me.). This is the first time in
sixty five years that a rep from the US has attended the memorial service.
So naturally there is talk that this is a sign that people (specifically the UN, and the US/ Obama presidency) are getting serious about worldwide
That's great, I'm all for a nuke free world, however I don't think that it will come about as a result of politics. Politics is the whole reason
we even have nuclear weapons in the first place. It is because we have different governments that oppose each other we find it necessary to arm our
selves with nuclear weapons. As long as there's a US (or any other) government that makes some other government(for example say Iraq, or North
Korea) feel threatened or whatever, there will be some country that want nukes.
It would be nice if all the governments got together and said "enough of this silliness, lets dump all the nukes and be happy" . Even if they did,
not everyone would comply (N. Korea, Iraq, etc). If history is anything to go by, we've seen that the one thing that different governments can't do
is get together and agree to do something.
The only way it's gonna happen is when all the common people all over the world get fed up with all the various governments and say F*** O** we're
not gonna listen to you anymore, and start to govern themselves.
As far as I'm concerned, the US sending a rep over to the Hiroshima thing is nothing but a calculated move to generate 'good press' for the US.
Let me know what you guys think.
Uhhh... sorry if I seem a bit, rude, or uncaring about the victims and the survivors of the Hiroshima Holocaust, I don't mean any disrespect.
