Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki



How come we so conveniently forget the single greatest mass murder of our lifetime? This was the worst...the annihilation of Japan, while a response to Pearl harbor was necessary, this was beyond conceivable, yet it happened nonetheless.

The amount of people that died from this act is 30 times worse than 9/11. They didn't all die right away, probably 30-60% of them did, but many suffered for years before succumbing to the affects of radiation poisoning.


Within the first two to four months of the bombings, the acute effects killed 90,000–166,000 people in Hiroshima and 60,000–80,000 in Nagasaki, with roughly half of the deaths in each city occurring on the first day. The Hiroshima prefecture health department estimated that, of the people who died on the day of the explosion, 60% died from flash or flame burns, 30% from falling debris and 10% from other causes. During the following months, large numbers died from the effect of burns, radiation sickness, and other injuries, compounded by illness. In a US estimate of the total immediate and short term cause of death, 15–20% died from radiation sickness, 20–30% from burns, and 50–60% from other injuries, compounded by illness. In both cities, most of the dead were civilians, although Hiroshima had a sizable garrison.

And lets not forget the Holocaust...that some people ridiculously don't believe happened...there is no way to specify how many of the 11,000,000 people that died at the hands of these madmen were killed in the same moment...some of these death camp gas chambers were huge...lets just guess between the locations they had at least 3,000 at a time were killed in each location daily that is 27,000+ daily.


Extermination camps Main article: Extermination camp The use of camps equipped with gas chambers for the purpose of systematic mass extermination of peoples was a unique feature of the Holocaust and unprecedented in history. Never before had there existed places with the express purpose of killing people en masse. These were established at Auschwitz, Belzec, Chełmno, Jasenovac, Majdanek, Maly Trostenets, Sobibor, and Treblinka.

Just because killing happens in the act of war does not lessen the fact that they were and all are mass killings at the hands of madmen running governments throughout this stupid planet.

Wait what? You think the nuclear bombings were a response to Pearl Harbor?


"To put an immediate end to the war
The USA was facing the prospect of invading Japan to subdue it. The last few battles, Iwo Jima and Okinawa particularly, were incomprehensibly bloody. Japan had no regard for its own citizens' lives and planned to turn their whole island into a fortress. It was estimated that casualties would be 1 million Americans and half a million British in the first invasion alone. Some cynics say we used it to scare Stalin as well, but the fact remains that they ignored an ultimatum on 27 July 1945 after enduring the worst conventional bombs could do. A powerful argument remains that the Bomb saved allied and Japanese lives.

Ok, yeah I see that the bombings were the worst instantaneous loss of life to our knowlege.
But the holocaust???
There are too many pieces of information that point the holocaust out to be more hologram than holocaust.
Census figures that don't provide enough people to fill the victim total, bad engineering from the German people, (really, the worlds best engineers would not overlook design flaws such as these.), physical impossibilities and the list goes on and on.
Even on the holocaust memorial the figure was OFFICIALLY changed from 6 million to 1.5 million. (liars got caught in the act and had to backtrack).
I think what the allies did with the German prisoners in Africa most probably was worse than all of the losses in the "holocaust".
Not to mention the civillian losses in Russia due to their own government.
The "holocaust" is a lie, otherwise why is it a taboo to talk about??
But yeah, Hiroshima and Nagasaki were pretty bad, Japanese pride made those happen though.

First of all, I dont think your even close enough to consider this event or the holocast as happening in your lifetime. Lets remember that if it didn't happen while you where breathing you only have personal congecture as to whether it took place or not.

I'm 52 years old and neither of these events happened during my lifetime. You would have to to be at least 16 years older than me to have been breathing and I'm betting "with the odds on my side" that in order to have been conscious at the time to understand what was happening, you would have needed to be at the very least "6" years old.


So tell me I'm wrong...... How old are you?
