WarWWII → Victim of atomic bombing of Hiroshima

The atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were nuclear attacks during World War II against the Empire of Japan by the United States of America under US President Harry S. Truman. On August 6, 1945, the first choice target, Hiroshima, was having clear weather. At 8:15 a.m. (local time), the Enola Gay's door sprang open and dropped "Little Boy." The bomb exploded 1,900 feet above the city and only missed the target, the Aioi Bridge, by approximately 800 feet. Staff Sergeant George Caron, the tail gunner, described what he saw: "The mushroom cloud itself was a spectacular sight, a bubbling mass of purple-gray smoke and you could see it had a red core in it and everything was burning inside... It looked like lava or molasses covering a whole city..." The cloud is estimated to have reached a height of 40,000 feet.

Hiroshima's population has been estimated at 350,000; approximately 70,000 died immediately from the explosion and another 70,000 died from radiation within five years. A survivor described the damage to people: "The appearance of people was... well, they all had skin blackened by burns... They had no hair because their hair was burned, and at a glance you couldn't tell whether you were looking at them from in front or in back... They held their arms bent [forward] like this... and their skin - not only on their hands, but on their faces and bodies too - hung down... If there had been only one or two such people... perhaps I would not have had such a strong impression. But wherever I walked I met these people... Many of them died along the road - I can still picture them in my mind -- like walking ghosts..."

Dont matter
There are consequences to every action. When u get the balls to hit your big brother does he not dish out the pain to make you realize you had no business doing it in the first place. This is a result of what they did to us in pearl harbor. This is little brother vs big brother scenerio. Think before u mess with people. That is unfortunate bout this man but so is what Hitler did. If u Lead a country like japan and u bomb pearl Harbor u better have thought of your Citizens in your country. If u did that is one crumby leader. Mind you he still didn't surrender after the first bomb was dropped.

Not only should the United States, but the whole
world should not use anymore Atom Bombs. They
should re-create other types of missiles, so that
everyone could be spared and there will be a lot
less collatteral damage done to the rest of the
world. Thank you for taking the time to read...
