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..."

You know, here we are. We are blowing each other up with these horrible bombs. And I agree with Danielle. When we get to some future year, when idk, aliens come see us and say, "You guys are fucked up! You guys kill each other! What the fuck is wrong with you?" AND THEY'RE FUCKING RIGHT!

Has everyone forgot that they attacked Hawaii on
a Sunday? That's what started the nuclear
attack. They woke a sleeping giant and paid
dearly for it. It's survival of the fittest on this
planet, and at that time he who had the nukes,
ended the wars. There are monuments in place
to reminds us of the tragedy in Hawaii, war is
ugly. This was a swift blow instead of a drawn
out battle. Truman made the right call.

I can't understand why some humans are capable of such hatred and have disregard for human life and suffering. It seems the American government has to uphold its masculine image or it will be looked down upon. No sympathy for anyone or an attempt to understand, just go in, conquer and declare victory. The American government did it to the Native Americans, Immigrants, The Middle East and who knows who else will fall victim. The worst part is that the citizens are often lied to or are in the dark about the truth. I grew up being taught in a way that makes these victims seem less human and for most it works in detaching emotions, but I felt confused. Why did these people deserve such a fate? Often all they were doing was trying to protect their home and the government took it from them. Yes Alquida was a threat to America, but that doesn't mean we invade other countries and terrorized innocent citizens. American needs a government with compassion and no longer filled with lies.
