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..."

It's laughable when someone tries to justify something like this -or to pass blame onto others. Mindless patriots, manipulated dumbasses that believe in crafted stories of the good against the evil foreigners. (This, sadly, applies to any country imaginable)

This event is not justifiable. Under no
circumstances is this anything short of
heinous. There should not be arguments of
blame and just cause on this page, just
mutual remorse for lost lives.

Tall guy!
The mess we made? Haha look up Unit 731, the
bataan death march and the general treatment of
civilians in asia during the japanese conquests. We
went in there and stopped them. Question our
methods if you must, but you can't deny the
results. We finished the second world war that they
started.

You know what? I have tremendous sympathy for
the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but we had
no other choice. We gave Japan numerous chances
to surrender, but to no avail. They were sending
their own people to their deaths needlessly with
such thinks as kamikaze attacks. That and if we
didn't use that bomb, then it would've been a full
scale invasion of Japan that would've cost millions,
yes I said millions, of lives on all sides. If you want
to blame someone, blame Adolf Hitler for starting
all of this in the first place.
