Brutality → Human shadow on stone steps after A-bombing of Hiroshima (08/06/1945)

The photograph shows the stone steps of the main entrance of Sumitomo Bank in Hiroshima which was only 250 meters from the hypocenter of the atomic explosure on 08/06/1945. It is believed that a person sat down on the steps facing the direction of the hypocenter, possibly waiting for the bank to open. By a flash of the heat rays with temperatures well over a 1,000 degrees or possibly 2,000 degrees centigrade, that person was incineratied on the stone steps. Up to about 10 years after the explosion, the shadow remained clearly on the stones, but exposure to rain and wind has been gradually blurring it. So, when the bank was newly built, the stone steps were removed and are now preserved at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. You can also see the beautiful computer reconstruction of this atomic explosure made by BBC (UK).

Was the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki a war crime? Of course, it's not. It was a war. To stop WWII immediately by killing thousands of people maybe was not a good idea. But you should know that only China's losses in the WWII were approximately 20 million killed by Japanese soldiers! Who could stop it? God bless America!

Your name:

The Japanese offered to full and unconditional surrender a full two weeks before the bombs were dropped.

Bombs didn't end the war. The Japanese were already beaten. The bombs were about a show of power.

Even Pearly Harbor is a sham. You seriously think all those Japanese ships could sit just beyond the horizon without getting seen. The US was warned multiple times that a huge concentration of Japanese were on the way.

God Bless America?
I can say the same about 11-9: "It wasn't a crime. It was a war".

You're brainwashed by Mr. Bush. That was a crime much worse than 11-9!!

USA needed something for entering the war and making big bussiness. There are rumors about Pearl Harbor bombered by the USA government itself and blaming Japan.

It was a lot higher than 1,000 or 2,000 degrees centigrade.

I wish this fucking site would stop putting their watermark all over everything like they own it.
