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!

fuck you!
it wasn't just a war crime, it was one of the most distgusting and cowardliest war crimes ever! to this day, people still suffer from this bomb, they have disabled children and the soil is poisoned. when i read stuff like this my dearest wish is to throw an atom bomb into fucking America. but then again, i'm not an idiot who believes that all Americans are as fucking stupid as you people are, so you are lucky!

The NFL makes up for the NBA because of Labour disputes and star leave made vacuum, simultaneous expansion and rules change makes the NFL team make games more attractive for the primary fan. More than any other improvement, fantasy game locked fans and give reasons for all they care about league team.

Proud american
Better us than japs! :D Man I feel so
proud watching this. Those japs were
some harsh maniac animals in those
fights! Just a little science and
they're silenced forever, leaving them
all like a bunch of pussies, I guess
that's why they have now that 'kawaii'
shit. They snapped ever since.

Albanians suck
Don't be harsh on Americans. Nuclear
incineration is the most humane way of
killing someone.
