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!

You stupid, stupid cunt. Of course it was a war crime. Is justifiable to kill civilians, so long as they're not 'merrikkkan?

God bless America? Give me a break.
You're saying God should bless America when America went against so many rules in the Bible?
1) Thou shalt not kill
2) Love your neighbor as yourself
3) If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.
4) Do not take revenge
etc., etc.

Besides, why should God bless a generation that is trying so hard to rid him from our every day lives?

But he does anyways. America should count itself lucky that God is so merciful and forgiving.
