While it’s sad civilians lost their lives, their government is entirely to blame for it.
I am happy that the US dropped those two bombs over Japan, it ended the war and saved tens if not hundreds of thousands of American soldiers/airmen and sailors, not to mention even more civilian lives had the US invaded the mainland. Enough with historical revisionism.
Japan marks 72 years since Hiroshima atomic bomb
Tokyo (AFP) – Japan on Sunday marked 72 years since the world’s first nuclear attack on Hiroshima, with the nation’s traditional contradictions over atomic weapons again coming into focus.
The anniversary came after Japan sided last month with nuclear powers Britain, France and the US to dismiss a UN treaty banning atomic weapons, which was rejected by critics for ignoring the reality of security threats such as North Korea.
Japan is the only country to have suffered atomic attacks, in 1945.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, speaking at the annual ceremony at Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park near the ground zero, said Japan hoped to push for a world without nuclear weapons in a way that all countries can agree.
