Hiroshima



The Hiroshima Peace Memorial
I paid a visit to Hiroshima last November from my base in Osaka. It was a special experience to see the marks of this atrocity.

The Land of the Rising Sun was more or less nuked into democracy. Considering this, we could even say that the Pacific War was Wilson's war on steroids.

Nuked into accepting the American/Allied terms of total surrender and then occupied. The Tenno was forced to denounce the traditional Japanese view of the Emperor, Americans wrote a constitution totally emasculating him, and “The Empire of Japan” was dropped as an official term.

A horrible anniversary indeed, sir, and a tyrannical tendency of these u.S. that can be traced to the War of Northern Aggression and the megalomania of one Ulysses S. Grant.
