August 6, 1945: The age of nuclear terrorism

Today marks the sixth-eighth anniversary of the atomic terrorist strike against unarmed civilians by the United States of America in the city of Hiroshima, Japan, which along with the atomic strike against Nagasaki days later, was the most blatant violation of the basic principles of conduct during armed conflict.

August 6, 1945. The world's first atomic terrorist strike against a city full of unarmed civilians - the US Air Force dropped a bomb equivalent to 20,000 tonnes of TNT, nicknamed "Little Boy" from a B-29 Superfortress bomber, nicknamed "Enola Gay", after the pilot's mother.

"Little Boy", the nickname spelling out the callous disrespect the United States of America has shown for the its international partners over the years and which isolates it and its FUKUS Axis friends (France-UK-US) and NATO allies from the hearts and minds of the international community today, murdered tens of thousands of civilians - men, women and children alike, of all ages, hospitalized patients, the disabled, the bedridden, the mentally and physically incapacitated, whole families, their homes and their pets. It was the world's first atomic terrorist war crime.

Three days later, as if the first strike were not enough, the USA performed the world's second atomic terrorist act, using a bomb nicknamed "Fat Man", destroying the city of Nagasaki. August 9, around 11.a.m. local time, as children played happily in parks, going down slides, running around chasing balls with their family dogs, their mothers chatting and smiling proudly, the USA was about to unleash what could rightfully be called the worst war crime in the history of humankind. The few survivors screamed in horror as these women and children were literally roasted alive, their skins hanging from their faces as the fortunate ones died on the spot.

For those who are about to waste their time trying to justify these horrendous, monstrous, inhuman acts, as early as January 1945 the Japanese authorities were suing for peace offering these terms:

* Surrender of all Japanese forces and arms, at home, on island possessions, and in occupied countries;
* Occupation of Japan and its possessions by Allied troops under American direction.
* Japanese relinquishment of all territory seized during the war, as well as Manchuria, Korea and Taiwan.
* Regulation of Japanese industry to halt production of any weapons and other tools of war.
* Release of all prisoners of war and internees.
* Surrender of designated war criminals.

These were the terms that were accepted by the Americans after Nagasaki. Conclusion: both bombs and acts of mass murder were totally unnecessary and the whole exercise was nothing more or less than a massive show-off to the Soviet Union, which had destroyed 90% of Hitler's Wehrmacht and which was about to appear as a giant on the world stage.

Even then the cruelty of the United States of America did not end: on August 14, on the eve of the surrender and with Japan virtually defenceless, the USA sent a thousand-bomber raid over Tokyo to firebomb the capital city.

The subsequent massacres of civilians in Vietnam, the terrorism, sabotage, murder attempts and acts of murder across the globe, the subversion, arming of groups to interfere in the affairs of sovereign nations, the arming and support for dictators, fascist murderous repressive regimes, and more recently, covert or even open support for terrorist groups to destabilize governments are the sickening sequel to this dawning of the age of Satan.

Today, the USA and its allies continue to support terrorists in Libya and Syria and today, they issued warnings of attacks against their interests in several points of the globe. One wonders why.
