Astăzi la ora 0815 reprezentanţi a 74 de naţiuni au comemorat lansarea primei bombe atomice asupra unei ţinte inamice, USA fiind şi ea prezentă. Japonezii se plîng şi deplîng atacul, lumea civilizată idem. Ipocrizia e mare din două motive:
1. Japonia nu spune cum a omorît milione de civili în războaiul ce l-a purtat fără încetare împotriva Coreii şi Chinei, înainte de Al Doilea Război Mondial, cît şi împotriva altor naţiuni ocupate în timpul Celui De-al Doilea Război Mondial. Nu mai punem la socoteala asasinarea prizonierilor de război, o onoare pentru armata japoneză;
2. Lumea vrea să interzică armele de nimicire în masă, dar nu face mai nimic să interzică RĂZBOIUL. E moral să te înarmezi cu armament clasic ultrasofisticat ce distruge ţinte umane rapid, eficient şi precis. E moral să faci cercetare în domeniul armamentului, să vinzi arme, atîta vreme cît nu le vinzi unor ţări aflate în conflict. CHIAR e moral să faci asta? E, mai ales dacă eşti o naţiune mare şi bogată.
Vă las pe dumneavoastră să găsiţi care sunt acele naţiuni morale de pe planeta noastră.

Japanese man who survived two atomic bombs dies
A Japanese man who survived two nuclear bombs has died, aged 93.

Tsutomu Yamaguchi was on a business trip to Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, when the first atomic bomb was dropped on the city. Shocked at the devastation, he decided to return to his home town, Nagasaki, arriving shortly before that city was similarly levelled by the „Fat Man” bomb three days later.
Yamaguchi, who died of stomach cancer in Nagasaki on Monday, only began to speak publicly about his experiences after his second son died of cancer in 2005. He had been an infant when the second bomb was dropped.
An outspoken critic of nuclear weapons, he told his interviewers, „The reason that I hate the atomic bomb is because of what it does to the dignity of human beings.
„I cannot understand why the world cannot understand the agony of the nuclear bombs,” he added. „How can they keep developing these weapons?” In the film, which was screened at the United Nations, Yamaguchi recounts how he was stepping down from a tram around two miles from the hypocentre of the bomb that detonated above Hiroshima. He was temporarily blinded, lost the hearing in one ear and was badly burned on much of his upper body.
Upon his return to his engineering company in Nagasaki, Yamaguchi was recounting his experiences to his supervisor when the second bomb was dropped.
He later went completely bald, suffered radiation poisoning and experienced medical complications for much of the rest of his life.
Around 140,000 people died in the bombing of Hiroshima, while the figure for Nagasaki is estimated at around 80,000. Six days after the second attack, Japan announced its surrender to the Allies.
