The effects of this rivalry was america dropping bombs onto Japan and Japan was nearly destroyed. Because of this, it made America go in to a war with Japan and Europe got involved too.
And that is this: The war would have ended soon without the atomic bombs, and thus there wouldn't have been a bloody American invasion of Japan. American intelligence, with the full knowledge of President Truman, was fully aware of Japan's desperate search for ways to honorably surrender weeks before the order was given for the Holocaust that was Hiroshima.
American intelligence data, revealed in the s, shows that a large-scale US invasion planned for no sooner than November 1, would have been unnecessary. Japan was working on peace negotiations with the Allies through its Moscow ambassador in July of Truman knew of these developments, the US having broken the Japanese code years earlier, and all of Japan's military and diplomatic messages were being intercepted.
On July 13,Foreign Minister Togo said: That concession was refused by the US, the Japanese continued negotiating for peace, and the bombs were dropped.
And after the war, the emperor remained in place.
So what were the real reasons for 1 the refusal to accept Japan's offer of surrender and 2 the decision to proceed with the bombings? The Japanese were already defeated and ready to surrender because of the effective sea blockade and the successful bombing with conventional weapons.
My own feeling is that in being the first to use it, we had adopted an ethical standard common to the barbarians of the Dark Ages. Truman proceeded with the plans to use the bombs, but he never officially ordered the Nagasaki bomb that followed Hiroshima only three days later.
There are a number of factors that helped Truman make his decision. Scientific curiosity certainly was a major factor for the mass slaughter of the Nagasaki community. The decision to use both bombs had obviously been made well in advance. Indeed, Russia did declare war on August 8 and was marching across Manchuria when Nagasaki was incinerated.
The US didn't want Japan surrendering to anybody else, especially a future enemy, so the first nuclear "messages" of the infantile Cold War were sent.
Russia indeed received less of the spoils of war, and the two superpowers were mired in mutual moral bankruptcy and economic near-bankruptcy for the rest of the century. Hundreds of thousands suffered agonizing burns, leukemia and infections for the rest of their shortened lives, and generations of the survivor's progeny inherited horrible radiation-induced illnesses, cancers and premature death.
What has been covered up is the fact that 12 American Navy pilots, their existence well known to the US command, were incinerated in the Hiroshima jail on Aug. The 75, Nagasaki victims were virtually all innocent civilians, except for the inhabitants of an allied POW camp near Nagasaki's ground zero.
They were incinerated, carbonized, then evaporated, by a scientific experiment carried out by obedient, unaware soldiers. But somehow we still hang on to our shaky "my country right or wrong" patriotism, desperately wanting to believe that our nation only works for peace, justice and democracy and not mainly for capitalism.
While it is true that the US military has faced down a few despots, with natural heroism and sacrifice from the dead and now dying American soldiers, more often than not our methods of rationalizing the atrocities of war are identical to those of the "godless communists" or "evil empire" on the other side of the battle line.
August 6 and 9, are just two more examples of the brutalization of innocent civilians in "total war," whether it is called "regretful collateral damage" or "friendly fire.
And then we need to start accepting the consequences of our leadership's actions, like the courageous and honorable people we claim to be. Doing what is right for the whole of humanity for a change, rather than just what is advantageous for us over-privileged Americans, would be real honor, real patriotism and an essential start toward real peace.AS EASTER APPROACHES, when Christians reflect on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Holocaust Hoax will be in our faces once again.
