71st anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing. A dream of the mind? But it creates monsters
The continuation. The begining http://vestnikkavkaza.ru/analytics/K-71-godovshchine-bombardirovki-KHirosimy-Son-razuma-No-on-ved-rozhdaet-chudovishch.html
"The American atomic bombing was the only way to force the Japanese government to peace,’’ Michael Bom, who positions himself as an independent, wrote in an article devoted to the anniversary of Japan's surrender. Is our American colleague right?
Why did Truman inform Stalin in Tehran in 1943, in Yalta in February 1945, and even at Potsdam in July 1945 that the American side expected confirmation from the USSR to join the war with Japan, if a successful test of the atomic bomb had already been carried out by the United States?
"We desperately need the help of the Soviet Union in the war with Japan after the end of the war in Europe,’’ a special booklet that had been prepared for US President Roosevelt for the Yalta Conference in February 1945 informed. At the very beginning of 1945, the conference in Yalta preceded the meeting between the chiefs of staffs of the US and the UK in Malta. It was stated that the war with Japan may be concluded 18 months after the defeat of Germany.
General MacArthur, the commander of US forces in the Far East in 1944, believed that US troops should not land on the islands of Japan until the Red Army started military actions in Manchuria.
For example, Winston Churchill admitted in his fundamental research ‘‘World War II’’ that it would be wrong to believe that the atomic bomb determined the fortune of Japan.
Emperor Hirohito was in a shelter when he received the information about the use of the atomic bomb two days later: "It is impossible to continue the war if the enemy uses these kind of weapons. But it is necessary to stop the war immediately in order to achieve favorable conditions."
The commander of the 2nd United Army, whose headquarters was based in Hiroshima, Field Marshal Hata, believed that the war should continue. The Japanese Imperial Headquarters supported this opinion. It continued preparations for combat operations in the Japanese islands – in Manchuria and Korea.
It is known that 94% of major plants in the suburbs of Hiroshima were not damaged and railway traffic was restored in 48 hours. According to Japanese servicemen, Hiroshima suffered major damage caused by the massive air raids, but no more than other Japanese cities.
According to Japanese officers, the atomic bombing caused even greater hatred for the Americans. In addition, the Japanese bombing pushed acceleration of the implementation of ‘Project N’, aimed at creating its own nuclear weapons. And it was supposed to be completed in 6 months. It could have significantly changed the military capabilities and negotiating positions of Imperial Japan.
It then became known on August 9th 1945 that the Soviet Union declared war against Japan. At an emergency meeting of the Supreme Council for the Management of War Affairs, Japanese Prime Minister Kantaro Suzuki said: "The war against the Soviet Union pushes us to the wall, so it is impossible to continue the war."
And another interesting fact – the Japanese newspaper Ji Ji Simpo wrote on August 9th 1950: "When the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, the military group of Japan continued to resist, while the performance of the Soviet Union forced it to capitulate. According to the results, the actions by the Soviet Union against Japan played a huge role in achieving peace."
"Propaganda and the US authorities and Chiang Kai-shek are trying to nullify the power of the Red Army with the help of two atomic bombs. If the atomic bomb could have determined the outcome of the war, then why did the USA ask the Soviet Union to join the war? Why didn't Japan surrender when the two atomic bombs were dropped? The joining of the war by the the Soviet Union determined the surrender of Japan," Mao Tse Tung noted.
General Dwight Eisenhower noted in a conversation with the United States Secretary of War that "...our country should not shock world public opinion by the fact that we used an atomic bomb, as this weapon lost the right to American means for saving lives." The Commander of the Allied Forces in the war against Japan, General MacArthur, acknowledged that "there was no necessity’’ for the use of nuclear weapons.
According to many researchers, the lives of hundreds of thousands people who were killed in Hiroshima and Nagasaki were sacrificed by the United States at the altar of the Cold War."
A group of Japanese scientists led by Nobel laureate physicist Hideki Yukawa noted in the ‘White Paper book on the consequences of the atomic bombing’ in the section ‘The victim – Japan, the enemy – the Soviet Union,’ noted that the use of atomic bombs by the United States was not so much the last action of the World War II, that it was the first operation of intimidation on the threshold of the beginning of the cold war against the Soviet Union.
So who really played the hypocrite and manipulated the facts? And why? Despite the availability of historical data, statements by US officials 70 years ago, as well as closer to our times about the use of atomic weapons in 1945 in the war against Japan, and in Europe. The most disgusting fact is that the Japanese consider that Hiroshima was bombed by the Soviet Union.
Efforts to impose ‘an alternative history’ (the version by the US) without countermeasures bring the inevitable results. That's the purpose of its authors.
What is this if not a dream that creates monsters!? Despite the fact that Francisco Goya used this phrase once in relation to art, it becomes particularly relevant for modern society, more and more sinking in its postmodern gust in limitless consumerism, beyond which it is possible to impose the biggest misconceptions in an increasingly controlled flow of information. This is a very dangerous condition, which can lead to the loss of the self-preservation instinct. We should make a lot of efforts to create a force capable of resisting such destructive tendencies.
