Have people forgotten so soon the atomic bombs that finally stopped World War II?
Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected President four times. He started the Atomic Bomb Project that on August 6. 1945 was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan. Japan refused to surrender so three days later, August 9, 1945 President Truman ordered another Atomic Bomb dropped on Nagasaki that was more powerful than the one dropped on Hiroshima. The estimates of those who were killed with those two bombs is 129,000 to 226,000 people.
It took Japan six days after Nagasaki and nine days after Hiroshima to surrender. Some people are critical of America for dropping the two atomic bombs. They are making a huge mistake. The Japanese rulers refused to surrender for nine days after Hiroshima. If the second bomb wasn’t dropped Japan might not have surrendered on August 15th and up to a million more American’s would have died to make that happen.
World War II killed 1.25 million Americans in battles. It took a huge effort by military and civilians alike to defeat Japan. America had built almost a hundred aircraft carriers. and thousands of aircraft at a huge cost in lives, money, materials and time. Were the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki worth it? Yes, yes, yes, emphatically yes.
In February 1945, Prince Fumimaro Konoe advised the Emperor_of_Japan that defeat was inevitable, and urged him to abdicate. He refused. After Hiroshima he still refused. After Nagasaki he still refused and for six more days after Nagasaki he refused and on the sixth day he finally stropped refusing and surrendered. It was the best thing Japan ever did. Since Nagasaki and because of Nagasaki Japan has prospered as much as or more than any other nation would have after their inhuman killings in WWII.
Russia detonated on October 30, 1961, a nuclear bomb 4,000 times greater than the Hiroshima bomb. The shock wave traveled twice around the world.
The two atomic bombs of 1945 were the most fearsome bombs ever used in a war. They would have obliterated Israel which was not even founded until three years after Hiroshima, on May 14, 1948. Read that again. Every person and every building in Israel would disappear in Iran drops just one modern nuclear warhead/bomb on Israel. Can Israel take that chance? Obama believes so much in the Islamic state of Iran that he took a chance Iran would not bomb or rocket Israel. That’s the most foolish idea any mortal has had. Of course Iran will use nuclear weapons against Israel. That’s as certain as tomorrows sunrise.
One bomb would destroy every building in Israel with the fireball, the blast or the firestorm. Everyone in Israel would die. That’s not an exaggeration. It’s not hyperbole, it’s a fact.
Russia detonated the Tsar Bomba with a yield of 50 megatons which is equivalent to about 1,570 times the combined energy of the bombs that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Unless Iran is defeated and the leadership crushed, in ten years Israel will be obliterated because of Barack Obama’s foolish agreement with Iran.
