That, Parishioners, is Japanese.

It is dull –

but there are more important things:

The Hiroshima Experiment
Hiroshima – 6 August 1945


Nagasaki – 9 August 1945

Nagasaki - before

Lest We Forget

 

The Atomic bombings of_Hiroshima and Nagasaki

In the history of warfare, nuclear weapons have been used twice, both during the closing days of World War II. The first event occurred on the morning of 6 August 1945, when the United States dropped a uranium gun-type device code-named “Little Boy” on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. The second event occurred three days later when, again, the United States dropped a plutonium implosion-type device code-named “Fat Man” on the city of Nagasaki. These bombings resulted in the immediate deaths of around 120,000 people and even more over time.

Plans for more atomic attacks on Japan

The United States expected to have another atomic bomb ready for use in the third week of August, with three more in September and a further three in October. On August 10, Major General Leslie Groves, military director of the Manhattan Project, sent a memorandum to General of the Army George Marshall, Chief of Staff of the United States Army, in which he wrote that “the next bomb . . . should be ready for delivery on the first suitable weather after 17 or 18 August.”

 

On the same day, Marshall endorsed the memo. “The problem now [13 August] is whether or not, assuming the Japanese do not capitulate, to continue dropping them every time one is made and shipped out there or whether to hold them . . . and then pour them all on in a reasonably short time. Not all in one day, but over a short period. And that also takes into consideration the target that we are after. In other words, should we not concentrate on targets that will be of the greatest assistance to an invasion rather than industry, morale, psychology, and the like? Nearer the tactical use rather than other use.”

Now let’s spare a though for those hippocrites that made the whole thing possible
