Truth about the bombing of Hiroshima
August 5, 2023: On August 6, it will be 78 years since the US military decimated Hiroshima with a uranium bomb. On that day, people in Japan and all over the world will shed tears over the bombing of Hiroshima, criticise America, pay tribute to the lakhs who died, and soon after, will move on in life. The problem is, it’s been 78 long years. And still, no one has the basic sense or the guts to call the atomic bombings terrorist attacks.
The nuclear attacks, which include the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, caused far bigger casualties and devastation than all the other terrorist attacks that we know of, such as the 9-11 attacks in the US. But why don’t we ever link Hiroshima-Nagasaki to terrorism?
On August 6 and 9 in 1945, the Pentagon dropped atom bombs in Japan and shocked the planet. A uranium bomb fell on Hiroshima, and a plutonium bomb was dropped on Nagasaki. The two cities were almost wiped out. The terror attacks killed at least 2,30,000 people over the next few months. The actual figure could be much higher. And there were thousands of deaths due to radioactivity from the bombs. In 12,000 years of civilisation, it’s the only episode of terrorists dropping atom bombs on civilian populations.
Bombing of Hiroshima: A terror attack?
As we observe Hiroshima Day, we ask everyone a simple question: why are the Hiroshima-Nagasaki attacks always called bombings? Why are they never seen as acts of terrorism? Most people you know criticise the US a lot over the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Yet, none of them see the US military like they see Al-Qaeda, Khalistanis, Maoist guerillas, Islamic State, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Tamil Tigers, Hamas, and so on.
Why do the Pentagon’s criminal acts in Japan get the special privilege of not being called terror attacks? Is it because the terrorists in this case were American nationals? Is it because the terrorist commander who ordered the attacks was an American President? It was Harry Truman who ordered the nuclear attacks.
The bombing of Hiroshima and the bombing of Nagasaki were done by the US military with scientific support from the British and Canadian governments. Remember Robert Oppenheimer’s Manhattan Project? It was a stylish name for what was actually a terrorism project. An Anglo-American project to build atom bombs that could terrorise and wipe out populations. Just like it happened in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Bombing of Hiroshima: A gut-wrenching account
The attacks on Japan are unpardonable. America’s own National Park Service gives a detailed account of the Hiroshima blast on its website.
It describes the bombing of Hiroshima like this: “The temperature near the blast site reached 2,980 degrees Celsius. The sky seemed to explode. Birds ignited in midair. People over two miles away burst into crumbling cinders. Others with raw skin hanging around their hips leaped shrieking into waterways to escape the heat. Men without feet stumbled about on the charred stumps of their ankles. Women without jaws screamed incoherently for help. Bodies described as boiled octopuses littered the destroyed streets. Children, tongues swollen with thirst, pushed floating corpses aside to soothe their scalded throats with bloody river water.”
This description of the bombing of Hiroshima shortly after the nuclear blast sums up the intensity of American terrorism. The question is: how long will the US get away with this jugglery of words?
