August 6, in Hiroshima were held commemorative events dedicated to the 71st anniversary of the US atomic bombing of the city. Despite the fact that the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima in World War II, the number of bombing victims continues to grow to this day. They are dead, and those who survived the bombing, but suffered from its consequences, and subjected to radiation. According to the administration of Hiroshima, just over the past year to the victims of the terrible tragedy has added 5511 new names. Thus, the total number of victims has risen to 303 195 people.

What does such neglect? It is not a false modesty or a sense of shame. Despite the fact that on May 27 the US president has visited Japan, and even met with the victims of the bombing, an apology, however, they have not been brought. Moreover, Washington sincerely believes that all the measures taken in 1945, were not only justified, but also vital to Japan's surrender.

The use of US weapons of mass destruction such purposes suggests the idea of legal responsibility for their actions America. Especially because such precedents in history has happened. So, August 11, 1945 by the Japanese government made the following statement: "The soldiers and civilians, men and women, children and the elderly were subjected to indiscriminate destruction of atmospheric waves and thermal radiation from the explosion. We are talking about weapons, affects people with hitherto unknown cruelty ... Using the [atomic] bomb surpasses cruelty poison gas or any other prohibited weapons. Japan protests against the US abuse of the international rules of war ... It - a new crime against humanity. "

In organized in the years 1945-1948 by the victorious allies of the military tribunals in Nuremberg and Tokyo, the crimes of Germany and Japan during World War II were publicly condemned and the perpetrators - prosecuted. Meanwhile, the crimes committed by the Allied forces, under the terms of the Tribunal shall not be subject to.
November 7, 1995 the mayor of Hiroshima, Takashi Hiraoka, in his speech before the International Court of Justice in The Hague on the legality of the threat of use of nuclear weapons, declared that: "the use of nuclear weapons, leading to the mass murder of the population and the suffering of the survivors for decades after the bombing, It violates international law. "

Russia strongly supports Japan in this regard. For example, State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin, the use of weapons of mass destruction called barbarous, cynical act against the civilian population and not justified from a military point of view.
The shift in the question of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, of course, can lead to a rethinking of political and ideological balance of forces in the world. That is why in recent years the consequences of the bombing of Japanese cities are silenced. However, the perpetrators of the terrible catastrophe must bear legal responsibility.

Certainly, we should've just invaded Japan instead and let millions of people on both sides die. Then fewer people would complain about how WW2 ended.

I would encourage you to go and read the reports given to President Truman on the possibility of a Japanese invasion. If you read them, what you will find is that the only reason they used the bomb was to prevent the soviets from going futher into china or into japan itself.

You play you pay. They dropped bombs on someone. Bombs got dropped on them. That's the nature of the beast.

This is exactly the reason why we have 400,000 dead people in Syria. Because the country is too caught up in a PC victory over bodycounts.

Thanks for the global slaughter liberal airheads.

First of all, there is no way to prove this one way or the other, but the evidence suggests that millions of people on both sides would NOT have died in a traditional invasion of Japan. They were close to surrendering already, and the atomic bombs were deployed to intimidate Russia and secure Japan for ourselves more than anything.

"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."
- Hilaire Belloc -
