August 6, 1945 – A dark day in the history of the world, which no country or citizen of this earth wants to see. This was the time when mankind realized this destructive power for the first time.

Why nuclear attack?

During World War II, the US attacked Japan with nuclear weapons to express its amazement and win the war. 77 years ago on this day on August 6, 1945, America shamed mankind by attacking an important Japanese city of Hiroshima with an atomic bomb. The Japanese people are still suffering the consequences of this attack by America 8 decades ago and till date mankind has not been able to sit there again.

That dreadful day 77 years ago…

The first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan on 6 August 1945. This caused an unimaginable and terrible devastation in Hiroshima over an area of ​​13 square kilometers.

Even after six consecutive months of intense strategic fire on 67 Japanese cities, the Japanese government was ignoring the final warning given by the Potsdam Declaration. President Harry S. On August 6, 1945, on Monday, August 6, 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb named “Little Boy” on the city of Hiroshima by Truman’s executive order. On the third day of this devastation, the US again dropped an atomic bomb named “Fat Man” on Nagasaki on 9 August 1945.

At 8:09 am US Air Force Colonel Paul Tibbetts announced on the intercom of his B-29 aircraft ‘Enola Gay’ ‘Put on your goggles’. Inside this plane was a blue-white 3.5 meter long, 4-ton nuclear warhead ‘Little Boy’.

At exactly 8:13 a.m., a message from Colonel Paul Tibbetts arrived on the headphones of ‘Enola Gay’s Bombardier Major Tomas Freby,’ saying, ‘It’s all yours now.’ At 8:15 am, an atomic bomb named ‘Little Boy’ was dropped on the city of Hiroshima. It took 43 seconds for Little Boy to get off the Enola Gay. However, at the same time, due to strong wind, its exact position changed and it landed at ‘Shima Surgical Clinic’, about 250 meters away from its target ‘Aao Bridge’. Due to this sudden horrific explosion, the temperature there suddenly reached close to 1 million centigrade.

20,000 people died, in an instant everything on earth disappeared

In an instant, everything on Earth disappeared except the buildings there. The blast was so strong that the windows of every building within a radius of 15 km from ground zero were shattered. In the city of Hiroshima, about two-thirds of the buildings collapsed like a pack of cards in a second.

The incident killed 22,000 people in a matter of seconds, and during the first two to four months after the bomb was dropped, an estimated 90,000–166,000 in Hiroshima and 60,000–80,000 in Nagasaki were killed as a direct result. An area of ​​3 square miles where the bomb was dropped was completely destroyed.

Who took the decision to attack the atomic bomb..?

Henry Truman, 68, was President of the United States from 1945 to 1953. US Presidents Henry Truman and Leslie Groves agreed to use the atomic bomb while Britain was losing World War II.

The US President in his statement called this first bombing a warning. Lieutenant General Leslie Groves (Lieutenant General Leslie Groves) who was then the director of the nuclear top secret Manhattan Project.

Japan did not attack anyone during World War II. Truman also warned Japan. Truman’s advisers were concerned that 500,000 American soldiers would lose their lives if they invaded Japan. With that estimate in mind, Truman allowed Japan to drop atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It killed 400,000 people and eventually Japan surrendered.

The deadly atomic bomb attack on Japan was America’s most brutal and controversial act, with Truman defending it, saying “it was necessary to ease the long agony of war and save millions of American lives.” We would have taken such action to the extent of Japan’s ability. The fight was over.” Will stay

Where did the script for the US-Japan protests come from?

Today’s close friends, Japan and America’s bitterest experiences, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the roots of World War II were sown on December 7, 1941. On this day, Japan attacked the Navy base of Pearl Harbor in the Hawaiian Islands of America and it continued to attract the attention of the United States, which the US responded with a nuclear attack in 4 years.

Japan and America learned lessons from Pearl Harbor v Hiroshima. Barack Obama visited Hiroshima during his visit to Japan. He also apologized for dropping the atomic bomb. In response, Japanese Prime Minister Shizo Abe visited Pearl Harbor last month. Through this visit, both the leaders want to give a message to the world that war should not happen again. Many Americans still believe that America’s nuclear attack on Japan was wrong, but America’s desire to become a world leader has not improved to this day. If a country turns a blind eye to America, it threatens to use its military might.

Japan is still under US occupation..!

The interesting thing is that even today the approval and disapproval of America is very important in the defense decisions taken by Japan. After suffering the fatal consequences of atomic bombs in World War II, Japan surrendered to the US and a ‘security treaty’ was signed between the two countries. Under which the US resolved to adopt a pacifist constitution and provide security in exchange for maintaining a large military presence in Japan. The US has more than 80 US military facilities in Japan. More US service members are permanently stationed in Japan than in any other foreign country.

Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution prohibits Japan from establishing an army or settling international disputes by war or violence of any kind. However, on the other hand, under Article-5, the US is obliged to defend Japan. Article 6 explicitly gives the US the right to send troops to Japanese soil if attacked by another country.
