The dropping of nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and then Nagasaki was more the first shot of the Cold War than a necessary action to compel Japan to lay down its arms and surrender in the final days of WW II. It is a big and unremovable stain on the bloody resume of U.S. imperialism and its ruling circles. We shouldn’t allow ‘ole’ Harry from Fulton Missouri to escape responsibility for this horrific and singularly unique atrocity. It happened on his watch and he made the final decision, even if he was’t the only decision maker.
