Committing war crimes is so much in the blood of the American establishment and its surrogate, the Zionist state of Israel that it hardly needs proving. August 6 marks the anniversary of the US dropping the first of two atomic bombs on Japan 69 years ago. Three days later another one was dropped on Nagasaki.

The first atomic bomb ever dropped on human beings on August 6, 1945 was on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. The Americans dropped the bomb knowing full well it will cause massive civilian casualties. It did. The bomb killed more than 140,000 in the first flush of release of radiation. Those that were killed were the lucky ones; they were simply incinerated by the heat of the atomic bomb. Hundreds of thousands of others suffered horrible burns and died a slow, agonizing death.
Three days later, the American repeated the dastardly crime by dropping another bomb on the city of Nagasaki. Again hundreds of thousands of innocent people were burnt alive and millions more suffered for decades later.
Neither Hiroshima nor Nagasaki were industrial or military cities. They had no significance beyond the millions of people that lived in them. The Americans deliberately used the most horrible weapon the human mind has produced in order to terrorise the Japanese government.
The American establishment has stubbornly maintained that the dropping of these two most horrible bombs hastened the end of the Second World War. This is a complete lie. The Japanese were already discussing the terms of surrender and would have agreed to the terms within the next few days or weeks.
The Americans dropped the bombs because they wanted to make a horrible example of the Japanese. In any case, they were part of the 'yellow'race; not the white race like the Germans or Russians.
American racism in dropping the two atomic bombs 69 years ago is being repeated by the zionists in Occupied Palestine today. The zionists repeatedly attack and murder innocent Palestinians, their latest bout of bloodletting being the nearly one-month assault on besieged Gaza where almost 2,000 people, almost all of them civilians have been murdered in cold blood. At least one-third of those murdered include children.
The zionists have also targeted hospitals, schools and mosques. Some hospitals have been destroyed and others like Shifa Hospital are so short of medicines that it cannot look after the thousands of injured brought to the hospital. The zionists have also destroyed the only power plant in Gaza thereby depriving hospitals of electrical power. They are forced to use generators but lack of fuel prevents them from providing badly needed services.
Many babies have died in incubators. The wounded that are being transported to hospitals in the West Bank are being stopped and delayed so long at Israeli checkpoints that many have died there. Others arrive in the West Bank with their wounds so badly festered that their legs/arms etc have to be amputated. These people were sent to the West Bank to save the very limbs that were amputated.
There will be no peace in the world unless the zionist war criminals and their financiers and enablers in the west, especially in the US are brought to justice.
