On the 75th anniversary of when the United States dropped the world’s first atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima, killing some 140,000 people, we speak with Hideko Tamura Snider, who was 10 years old when she survived the attack. “The shaking was so huge,” she recalls. “I remember the sensation, the color and the smell like yesterday.”
Tamura Snider describes her harrowing journey through a shattered city, suffering radiation sickness following the attack, and her message to President Trump.

NY Times: Hiroshima Atomic Bomb Survivors Pass Their Stories to a New Generation
REBUTTAL BY Today marks the 70th anniversary of the genocide at Hiroshima, Japan. Since that demonic day, three entire generations of Americans have been fed the conscience-soothing falsehood that the dropping of the Atom Bombs saved lives by shortening the war. It was a “humanitarian” thing, you see? Like everything else about World War II, this too is a big lie.Like FDR before him, Dirty Harry Truman also had no regard for human life. Japan had actually been trying hard, via “neutral” Soviet back channels, to negotiate a surrender with the United States, just not unconditionally as Truman demanded. Little did the Japanese know that the double-dealing Soviet Union was already committed to join the war in East Asia, as part of a dirty deal reached between FDR, Churchill and Stalin during the Yalta Conference of 1945.With much of Japan already in ruins, and with its industrial capacity just about wiped out, Japan would have fallen like a ripe fruit within a matter of weeks. Add in a Soviet entry into the Asian theater and Japan could have capitulated within days! So let’s put to rest this rubbish about “the atom bomb was the only way to get Japan to surrender.”1- An unnecessary war, engineered by FDR in the first place, ended with the unnecessary atomic bombings of Japanese civilians. 2- Slimes Headline: Bloody bastard Truman warns of a ‘Rain of Ruin’ if Japan doe not surrender unconditionally. The bombing itself and its protracted radioactive aftermath killed, conservatively, 100-150,000 people in Hiroshima and then an additional 60–80,000 in Nagasaki. Half of the deaths occurred immediately, mostly from direct annihilation or severe burns. Countless more died of cancer in years to come. Just 3 days after the bombing of Hiroshima, and only hours before the 2nd bombing at Nagasaki, the man that Truman and the U.S. press affectionately referred to as ‘Uncle Joe” broke the Soviet-Japanese Non Aggression Pact of 1941 and declared war upon an already beaten Japan. Thanks Joe; we couldn’t have won it without you! As conspired and agreed upon at “The Big 3” Conference in Yalta (January 1945), Stalin stabbed Japan in the back and brought Communist power to Asia. This totally dispels the LIE that the A-Bomb was necessary to finish off Japan. Facing what Truman calls “a Rain of Ruin”, Japan, like Germany before her, had to make a choice between unrestrained civilian genocide at American and now Soviet hands, or unconditional surrender and occupation. It should be noted that General Douglas Macarthur felt that the atomic bombing was unnecessary, Macarthur later stated, “My staff was unanimous in believing that Japan was on the point of collapse and surrender.”Japan surrendered on August 15, ’45. (VJ / Victory in Japan Day)For the Globalists, the atomic bombings will later serve an important strategic purpose. The constant threat of “nuclear war” will, in the coming years, do much to frighten and consolidate the nations of the world into political, economic, and military alliances. The Global fear of “the Bomb” will become very useful for The New World Order.
General Macarthur did not see the need for Truman’s monstrous “Rain of Ruin”:“My staff was unanimous in believing that Japan was on the point of collapse and surrender.”
