The Myth of
(actual badges worn by military personel)
"The war would have been over in two weeks
without the Russians entering and without the atomic bomb. The atomic bomb had
nothing to do with the end of the war at all." - Sept. 20, 1945, Gen. Curtis
"All acts of violence leave their imprint in the perpetrator,
the perpetrators ultimately will suffer violence equal
to that they have inflicted."
"It is my opinion that the use of this barbarous
weapon at Hiroshima and Nagasaki was of no material assistance in our war
against Japan. The Japanese were already defeated and ready to surrender
because of the effective sea blockade and the successful bombing with
conventional weapons. My own feeling is that in being the first to use it, we
had adopted an ethical standard common to the barbarians of the Dark Ages."-
Admiral William LeahyAn atomic bomb was dropped without
warning on the center of the Japanese city of Hiroshima. One hundred and forty
thousand people were killed, more than 95% of them

victims died of
radiation poisoning over the next few
Three days later another atomic bomb was dropped on Urakami
Cathedral in the city of
Nagasaki - a center of Portuguese and Dutch influence from the 16th through
19th centuries. On August 14, 1945 - five days after the Nagasaki bombing -
Radio Tokyo announced that the Japanese emperor had accepted the terms for
Americans at the time were told that the atomic bomb had
ended the war, even "saving" a
million lives that might have been lost if the Americans had been required to
invade mainland Japan. This historical myth justified the greatest
terroist attack in human history.
propaganda narrative took root
quickly becoming deeply embedded in
the American pysche. On
the 50th anniversary of this terrorist attack, this propaganda
narrative was reinforced in an
exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution on the Enola Gay, the plane that dropped
the first atomic bomb. The exhibit presented officially sanctioned
historical myth of the atomic
bombings, portraying those bombings as a necessary act.
patriotically correct for a
militarized country, the exhibit and the propaganda
narrative on which it was based
Smithsonian downplayed the entire event: saying only that the atomic bombs
"caused many tens of thousands of deaths"; that Hiroshima was "a definite
military target"; that use of the
atomic bombs "led to the immediate surrender of Japan and made unnecessary the
planned invasion of the Japanese
The truth is that
the United Soviet Socialist Republic's entry into the Pacific
war on August 8, two days after the
Hiroshima atomic bombing, caused Japan's capitulation.
The Enola Gay
exhibit repeated outright lies of
attempts to protect the civilian population: that "special leaflets were
dropped on Japanese cities" warning civilians to evacuate. The truth is that
atomic bomb warning leaflets were dropped on Japanese cities, but only
after Hiroshima and Nagasaki had been destroyed.
The truth is that the atomic bombings were unnecessary. A
million lives were not saved. McGeorge
Bundy, the man who first
popularized this figure, later confessed that he had pulled it out of thin
air in order to justify the bombings in a
1947 Harper's magazine essay he had ghostwritten for
Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson.
The bomb was dropped, as J. Robert Oppenheimer,
scientific director of the
Manhattan Project, said in November 1945, on "an essentially defeated
Harry S. Truman
used the atomic bomb on August 6 after negotiating peace on August 3 primarily
to prevent the Soviets from sharing in the occupation of Japan. These
unpleasant historical facts were
censored from the 1995 Smithsonian exhibit, an action that should trouble every
American. An officially sanctioned government myth distorts
history threating democracy and
corrupting the truth of actual reality.
After 911 it became
critically important that Americans know the truth about the atomic bombings.
The myths surrounding Hiroshima have made it
possible for the 'defense' establishment to argue that atomic bombs are
legitimate weapons that belong in America's
The Soul of America was handed
over to Satan on the day that America did the bidding of the
Syndicate of the Soulless and dropped an atomic
bomb on the only Christian community in Japan slaughtering 64,000 helpless
people, mostly women and children.

"For the Little Boy the detonation heights should correspond
to a pressure of 5 psi, a height of the Mach-stem of 100 feet and a magnitude
of detonation of either 5,000 or 15,000 tons of H.E. equivalent. With present
knowledge the fuse setting corresponding to 5,000 tons equivalent would be used
but fusing for the other should be available in case more is known at the time

Hiroshima - This is an important army depot and port of
embarkation in the middle of an urban industrial area. It is a good radar
target and it is such a size that a large part of the city could be extensively
damaged. There are adjacent hills which are likely to produce a focusing effect
which would considerably increase the blast damage. Due to rivers it is not a
good incendiary target. (Classified as an AA Target)
The feasibility of
following the raid by an incendiary mission was discussed. This has the
great advantage that the enemies' fire fighting ability will probably be
paralyzed by the gadget so that a very serious conflagration should be capable
of being started.
It was agreed that psychological factors in the target
selection were of great importance. Two aspects of this are (1) obtaining the
greatest psychological effect against Japan and (2) making the initial use
sufficiently spectacular for the importance of the weapon to be internationally
recognized when publicity on it is released." - from the minutes of the second
meeting of the Target Committee Los Alamos, May 10-11, 1945
On July 26,
Truman and other allied leaders issued the Potsdam Declaration, an
ultimatum outlining terms of surrender for Japan.
MEMORANDUM ON THE
USE OF S-1 BOMB:
Ever since I have been in touch with this program I
have had a feeling that before the bomb is actually used against Japan that
Japan should have some preliminary warning for say two or three days in advance
of use. The position of the US as a great humanitarian nation and the fair play
attitude of our people generally is responsible in the main for this feeling.
During recent weeks I have also had the feeling very definitely that the
Japanese government may be searching for some opportunity which they could use
as a medium of surrender. Undersecretary of the Navy Ralph A. Bard, June 27,
TO: General Carl Spaatz Commanding General US Army Strategic Air
The 509 Composite Group, 20th Air Force will deliver its
first special bomb as soon as weather will permit visual bombing after about 3
August 1945 on one of the targets: Hiroshima, Kokura, Niigata and Nagasaki. To
carry military and civilian scientific personnel from the War Department to
observe and record the effects of the explosion of the bomb, additional
aircraft will accompany the airplane carrying the bomb. The observing planes
will stay several miles distant from the point of impact of the bomb.
Additional bombs will be delivered on the above targets as soon as made
ready by the project staff. Further instructions will be issued concerning
targets other than those listed above.
Discussion of any and all
information concerning the use of the weapon against Japan is reserved to the
Secretary of War and the President of the US. No communiques on the subject or
releases of information will be issued by Commanders in the field without
specific prior authority. Any news stories will be sent to the War Department
for specific clearance.
The foregoing directive is issued to you by
direction and with the approval of the Secretary of War and of the Chief of
Staff, USA. It is desired that you personally deliver one copy of this
directive to General MacArthur and one copy to Admiral Nimitz for their
information. THOS. T. HANDY General, G.S.C. Acting Chief of Staff
world will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, a military
base. That was because we wished in this first attack to avoid, insofar as
possible, the killing of civilians." - Harry Truman (oops! did somebody forgot

Operation ThunderclapMuch like Hiroshima Dresden had no military value as a
target. For centuries, it had been a center of German cultural heritage - a
heritage that had everything to do with positive developments in human
civilization, and nothing to do with the Nazi disease that had been imposed on
Germany by the Anglo-American financial elite.
Dresden was chosen for destruction as
an act of TERRORISM, directed,
not against the Nazis, per se, but the German people and as a warning to the
The firebombing of Dresden, creating a raging inferno of
destruction that slaughtered more that 100,000 human beings, was conceived and
directed by a group of social psychiatrists at the Strategic Bombing Survey,
affiliated with the Special Operations Command of the Office of Strategic
Services (OSS). This group was effectively overseen by the head of the British
Psychological Warfare Directorate, Brig. Gen. John Rawlings Rees, the director
the Tavistock Clinic in London, which, since the 1920s, had served as a center
of psychological warfare operations of the British Empire.
The team at
the Strategic Bombing Survey, which included a host of U.S.-based Tavistock
operatives, such as Kurt Lewin, Rensis Likert, and Margaret Mead, theorized
that the terror inflicted on the German population through the "message of
Dresden" would break their will to
fight, leaving them fearful, frightened, and disorganized. They projected that
it would have a lasting effect on Germany, removing that nation from among the
great states of Europe, making it a permanently psychologically scarred entity.
The German people, they argued, would be made to realize that "all that is
German" could be wiped away, all of its culture and history, in an instant, as
it were, by powers who would oppose an assertive future Germany.
of the main techniques for breaking morale through a `strategy of terror'
consists in exactly this tactic--keep the person hazy as to where he stands and
what just he may expect. If, in addition, frequent vacillations between severe
disciplinary measures and promises of good treatment, together with the
spreading of contradictory news, make the cognitive structure of this situation
utterly unclear, then the individual may cease to know when a particular plan
would lead toward or away from his goal. Under these conditions, even those
individuals who have definite goals and are ready to take risks will be
paralyzed with severe inner conflicts in regard to what to do." - Kurt Lewin
As the pilots and their crews came to realize what they had done - the
creation of a raging inferno, burning civilian targets and civilians - many
returned to their bases horrified. The firestorm was visible up to a distance
of 300 kilometers.
This demonstration of military potency retained its
psychological usefulness even after the end of the Crimean conference. When the
Soviets entered Dresden they were able
to see firsthand what horrible destruction the Anglo-American air forces were
able to cause to a city far removed from their bases in a single
"The bombing of Dresden
had little or nothing to do with the war against Nazi Germany: it was an
American British message for
Vissarionovich Stalin, a message that cost the lives of tens of thousands
of people." - Jacques R. Pauwels
At the instruction of the psyops
warriors, the crews had not been fully briefed on the
mission. Now, they were greeted by
teams of psychologists and
others, who would profile their responses to the terror they had unleashed;
they were told, as the crews who later dropped, unnecessarily, atomic bombs on
two Japanese cities, that it would "shorten the war."
Ground Zero: Urakami Cathedral,
Nagasaki At 11:02 a.m. on August 9, 1945 an
all-Christian bomber crew dropped a plutonium bomb, on Nagasaki, Japan.
Nagasaki was attacked with a bomb made of plutonium, named after Pluto, god of
the underworld earlier known as Hades. The most toxic substance known to
science, developed for mass destruction, plutonium is so lethal it contaminates
everything nearby forever.
Nagasaki was the Christian center of Japan
and "ground zero" was the largest cathedral in the Far East, Urakami
Cathedral. Nagasaki is famous in the history of Japanese Christianity as it had
the largest concentration of baptized Christians in all of
Japan. It was the megachurch of its time, with 12,000
bombardier looking through his bomb site 31,000 feet overhead identified the
cathedral through a break in the
clouds and ordered the drop.
At 11:02 a.m., during morning mass,
Nagasaki Christianity was boiled, evaporated and carbonized in a scorching,
satanic, radioactive fireball that exploded 500 meters above the
cathedral. As it turned out,
"ground zero" for "Fat Man" was the surviving center of Japanese Christianity
which had survived two centuries of persecution.
What the Japanese
Imperial government could not do in over 200 years of persecution, destroy
Japanese Christianity, American Christians did in nine seconds. Even today
those who are members of Christian churches in Japan represent a fraction of 1
percent of the population, and the average attendance at Christian worship
services is 30.
