Why has the U.S. government never apologized for Hiroshima and Nagasaki?


Recommended Posts

Because the truth is too harsh for the public to know.

The atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which people were made to believe that the US used to end the WWII with much less casualities for both the US and Japan, not only failed to do so, but in fact it was a big lie and they were intended for human experiments.

Truman knew ABombs would never be needed to end the War. He was looking down on Japanese as beasts, and this played a big role in his decision as shown in the timeline below:

(1) On September 18, 1944, FDR met Churchill in Hyde Park, New York to make the Hyde Park Agreement for collaboration, control and use of atomic bombs. In FDR’s second house, they secretly agreed that the ABombs “should be used against Japan,” and not against Germany. (PREM3/139/9)

(2) Following the surrender of Nazi Germany on May 7, 1945, Churchill kept on urging Truman to hold the Potsdam meeting to end the WWII as soon as possible. However, Truman kept on postponing it until the first ABomb test day on July 16, 1945. The Potsdam meeting was scheduled to be held on the following day, July 17.

(3) On May 8, 1945, US summoned Japan to accept “unconditional surrender.” (The idea of unconditional surrender was FDR’s idea, and was first mentioned at Casablanca Conference on January 24, 1943.)

(4) However, the “unconditional surrender” is a term used for an army but not for a country. It has no definition in International Law, and under the Law of War, “unconditional surrender” in the sense used before the modern period could never be established legally in the 20th century. Thus the term bewildered not only Japan but everyone else including US law philosophers, US generals like Eisenhower, or even Churchill. (After the War, a world’s leading philosopher of law and International Law, Hans Kelsen, who taught at University of Harvard and California, Berkeley said with a big laugh that there is NO WAY Japan as a COUNTRY had accepted “unconditional surrender.”)

(5) Joseph Grew, the former ambassador to Japan suggested from his experiences to Truman on May 28, 1945 that if the US agrees to keep the Emperor, Japan would surrender immediately.

(6) Pursuant to the Quebec Agreement (August 19, 1943), which imposed restrictions on US’s use of atomic bombs without prior consent by Britain, Truman requested Churchill at the beginning of June 1945 to sign in consent to use of ABombs on Japan. Churchill signed this agreement “Operational Use of Tube Alloys” on July 1. Note that neither FDR nor Truman had ever asked Britain for the same consent for Germany.

(7) Stimson agreed to Grew's idea and proposed it to the President on June 16, 1945. MacArthur also wrote that the Japanese would fight till the last person if the US would not promise to preserve the Emperor. Later, only Byrnes, who newly came to the office on July 3, 1945 disagreed and opposed.

(8) The Imperial Council of Military Leaders (????????) in Japan passed a resolution to negotiate terms of surrender through the Soviets on June 22, 1945, without any knowledge of the US ABombs. The US found Japan started this negotiation in the same month of June 1945, and Omar Bradley, the first Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the US Army, reported to Truman after the Battle of Okinawa that Japan was in effect defeated and that it was trying to negotiate the terms of surrender. MacArthur also said to the General Staff Office that the War is over.

(9) Six out of all seven Five Star Generals and Admirals were against the use of ABombs with a view that Japan would surrender without them.

(against: MacArthur, Eisenhower, Marshal, Arnold, Nimitz, Leahy)

(10) Preservation of the Emperor was included in the US official proposal for the condition of Japan's surrender.

(11) However, on the way to Potsdam on Augusta, Byrnes succeeded in persuading Truman to remove the clause on the Emperor. Grew, Stimson and others were not on the ship.

(12) On July 16, 1945, in Potsdam, Truman received a message “Babies satisfactorily born," meaning that the first ABomb test “Trinity” as a part of the Manhattan Project was successfully carried out by the Los Alamos Laboratory and the US Army in a desert of New Mexico.

(13) Stimson arrived at Potsdam after the ABomb test, and asked Truman to re-include the clause of preserving the Emperor. But Truman very strongly refused by saying you can go home if you do not like it.

(14) During the first meeting in Potsdam on July 17, Truman asked Stalin, when the Soviets would invade Japan. Stalin replied August 15. (Japan had a non-aggression pact with the Soviets. But in the Yalta Conference held from February 4 to 11, 1945, FDR secretly agreed with Stalin to give the Soviets some parts of Japan in return for breaking the pact and invading Japan.) Truman wrote on this day's dairy that "He'll be in the Jap War on August 15th. Fini Japs when that comes about.” This means that if Truman uses ABombs BEFORE August 15, the purpose for their use must be something OTHER THAN ending the War.

(15) On July 25, 1945, Truman told Stimson to use the atomic bombs on Japan, and wrote on this day's diary that he is SURE that the Japs will NOT accept the Potsdam Declaration.

(16) On the following day, July 26, the Potsdam declaration was issued without a clause to preserve the Emperor, and was not signed by the Soviets confusing the Japanese. It was Truman that refused signing by Stalin. Even though the Soviets were not directly involved in the War against Japan at that time, it had already informed Japan in April 1945 that it would not extend the Non-Aggression Pact. Thus from the Japanese perspective, the Soviets were in a position that could attack Japan as part of the Allied Forces at anytime.

(17) On the SAME day, July 26, Truman gave commands to drop the ABombs on the earliest “clear" day after August 3, exactly one week after the Potsdam Declaration. The commands included detailed instructions to accompany with observation aircraft to record the effects of the ABombs. Note that BOTH commands for the two atomic bombs, the first Uranium one dropped in Hiroshima and the second Plutonium one dropped in Nagasaki, were given on the SAME day. Neither MacArthur nor Nimitz knew about the commands.

(18) Just before the planned Soviet's invasion date, the US dropped the ABombs on August 6 and 9, 1945. The B-29s were accompanied by an observation aircraft and another to film and photograph the bombings. The observation aircraft dropped several devices in various parts of the cities to register changes in temperature, atmospheric pressure, etc., during the explosions. Three of the devices were later collected and are displayed in the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum today. Los Alamos National Laboratory registered in its official record about the dropping of ABombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki that the two "experiments” were successful.

(19) Upon hearing the news, the Soviet commenced the invasion of Manchuria on August 9, sooner than the previously planned date of August 15.

(20) On the following day, August 10, the Emperor issued an Imperial decree to accept the Potsdam Declaration. The reason for surrender, according to the Emperor as recorded in the “Imperial Record of Showa (??????)” declassified in 2015, was the Soviet’s invasion because Japan no longer had an ability to hold a two-front war. (Already 66 civilian cities were completely destroyed by the US’s indiscriminate bombing that the destruction of two more cities, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, could not trigger capitulation.) Subsequently, Japan accepted the Potsdam Declaration on August 15.

(21) Truman said in a TV announcement that the US dropped ABombs that they "invested” two billion dollars in.

(22) As early as September 1945, "The Armed Forces Joint Commission for Investigating Effects of the Atomic Bomb in Japan,” lead by Col. Ashley W. Oughterson who arrived in Japan on the very first day of occupation by the GHQ, September 1, 1945, was formed and commenced large scale investigations. Some 1,300 Japanese doctors and scientists were pulled into the investigation examining more than 20,000 adult patients and 17,000 children. A wide range of experiments on patients were conducted disguised as treatments, examining reactions by victims to injections of various chemicals such as adrenaline. The policy, according to the doctors involved, was “What can be tested, should be tested." The results of these research and experiments were summarized in a 181 volume report consisting of more than 10,000 pages. But the results were never made public, and the reports were directly sent to the US Army while their existence was kept secret. The reports are now kept at the National Archives and Records Administration, NARA.

(A clip taken from a video kept at NARA, showing a victim being dissected )



(Actual report on a child victim)



(Actual table of figures from adrenaline tests in the report)

Also, intestines of 200 bodies were secretly sent to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Washington, D.C., for further study without notifying their families. These intestines are now kept in formalin in universities in Hiroshima and Okayama.


(The actual intestines in formaline bottles now kept at Uni. of Hiroshima)

Note that this was all done while Japan was still under the sway of GHQ before it regained its sovereignty.

(23) Based on the investigations, research and experiments, Col. Ashley W. Oughterson published in 1953 a six thick volume report "Medical effects of the atomic bomb in Japan,” of which one whole book is dedicated to studies on the effects on children. Then, from this, a graph of mortality and total casualty rates by atomic bombs vs distance from the hypocenter was created.


(The actual graph of mortality and total casualty rates by atomic bombs vs distance from hypocenter, created by the US Army)

This became the basis for the US nuclear strategy as it gave the crucial figures to calculate the number of atomic bombs required to attack each enemy city. Some numbers of Hiroshima-type atomic bombs required to annihilate cities as calculated by the US Air Force from the graph are as follows: Moscow 6, Stalingrad 5, Vladivostok 3, Kirov 2, Tallin 4, Chelyabinak 3, etc.


(The actual paper showing the number of atomic bombs to annihilate Soviet cities)

As such, through these experiments, the US now became the only country in the world with Big Data for the effects of atomic bombs on target cities as well as on human bodies.

(24) On July 1, 1946, a confidential report, "UNITED STATES STRATEGIC BOMBING SURVEY: JAPAN'S STRUGGLE TO END THE WAR,” prepared by the United States Strategic Bombing Survey (USSBS) was reported to Truman concluding that "Based on a detailed investigation of all the facts, and supported by the testimony of the surviving Japanese leaders involved, it is the Survey's opinion that certainly prior to 31 December 1945, and in all probability prior to 1 November 1945, Japan would have surrendered even if the atomic bombs had not been dropped, even if Russia had not entered the war, and even if no invasion had been planned or contemplated.”

(25) The Emperor Hirohito was not prosecuted in the Tokyo Tribunal, and he stayed as the Emperor. The position of the emperor was also kept under the new constitution which was illegally (by International Law) forced by the US. So the whole hustle about the preservation of the Emperor did not mean anything at all in the end.

(26) In his memoirs, Truman wrote "Japanese are beast. So are treated as."

(27) An acclaimed book "Just and Unjust Wars," written by a prominent US political philosopher at Harvard, Michael Waltzer, condemns the use of atomic bombs as crimes. Waltzer also accuses the US Government of not even trying to negotiate with the Japanese to surrender before the dropping of the bombs. He says it was a double crime in the sense that the US did not try to avoid, and that the bombs were dropped on civilian cities. This book is used as a text book at West Point today.

Why has the U.S. government never apologized for Hiroshima and Nagasaki?


When Nations have irreconcilable differences .... like "I want your oil and copper for free ..."warfare is an acceptable way to resolve that, on the battlefield. 

No nation on Earth today , and not even in ancient Israel, was warfare considered murder....

IF you declare war.

Japan had already bombed Pearl Harbor,  December 7, 1941 .... BEFORE warfare was declared ... by somewhere around an hour.

They were treated according to how they treated others .... and at this time were at war with China, as well.  The Japanese were unrivaled Barbarians on the battlefield ... EXCEPTIONALLY cruel and vicious.

In the above list of "details", much of it is after the fact opinions.... not actual facts... and is about 70% bogus in the recounting of it.

The Japanese national personality was such that they would NEVER have capitulated, and stopped fighting, unless the apparent force that binds the Universe together was used against them.

Based on battle experience across the Pacific Theater of War, it was estimated that  1 million American  soldier's lives would be lost beating down Japan, and 4 million Japanese lives.  THE USA purchased 700,000 Purple Heart Medals, most of which were never used, and that purchase is still being used today.

Two Atomic Bombs saved about 5 million lives, at a cost of about 250,000 lives, but that is irrelevant. 

This was ALSO revenge for the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, a day that will forever be remembered as a day of infamy.  This overwhelming show of force was necessary to prevent the NEXT Atomic War .....

.... and so far ...... IT HAS.

    • Joshua 2 ---> 1 Now after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord it came to pass, that the Lord spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, saying, 2 Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel. 3 Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses. 4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast. 5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. 6 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them. 7 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest. 8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. 9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. 10 Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying, 11 Pass through the host, and command the people, saying, Prepare you victuals; for within three days ye shall pass over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land, which the Lord your God giveth you to possess it. 12 And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to half the tribe of Manasseh, spake Joshua, saying, 13 Remember the word which Moses the servant of the Lord commanded you, saying, The Lord your God hath given you rest, and hath given you this land. 14 Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle, shall remain in the land which Moses gave you on this side Jordan; but ye shall pass before your brethren armed, all the mighty men of valour, and help them; 15 Until the Lord have given your brethren rest, as he hath given you, and they also have possessed the land which the Lord your God giveth them: then ye shall return unto the land of your possession, and enjoy it, which Moses the Lord's servant gave you on this side Jordan toward the sunrising. 16 And they answered Joshua, saying, All that thou commandest us we will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us, we will go. 17 According as we hearkened unto Moses in all things, so will we hearken unto thee: only the Lord thy God be with thee, as he was with Moses. 18 Whosoever he be that doth rebel against thy commandment, and will not hearken unto thy words in all that thou commandest him, he shall be put to death: only be strong and of a good courage.
    • 6 Now Jericho was straitly shut up because of the children of Israel: none went out, and none came in. 2 And the Lord said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour. 3 And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days. 4 And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams' horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets. 5 And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram's horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him. 6 And Joshua the son of Nun called the priests, and said unto them, Take up the ark of the covenant, and let seven priests bear seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the Lord. 7 And he said unto the people, Pass on, and compass the city, and let him that is armed pass on before the ark of the Lord. 8 And it came to pass, when Joshua had spoken unto the people, that the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams' horns passed on before the Lord, and blew with the trumpets: and the ark of the covenant of the Lord followed them. 9 And the armed men went before the priests that blew with the trumpets, and the rereward came after the ark, the priests going on, and blowing with the trumpets. 10 And Joshua had commanded the people, saying, Ye shall not shout, nor make any noise with your voice, neither shall any word proceed out of your mouth, until the day I bid you shout; then shall ye shout. 11 So the ark of the Lord compassed the city, going about it once: and they came into the camp, and lodged in the camp. 12 And Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests took up the ark of the Lord. 13 And seven priests bearing seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the Lord went on continually, and blew with the trumpets: and the armed men went before them; but the rereward came after the ark of the Lord, the priests going on, and blowing with the trumpets. 14 And the second day they compassed the city once, and returned into the camp: so they did six days. 15 And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose early about the dawning of the day, and compassed the city after the same manner seven times: only on that day they compassed the city seven times. 16 And it came to pass at the seventh time, when the priests blew with the trumpets, Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the Lord hath given you the city. 17 And the city shall be accursed, even it, and all that are therein, to the Lord: only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all that are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent. 18 And ye, in any wise keep yourselves from the accursed thing, lest ye make yourselves accursed, when ye take of the accursed thing, and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it. 19 But all the silver, and gold, and vessels of brass and iron, are consecrated unto the Lord: they shall come into the treasury of the Lord. 20 So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city. 21 And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword. 22 But Joshua had said unto the two men that had spied out the country, Go into the harlot's house, and bring out thence the woman, and all that she hath, as ye sware unto her. 23 And the young men that were spies went in, and brought out Rahab, and her father, and her mother, and her brethren, and all that she had; and they brought out all her kindred, and left them without the camp of Israel. 24 And they burnt the city with fire, and all that was therein: only the silver, and the gold, and the vessels of brass and of iron, they put into the treasury of the house of the Lord. 25 And Joshua saved Rahab the harlot alive, and her father's household, and all that she had; and she dwelleth in Israel even unto this day; because she hid the messengers, which Joshua sent to spy out Jericho. 26 And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before the Lord, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho: he shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it. 27 So the Lord was with Joshua; and his fame was noised throughout all the country.
    • As referenced in the Bible Book of Joshua
    • 19 And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground; 2 And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant's house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night. 3 And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat. 4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: 5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them. 6 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him, 7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. 8 Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof. 9 And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door. 10 But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door. 11 And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door. 12 And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place: 13 For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the Lord; and the Lord hath sent us to destroy it. 14 And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law. 15 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city. 16 And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the Lord being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city. 17 And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed. 18 And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord: 19 Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die: 20 Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live. 21 And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken. 22 Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do anything till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar. 23 The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar. 24 Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven; 25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. 26 But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. 27 And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the Lord: 28 And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace. 29 And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt. 30 And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters. 31 And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth: 32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. 33 And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. 34 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. 35 And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. 36 Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father. 37 And the first born bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day. 38 And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.
