It was not only a turning point in World War II, but also a turning point in history as the world was introduced to the atomic bomb for the first time. RT sat down for an exclusive interview with Theodore Van Kirk, the last surviving member of the Enola Gay, the American bomber that dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima.

Japan remembers Hiroshima victimsn

Published 06 August, 2010, 06:07

Edited 06 August, 2010, 23:02

Japan is remembering the 140,000 people who died after the first-ever use of an atomic bomb, dropped by the US on the city of Hiroshima in August 1945.

It is the first time representatives from America, as well as Britain and France, attended a memorial for the attack. A total of 75 countries were present.

“I think it is very significant to see there Ambassador John Roos [US Ambassador to Japan – ed.]. this is the first time that the Americans have actually participated in this ceremony,” said Dr. Kate Hudson, head of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. “It is widely seen now as an indication of the very serious intent of President Obama [to achieving a nuclear weapons-free world.]”

Meanwhile, Professor Robert Jacobs from the Hiroshima Peace Institute believes there is still a large degree of contention in the US over the subject of the Hiroshima bombing.

“It was only in 1995 that, at an exhibition commemorating the anniversary of the bombing at the Smithsonian Institution in the US, there was controversy over including photographs of hibakusha [victims who survived the bombings –ed.] along with the display of the Enola Gay [the bomber that dropped the first bomb- ed.]," Jacobs said.

Thats a thugged out old man right there. What you would call a real steadfast soldier. I deal directly with the armed forces on a daily basis. Alot of these kids today who are so ready for war and the lazy a.ss ones why take being a soldier way too lightly could learn a thing or 2 from a old timer like this. Throw a salute to the old bird when you see'em!!!

Only two responses in and a race comment is made.


O wait. This dude just makes racist comments all day on here.

That's white people for you. Spend all the money in the world on nuclear weapons, jets, and guns. But cut any and all avenues to a proper education(Unless you are one of them or in line to fill a quota).

I'm Filipino.... and what they did to my people was f*cked up throwing babies in the air and catching them with bayonets. I don't condone nuclear weapon use... but it had to be done.

That's bulls**t and you know it.
how you figure? Learn history before you talk s**t...if we didn't drop that bomb the war would've went on for another couple years (FACT) and so many more people would've been k!lled due to the war this ended the war saved far more lives then it k!lled

They actually did this to get Japan to surrender, it's in their culture to f!ght to the death, there is a reason why they didn't attack major cities such as Kyoto and Tokyo at the time.

But to demonize Americans for doing something almost 60 years ago which probably saved millions of lives from Japanese led atrocities doesn't make sense to me. At the end of the day, it's just War, people get k!lled, get the f**k over it.

there were quite a bit of the emperor's generals who still didnt want to surrender.

they actually almost plotted to keep f!ghting despite what he said.

This comment is as stupid as it is false. How in the f**k can you predict how many people (on America's side) would have died if the war continued? Please break that down for me because as of right now, I'm filing under the bulls**t column. Also, there is a huge difference between soldiers being k!lled and INNOCENT CIVILIANS who do not control what their government does. Hopefully a foreign nation decides to drop a bomb on your house only due to the fact that our country is at war with them.
Just wondering, have you ever heard of Unit 731?

it really shouldnt be up for debate. japan was part of the axis of evil and were allies with Hitler. our reasoning pretty much stops there. they attacked us, we own them and end the war. mission accomplished
