August 6th marked the 75th anniversary of the first use of nuclear weapons, on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, killing, completely arbitrarily, over 200,000 people. Today, the United States and other nations are developing ever new nuclear weapons, including low yield varieties, even when their own analysis and wargames demonstrate that any use of nuclear weapons will result in an unsurvivable conflagration for all of humanity.

In 1995, the 50th anniversary of Hiroshima, Lyndon LaRouche wrote:

“By April 12, 1945, the day of President Franklin Roosevelt’s untimely death, he, Gen. Douglas MacArthur, and Adm. Chester Nimitz had led the United States and Australia to assured victory in the Pacific Theater. Already, Japan’s Emperor Hirohito was negotiating surrender with President Roosevelt, and other U.S.A. allies, working through Pope Pius XII’s acting secretary for diplomatic affairs, Giovanni Montini (later Pope Paul VI). At the time Roosevelt died, the islands of Japan were already effectively blockaded; Japan’s military situation was hopeless. Surrender on the Emperor’s proposed terms was virtually assured within a few more months, as the logistical noose tightened sufficiently to end all Japan military leaders’ resistance to the Emperor’s will. At the time, the best U.S. guess was Autumn 1945, by no later than November.

“There was no need for a military invasion of the islands of Japan. There was no military reason for dropping those nuclear weapons on two cities, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, of a Japan which had been utterly defeated; there was only a British geopolitical motive, which had almost nothing to do with Japan as such.

“As Niccolò Machiavelli’s commentaries on the ten books of Livy emphasized to many generations of professional military officers, there is no military justification for a deadly assault on an adversary who is already hopelessly defeated, and cornered; to invade Japan head-on, in such circumstances, would have been a folly fit for the court-martialing of any commander incompetent enough to order it.

“There was one crucial motive for that bombing: Winston Churchill and Company wished those bombs used. Once Churchill’s political adversary, President Franklin Roosevelt, was dead and buried, Churchill and his U.S. accomplices had their way with Harry S Truman.”

Read Lyndon's full article, “Hiroshima: Hamlet Bombs Out.”

Over at Consortium News, on August 5th, Scott Rittter and others provided a useful expose of the atrocity which killed a quarter of a million Japanese people in order to “threaten and subdue the Russians.”

It is this perverted “British geopolitics” which is now driving the world toward yet another world war. The British have targeted both Russia and China as “revisionist” powers which must be either absorbed into their new empire or obliterated. The Bush and Obama Administrations were fully onboard with these policies as is most of the Washington national security state, including Congress, the Pentagon, and Mike Pompeo’s bellicose and belligerent State Department. Donald Trump’s desire to end endless wars and bring America back to its legacy as the City on the Hill, is the reason for the coup against him.

In Japan, as the last survivors of this massacre die, a younger generation has dedicated itself to preserving their memory and preventing any repeat of such madness. In the United States, history itself is being dangerously obliterated by people claiming to speak for a generation made deliberately ignorant of history through their university educations, some of whom have even claimed in their social media posts that they wish to eliminate civilization itself. Many have not even contemplated what would happen in a nuclear war or what could cause such a war to take place. A beginning way to think about this can be found in the 2012 LaRouchePAC video, “Unsurvivable.”
