For 70 years, the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the US has been marked by reverence for the many victims who tragically lost their lives during the nuclear attack, but now an influential American international affairs outlet, Foreign Policy, has decided to spin the event, blaming the Soviet Union for what happened.
In his article “Did Hiroshima Save Japan From Soviet Occupation?” Sergey Radchenko makes it seem like the nuclear bombings were a godsend, and that the US humanely intended to save Japan from communism.
Following the publication of the provocative article, Helga Zepp LaRouche, founder of the Schiller Institute Washington DC, spoke to Sputnik radio, saying that there is no justification for what the US did in Japan.
“There was absolutely no reason for this bombing as there was already peace negotiation between the emperor and the Vatican at that time. The bombing was done to instigate horror and awe by Truman so that he could continue the era of imperialism,” LaRouche said.
She goes on to say that US is busily preparing itself for war. Signs indicate that another nuclear war is getting closer and this time it will annihilate the entire human race.
In order to prevent that from happening, LaRouche said that the US, Russia and China need to sit down and talk. Europe must apply pressure, and say that it will not be a part of such a war.
“The leaders of the US, Russia and China must sit together and discuss the new international security architecture. We must overcome geopolitics if we don’t want to extinct ourselves.”
