TRINITY SHOT NUCLEAR TEST EXPLOSION JULY 16 1945 US GOVERNMENT PHOTO IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN

Trinity Shot

The Gadget” is the informal nickname of the first nuclear test explosion of the Manhattan Project conducted by the United States Army in the Jornada del Muerto desert about 35 miles southeast of Socorro, New Mexico, at the new White Sands Proving Ground, which incorporated the Alamogordo Bombing and Gunnery Range. In 2013, the site is now the White Sands Missile Range. The photograph was taken by Jack W. Aeby, July 16, 1945, as a member of the Special Engineering Detachment at Los Alamos laboratory, working under the aegis of the Manhattan Project.

Wednesday, August 14, 2013 – People should dance in the streets. Schools should be closed. People should be enraptured in song. Ticker tape should fall like snow out of city windows around the world. Children should be laughing, running and playing in the street.

 

The World should “Take The Day Off And Celebrate ! ”

 

Throughout the globe – The Party should spread. Fireworks should explode in the skies overhead. People should dance, laugh, sing and celebrate.

 

The celebration should have such energy that it lasts throughout the week and the rest of the month. Party Hardy !

 

68 Years ago today, World War II ended !

Japan announced “Unconditional Surrender.” Guns went silent.

 

Alas, today, news telecasts might mention the fact. Newspapers might publish an article. A story might be published on the Internet to recognize The 68th Anniversary Of The End Of World War II.

 

A history professor at a university might remind her class or deliver a lecture about today’s date in World War II.

 

A military historian might take a World War II history book off the shelf and decide to observe today’s anniversary by clarification of some points in his research of the events that he plans for a lecture later in the week to veterans or students at a War College or an Air Command and Staff College.

 

A museum curator might pause at a World War II exhibit and take a moment to shine the collar brass on the uniform of the mannequin on display.

 

The museum curator she might even take a moment to remember her grandfather and grandmother’s stories about World War II and decide that she should get a cloth and polish up some of the medals on display.

 

The majority of The Citizens Of The World, if they even hear the news item, will simply shrug it off as “Ancient History.” People will brush off the anniversary as, “It’s history.”

 

The Importance Of World War II is, as of August 14, 2013, World War II still remains “The Deadliest Conflict In Human History !” More than 30 Nations Of The World were in A Total State Of War. Each sunrise meant more Death and Devastation.

 

The horrific cost of lives and property in World War II has determined the agenda for every War since. Nations fight “Conventional Wars”, in the belief, that No Nation will “Unleash Their Nuclear Arsenal” to end a War. To date, the belief has held, but, each new sun rise brings a challenge to The Nations Of The World.

 

The importance of War is The Fact that War is inevitable because human nature of individual humans does not change. The Lesson Of War is it is a force that will continue to end human lives and devastate the planet as long as people can not learn to live together.

 

Tuesday, August 14,1945 – President Of The United States Of America Harry S. Truman announces that Japan has surrendered unconditionally, ending World War II.

 

Wednesday, August 15,1945 – In Japan, news of The End Of The War causes people to take to the street. They are not in the mood to celebrate. They Lost. Riots break out.

 

The Kyūjō Incident is a last ditch effort by more than 1,000 Japanese Imperial Army soldiers to storm the Imperial Palace in Tokyo and stage a coup d’ ‘etat. They wanted to get the Imperial Proclamation and stop its transmission to the Allies. Imperial Army General Shizuichi Tanaka, Eastern District Army commander, responsible for the Tokyo and Yokohama area, at dawn, August 15, 1945, went to the Imperial Palace and ordered the soldiers to return to their barracks, which they did.

Major Kenji Hatanaka, Military Affairs Section, Japanese Ministry of War, is considered the mastermind of the coup. He led forces into The Imperial Palace to rummage for the Imperial Proclamation surrender recording. The Emperor was kept under “house arrest.”

Unable to locate the recording, Major Hatanaka and some of his troops went to the NHK Studios to attempt to prevent the surrender broadcast and get some air time to explain his actions at staging the coup. His message was not broadcast and his contingent left the studios. By 8 am., the coup was over.

The surrender speech had been recorded on a phonograph record and smuggled out of the palace in a laundry basket of women’s underwear.

Tuesday, August 14,1945 – News of the end of the War spreads through the air thanks to radio. Around the globe, on both sides of The International Date Line, celebrations break out.

 

New York City’s Time Square erupts in celebration and a photographer snaps a photograph of a happy sailor, who grabs a woman and kisses her.

 

America Cuts Loose” and the news causes people to celebrate. Half-a-decade of global conflict has ended. Revelry erupts.

 

Kisses and hugs are given out. Booze flows. Fists also get thrown. But, the celebrations across America are proof that citizens can return to their Lives and plan for the future. They can hug their kids and hope someday to have grand kids.

 

The War Is Over !

 

Back To The Present – Wednesday, August 14, 2013 –

 

The 68th Anniversary Of The End Of World War II will pass without much fanfare around the world because as time passes people move on with their lives and even monumental events of previous generations rest in scrapbooks, history books and photo albums to gather dust.

 

Today is Victory in Japan Day !

The day is also known as Victory over Japan Day, and Victory in the Pacific Day, and the common initials are V-J Day, or V-P Day.

The name chosen by The Allies for the day on which Japan surrenders, essentially ending World War II. The term V-J Day or V-P Day is applied to two days in August: August 14 and August 15.

The surrender announcement was broadcast on the afternoon of August 15, 1945, in Japan. The International Date Line and, time zone differences,means the announcement filled the airwaves August 14, 1945,when it was announced in the United States and the rest of the Americas and Eastern Pacific Islands.

The End of World War II proves The Ancient Lesson Of Warfare, which is you have to destroy your enemy.

The Allies had to destroy the munitions, equipment and manpower to fight the War. The Allies had to eliminate the motivational Will of the enemy to fight the War. “The Enemy” has to be so severely devastated they no longer have the ability to fight the War.

The Japanese Navy was the third largest navy in the world by 1920, behind the United Kingdom’s Royal Navy and the United States Navy.

In 1941, the Imperial Japanese Army had 51 divisions and a total of 1,700,000 men. By 1945, there were 5.5 million men in the Imperial Japanese Army.

 

In 1941, the Imperial Japanese Navy possessed 10 battleships, 10 aircraft carriers, 38 cruisers (heavy and light), 112 destroyers, 65 submarines, and various auxiliary ships

 

The Imperial Japanese Navy started the War In The Pacific with the largest and most modern carrier fleet in the world at that time.

 

The most varied fleet of submarines of World War II were underway with the Imperial Japanese Navy. The submarines included Kaiten,the manned torpedoes, the Kohytoeki and Kairyu midget submarines and medium-range submarines, the purpose-built supply submarines, for use by the Imperial Japanese Army, and the long-range fleet submarines,many of which carried aircraft.

 

Three submarines with the highest submerged speeds of the conflict were built but never put to sea, during World War II.

 

The Senotku I-400 submarine, World War II’s largest submarine did put to sea. The crew of 144 men sailed the 400 foot-long submarine, which could launch three sea planes. The Senotku surrendered to the crew of a United States Navy destroyer.

 

The IJN submarines were equipped with the most advanced torpedo of the conflict, the Type 95 torpedo.

 

By the end of World War II, the majority of the world’s third largest navy rested at the bottom of the world’s oceans. However, there were still at least 2,000,000 men under arms and 3,000 aircraft on the mainland of Japan.

 

The first atomic bomb was named “Thin Man” by Robert Serber for the Dashiell Hammett detective novel and series of movies of the same name. Serber named all three bombs.

 

Little Boy” got it’s name from the design shape to contrast it from “Thin Man.” “Little Boy” fell on Hiroshima, it was the first target due to its military and industrial values. Hiroshima was the home of the Japanese 5th Division and the 2nd Army Headquarters.

 

War planners would of looked at Hiroshima Bay on the map to consider Hiroshima a port in southern Japan. War planners would of noticed that the mountains around the city should contain the A-bomb blast and increase the level of destruction.

 

The Kokura Arsenal in Kokura, which produced bayonets, rifles and other war equipment was the designated target of the second nuclear bombing mission, but cloud cover over the target area, meant the aircraft would proceed to the secondary target site : Nagasaki.

 

Fat Man” the second atomic bomb fell on Nagasaki, an important sea port in southern Japan.

Fat Man”, the second atomic bomb was named after Sydney Greenstreets’s character in “The Maltese Falcon” from the Dashiell Hammett novel. “Fat Man” was the second plutonium atomic bomb the first “The Gadget” had been detonated in a July 16,1945 test, near Alamagordo, New Mexico.

Fat Man” destroyed the Mitsubishi Steel and Arms Works and the Mitsubishi-Urakami Torpedo Works in Nagasaki. Torpedoes used in the attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii had been built in the Nagasaki torpedo plant.

World War II as “The Deadliest Conflict In Human History” reminds people that War destroys lives, changes the terrain and infrastructure of nations, and creates issues that will irradiate for years, decades and centuries. The Nuclear Explosions Of World War II demonstrated “The Power” that can be used to end a War.

Victory In Japan Day meant that the hostilities had stopped and people took to the streets to riot or celebrate. The Formal Surrender of Japan to The Allies would occur Sunday,September 2, 1945 aboard the United States Navy’s battleship, USS Missouri.

There have been Wars and all types of military actions throughout the globe since V-J Day and the formal surrender. Since humanity relies on War to settle disputes there will be more Wars.

The World War II Lesson that has stood the test of time, so far, is No Nation is currently willing to detonate a Nuclear Weapon in War.

“BURN IN HELL EMPEROR HIROHITO ! SOCIAL MEDIA EDITORIAL

with 6 comments

Pearl Harbor Attack

71st Anniversary Editorial

The Government of Japan has never accepted “Responsibility”

Burn In Hell,

Emperor Hirohito !

ASIAS MOST SUCCESSFUL TERRORIST MASTERMIND HIROHITO_resized

Asia’s Terrorist Godfather

Emperor Hirohito

 

Emperor Hirohito in military uniform does not look like “A Man Of Peace.” He wasn’t. In the invasion of Manchuria, in the years before World War II, he did nothing to stop the policy of “Three Alls: Kill All, Loot All and Burn All.” The Soviet Union’s Joseph Stalin would sign “Death Warrants” before going to bed, Stalin is estimated to have killed 20 million people. Hirohito was reported to have been aware of the chemical and biological testing on the Allies Prisoners Of War and did nothing to stop it. Public Domain Photo

by Samuel E. Warren Jr.

Sunday, December 7,1941 at Pearl Harbor Hawaii, 2,390 Americans were slaughtered in their sleep as well as those sitting down to breakfast at the chow hall at 7:55 am.

The Japanese Attack On Pearl Harbor brought the United States into World War II the following day.

World War II is the deadliest conflict in all of human history. World War II lasted six years and one day.

After the War, The Nations Of The World lined up and made sure Germany was severely punished for their actions that led to the War.

The Government Of Japan got a “Get Out Of Jail Free Card” and, instead of, being punished the nation was rebuilt.

The sick irony of the perverted form of global justice is The Government Of Japan never had to “Accept Responsibility For Their Role In Starting World War II In Asia.”

Nations Of The World recognize Adolf Hitler as “The Madman Who Started World War II.” During World War II, Americans and the Allies recognized Emperor Hirohito as “The Madman Who Brought World War II To The Pacific.”

After the War, Adolf Hitler goes into the history books as “The Madman” and Emperor Hirohito goes into the history books as. . .”A Victim Of The Big, Bad, Evil, Imperial Japanese Army and the Imperial Japanese Navy.”

The dog and pony show fairy tale sold to world citizens and global history is Japan was a “militaristic society” with the poor, little emperor being held hostage of the “terrorists’ military.”

Horsefeathers !

Japan was not the Klingon Empire.

Upon the death of his grandfather, Emperor Hirohito received a formal commission in the Imperial Army and in the Imperial Navy.

Propaganda Publicity Photography Pose

Emperor Hirohito on horseback. If you win the War, then, you release the photographs of the esteemed leader in military uniform on the white horse to show he is in command. If you lose the War, your propaganda people are suppose to destroy these photographs. Looks like the propaganda people with their matches and kerosene missed a photograph. Public Domain Photo.

 

The Kid Gets Tanks And Battleships

 

Young Emperor Hirohito was “Officially On Duty” as a second lieutenant and an ensign. Hirohito not only technically “served in the military”, but, he was in charge of “The System” that brought World War II to the Pacific.

 

Hirohito had a commission as an officer, which meant when he gave a military order it had to be followed whether it was launching the battleship Yamamoto or grabbing wooden swords and dancing around the palace grounds “playing War.”

 

By age 12, Prince Hirohito, the future Emperor had his own Army and Navy to play with. Where in the world does a 12-year-old boy get a standing army that will grow to 300,000 men and the third largest navy in the world ?

 

Answer: Japan.

 

In Japan, The Constitution of 1889 defined the Emperor as Head of State and the Generalissimo of the Imperial Japanese Armed Forces. While Hirohito held military rank in both the army and the navy, he was also “The Boss,” which means, in a figurative sense, “he signs the paychecks”, and in a very real sense,he would decide which officers rose in rank and which ones left the military.

 

Instead of being “a hostage of evil military leaders” Emperor Hirohito was the “terrorist Godfather of the Japanese military.” He called the shots and the military leaders saluted smartly and carried out his orders.

 

Emperor Hirohito’s Government is credited from the invasion of China in 1937 to the end of World War II with the deaths of between 3,000,000 to 10,000,000 people.

 

The nationalities of the victims include Chinese, Indonesians, Koreans, Filipinos, Indo-Chinese and the Allies’ Prisoners Of War, according to figures compiled by R.J. Rummel, who calculates, the Japanese murdered nearly one out of every one-hundred people living in territory controlled by Japan.

 

Justice Delayed Is Justice Denied

 

Friday, December 7, 2012 – Today is the 71st Anniversary of the Attack on Pearl Harbor. World War II is over.

 

Why is it important for the Government Of Japan to “accept responsibility” for starting World War II in the Pacific ?”

 

Answer Terrorist nations are supposed to be held accountable for their actions.

 

The Nations Of The World identified Syria as “a terrorist state” because in the 1970s and 1980s terrorists would find “safe haven” in Syria.

General Tojo_Prime Minister Of  JAPAN AND OFFICIAL SCAPEGOATCROPPED_resized

 

The Official Scapegoat Of Japan

General Hideki Tojo

Every War in history needs an “Official Scapegoat.” When a nation loses a War, someone has to be, “The Villian.” Human nature demands that people be able to associate death, misery and suffering with “The Person Responsible.” The Allies chose not to put Emperor Hirohito and members of the Imperial Family on trial. Unfortunately, for General Tojo, he was the World War II Prime Minister Of Japan. He was high enough up the “food chain” that he could be executed. Shed No Tears For Tojo.  The documented and reported War Crimes of Japanese soldiers, during World World II, makes it seem the majority of soldiers and sailors were psychotic, sadistic criminals more like Al-Qaeda terrorists in Halloween costumes than professionally trained military professionals. Public Domain Photo.

The Economic Embargo Option

 

When the nations of the world get together and enact economic embargoes it sends a message that there are some acts of sovereign nations that the other nations of the world will not stand.

 

When necessary, nations then mobilize their armies to “Close The Borders,” the navies sail to setup “Naval Blockades” and nations activate their air forces to establish a “No Fly Zone.”

 

Emperor Hirohito basically got away with being one of the biggest “War Criminals Of The World.”

 

Osama bin Laden became “The Global Godfather Of Terrorism” with the attacks on The World Trade Centers. But, global justice sought him out and held him accountable for his acts.

 

Hirohito got away with his “global terrorism”, apparently, because he was born into a royal family and people don’t want to think of their aristocrats as terrorists in the shadows.

 

Osama bin Laden had the Al Qaeda fanatics at his disposal. Hirohito had a complete “subservient culture” of millions of people at his disposal.

 

Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah and other terrorists’ organizations have to rely on brainwashed half-wits to be crazy enough to strap on a bomb and become a “suicide bomber.”

 

Hirohito simply gave the order and people slipped into the cockpits of Kamikazes The sacrificed pilots, then, had the canopy shut and locked. The pilot essentially sat on top of hundreds of sticks of TNT. The aircraft had no landing gear.

Every mission was a suicide mission for a Kamikaze pilot.

 

By the battle of Leyte Gulf, Emperor Hirohito, the terrorist, was running out of options, supplies and he had to be showing a serious shortage of manpower. Nonetheless, Japan’s “suicide bombers” wasted their lives for an aristocratic terrorist.

 

The Diplomatic Snub

 

Historical sources point out that on at least two occasions “hat in hand” Emperor Hirohito “supposedly went to apologize” for Japan’s actions in World War II to the office of General MacArthur.

 

Both times, General MacArthur, was unavailable. The importance of this “Diplomatic Snub” is General MacArthur denied Hirohito the public opportunity to “Save Face.”

 

The Act Of “Saving Face”

 

In Asian countries, the act of “Saving Face” is “accepting responsibility” for your actions. In my experiences in Asian cultures, “The Act Of Saving Face” seems to be an important public and social custom in all Asian countries.

 

In Japan, the custom can be taken to the extreme. In the mid-80s, when I was stationed in Okinawa, a story in a Japanese newspaper told of the elderly Japanese rice farmer and his wife, who had lost their home and their farm. They went out across the field and laid down on the railroad tracks.

 

In a few moments, the daily “bullet train” to Tokyo solved all their financial and retirement problems in an instant.

 

Americans would call the act, “suicide”, in Japan, the action was considered, “Saving Face.” The farmer and his wife had lost everything and rather than be criticized, pitied, made fun of, or held up to ridicule, the homeless, penniless couple committed a modern day act of Hart-Kari.

 

When General MacArthur did not allow Emperor Hirohito to “Save Face”, the general was essentially saying, “The Allies Are Not Ready To Let You Off The Hook For World War II.”

 

The action to snub Hirohito was important because if other world leaders and nations of World War II wanted to seek formal and diplomatic action against Hirohito and Japan, then, Hirohito and the royal household could not point to the “Save Face” act and claim it had already been done.

 

The News Cameras Of The World

 

General MacArthur was a wise leader who understood politics and public relations. He got one of the biggest battleships in the United States Navy to set up the “Formal Surrender Ceremony” aboard the USS Missouri, so that the global news media could document the history making event seven ways on Sunday.

 

The general understood in his position he was a military leader and not a political or government leader and before such an event could take place he would have had to touched base with the government leaders of the nations of the Allies.

 

General MacArthur and President Harry S. Truman, a World War I veteran, had their differences on Asian policies. If the general had allowed Hirohito to do the “Save Face” gesture in his office, President Truman, no doubt, would of probably considered the act “grandstanding” by the general to “put one over on the president.”

 

General MacArthur, a media aware leader, was smart enough not to allow the short terrorist to “weasel out” of formal responsibility for World War II in the Pacific over a cup of coffee and a bowl of noodles in the general’s office.

 

No doubt, General MacArthur knew he had kept Hirohito and the Imperial Family from a date with the gallows. While the general had saved Hirohito’s life he didn’t have to entertain him like “a drinking buddy” or treat him like a friend.

 

The snub also kept “the emperor in his place.” After the War, the Allies’ occupation forces were in charge of “nation building in Japan.” The emperor served as “a global tourist attraction” his role was to be “The Face In Place For Japan.”

The Cost Of Blood And Treasure To The Nations Of The Pacific For World War II was an issue General MacArthur choose to leave to the leaders of those nations.

 

General MaArthur may have expected other nations in the future to seek some type of formal, financial and diplomatic acknowledgment from Japan through the appropriate official channels.

 

After 71 years, the responsibility for World War II in the Pacific needs to be accepted formally by The Government Of Japan.

 

Germany and other nations were punished for their role in World War II. The War involved most of the countries of the world. The copied Wikipedia table below shows the tabulated loss of life from World War II.

 

Casualties and losses

Military dead:
Over 16,000,000
Civilian dead:
Over 45,000,000
Total dead:
Over 61,000,000
(1937–45)

Military dead:
Over 8,000,000
Civilian dead:
Over 4,000,000
Total dead:
Over 12,000,000
(1937–45)

The European Madman Adolf Hitler thought he would change the world; he did, but, not as he had intended.

 

The Japanese Madman Emperor Hirohito, basically, thought he would make Japan the dominant Asian Power Of The Pacific. He didn’t, but, Japan’s ability to ignore responsibility for the War did allow the “nation-building” exercise to get up and running quickly.

 

The Government Of Japan is not “On The Public Record” for “Accepting Responsibility For World War II In The Pacific.”

 

The Government Of Japan is on the public record for recognizing Emperor Hirohito as “The Shining Emperor.”

 

Imagine The Nobel Peace Prize Committee selecting to award a peace prize posthumously to Al Qaeda’s Osama bin Laden. . . Not likely. However, Japan recognizes Hirohito, one of the most psychotic and sadistic terrorist of the 20th Century as “The Shining Emperor.”

 

The 71st Anniversary of the Attack On Pearl Harbor seems like an appropriate time for The Nations Of The World to “Demand” the Government Of Japan “accept responsibility” for World War II In The Pacific.

 

The Nations Of The World have been more than generous to The Government Of Japan, For more than 70 years, none of the nations have “pressed” Japan for any type of formal statement, apology or admission for the national campaign of unbridled terrorism during World War II.

 

Economic Advantage

 

Beginning around 1960, less than 20 years after The End Of World War II, Japan’s entered the electronics market selling radios and TVs. By the 1980s, Japan not only had a stable economy, but actively sought overseas investments. While citizens deserve credit for their hard work, had the Nations Of The World been more inclined to seek retribution for war crimes, Japan would not have risen as quickly from the ashes of defeat.

 

When The Crimes Of History Go Without Punishment Or A Formal End then The Nations Of The World are just stepping back to allow someone to lay the foundation for the next War.

 

Accept Or Reject

 

The Government Of Japan should admit their role in World War II. The formal act then would be an opportunity for The Nations Of The World to “accept” or “reject” the action. After 71 years – The Time Has Come To Accept Responsibility. If not today; when ?

 

World War II destroyed lives and laid to waste the infrastructure of nations. In Asia, it took more than 20 years for some of the countries destroyed by Japan’s attacks to begin to rebuild.

 

Defense Budget Tax Break

 

The Allies allowed Japan to keep their royal family. The Allies decision to reorganize and restructure Japan’s military actually helped Japan avoid the costly defense budgets of other nations, especially during the intense Cold War years,which provided more revenue for Japan to use in other areas of their economy.

 

While The Allies definitely “punished” Germany for their role in World War II, Japan “skated out” on accepting any of the responsibility for their role to inflame half the world in a global war. Obviously, Emperor Hirohito was a better terrorist mastermind than Osama bin Laden.

 

Social Media Global Justice Campaign

Time To Pay The Fiddler”

 

FEED ICON BUTTON_resizedToday should be the day, when The Citizens Of The World   use their social media resources to start the campaign to persuade a government to admit a former leader was a global “war criminal” who carried out crimes against humanity with no remorse. 

SOCIAL MEDIA BUTTONS_resized

Facebook time ! Time to Twitter tweet ! Reach out to your friends and relatives through all your social media sources and encourage “The Government Of Japan ‘To Do The Right Thing” and publicly accept their role.”

    index_resized

 

It has been more than 70 years, but: “Did you have a grandfather, father,uncle, aunt, sister, brother, mother or other relative die at the hands of Japan in World War II ?”

social-media_resized

Is it just that the Government Of Japan Never Accepted Responsibility For Their Decision To Bring World War II To The Pacific ?”

Are the Citizens Of The World willing to use their Social Media devices to express their opinions to The Government Of Japan ?”

A terrorist is a terrorist. Osama bin Laden was the son of a rich man, but Justice still found bin Laden.

 

Hirohito was a member or royalty. Apparently, “aristocratic birthright” protects a “war criminal” and a “terrorist” from justice in The Real World.
