Hiroshima Marks 60th Anniversary of Atomic Bomb
Tens of thousands of people from around the world gathered in Hiroshima on Saturday, August 6, 2005, to renew calls for the abolition of nuclear arms on the 60th anniversary of the American atomic bombing of the city. Under a blazing summer sun, survivors and families of victims assembled at the Peace Memorial Park near “ground zero”, the spot where the bomb detonated on Aug. 6, 1945, killing thousands and leveling the city.
Interestingly, I never heard of any kind of apology from America or American people regarding this worst attrocities ever done by any civilized humankind in 20th century. What I always hear is apologetic words from US officials about the “unfortunate” events. unfortunate? collateral damage? with hundreds of thousand dead? No one ever used nuclear bomb but the US. Now, it’s the US which busy itself by policing other countries not to make nuclear: North Korea, India, Pakistan, Iran, etch for fear of using the nukes or of what?
