Flashback: U.S. propaganda in the run up to the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9, 1945, sixty nine years ago….

“The human race stands on the verge of nuclear self-extinction as a species, and with it will die most, if not all, forms of intelligent life on the planet earth.

Any attempt to dispel the ideology of nuclearism and its attendant myth propounding the legality of nuclear weapons and nuclear deterrence must directly come to grips with the fact that the nuclear age was conceived in the original sins of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9, 1945.”  Prof. Francis A. Boyle’s article entitled The criminality of nuclear deterrence. Hiroshima Day, August 6, 1945
