US: The Real Global Terror Alert by Finian Cunningham | Dandelion Salad

Sixty-eight years ago this week, the United States wiped out more than 200,000 people when it dropped two atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.Tens of thousands more victims were to die over the ensuing years due to slow, painful deaths from cancers and birth defects.Yet the US – the only state to have ever used atomic weapons – has never apologized or made any atonement for this singularly horrific crime. Officially, the US justifies it as a legitimate attack during war even though many historical sources show that there was absolutely no military necessity for the bombings.
