At 8:15 AM, August 6, 1945, a U.S. B-29 bomber named “Enola Gay” after the pilot’s mother, dropped a uranium atomic bomb over the city of Hiroshima, Japan, and in the blink of an eye vaporized thousands of civilians — women, men and children.  Overall 140,000 people were killed in Hiroshima.
At 11:02 AM on August 9th, the U.S. dropped a plutonium atomic bomb on the city of Nagasaki, killing another 60,000 – 80,000 civilians.  Many thousands more continue to suffer and die from psychological trauma and illnesses caused by prolonged effects of radiation exposure.
This must never be allowed to happen again!

Yet, the threatened use of nuclear weapons remains at the heart of U.S. “national security” policy.  Despite hopes for a dramatic change of course, the new Nuclear Posture Review reveals no substantial changes in U.S. nuclear force structure, retaining all three legs of the strategic triad — heavy bombers, intercontinental ballistic missiles and strategic submarines, and declaring: “These nuclear forces will continue to play an essential role in deterring potential adversaries an reassuring allies and partners around the world.
