Five Myths About The Atomic Bomb

It was exactly 70 years ago that Truman had ordered the dropping of an atomic bomb on Nagasaki, just three days after dropping one on Hiroshima. The event had ever since been shrouded with myth, and history had shown too much kindness for this vicious and inhumane act. There is nothing that could justify what Truman did.

I have little hope that the foolish, historically illiterates will be enlightened about the event, but that doesn’t stop me from posting this great article from the Washington Post entitled “Five myths about the atomic bomb“.
