The Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima | The Daily 360 | The New York Times


  1. Even if there warnings or no warning, Pearl Harbor was an inside Job, civilians and soldiers from The USA & Japan suffered the consequences
    It’s all been rigged since the beginning
    The same with 9/11 and almost every catastrophe that “pushed” the USA to go to War

  2. The U.S. did have a third bomb nearly ready to use. U.S. Officials dropped broad hints to the Japanese Government that the third city hit, if they did not surrender, would be a ' very large one '. It is quite possible that either Osaka or Tokyo were the probable targets.

  3. 原爆は正しかったとかいう外人さん多過ぎ! まあ日本人も沢山人を殺したっちゃ殺したけど…。

  4. Who is here to watch the butthurt Japanese and butthurt Americans fight in the comments.

  5. The USA was not evil for dropping the nuclear bombs on Nagasaki & Hiroshima, it was actually the least awful option for Harry S. Truman to deal with the Japanese in the Pacific. If it weren't for the atomic bombs, the casualties of Japan would've had been much more than a million. People who cannot understand this and just decide to go against Truman for dropping the nukes are just idiots who cannot understand the full tension of the situation in the Pacific.

  6. "No warning given"? WRONG!! We actually did warn Japan, in the Potsdam Declaration. Although we didn't totally reveal what was to come, we told Japan to expect a "rain of ruin….unlike anything ever seen". Trump did the same thing when he warned North Korea of "fire and fury" if they continued to make threats against the US. Note to Kim Jong whats-his-name….we've done it before, we can do it again.

  7. 0:50 – We sent leaflets for a WEEK prior to the bombing! What do you mean "There was no warning?!?" Are you stupid? Get some education, lefties!

  8. 原爆を落とさなくたって、

  9. Japan deserves what they had coming. Especially for what they did to Korea, Japan and Pearl Harbor. Us told them to surrender but they refused.
