Nagasaki was devastated on August 9, 1945 by a bomb nicknamed "Fat Man" which killed more than 70,000 people instantly or in the days and weeks that followed, from burns and radiation sickness. The Japanese city called for a shift from nuclear power to renewable energy as it commemorated the 66th anniversary of the atomic bombing.

Like I said in the Fukashima thread:

I should have done nuclear physics instead of computer science.

On August 6, 1945, "nuke" became a new verb. On this day in 1945, "nuke 'em till they glow" became a new phrase.

Well considering 250,000 are going to die from Fukashima sounds like Hiroshima got off easy...

Death is good and necessary... it feeds your belly (an old Laotian saying).

**** you because you are telling the truth and it hurts. It isn't gone though, just buried under current "leadership".

Surprised someone didn't try to sneak in a revisionist history 'the Japanese didn't deserve it' post. It was a war started because the Japanese couldn't back down from their imperialistic policies. The nuclear bombs saved many lives as the Japanese were still not ready to surrender even after seeing Hiroshima. Even after Nagasaki a coup almost took over the government which would have refused surrender. More lives were lost in conventional bombing of Dresden and Tokyo.

Well to be honest the japanese should be thanking us for dropping the bombs. Afterall without them there wouldn't have been any mutants created for their tentacle porn.
