Japan’s Nagasaki marks 75 years since atomic bombing

The Japanese city of Nagasaki on Sunday commemorated the 75th anniversary of its destruction by a USA atomic bomb, with its mayor and the head of the United Nations warning against a nuclear arms race. It is inhumane, it is a crime against humanity, and it has led to the modern atomic age and threat of nuclear war.

Future American presidents from both celebrations mainly concurred with Truman on this point.

Japan, which relies heavily on the nuclear-armed United States for its protection and is anxious about the threat posed by North Korea's obscure nuclear programme, has chosen not to sign the agreement.

"Among the nuclear-weapon states and countries under the nuclear umbrella, there have been voices stating that it is too early for such a treaty".

In 2016, Barack Obama became the first sitting United States president to visit Hiroshima.

Despite such declarations and duplicated efforts at the greatest levels of federal government to restriction The Bomb, it is still alive and well.

It has been debated endlessly whether America should have used atomic bombs to kill people to bring a sudden end of the war.

At 11:02 a.m. on August 9, 1945, the U.S. B-29 bomber Bockscar dropped a 4.5-ton (10,000-pound) plutonium bomb dubbed "Fat Man" on Nagasaki, leaving more than 70,000 dead by the year's end. He offered no apology for the attack but embraced survivors and called for a world free of nuclear weapons.

The confirmation of this stringent safety standard confirms that Crew Dragon is statistically much safer than Shuttle. They will perform tests on Crew Dragon in addition to conducting research and other tasks with the space station crew.

The US dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, killing around 140,000 people.

A high school student said, "As atomic bomb survivors get older, I think it's really up to us, the younger generation, to create a peaceful future".

He worked at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd.'s Nagasaki Shipyard when the plutonium bomb detonated.

People are praying for the victims and sending messages of hope and determination to the world "to make Nagasaki the last atomic-bombed city".

"We don't want anyone else to have to go through this".

"I hope young people will receive this baton of peace and keep running".

Many peace events, including survivors' talks leading up to the anniversary, were cancelled because of the coronavirus, but some survivors have teamed with students and pacifist groups to speak at online events.

This year's ceremony was restricted to about 500 guests due to the coronavirus pandemic.
