6th August and nuclear weapons

A gray world…

with no sun and no green plants…

that is what … the US wants for us

It will not work that way

as living humans

will rise and stop the USA

On the 6th and 9th August 1945, the USA dropped atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. As WWII had already ended on 8th May 1945 and Japan’s allies had been defeated, there was no need to attack Japan, especially with the atom bombs.

But the history reveals the aims behind those bombings: World domination and the plunder of countries without atom bombs.

The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty of 1967 expected commitment only from the countries which did not have nuclear weapons at that date. So, the USA leaning on its Atom Bombs, enjoyed bullying and plundering the countries which were not equipped with nuclear weapons. Endless wars, coups and regime

changes are the evidence of the uncivilized nature of the USA equipped with its atom bombs.

In fact, the 6th August 1945 not only was the mass murder of hundreds of thousands of Japanese people, leaving behind an environment contaminated with enriched uranium which has damaged the lives of generations ever since, it was also the beginning of the US, bullying the world.

The USA has been profiting from its atom bombs till today.

Today the USA breaks the international nuclear agreements but refers to the treaty of 1967 to stop other countries like North Korea and Iran from developing their nuclear research, to prevent them from having any nuclear weapons!

But these countries are trying to protect themselves from further US attacks. The two countries are victims of US war-making and coup-planning against them. No country wishes to be dominated by other countries. Victims such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria… are evidence of the horrible US bullying, a privilege earned by having nuclear weapons.

In the past year the USA has broken international laws, unilaterally pulling out of the INF nuclear missile treaty with Russia and Iran’s nuclear agreement. Niki Hayley, the US delegate at the UN, and Madeleine Albright, the ex US foreign secretary, have announced that Russia is and will always be an enemy of the US.

The reason is that the Soviet Union, and now Russia, have always been for world nuclear disarmament, and believe that the USA should stop attacking other lands and plundering their resources. The evidence is the support it has given to the countries attacked or in danger of US attacks like Vietnam, Cuba, Syria, Venezuela.

The USA has also made some European towns as part of its own nuclear arsenal. Aviano in Italy and Büchel in Germany, with the use of fake stories about UFO sightings and encounters with aliens, are exposing human life on earth to the most dreadful disaster.

The arm race is intensifying as the nuclear powers are getting more modernized. In total, there are estimated to be 13,865 nuclear weapons in the world as of January 2019, according to Stockholm Peace Research Institute Sipri.

Let us stand for No War and

World Nuclear Weapons disarmament

Let us support the Hiroshima Group in Vienna.
