Watch this movie:

"Oscar® award-winning filmmaker Steven Okazaki revisits the [atomic] bombings of [Hiroshima and Nagasaki] and shares the stories of the only people who survived a nuclear attack."

One of the best and most intimate portraits of this absolutely amoral war-crime instigated in cold-blood by the US government in the final days of WW II.

How our governing elite ever decided that dropping a-bombs on innocent civilians (instead of carefully selected military targets) was the best course of action is sad, tragic, unforgivable. In those moments, THEY BECAME EVIL INCARNATE..and as Oppenheimer quoted in the moments after he witnessed the Trinity test, "THE DESTROYERS OF WORLDS."

War may be part of life on earth, but it is possible to wage it with honor. This use of weaponry was cowardly, dishonorable, and will live in infamy for all time.

See the mothers and babies melt. Rent it from Netflix.
