Countdown to Hiroshima: X-Minus 6 Days


Each summer I count down the days to the atomic bombing of Japan (August 6 and August 9, 1945),  marking events from the same day in 1945.  I've written  three books on the subject:  Hiroshima in America (with Robert Jay Lifton),  Atomic Cover-Up (on the decades-long suppression of shocking film shot in the atomic cities by the U.S. military).

July 31, 1945:

--In Germany, Admiral William D. Leahy, chief of staff to Truman--and the highest-ranking U.S. military officer during the war--continues to privately express doubts about the bomb, that it may not work and is not needed,  in any case. (Gen. Eisenhower had just come out against using the Bomb.)  Leahy would later write in his memoirs: 

"It is my opinion that the use of this barbarous weapon at Hiroshima and Nagasaki was of no material assistance in our war against Japan. The Japanese were already defeated and ready to surrender because of the effective sea blockade and the successful bombing with conventional weapons.

"The lethal possibilities of atomic warfare in the future are frightening. My own feeling was that in being the first to use it, we had adopted an ethical standard common to the barbarians of the Dark Ages. I was not taught to make war in that fashion, and wars cannot be won by destroying women and children."

--The assembly of Little Boy is completed. It is ready for use the next day.  But a  typhoon approaching Japan will likely prevent launching an attack. Several days might be  required for weather to clear.

--Secretary of War Stimson sends semi-final draft of statement for Truman to read when first bomb used and he has to explain its use, and the entire bomb project, to the U.S. and the world, with this cover note: "Attached are two copies of the revised statement which has been prepared for release by you as soon as the new weapon is used. This is the statement about which I cabled you last night.  The reason for the haste is that I was informed only yesterday that, weather permitting, it is likely that the weapon will be used as early as August 1st, Pacific Ocean Time, which as you know is a good many hours ahead of Washington time."
It is an atomic bomb. It is a harnessing of the basic power of the universe. The force from which the sun draws its power has been loosed against those who brought war to the Far East.

Padahal, apabila ia mau melanjutkan kembali permainannya, maka ia berkemungkinan mengubah kekalahan menjadi kemenangan dari judi online mereka.
Keuntungan berlimpah sering kali membutakan para pemain judi bola. Mereka pun lupa bahwa kekalahan terkadang membantu mereka menjadi lebih baik. Bisa jadi, kekalahan bukan sekedar ketidakberuntungan. Melainkan, kesiapan pihak pemain yang belum kuat dalam melawan agen bola. Oleh sebab itu, kekalahan demi kekalahan pun mereka peroleh. Supaya kejadian seperti demikian tidak menimpa pemain tersebut, ia pun lebih memilih hengkang dari pertandingan. Padahal, bila ia mau membaca dan mempelajari tips mengatasi judi bola kalah terus, kemungkinan ia akan akan menang melawan bandar bola.
