Testing testing - 9.8.1945

Flying over towering infernos this day seventy years ago. Neither Hiroshima 6.8.1945 nor Nagasaki 9.8.1945 were important for the sake of the actual warfare. Japan would have been forced to surrender anyway. But bombing was important because of all the money put into the developing of  the A-bomb. And testing in the laboratory also known as Hiroshima was not enough, because the bomb in Nagasaki was a slightly different type, another nightmare brand.

Harry Truman was then in charge as President of the United States of America, and for him this was not a big deal. Just listen to him:
"I think one man is just as good as another so long as he’s not a nigger or a Chinaman. Uncle Will says that the Lord made a White man from dust, a nigger from mud, then He threw up what was left and it came down a Chinaman. He does hate Chinese and Japs. So do I. It is race prejudice, I guess. But I am strongly of the opinion Negroes ought to be in Africa, Yellow men in Asia and White men in Europe and America."
Donald Trump, fighting for the position as the republican candidate in the USA presidential election 2016, celebrated the year day of Hiroshima 6.8.2015 with stating that "it's okay to call women 'fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals'".

If really elected, Donald Trump would be the 12:th man in the row after Harry Truman, and by judging his oral outcomings, he would also turn the clock hand twelve hours back, to the time of Truman. True or not, we'll see.
