President Roosevelt died in July, 1945 when Vice-President Truman took over as president. He decided to nuke Japan in August, 1845. Why bring this past history up now? It's due to false historical claims about WW II 1945 bombing of Japan in August 6 on Hiroshima and in August 9 on Nagasaki. These lingering long-lived false claims that such an attack would save the lives of U.S. soldiers are now moot points, even though today people still think the U.S. nuclear bombs would saved many lives of American soldiers. War economy nations also must have enemies to thrive in arms races and the latest most demonizing weaponry. Harry Truman said "If I had it to do it all over again, I would do it"–with no apologizing. This action caused the deaths of 85,million people on both sides including the aftermath of toxic fallout causing cancers of every kind. Preceding conventional fire bombing of Tokyo from 1944 to 1945 is included in this deadly figure. Most of the Japanese deaths were civilians. Nuclear bombs invented for genocide and massive devastation were never used again by any other U.S. president or any other nation. Harry Truman was glad to drop the bombs on Japan. He expressed they needed to be tried on human beings as "experiments." He was attempting to justify the government spending billions during the Manhattan Project in which even Los Alamos nuclear physicists who invented them said they would never use such treacherous bombs on human beings. Even General Dwight D. Eisenhower said it was not necessary to drop the bombs. Japan was ready to surrender right after the Potsdam Declaration of July 1945 demanding Japan to surrender. They were already willing to call it quits for no more Japanese deaths and to save "face." Admiral William Leahy, de facto Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff, highest ranking officer, wrote that dropping the bomb was barbaric and resembled the Dark Ages. Leahy wrote, "I was taught to not do such a thing and that wars should not destroy women and children." General Douglas MacArthur hadn't even been asked about his feelings. But when he was finally questioned he wrote that there was no military justification for such utter total destruction in Japan, Prior to the nuclear bombing the U.S. and allies had carpet bombed Japan from 1944 to 1945 with enough conventional bombs that equaled the power of at least one nuclear bomb.
