Atomic Bomb Survivors Re-live Their Stories

“On August 6, 1945, a great terror was thrust upon the world. David Rothauser’s 80 minute documentary, Hibakusha, Our Life to Live, probes the life stories of Japanese, Korean and American survivors of the terror; the atomic bomb attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. There is an URGENCY here. The survivors are dying off. By keeping their memory alive may we no longer live in the fear of nuclear annihilation.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Japan: Tokyo rejects Trump‘s advice about getting nuclear bomb

Tuesday 29th March 2016

TOKYO rejected yesterday US presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s suggestion that Japan and South Korea should acquire nuclear weapons.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told reporters that the country’s three principles of not owning, making or allowing nuclear weapons remained “an important basic policy of the government.”

Mr Trump said in an interview with the New York Times published on Sunday that Japan and South Korea should pay more for their own defence — and that “could mean nuclear.”

Both countries have hosted many thousands of US troops since the end of World War II, which Mr Trump said he would withdraw if the two nations did not increase their own defence spending.

Mr Suga declined to comment specifically on Mr Trump’s statement, saying he was only running for the presidency at that point.

South Korean Defence Ministry spokesman Moon Sang Gyun declined to comment on Mr Trump’s remarks.

So, Donald Trump went too far; even for the militarist right-wing Abe government in Japan.
