In 1957, he was recognized as a hibakusha (explosion-affected person) of the Nagasaki bombing, but it was not until March 24, 2009, that the government of Japan officially recognized his presence in Hiroshima three days earlier. He died of stomach cancer on January 4, 2010, at the age of 93.

Typical. F###ing. Bureaucrats.

Still, 93, can't complain.

Driving home, heard a story of cops being shot at, and running to hide in McDonalds, what the ****, won't chase stolen cars, won't break up gang assembly's of more than 4-5 people, don't even like to break up those out of control parties at BnB's etc, how times have changed.

Have you seen some of the modern day cops? The general public would be in danger if they pulled out a pistol.

Besides, a shotty was utilised here, so hiding was a smart choice.

Firebombing is worse than atomic weaponry and was even more so in Japan cos of the predominantly wooden buildings.
The wider morality of strategic and unnecessary bombing really came to the fore in the post-war trials. It’s probably why the Luftwaffe command got it a tad easier during war crime prosecutions. Didn’t want to set a precedent.

There are comments under that video saying this was something completely different days ago.

I guess we'll know soon enough.
Probably right on the time frame, but for an authoritarian government, Beijing has shown quite a bit of restraint. Something has got to give sooner rather than later. Assad would have sent the troops in already.
