Remember Hiroshima. The Bourbon whiskey story

Today marks the 73rd year since the notorious A-bomb attack on Hiroshima.

Pandemonium took over the Americans against Japan on Aug.6, 1945.

Journalist Paul Ham mentions in his book “Hiroshima Nagasaki” as follows.

“There is not a frisson of concern or regret here at the human cost. Observation and testing of the A-boom victims, not their treatment, were the priorities of the American scientific teams. ”

It’s highly regrettable to say the least. When thousands of innocent civilians were annihilated ‘instantly’, the figure amounting to 140,000 by the end of 1945 – it is also worth noting that according to the Hiroshima city government report, 308,725 names have been registered as the victims of the ruthless attack. This means that over 160,000 people had suffered from radiation sickness in the aftermath of the bombing.

I truly recommend you read “Kuroi Ame” (Black Rain) by Ibuse Masuji to understand what this “radiation sickness” is all about. An unfathomable tragedy, a pure war crime that downplayed mankind is what you will learn there.

U.S President Barack Obama visited Hiroshima in May 2016, as the first sitting American president. The move of redemption was indeed poignant, though he did not apologize on behalf of his fellow Americans bearing in mind that the majority of Americans today still “justifies A-bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki” – well that’s how they are taught in high schools of the U.S. But what they don’t know, or learn is that Japan had already been de facto well defeated prior to the inhumane bombing, which targeted thousands of men, women and children.

Americans in the mid south often enjoy the term “Remember Pearl Harbor”. But the Japanese attack then targeted military targets, and not civilians. Over two thousand U.S servicemen died. This is a crucial difference compared to over 300,000 CIVILIAN CASUALTIES in Hiroshima. And moreover, when some of my great American friends point out that the Pearl Harbor attack was “sneaky” – a term often used, I cannot help but respond by pointing out the infamous “Battle of Tonking” in Vietnam on August 2, 1964 when the U.S made a sneaky attack on the North Vietnamese by claiming that “they had been attacked by Uncle Ho” – which was later revealed by the New York Times that it was nothing but a hype. A cooked up lie.

That’s war.

And neither do I justify everything Japan did during that war.

Inevitably today marks the 73rd year that claimed the lives of thousands in Hiroshima. And as a Japanese national, I cannot help but speak out on behalf of the deceased that it is a petty nonsense to take it for granted the unsubstantiated myths – that “A-bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki saved 1,000,000 American lives”. Truman simply used this narrative to justify his means. As Paul Ham has clearly pointed out, the Washington dropped the 2 bombs for the sake of dropping it.

As a human experiment.

Lastly, I want to wrap up the blog by revealing a shocking piece of story.

According to the book I ready recently – “The Day Man Lost” (Kodansha International Publishers/1972) , the prominent author Hando Kaztoshi writes;

“Enola Gay landed at the northern airfield of Tinian Island at 2:58 p.m on August 6th. The twelve crew members were greeted by hundreds of their fellow U.S servicemen to celebrate the success of the mission.

The club of commissioned officers was filled with buoyant laughter. That evening, a flamboyant celebration party was held on the island and by midnight, some passed out after consuming dozens of Bourbon whiskey bottles”.

Such a behavior well contradicts to the teachings of Christianity.

While men, women and children were left totally vanquished in Hiroshima, the fact that these ‘christian’ Americans were cheering like animals gives me the creeps. Racism was rampant in “White America” back in 1945 of course, and the “Japs” were considered nothing but a bunch of vulgar yellow monkeys. The Japanese were downplayed as an inferior race of Asia. Even the famous New York Times frequently used the term JAPS during the war.

I do not ask for any sort of penitence from the Americans today. But what I do demand is that they learn from the insane folly of their ancestors – who cheered and celebrated with Bourbon whiskey a couple of hours after dropping the weapon of mass destruction.

The lack of sensible humanity is extremely dangerous, given the fact that even North Korea possesses the sinister weapon today.

RIP all the victims of WW2.

Your Obedient Servant,

「過ちは二度とくりかへしません」と言った日本人。日本に核を落とすと言った、北朝鮮

北の肥満児が、元気である。

その名も、金正恩。

‘Last Samurai’ とは、トム・ソーヤでもトム・クルーズのことでもない。渡辺謙など、それどころではない。

三島由紀夫。

ぼくが知る限り、1970年11月25日に市ヶ谷で切腹した彼ぞ、Last Samurai に相応しい男である。

そんな彼が、「民族的憤激を思ひ起こせ – 私の中のヒロシマ」という寄稿文を書いたのは、昭和四十二年の八月のことであった。

その中で、ミシマはこう述べている。

『ヒロシマ。ナチのユダヤ人虐殺。まぎれもなくそれは史上、二大虐殺行為である。日本人は、「過ちは二度とくりかへしません」といった。原爆に対する日本人の民族的憤激を正当に表現した文字は、終戦の詔勅の「五内為に裂ク」といふ一節以外に、私は知らない』

民族的憤激を忘れた日本人

我々の祖先は、原爆をトランプ氏の先輩大統領ルーズヴェルト&トゥルーマン(前者が作製、後者が投下)によって二度と落とされたにも関わらず、なぜか「二度とくりかへしません」と言ったそうな。少なくともヒロシマの慰霊碑には、そう刻まれている。

かなり不可解な文面であることは言うまでもないが、(アメリカ政府が言うならば、まだ理解できる)いずれにせよ、おデブさんの金正恩率いる北朝鮮は「先制攻撃されたら、在日米軍基地に向け核をぶっ放す」と、事実上明言。日本人がいくら’くりかへしません’ と言ったところで、現実はその日本人が去勢された子羊であることを、痛ましいほど鮮明に浮かび上がらせる。

そこで考えてみよう。

在日米軍基地とは、すなわち日本領土のことである。130個以上という、とてつもなく多くの米軍基地が我が国にはある。それ自体が異常だがそれもそのはず、日本は「自分で自分を守れない国」だそうですので。六本木ヒルズとミッドタウンのちょうど目の前にも’赤坂通信センター’ なるヘリポート二つ整備した米軍基地がある。北朝鮮の「トランプ先制攻撃には、核で対応する」という’脅し’ のターゲットには、理屈上はTOKYOオリンピック2020会場から自転車でわずか5分のこの場所も、天現寺交差点の米軍基地「ホテル ニューサンノー」も、横田基地など首都圏すべてが含まれているわけだ。

にもかかわらず、北朝鮮のこうした核挑発に対しミシマの言う「民族的憤激」を果たして今日の日本人が抱いているかと言えば、間違いなく答えは否だろう。ヒロシマに至っては、核ミサイルを憂慮憤慨するどころか、同市のプロフェッショナル野球チームの10連勝で盛り上がっているくらいなのだから。

なにも四六時中怒れとは毛頭言わないが、今日の非常時に憤激一つできない国家に果たして未来などあるのだろうか。

最後にもう一つ、付け加えておきたい事。それは、どの新聞もどのネット記事にも日本の自衛隊の存在がゼロだということに他ならない。

これが極めて異常だと感じているのは、果たしてうるさい日本人だけだろうか?!

「沖縄の在日米軍基地で、アメリカ軍が不測の事態に備えスタンバイしている」という類のものは溢れているが、そこには「自衛隊」のカケラもない。これが戦後72年もの間、ワシントンにべったり追従してきた半永久米軍基地国家ジャパーンの実態かと思うと、もう情けなさを通り越してOMG。

核は、使えない兵器ということになっている。

ただ、相手は兄を真昼間のクアラルンプールで暗殺してしまう連中だ。恐ろしいことだが、核の使用も十分に考えられる。たとえ金王朝が地上から吹っ飛ぼうとも。

金正恩の最近の激太りも、まったくの想定外だった。ミシマのかつての’文士仲間’ 石原慎太郎も今では首がなくなってしまったが、あの肥満児も黒海キャヴィアの食べ過ぎかもう頭と胴体が、真っ直ぐに直結してしまっている。

余談だが、平和ボケ子羊国家の防衛軍 (Self Defense Forces) のトップにいるのが、あの田舎っぺ風の泣いてばかりのおばさんかと思うと、これまた正直いたたまれなくなる。

ああ、今日もミシマが泣いている。

原爆、holocaust, 北朝鮮。

民族的憤激、なう。

Good Rising!

North Korea’s Kim Jong un should fight SUMO champ Kisenosato

Mt.Fuji is the most classic, aesthetic and symmetric mountain in the world as far as I know. And it is proven by the mere fact that it’s beauty is renowned not only domestically, but also internationally.

“Harumafuji” and “Terunofuji” are both distinguished Mongolian SUMO wrestlers, though their name includes the word ‘FUJI’.

And yesterday, the new Yokozuna or Grand Champion Kisenosato crushed Terunofuji twice to win the Spring SUMO tournament, according to the Associated Press. Its’ truly a little surprise that AP has posted this article on Japan’s indigenous  ‘sport’ – which I must say is in a way an incorrect term, since SUMO is NOT precisely a sport but a Shinto ritual that roots back 1500 years ago.

If you are a foreigner, you may wonder “Boy, aren’t these FATTYS obese! Eating too much rice bowls and ramens?”.

Well, I do not deny that. But remember, these boys are not just a fatty like Mr Michael Moore, but DO have huge muscles and they also train their body (especially the hip-joint between the legs) to make it extremely soft in order to prevent serious injuries.

 

Now.

 

People in North Korea are purportedly eating shoes.

ASICS? NIKE? Onizuka Tiger?! Adidas?!  Who knows. Malnutrition seems rampant, since their authoritarian regime is keen on flooding 90% of its annual budget into its nuclear missile program. Not enough food on the table, and its citizens are skin and bones.

But there’s just one exception. Yes, the “Fatty” Sumo-wrestler-like guy, Kim Jong un.
