Every August, the media and popular culture remind us of the atomic bomb that destroyed Hiroshima, Japan on August 6, 1945. They remind us of the second bomb that destroyed Nagasaki on August 9. These two bombs together killed between 129,000 and 226,000 Japanese civilians.
However, the media never explain why. They never mention that Japanese soldiers had already murdered nearly 19 million unarmed men, women, and children in China. They never mention that until those atomic bombs were dropped, the Japanese military had plans and resources to keep fighting for years and cause the deaths of millions more Americans, Japanese, and Chinese.

If America did not destroy Hiroshima and Nagasaki with atomic bombs, Japan would have kept fighting for two or three more years, causing millions more men, women, and children to die. In fact, the Japanese army almost kept on fighting in spite of those bombs.

#2. Japanese Soldiers Killed Nearly 19 Million Civilians In China With Bullets, Bayonets and Starvation Before America Stopped them.
For years, these atrocities were rarely talked about. The American military wanted a peaceful occupation of Japan by keeping Emperor Hirohito as its leader. It did not want publicity showing that the Emperor’s uncle was responsible for some of the worst war crimes. The new Communist regime in China wanted its people to hate white Americans, not fellow Asians from Japan. Most Japanese people did not want to talk of the evil done by their soldiers during the war.
In 1997, Iris Chang, a 29 year old Chinese-American journalist published “The Rape of Nanking-The Forgotten Holocaust of World War II”. The book caused much controversy in both Communist China and Japan. Iris Chang was viciously criticized, bullied, and ridiculed for her work by government officials, the media, and academics in there. She died from “suicide” in 2004 at age 36.
