The U.S. is the only country in the world to have dropped a nuclear bomb. And it did not stop at one. It dropped two.
And it didn’t drop them on military targets, it dropped both on civilian populations, thus killing over 200,000 innocent people.
It was one of the greatest war crimes in the history of humanity.
The ‘greater good’ argument is nonsense. Any act of mass murder of innocent people could be argued to be for the greater good. Didn’t Hitler believe he was acting for the ‘greater good’?
Civilians can never be targeted for the greater good. When they are it’s not only a war crime, it’s terrorism.
But it doesn’t end there. According to Article VI of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, NPT, the U.S. had an obligation to disarm:
“Each of the Parties to the Treaty undertakes to pursue negotiations in good faith on effective measures relating to cessation of the nuclear arms race at an early date and to nuclear disarmament, and on a Treaty on general and complete disarmament under strict and effective international control.”
With over 5,000 nuclear warheads, and no good faith discussion for disarmament, the U.S. is thus in breach of the NPT.
Further, the U.S is the only country in the world that repeatedly threatens to (illegally) nuke other nations.
And yet despite all this, the U.S. threatens countries with (illegal) invasions for even trying to build nuclear power stations for peaceful purposes on the basis that the U.S. suspects these countries might be building nuclear weapons and thus breach the NPT!
The hypocrisy truly stinks…
