If the true goal was to impress the Russians, impress in a negative way, then why not drop one nuclear bomb somewhere on mainland China close to the Russian border? Does not have to be on a population center. It can be on barren desert land and it would produce the desired effect. Remember, the US effectively control Chinese airspace at that time. Not only that, Chiang Kai-shek was a US ally and such a demo would symbolically kill two communist birds with one stone: Stalin and Mao.

Nukes

I haven't yet read the OP's article but I thought I'd throw in my speculation.The weapons needed to be tested both for their physical performance and for their long term effects on human populations.Allied troops had not yet landed on Honshu.This therefore was the only logical location the weapons could be tested.The Zionist banksters were not out to impress any particluar section of the world's populace but mankind as a whole.After all the New World Order had been in place at least since 1917.WW2 was after all a giant contrived bloodbath whose motivation was primarily profits,advances in military technology,the creation of Israel,ritual sacrifice and so on.The nuking of the two Japanese cities was icing on the cake.
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
It's amazing how the building ate the plane !!!
Imagine those fragile wings cutting slots in massive steel columns !!!!!
How STUPID can they think the people are to believe that crap ??!!

That's complete BS

Do you know what it took to take Iwo Jima?

The Japanese military made a determined effort to prevent the Emperor's broadcast, if you forgot

A mainland invasion would have cost a lot of lives and destroyed Japan.

EVERYONE who has said anything about racial prejudice being the basis for why A-bombs where dropped  ...

little edisonone is another closet racist, living in his carefully exclusive china town in Canada, crying racism when indeed he is a racist, but bizarrely holding modern Western liberal principles and applying them retrospectively to a time where such principles did not apply in China or Japan, and were won in bloodshed.

dropping the bomb on Japan was a quick and utilitarian method of ending Japanese militarism. Unpleasant, yes, but the bushido code left little option.

Hirohito also faced internal revolt if he broadcast a surrender. The attempted military coup (The Kyūjō Incident) is well documented. The Tokyo Imperial Palace was surrounded and a search conducted to find the Emperor's vinyl, which was to announce a formal surrender.

Haters will hate. China was grateful. Edisone1, how about you?

it was said, that discreetly, that Japan had approached washington with an offer of a ceasefire. my speculation for such a measure by japan (providing the carbon dating of it is correct and have never been tampered with) is that she foresaw the possibilities of ending up the way Hitler's Germany had and she was trying to wiggle and slide her way out of the predicament with the offer of a cease fire. smart move of course but the anglos say "no way" -- not after having violated us whites in asia and not after washington's miscalculations of what was pearl harbour --  she was thus marked for the nuke.
Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?
