Well it appears Glenn Beck has picked up on something yet again that I was commenting on a few months back. A friend of mine posted the pictures shown below and I sent the following out as two emails back on December 1st, 2010. Be sure to see the follow up post: 46 Years later
Subject: 64 Years Later
Date: December 1, 2010
We have all heard about the undeniable horrors of the after effects of using atomic weapons, the lingering radiation, the wide scale deaths. This is by no means a defense for the use of such weapons, but I thought it might be interesting to see just how ‘lingering’ the devastating effects of such radiation had on the city of Hiroshima, Japan. The attached are pictures of the downtown area where the bomb Little Boy was dropped 64 years ago, containing pproximately 600 milligrams of uranium 235. It exploded with energy between 13 and 18 kilotons of TNT (54 and 75 TJ) (estimates vary) and killed approximately 140,000 people.
