After 70 years of Hiroshima bombing did we learn anything?

Although the world today condemns the attack, there are more powerful and potentially devastating nuclear weapons being manufactured and stored by the same people. Isn't this hypocrisy?

As I read through the headlines as to how the world remembers the infamous Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombing by the U.S., with all sympathy for those who died or got affected, and with all disgust for those who decided to carry out such a heinous act, I cannot pretend to ignore that although the world today condemns the attack and nuclear weapons in general, there are more powerful and potentially devastating nuclear weapons being manufactured and stored by the same people. Isn’t this hypocrisy? Or is it just the nature of modern politics?

In this article, on the power of Vedic science, it is shown how the invention of atomic bomb is not something extraordinary that the modern scientists have invented. Such weapons and million-fold more powerful weapons existed during the Vedic era.

And the bombs were not carried by airships but instantly generated or mobilized merely by vibrating sanskrit mantras, something similar to today’s voice commands. One more feature was, unlike the present-day nuclear warheads, the arrows carrying such weapons were able to hit a specific target, or even a person, without destroying all that was be around it.

War is not a good solution but it is not absolutely unnecessary as well.  Lord Krishna wanted to avoid the historical Mahabharat war but it did, nonetheless, take place, and He was the one who made sure Arjuna fought it to victory. This was absolutely necessary and that’s why it happened although Lord Krishna did, in order to teach the world the message of peace, attempt to thwart it initially.

Bells tolled in Hiroshima on Thursday as tens of thousands of people gathered to mark 70 years to the day since the city was destroyed by an atomic bomb.

Japan’s prime minister Shinzo Abe and foreign delegates were among the tens of thousands who congregated at the Peace Memorial Park to observe a moment of silence at 8:15 am local time (2315 GMT), when the detonation turned the western Japanese city into an inferno.

The now-bustling city’s mayor Kazumi Matsui said nuclear weapons were an “absolute evil” as he urged the world to put an end to them forever.

“To coexist we must abolish the absolute evil and ultimate inhumanity that are nuclear weapons. Now is the time to start taking action,” he said in his speech.

Representatives of more than 100 countries, including the US ambassador to Japan, Caroline Kennedy, were among those marking the anniversary.

Standing in the shadow of the shell of what was then the prefectural industrial promotion hall – now known simply as the atomic bomb dome – they heard messages from survivors and local children and the city’s mayor.

The Enola Gay, named after the mother of the plane’s pilot, Brig Gen Paul Tibbets, was carrying a 16 kiloton atomic bomb, nicknamed Little Boy; its target was Hiroshima, a port and major army base in western Japan, six hours’ flying time away.

As dawn broke in Hiroshima, its 340,000 residents were recovering from another sleepless night of false alarms after radar picked up a succession of US bombers flying overhead on missions further south.
