Hiroshima survivors worry that world will forget
"Exactly 15 minutes past eight in the morning on August 6th, 1945 Japanese time at the moment when the atomic bomb flashed above Hiroshi MMA Miss Yoshiko Sasaki, a clerk in the personnel department of the East Asia, 10 Works had just sat down at her place in the plant office and was turning her head to speak to the girl at the next desk. That rather ordinary sentence is the opening to the extraordinary August 1946 New Yorker article titled Oshima. It was published a year after the United States dropped the first nuclear bomb on that city, a year in which the U. S government had gone to great lengths to conceal the human devastation caused And to depict the bomb as a conventional humane weapon. The writer of the Peace John Hursey, uncovered a very different story reporting on the ground in Japan, author and journalist Leslie Bloome chronicles foresees work and the reaction to it in her new book, Fallout. She joins me now from Los Angeles. Leslie Bloome. Welcome. Thank you. Start with Who? John Hursey Wass and how he came to be the one to tell this story. Oh, John. Her see was a young World War two correspondent who had covered action in different theaters throughout the war for Time magazine. And like many war correspondents, then he was pretty supportive of the U. S military. And he even wrote an almost overly complimentary wartime bio of General Douglas MacArthur and That the U. S military knew him entrusted him would be an important factor in my story and how he eventually got his story about Hiroshi MMA, and I don't want to give away too much. But I will say that how he got in was by being the perfect Trojan horse reporter, The perfect Trojan horse reporter. You've hooked us where we're intrigued when I got there. He didn't report this out as a war correspondent. He focused very much on ordinary people on he picked six of them. Why did he want to tell the story in that way? Well, I mean, the fact of the matter is is that the bombing of Hiroshima was widely reported when it happened, and it was reported as a very big end of days. Story mean there were pictures of the mushroom clouds that were released in pictures, the landscape devastation. But there were no pictures that were released or no stories that were released about the human toll that it happened on the ground there, and the government was really going to enormous lengths to cover up the reality of theater. Tomic aftermath in Hiroshima, Nagasaki They were very concerned with as the former secretary of war, put it, not being seen as having outdone, Hitler and atrocities. So her C and his editors at the New Yorker magazine became determined to tell the story from the point of view of survivors. You know, these are among the on ly humans who have ever experience what it's like to be on the receiving end of nuclear attack. He ultimately picked a widow with young kids, a young female clerk to medics, a priest and a minister with with a young family, and his idea was to create a sense of empathy. In his readers with these individuals, because, after all, not everybody could understand the physics of how the bombs works or visualized. You know, an all out nuclear attack that anyone could relate to being a mother or a father or colleague or doctor who's going about their everyday business. One catastrophe strikes I wonder if you would give us a sense of just one telling story of what he did find when he was there What it was that so shocked American readers who had no idea what was unfolding in Japan. One story that particularly resonated with him. He interviewed a young female clerk who was in her company when the bomb was detonated. This's the clerk I mentioned in the intro exactly one of the most famous introductions in journalistic history, and when the bomb exploded over her factory bookshelves fell upon her, and she was nearly crushed to death by books. And he thought How ironic it was to have somebody nearly crushed by books within the first moments of the atomic age, and literally when he was leaving here, Oshima and standing on the surprisingly intact train station platform, he thought that he was going to have to write about that line. And that's one of the incidents that most resonated with readers. So August 1946 The New Yorker publishes. What was the reaction? Both in the United States and around the world to this story. Well in her sees own words. The reaction was quote explosive mean, I try not to use that word in my book for obvious reasons. But he did, And the article was simply titled here, Oshima, and it comprised nearly the entire contents of the August 31st 1946 issue of The New Yorker. It's sold out immediately. You're even black market copies of it going for, you know, astronomical sums. It was syndicated in its entirety, and this is a 30,000 word story in newspapers across the country and around the world. And editors and reporters and readers were enraged. They were horrified by the testimonies in her sees here, Oshima, and they also began demanding to know what else was the U. S government withholding from the US public And then, when President Truman was asked by a reporter if he had personally read it, he retorted. I never read the New York ER. It just makes me bad. But the fact is, is that the government had been put very much on the defensive. That said, You know, they didn't want to look like they were on the defensive, but they were and they had to scramble to try to reclaim the narrative.

i was not consulted prior to the president's decision to intervene in support of the republic of korea that decision from a military standpoint proved a sound one as we hurled back the invader in decimated his forces our victory was complete in our objectives within reach when when red china intervene with numerically superior ground forces this created a new war an entirely new situation a situation not contemplated when our forces were committed mid against north korean invaders a situation which called for new decisions in the diplomatic sphere to permit the realistic adjustment of military strategy these decisions have not not been forthcoming while no man and his right mind would advocate sending ground forces into continental china and such was never given a thought the new situation did urgently we demand a drastic revision of strategic planning if our political aim was to defeat this new enemy as we had defeated the old apart from the military need as i sought to neutralize allies sanction protection given the enemy north of the blue i felt that military necessity in the conduct of the war made necessary i the intensification of our economic blockading walking is china to the imposition of naval blockade against china coast three at the removal of restrictions on air reconnaissance of china's coastal areas in manchuria area for removal of restrictions on the forces of the republic of china on formosa with logistical support to contribute their effective operations against the common enemy for entertaining entertaining these views all professionally designed to support our forces committed to korea and bring hostilities to an end with the least possible delay and at a saving of countless american working in allied lives i've been severely criticized in lay circles principally abroad despite my understanding that from a military standpoint the above us have been fully shared and the pass by practically every military leader concern with the korean campaign including our own joint chiefs of staff i call for reinforcements bows informed that reinforcements were not available i made clear that if not permitted to destroy the enemy build basis north of the yellow if not permitted to utilize the friendly chinese force of some six six hundred thousand men on formosa if not permitted to blockade the china coast and the chinese reds from getting sichor from without and if there were to be no hope of major reinforcements forcement the position of the command from the military standpoint forbid victory we could hold in korea by maneuver in an approximate area where our supply line advantages advantages were imbalanced with a supply like disadvantages of the enemy but we could hope at best for only an indecisive campaign with terrible constant attrition upon our forces versus if the enemy utilize its full military potential i have constantly called for new political decisions essential to a solution efforts have been made to the store my position it has mm set in effect that i was a warmonger nothing could be further from the truth i know wars few other men now living no it's nothing to me is more revolting i have long advocated is complete abolition as it's very distracting this on both friend and foe has rendered useless as a means of settling international disputes indeed on the second day of september one thousand nine hundred forty five just following the surrender of the japanese nation on the battleship missouri i formally cautioned as follows various methods is through the ages have been attempted to devise an international process to prevent or settle disputes between nations from the very start workable methods were found insofar as individuals individuals citizens were concerned but the mechanics of an instrumentality of large international scope has never been successful military alliances balances of power leagues of nations all intern failed leaving the only path to be by way of the crucible of war the other destructiveness of war now blocks out this alternative we have had our last chance if we will not devise some greater and more equitable system armageddon will be at our door the problem is basically theological and improvement of human my character that will synchronize with our almost matches advances in science art literature and all material culture developments of the past two thousand years it must be of the spirit if we are or to save the flesh but once wars forced upon us there is no other alternative than to imply every means available to bring it to a swift end wars very object is victory it's not prolonged indecision in war there's no substitute for victory there are some who for varying reasons would appease red china they are blind to history is clear lesson lesson for history teaches with unmistakable emphasis that appeasement but begets new and blurrier war it posted no single instance where this end has justified the means were piecemeal has led to more than a sham peace like blackmail at least the basis for new and successfully greater demand until as blackmail violence becomes the only other alternative why am i soldiers asked me surrender military advantages to an enemy in the field i could not answer some may say to avoid spread of the conflict into when all out war with china others to avoid soviet intervention neither explanation seems valid for china is already engaging with a maximum power can commit in the soviet will not necessarily mesh as actions with our moves like a cobra any new enemy will more likely strike whenever it feels that the relativity in military or other potential is in its favor ever on a worldwide basis the tragedy of korea is further heightened by the fact that its military action is confined to territorial limits it condemns that nation which is our purpose to save to suffer the devastating impact of full naval and air bombardments while the enemy sanctuaries are fully protected from such an attack and devastation of the nations of the world korea alone up to now is the sole one which has risked it's all against communism than magnificence of the courage and fortitude of the korean people defies description description they have chosen to risk death rather than slavery their last words to me were don't scuttle the pacific i have just left you're fighting sons in korea

"Into general douglas macarthur's farewell address to congress from april one thousand nine hundred nineteen fifty one mr president mr speaker and distinguished members of the congress i stand on on this arose trump with a sense of deep humility in great pride humility in the wake of those great american architects of our history who have stood here before me pride and the reflection that this is form of legislative debates represents human liberty in the purest form yet device here are centered the hopes and aspirations and faith of the entire human race i do not seeing here as an advocate for any partisan cause for the issues are fundamental and reach beyond the realm of parsing situation they must be resolved on the highest plane of national interest if our course is the proof sound and our future protected i trust therefore the you will do me the justice are receiving being that which i have to say as solely expressing the consideration viewpoints of a fellow american i address you with neither ran core nor bitterness in the feeding twilight in my life but with one purpose in mind to serve my country the issues are global in so interlocked that to consider the problems of one sector oblivious to those of another another is to court disaster for the whole while asia is commonly referred to as the gateway to europe it is no less true that europe is the gateway the asia and the broad influence of the one cannot fail to have its impact on the other there are those who claim our strength is inadequate to protect on both fronts and that we cannot divide our efforts i can think of no greater expression of defeatism if a potential enemy can divide his strength on two fronts it is for us to counter his effort art the communist threat is a global one it's accessible advance in one sector threatens the destruction of every other sector you cannot appease or otherwise surrender to communism in an asia without simultaneously undermining efforts to halt its advance in europe beyond pointing out these general truisms i shall confine my discussion to the general areas of of asia before one may objectively assess the situation now existing there he must comprehend something of asia's passed in the revolutionary changes which have marred her course up to the present presence long exploited by the so called colonial powers with little opportunity to achieve any degree of social justice individual dignity or a higher standard senate of life such as guided by our own noble administration in the philippines the peoples of asia found their opportunity in the war just passed to throw off the shackles of colonialism and now see the dawn of new opportunity a here to for unfiltered dignity and self respect of political freedom mustering half of the earth's population and sixty percent percent of its natural resources these people are rapidly consolidating a new force both moral and material wish to raise the living standard and direct adaptations of the design of modern progress to their own distinct cultural environments whether wanted here so the concept of colonialism or not this is the direction of asian progress and it may not be stopped it is a corollary to the shift of the world economic frontiers as a whole epicenter of the world affairs to rotate back toward the area whence it started rooted in this situation it becomes vital that our own country orient its policies in consonance with the basic evolutionary condition rather than pursue a course blind to the reality algae that the colonial era is now past and the asian peoples covered the right to shape their own free destiny what they seek now is friendly guidance understanding and support not imperious direction the dignity of equality and not the shame of subjugation their prewar standard of life pitifully low is infinitely lower now now in the devastation left in wars wake world ideologies play little part in asian thinking in our little understood what the people strive for is the opportunity for a little more food in their stomachs a little better clothing on their backs a little firmer roof over their heads in the realization of a normal nationalistic urge for political freedom these political social conditions have but an indirect bearing upon our own national security but do form a backdrop tick and temporary planning which must be thoughtfully considered if we are to avoid the pitfalls of unrealism of more direct immediately bearing upon our national security are the changes wrought in the strategic potential of the the pacific ocean in the course of the past war prior there to the western strategic frontier on the united states lay on the literal line of the americas with an expose i learned ceiling extending out through hawaii midway in guam to the philippines that ceiling it proved not an outpost of strength but an avenue of weakness along which the enemy could in in did attack the pacific was a potential area of advance for any predatory force intent upon striking at the bordering land areas all this was changed by our pacific victory our strategic frontier then shifted to embrace the entire pacific ocean which became a vast mode to protect us as long as we held it indeed it acts as a protective shield for for all of the americas in the freelance of the pacific ocean area we control it to the shores of asia by a chain of islands extending in art from the aleutians to the marianna held by us and our free allies from this island chain we can dominate the sea air power and every as yannick port from vladivostok to singapore with seeing airpower in ev report as i said from vladivostok to singapore and prevent any hostile movement into the pacific any predatory attack from asia must be an amphibious thaddeus effort no amphibious force can be successful without control the sea lanes in the air over those lanes and his avenue of advance with naval and air supremacy and our our modest ground element to defend the bases any major attack from continental asia towards us or our friends in the pacific would be doomed to failure under such conditions the pacific civic no longer represents menacing

How Has the Korean War Changed History?
"On June twenty-fifth nineteen fifty North Korean tanks rolled across the thirty eighth parallel the line that separated communist North Korea from US-backed South Korea, as a now, declassified US intelligence cable from Tokyo to Washington concluded, the incursion wasn't just a mere raid, quote the size of the North Korean forces employed, the depth of penetration the intensity of the attack and the landings made miles south of the parallel on the east coast indicated that the North Koreans are engaged in all out offensive to subjugate, South Korea. It was the start of a war that is still not ended a full seven decades later. The Korean war, which ultimately would pit the US against China in the first ever, confrontation between the two superpowers would claim the lives of an estimated two point five million military members and civilians including nearly thirty four thousand Americans the fighting would cease with an armistice on July twenty seventh nineteen fifty three but the Geneva conference of nineteen fifty four failed to produce a peace treaty in the north and south remained tense enemies, and that's the way things have pretty much continued, though in twenty eighteen North Korean dictator Kim Jong UN and South Korean president Mundi een announced that they would work together toward a peace treaty. But after the collapse of February summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong those tensions seemed likely to remain for a while longer. In the US the Korean war is sometimes called the forgotten war, because it's overshadowed by the conflicts that came before, and after it the stirring victory of World War Two, and the lengthy, painful ordeal of the Vietnam war. We spoke with Edward roads. A professor on the faculty of the shar school of policy and government at George Mason University in Fairfax Virginia, who's an expert in American foreign, and national security policy. He said modern Americans don't think about it much. Vietnam was more dramatic. And World War Two is more in victorious. Nevertheless, the overlooked conflict has exerted a powerful influence that still felt today according to roads, the war forever changed the course of US foreign, and national security policy. Compelling the US to accept a permanent military involvement around the globe, even in peacetime. It also helped drive, the creation of a vast US nuclear arsenal to deter possible, communist aggression with the threat of annihilation and a global nuclear arms race. Still continues all this happened, according to roads after career. A nation that had been occupied by the Japanese from nineteen ten to nineteen Forty-five was split into two by the US, and the USSR after World War Two, he explains, it was a practical matter. There were Japanese armies that had retreated into Korea from insurer, and they needed to be disarmed. We split that large task with the Soviet Union the understanding that the Soviets would design the Japanese in the north, and we would do it in the south, but as the Cold War developed between the US and its European allies and the Soviets, the temporary partition turned into a permanent one with the formation of a communist regime headed by Kim Il Sung in the north at an authoritarian pro American government headed by Sigmund, e in the south each regime sought self as the real government of Korea and its rival as illegitimate. Kim Il Sung decided to settle the matter by invading South Korea. And in may nineteen fifty finally obtained reluctant approval from his patron these stallion regime about a month later. Kim launched a surprise attack which initially had devastating result. What's the South Korean forces essentially dissolved the UN Security, Council taking advantage of a Soviet boycott of the body, then passed a measure, calling for member nations to assist the beleaguered South Koreans that mandate enabled US president Harry Truman to respond militarily without having to go to congress for a declaration of war. Up until that point, the US hadn't seen South Korea's having much strategic importance erode said, but when the North Korean tanks rolled across the border, the image that flashed in Truman's mind was that this was a repeat of what the Nazis did his responses to stand up thinking that if we had stood up to Hitler early on the world would have been a better place, an outnumbered contingent of UN forces formed, a desperate line of defense around the only part of South Korea, not yet, captured by the communists and managed to hold off the invaders for two months that gave General Douglas MacArthur, who had been placed in overall command of the UN forces enough time to make an audacious and fibia landing at Inchon near the South Korean capital of Seoul on September fifteenth. Nineteen fifty cutting off the over extended North Koreans MacArthur's forces chased the invaders back north across the thirty eighth parallel and by mid October had captured the North Korean capital of Pyongyang, but MacArthur overconfident kept pushing the North Koreans back to the Yellow River the border with China, China. Responded with a massive counterattack of between thirteen thousand and three hundred thousand troops. This time it was the UN forces who were driven back a bloody stalemate on the ground developed as the US pounded North Korea from the air MacArthur, eventually was relieved of his command by Truman and replaced with general Matthew Ridgway. The US abandoned the idea of total victory and shifted to a holding action against the communist forces road said MacArthur embraced the idea that there's no substitute for victory. You beat the enemy, and they surrender. But Rhodes explained after the Chinese intervention, quote, we're still in a situation where there's got to be a substitute for victory because how are we going to fight the manpower of China? There's a realization that we can't fight this war to victory and it's hard for the American people to accept. The longer. The war stretched on the more popular it became back in the US, many of the soldiers sent to Korea where reservists who had served in World War, Two roads, explained they've got homes and families and jobs, and then they were called up and sent to fight another war. There was a feeling that this wasn't fair. Eventually Truman successor president. Dwight Eisenhower ran on a promise that he would go to Korea and seek an end to the conflict and actually did that a month before his inauguration in nineteen Fifty-three. But though, Eisenhower had ended the fighting the Korean war still shaped his policies road said, Eisenhower looked at this as the wrong war at the wrong time using the wrong weapons, he reaches the conclusion that with the Cold War going on with the Soviets, we have to plan for the long haul. We're going to sustain this kind of military deterrence that led to resources being pumped into the development of a massive nuclear deterrent. The could be used to contain the Soviets. Additionally, Eisenhower began attempting to form licenses with more and more countries in an effort to create a unified front to hold off communist aggression. We also spoke via Email with Charles k Armstrong, the Korea foundation professor of Korean studies in the social sciences at Columbia University. He said, the US was forced to take China more. Seriously as a military power. After fighting twist del mate in the Korean war general MacArthur, had severely underestimated the Chinese military's willingness to confront the US and capacity to fight leading to a bad route for you, enforces, the initial months after China entered the war. China's participation in the Korean war. Also consolidated malls rule and asked the hopes of sub Americans. The communist regime could be rolled back and replaced by Changcai checks nationalists. Armstrong said mouse willingness to support the North Koreans directly as opposed to stallions reluctance helped solidify China North Korean relations, and caused the North Koreans to be more distrustful of the Russians for the US China was seen from the Korean war onward as the primary ally of North Korea. And the primary great power that was an enemy of the US in Korea. Armistice, ended the fighting but North Korea now backed by the Chinese remained as a belligerent enemy to South Korea, the ongoing threatment that US forces couldn't just withdrawn come home Armstrong, notes, the North Korean invasion in the emerging Cold War convinced American policymakers that the US needed a permanent military presence in Asia and Europe in order to contain communist aggression. Additionally, the Korean war helped set the table for another even bloodier, and more painful future conflict, according to Armstrong Korea led directly to the US decision to help the French against communist led insurgency in colonial Vietnam, and then after the French defeat to intervene in support of an anti communist regime in South Vietnam, which blocked an election called for by the nineteen fifty four Geneva conference that helps set the stage for the Vietnam war. Armstrong, said the most lasting legacy of the Korean war for the US was these stablishment of a global military presence over the long term and a commitment to confront communism throughout the world during the Cold War. And for Korea and East Asia ideological and military confrontation that has lasted seven decades that included a US force stationed in South Korea as a deterrent to North Korea, which in turn has a massive array of long range, artillery, and rockets equipped with chemical and biological weapons aimed at Seoul. That's in addition to the nuclear weapons and ballistic missile arsenal. The Trump so far has been unable to persuade the North Korean regime to give up.
