1. A proposito di #destra e #sinistra, in questi giorni concitati per le #alleanzeelettorali, tragici per le #guerre e le crescenti tensioni internazionali, che cadono tra l'anniversario di #Hiroshima e di #Nagasaki, è opportuno rifocalizzare l'avvertimento di #CarloCassola:
2."Chi non capisce che il #disarmo è il terreno dello scontro decisivo tra #progresso e #reazione, tra #civiltà e #barbarie, è di #destra anche se si proclama di #sinistra. In altre parole, o la sinistra vincerà la battaglia della #pace o non avrà un'occasione di farsi valere >
3. perché il mondo salterà in aria".

Qualcuno doveva pur ricordarlo

Am 6. August 1945 um 8 Uhr 15 wurde die Atombombe #LittleBoy in 580m Höhe über #Hiroshima vom B29-Flugzeug #EnolaGay abgeworfen. Die Explosionskraft der Atombombe entsprach 12,5 Kilotonnen TNT.
In einem Umkreis von 0,5 Km um den #GroundZero waren 90 Prozent der Menschen sofort tot. Die Temperatur am Hypozentrum betrug für etwa eine Sekunde ca. 3000 - 4000 Grad Celsius. An dieser Stelle verdampfte alles. #Hiroshima

Menschen, die sich im Explosionszentrum aufhielten, verbrannten vollständig und hinterließen in einigen Fällen ihre Schatten an stehen gebliebenen Hauswänden, die sie für einen Moment von der Hitzestrahlung abgeschirmt hatten. #Hiroshima

This is the start of the daily thread documenting #Russia's war of choice on #Ukraine.

It's Day 164 if you're counting (me too!)
All the news in one place, check back throughout the day.

DMs open for tips, all appreciated, as are any coffees donated (see my profile)😉
We ended yesterday wondering if the Dar'ivky Bridge just outside occupied #Kherson had been hit.

No update on that yet, but #Ukraine has claimed hits on 6 ammo dumps, numerous weapons and command posts in #Chornobaivka #Oleshki #Beryslav #Bruskinskyi and Kherson city itself.
#Ukraine is already hitting #Russia's stores again this morning.

This video from occupied #Makiivka (RU #Makeevka) - a lot of explosions followed the first strike, so looks likely to be an another ammunition dump.

The New York City Emergency Management Department has posted a public service announcement advising residents what they should do in the event of a #NuclearAttack 1/
Incredibly, the video begins: "So there's been a nuclear attack. Don't ask me how or why. Just know that the big one has hit." Then comes the advice: 1) Get inside; 2) Stay inside, stay away from windows, and shower if exposed to radioactive fallout; 3) Stay tuned. 2/
Just think how many lives might have been saved if the people of #Hiroshima and #Nagasaki had taken these steps! What the fantasists who created the video fail to mention is that a hydrogen bomb strike would reduce most of New York City to flaming rubble within seconds. 3/

Nella caccia ai #pacifisti scatenata sui tanti #giornali, trasformati in fogli di #propaganda interventista, non viene risparmiato neanche #AldoCapitini, tirato tra chi vuole arruorarlo tra i sostenitori della via armata alla #pace e quelli che lo tacciano di #antiamericanismo
Due suggerimenti: primo leggete gli scritti del fondatore del @movnonviolento; secondo mettetevi d'accordo. Per cominciare, una proposta di letttura: "La #nonviolenza è strettamente congiunta col punto a cui è giunta la #guerra, con la sua attrezzatura tecnica e le #arminucleari
L’esasperazione della ferocia e della vastità distruttiva della #guerra, specialmente dopo #Hiroshima, ha posto il problema di arrivare a un altro modo di condurre le lotte e la stessa #difesa. Come ci si difende da missili che in pochi minuti distruggono città industrie, civili?

🚨The exciting part of the year for Japanese politics is rapidly approaching: with the race for the leadership of the LDP upon us, the general election for the Lower House is getting closer and closer.📆

Reports say that it could take place by Mid-October! Thus, this project:➕ Image
I would like to make a rundown on the 289 Single-Member Districts that compose part of the Lower House of the Japanese Diet.

Let's see the conditions of each district, the candidates & how the Japanese media & history see the race. Join me and follow along! In for a long ride🎢
Yes. I'm THAT crazy. LOL

All in with the 289 districts. Let's do it for fun and in order to learn more (myself included) about JP politics.

Please don't hesitate to add info, point out mistakes or anything you want! #JapanPolitics

From 1983-2019 #MSM regularly referred to Oct 1983 US Marine barracks explosion in Beirut as "the largest NON-NUCLEAR explosion ever." A year ago MSM & so-called "alternative media" #SCAM hijacked that phrase for the Aug 2020 Beirut blast. But #WTF does it mean?
1/ ImageImage
A year ago so-called “fact checkers” WITHIN HOURS had definitively concluded the Aug 2020 Beirut blast was NOT nuclear rather caused by 2750 tons of ammonium nitrate. #MSM outlets promptly proclaimed “one of the largest NON-NUCLEAR blasts in history"
2/… ImageImage
After being repeated ad nauseam over the past year, on the one-year anniversary yesterday practically every #MSM & #SCAM outlet treated the idea that the Aug 2020 Beirut blast was "one of the largest NON-NUCLEAR blasts in history" as a TRUISM, albeit one that NEEDED repeating

@pat_laffreuse 🚨Harry #Truman dont le surnom était "Conduis-les en enfer" prône dans l'escalier de la Maison Blanche et #DonaldTrump et son épouse posent pour la photo de fin d'année ! Un Républicain appréciant un Démocrate ? Vous voyez bien que c'est "blanc bonnet et bonnet blanc," -Suite-
@pat_laffreuse tous des franc-maçons. La célèbre photo après l'élection de 1948 sur la manchette du journal de Chicago qu'il nous montre, est une erreur et il la brandit avec le sourire démoniaque du criminel qui vient de commettre deux crimes contre l'humanité au #Japon. -Suite-
@pat_laffreuse Démocrate Baptiste, 33ème Président évidemment ! Quelle place de choix pour le Grand Maître de la loge maçonnique du Missouri qui a lâché deux bombes atomiques sur #Nagasaki et #Hiroshima en août 1945. Hiroshima n'était pas qu'une simple base militaire. -Suite-

#VeteransDay Was Originally #ArmisticeDay

"Over one hundred years ago the world celebrated #peace as a universal principle. #WWI had just ended and nations mourning their dead collectively called for an end to all #wars#ArmisticeDay was born and was designated as “a day to be dedicated to the cause...

Today is the 75th anniversary of the #Nagasaki75 atomic blast. It was the second of two atomic bombs dropped on Japan which would end WWII.

The first was dropped on Hiroshima 3 days prior. @abc7davidono beautifully tells one survivor’s story. @ABC7…
On a personal note, I had the chance to visit the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum a few years ago.

My Japanese grandmother was living in Osaka at the time so she was physically OK. But she still couldn’t go inside the museum. 75 years later it’s still too painful. #広島 Image
I took some photos of some of the striking and devastating artifacts inside the museum. Like this wall. It’s shows the “black rain” that rained all over the city shortly after the bombing. It’s believed the rain was full of radioactive materials. #HiroshimaNagasaki75 #広島 Image

3 jours après l'explosion de la bombe atomique à #Hiroshima, c'est Nagasaki qui fut touchée le 09 août 1945.

Le Japon ne résista pas à ce 2eme coup de massue mais un homme si !

Il s'appelle Tsutomu Yamaguchi et il a survécu aux 2 bombes.
Voici sa folle histoire ! #Thread ⤵️ Image
L'occasion était parfaite pour vous raconter cette histoire.

Nous sommes donc à la toute fin de la guerre du Pacifique et les USA firent parler toute leur force de frappe en envoyant 2 bombes atomiques sur Hiroshima et Nagasaki.

Bilan : environ 250 000 morts. ImageImage
En théorie, les chances de survie étaient extrêmement minces si vous vous trouviez dans les zones de bombardement d'Hiroshima et Nagasaki.

Mais un homme défia la "logique" en étant la seule personne de l'histoire à survivre aux 2 bombes nucléaires : Tsutomu Yamaguchi. Image

#BeirutExplosion has left me shocked. More than that, it was a petition signed by 60,000 Lebanese seeking to "place Lebanon under French mandate for the next 10 years", they continue "in order to establish a clean and durable governance" (
Lebanon used to be a French colony until 1943. 60,000 people equals almost 1% of the population. It's a scary number as "those engaging a threshold of 3.5% of the population have never failed to bring about change" (
Meaning, the level of internalised colonialism is so high that people are asking the coloniser to step in. On August 6th (the anniversary of bombing #Hiroshima by the US), French President #EmmanuelMacron became the first head of state to tour Beirut after the explosion.

#Hilo🧵A 75 años del ataque a #Hiroshima y #Nagasaki , Kasumi Matsui, alcalde de Hiroshima, ha pedido que Japón se sume al Tratado de No Proliferación Nuclear en memoria a las víctimas.

Aquí les dejamos cuatro desgarradoras historias de supervivientes a este suceso. ⬇️⬇️⬇️ Image
💥La historia señala que el número de muertos por el impacto de la bomba lanzada por el “Enola Gay” sobre Hiroshima, fue de 140 mil y miles más que lograron sobrevivir al hongo atómico sufrieron los efectos de la radiación y de la lluvia ácida. ImageImage
😣El 9 de agosto, Nagasaki fue el objetivo y al menos 90 mil personas murieron al instante en que la bomba estalló y que se desató un infierno de temperaturas nunca vistas. ImageImage

Today is the 75th anniversary of the bombing of #Hiroshima.

It was the 1st time a nuclear weapon was used in anger & it left a searing impression on the world.

But that impression is fading, and with it the political consensus to address arms control. #Hiroshima75 <thread>
Eleven United States Senators were born before Hiroshima.

Of those, only five were older than 5 years old when the bomb was dropped.

Of the five who were old enough to remember that event, only one, @SenFeinstein, is a champion for non-proliferation.
None of the four Republican Senators old enough to remember Hiroshima voted in support of New START, the signature nuclear arms control agreement between the US and Russia.

New START is up for renewal in the beginning of 2021, and the negotiations are taking place right now.

Little Boy y Fat Man: ese era el nombre de las dos bombas atómicas que se utilizaron por primera vez en una guerra.

El mundo nunca fue el mismo tras el 6 y el 9 de agosto de 1945, cuando EE.UU lanzó sobre Hiroshima y Nagasaki dos armas sin precedentes.
Han pasado 75 años.
El presidente de EE. UU. Harry Truman había exigido a Japón una rendición rápida e incondicional.

A las 8:15 de la mañana del 6 de agosto de 1945 fue arrojada sobre Hiroshima la bomba nuclear Little Boy.
La temperatura se elevó hasta un millón de grados centígrados. ImageImageImageImage
La explosión devastó todo en dos kilómetros a la redonda del epicentro. Se estima que entre 60 000 y 80 000 personas murieron instantáneamente.
"Little Boy" transportaba 63 kilos de uranio enriquecido. ImageImageImage

In 2008, I visited #Hiroshima @Rotary GSE visit from Tasmania.
Here is my diary entry of my visit to the museum and Peace park.
This day 6 August 1945, what happened there is something we should never forget and should let every generation know the dangers of nuclear ☢️ war. ImageImage
A few photos from #Hiroshima ImageImageImageImage
Everyone must visit #Hiroshima at least once in their lifetime to grasp the magnitude of what happened on 6 August 1945 at 8:15 AM ImageImageImageImage

Il #6agosto 1945 il bombardiere americano Enola Gay sganciò l'atomica su #Hiroshima, tre giorni dopo fece altrettanto su #Nagasaki.
L'insensato e criminale atto di guerra statunitense provocò almeno 240.000 morti e danni permanenti a persone e cose. >>> Image
Negli anni abbiamo sentito parlare dell'atto criminale di guerra deciso dal paese alleato, amico di tutti, come di una "violenza necessaria". >>>
Nel 2016 Obama andò in visita ufficiale a Hiroshima, la prima volta per un presidente americano, ma il già premio Nobel per la pace non ritenne opportuno fare le sue scuse. Nel 2017 Mattarella disse che Hiroshima fu un incidente, come dire una cosa inevitabile, una fatalità. >>>

Avevo appena 13 anni quando gli Stati Uniti hanno fatto esplodere la prima bomba atomica sulla mia città, #Hiroshima. Lo ricordo ancora chiaramente: alle 8:15 ho visto un lampo accecante bianco-azzurrognolo dalla finestra. Ricordo la sensazione di essere come sospesa in aria.
Mentre riprendevo conoscenza nel silenzio e nell’oscurità, mi sono vista seppellita sotto un edificio crollato. Ho iniziato a distinguere i flebili lamenti dei miei compagni di classe: “Madre, aiutami. Dio, aiutami.”
Poi, all’improvviso, ho sentito una mano che toccava la mia spalla e un uomo che diceva: “Non arrenderti! Continua a spingere! Sto cercando di liberarti. La vedi la luce che filtra da quel varco? Striscia verso di essa più veloce che puoi.”

El 6 de agosto de 1945, cuando la Segunda Guerra Mundial parecía acercarse a su fin, la bomba de uranio "Little Boy" fue lanzada sobre #Hiroshima (#Japón ), causando más de 100.000 muertes, además de destruir por completo la ciudad.
Esta bomba explotó al llegar a la altura de 590 metros, provocando una reacción atómica que liberó una energía de 13 kilotones (equivalente a 13.000 toneladas de TNT) y generó un calor de aproximadamente 1 millón de grados centígrados.
Esto hizo "arder el aire". El 30% de la población de esta ciudad murió en el acto. Tan solo unos días después, de nuevo, el presidente estadounidense Truman, lanzaría un nuevo ataque sobre #Nagasaki

Ecco una testimonianza di un sopravvissuto: “Sentii un incredibile rumore e un'oscurita' totale copri' i miei occhi. Impossibilitato a vedere alcunche', non avevo idea di cosa fosse successo. (...) Ho sentito dire che ci fu una intensa luce blu in tutte le direzioni...
seguita da una potente esplosione.
Fummo scaraventati via senza poter opporre alcuna resistenza.
(...) Ero stato scaraventato a circa 10 metri rispetto a dove mi trovavo prima dell'esplosione ed ero caduto sul selciato. Era stata l'onda d'urto a gettarmi cosi' lontano...
