Pearl Harbor and the road to Hiroshima

A bomb building Hiroshima

Pearl Harbor leads to nuclear war

In an all out war like World War II both sides tried to invent newer and more efficient ways to kill each other. Better planes, better tanks, and better bombs were all a product of this savage total war. The Manhattan Project employed some of the biggest geniuses in the world, all in an attempt to more efficiently and more easily kill more people, end the war more quickly, and win modern world’s most total war. For America, it was the surprise attack at Pear Harbor that enabled us to enter the war on the side of Britain, France, the Soviet Union, China, the Philippines and others to combat Germany and Japan.

    The Manhattan Project was at Los Alamos, virtually in our backyard. If you want to know about the Manhattan Project, 109 East Palace, is a great book to read.

    Apparently we had evidence that Japan was going to attack us for days before Pearl Harbor, but we just slept on it. Sketchy? I think so.

    And unfortunately we don’t learn from the past and repeat the same mistakes. Maybe if people traveled more and made more friends abroad, they wouldn’t want to blow them up so quickly, just a thought.
