John Pilger reveals more warmongering US propaganda he believes will lead to nuclear bombing of China

‘I write this as a warning to the world,’ reported Burchett in the London Daily Express of 5 September 1945. Sitting in the rubble with his Baby Hermes typewriter, he described hospital wards filled with people with no visible injuries who were dying from what he called ‘an atomic plague’.

For this, his press accreditation was withdrawn, he was pilloried and smeared. His witness to the truth was never forgiven.

The atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was an act of premeditated mass murder that unleashed a weapon of intrinsic criminality. It was justified by lies that form the bedrock of America's war propaganda in the 21st Century, casting a new enemy and target — China.

The National Archives in Washington contains documented Japanese peace overtures as early as 1943. None was pursued. A cable sent on 5 May 1945 by the German ambassador in Tokyo and intercepted by the U.S. made clear the Japanese were desperate to sue for peace, including ‘capitulation even if the terms were hard’. Nothing was done.

The U.S. Secretary of War, Henry Stimson, told President Harry Truman he was fearful that the U.S. Air Force would have Japan so “bombed out” that the new weapon would not be able “to show its strength”. Stimson later admitted that “no effort was made, and none was seriously considered, to achieve surrender merely in order not to have to use the bomb”.
