On top of the cold war we had 30 times over kill in the world
We where able to blow up the world 30 times.
A lot of countries in the world have nuclear weapons.
USA, Russia, England, France, India, Pakistan Israel are able to build one.
Other countries have store nuclear weapons build by others.
How do we think we are to tell others not making one if we have one.
How do you trust most USA, Russia or North Korea or Iran
The US start the war in Iraq for oil and use all his old fireworks that became useless in that country. How do you tell your child not to smoke if you use a pack a day?

A nice statement, Chris; I can see why you posted this one, and the other shot as a bonus. 61 years have passed since Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but have the leaders of the world learnt anything at all from past mistakes ?
Thanks for showing the ws version, as it gives us a nice impression of man's power to overcome disaster. Which, unfortunately, seems to be much less than man's power to create disaster >:-(

A very heavy duty photo! I think you caught a strong message with this very sad photo. I guess everyone should see this every day, ALL DAY, including Kim Jung II & those responsible who dropped it in the first place! Powerful image, dude!

Hi Chris. Interesting story here about this day of atomic radiation. Your photo shows well enough to see the effects and why it should be kept as a "big stick" but not have to be used again. TFS. Murray.
A real significant shot..of one of the History's bitter event. Hope the nuclear powers sees this shot of yours and think & think about all.
Thanks for sharing.
