It’s official. Barack Obama will visit Hiroshima later this month according to Politico. He will be the first sitting president to visit Hiroshima.
His purpose is to pontificate on a nuke-free world with the assumption being that the US was to blame for Hiroshima and Nagasaki, ignoring the fact that the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor and got us into the war, and it was the Japanese emperor who refused to end the war. Another half-million American soldiers would have died if we didn’t drop those bombs.
This wil cap his last visit to a G-7 summit. In Hiroshima, he will “make an historic visit to Hiroshima with Prime Minister Abe to highlight his continued commitment to pursuing the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons.”
In May, famed White House liar Ben Rhodes, said, “So, on May 27, the President will visit the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, a site at the center of the city dedicated tot he victims of the atomic bombing, where he will share his reflections on the significance of the site and the events that occurred there.”
It’s an apology tour though the Prime Minister said he didn’t want an apology because it might stir up his anti-American people.
Obama will be more subtle but not much.
This is an absolute disgrace to our soldiers who fought in World War II and to all those who lost loved ones.
Kerry made a quasi-apology when he visited last month. He said, “It is a stunning display. It is a gut-wrenching display. It tugs at all of your sensibilities as a human being. It reminds everybody of the extraordinary complexity of choices in war and of what war does to people to communities, to countries, to the world.”
In December, 2011, Barack Obama visited Pearl Harbor for the 70th anniversary. He laid a wreath and made no statement whatsoever. Previously, he had issued a humdrum statement which read, “we salute the veterans and survivors of Pearl Harbor who inspire us still. Despite overwhelming odds, they fought back heroically, inspiring our nation and putting us on the path to victory.”
U.S. Secretary of State and traitor John Kerry laid a wreath at the USS Arizona memorial site in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on August 13, 2014 after a briefing. We couldn’t find any statement. He did issue a issue a statement a year later which did not include the words, “stunning”, “gut-wrenching”, or “choices of war”. Read it here.
