We are commemorating the 76th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This article by Edward Curtin was first published by Global Research in 2018.
“Ahab is forever Ahab, man. This whole act’s immutably decreed. ‘Twas rehearsed by thee and me billion years before this ocean rolled. Fool! I am the Fates’ lieutenant; I act under orders.” – Herman Melville, Moby Dick
“The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid ‘dens of crime’ that Dickens loved to paint…But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed, and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voice.” – C. S. Lewis, author’s preface, 1962, The Screwtape Letters
American history can only accurately be described as the story of demonic possession, however you choose to understand that phrase. Maybe radical “evil” will suffice. But right from the start the American colonizers were involved in massive killing because they considered themselves divinely blessed and guided, a chosen people whose mission would come to be called “manifest destiny.”
Nothing stood in the way of this divine calling, which involved the need to enslave and kill millions and millions of innocent people that continues down to today. “Others” have always been expendable since they have stood in the way of the imperial march ordained by the American god. This includes all the wars waged based on lies and false flag operations. It is not a secret, although most Americans, if they are aware of it, prefer to see it as a series of aberrations carried out by “bad apples.” Or something from the past.
Our best writers and prophets have told us the truth: Thoreau, Twain, William James, MLK, Fr. Daniel Berrigan, et al.: we are a nation of killers of the innocent. We are conscienceless. We are brutal. We are in the grip of evil forces.
The English writer D. H. Lawrence said it perfectly in 1923,
“The American soul is hard, isolate, stoic and a killer. It has never yet melted.”D. H. Lawrence
It still hasn’t.
When on August 6 and 9, 1945 the United States killed 200-300 thousand innocent Japanese civilians with atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, they did so intentionally. It was an act of sinister state terrorism, unprecedented by the nature of the weapons but not by the slaughter.
The American terror bombings of Japanese cities that preceded the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki – led by the infamous Major General Curtis LeMay (image on the right)– were also intentionally aimed at Japanese civilians and killed hundreds of thousands of them.
Is there an American artist’s painting of Tokyo destroyed by the firebombing to go next to Picasso’s Guernica, where estimates of the dead range between 800 and 1,600? In Tokyo alone more than 100, 000 Japanese civilians were burnt to death by cluster bombs of napalm. All this killing was intentional. I repeat: Intentional. Is that not radical evil? Demonic? Only five Japanese cities were spared such bombing.
The atomic bombings were an intentional holocaust, not to end the war, as the historical record amply demonstrates, but to send a message to the Soviet Union that we could do to them what we did to the residents of Japan.
President Truman made certain that the Japanese willingness to surrender in May 1945 was made unacceptable because he and his Secretary-of-State James Byrnes wanted to use the atomic bombs – “as quickly as possible to ‘show results’” in Byrnes’ words – to send a message to the Soviet Union.
So “the Good War” was ended in the Pacific with the “good guys” killing hundreds of thousand Japanese civilians to make a point to the “bad guys,” who have been demonized ever since. Russia phobia is nothing new.
Satan always wears the other’s face.
Many Baby Boomers like to say they grew up with the bomb. They are lucky. They grew up. They got be scared. They got to hide under their desks and wax nostalgic about it. Do you remember dog tags? Those 1950s and 1960s? The scary movies?

The children of Hiroshima and Nagasaki who died under our bombs on August 6 and 9, 1945 didn’t get to grow up. They couldn’t hide. They just went under. To be accurate: we put them under. Or they were left to smolder for decades in pain and then die. But that it was necessary to save American lives is the lie. It’s always about American lives, as if the owners of the country actually cared about them. But to tender hearts and innocent minds, it’s a magic incantation. Poor us!
Fat Man, Little Boy – how the words echo down the years to the now fat Americans who grew up in the 1950s and who think like little boys and girls about their country’s demonic nature. Innocence – it is wonderful! We are different now.
“We are great because we are good,” that’s what Hillary Clinton told us.
The Libyans can attest to that. We are exceptional, special. The next election will prove we can defeat Mr. Pumpkin Head and restore America to its “core values.”
Perhaps you think I am cynical. But understanding true evil is not child’s play. It seems beyond the grasp of most Americans who need their illusions. Evil is real. There is simply no way to understand the savage nature of American history without seeing its demonic nature. How else can we redeem ourselves at this late date, possessed as we are by delusions of our own God-blessed goodness?
But average Americans play at innocence. They excite themselves at the thought that with the next election the nation will be “restored” to the right course. Of course there never was a right course, unless might makes right, which has always been the way of America’s rulers. Today Trump is viewed by so many as an aberration. He is far from it. He’s straight out of a Twain short story. He’s Vaudeville. He’s Melville’s confidence man. He’s us.
Did it ever occur to those who are fixated on him that if those who own and run the country wanted him gone, he’d be gone in an instant?
He can tweet and tweet idiotically, endlessly send out messages that he will contradict the next day, but as long as he protects the super-rich, accepts Israel’s control of him, and allows the CIA-military-industrial complex to do its world-wide killing and looting of the treasury, he will be allowed to entertain and excite the public – to get them worked up in a lather in pseudo-debates. And to make this more entertaining, he will be opposed by the “sane” Democratic opposition, whose intentions are as benign as an assassin’s smile.
Look back as far as you can to past U.S. presidents, the figureheads who “act under orders” (whose orders?), as did Ahab in his lust to kill the “evil” great white whale, and what do you see? You see servile killers in the grip of a sinister power. You see hyenas with polished faces. You see pasteboard masks.
On the one occasion when one of these presidents dared to follow his conscience and rejected the devil’s pact that is the presidency’s killer-in-chief role, he – JFK – had his brains blown out in public view. An evil empire thrives on shedding blood, and it enforces its will through demonic messages. Resist and there will be blood on the streets, blood on the tracks, blood in your face.
Despite this, President Kennedy’s witness, his turn from cold warrior to an apostle of peace, remains to inspire a ray of hope in these dark days. As recounted by James Douglass in his masterful JFK and the Unspeakable, Kennedy agreed to a meeting in May 1962 with a group of Quakers who had been demonstrating outside the While House for total disarmament. They urged him to move in that direction.
Kennedy was sympathetic to their position. He said he wished it were easy to do so from the top down, but that he was being pressured by the Pentagon and others to never do that, although he had given a speech urging “a peace race” together with the Soviet Union. He told the Quakers it would have to come from below. According to the Quakers, JFK listened intently to their points, and before they left said with a smile,
“You believe in redemption don’t you?”
Soon Kennedy was shaken to his core by the Cuban missile crisis when the world teetered on the brink of extinction and his insane military and “intelligence” advisers urged him to wage a nuclear war. Not long after, he took a sharp top-down turn toward peace despite their fierce opposition, a turn so dramatic over the next year that it led to his martyrdom. And he knew it would. He knew it would.
So hope is not all lost. There are great souls like JFK to inspire us. Their examples flash here and there. But to even begin to hope to change the future, a confrontation with our demonic past (and present) is first necessary, a descent into the dark truth that is terrifying in its implications. False innocence must be abandoned. Carl Jung, in “On the Psychology of the Unconscious,” addressed this with the words:
It is a frightening thought that man also has a shadow side to him, consisting not just of little weaknesses – and foibles, but of a positively demonic dynamism. The individual seldom knows anything of this; to him, as an individual, it is incredible that he should ever in any circumstances go beyond himself. But let these harmless creatures form a mass, and there emerges a raging monster; and each individual is only one tiny cell in the monster’s body, so that for better or worse he must accompany it on its bloody rampages and even assist it to the utmost. Having a dark suspicion of these grim possibilities, man turns a blind eye to the shadow-side of human nature. Blindly he strives against the salutary dogma of original sin, which is yet so prodigiously true. Yes, he even hesitates to admit the conflict of which he is so painfully aware.
How can one describe men who would intentionally slaughter so many innocent people? American history is rife with such examples up to the present day. Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, etc. – the list is very long.
Savage wars carried out by men and women who own and run the country, and who try to buy the souls of regular people to join them in their pact with the devil, to acquiesce to their ongoing wicked deeds. Such monstrous evil was never more evident than on August 6 and 9, 1945.
Unless we enter into deep contemplation of the evil that was released into the world with those bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we are lost in a living hell without escape. And we will pay. Nemesis always demands retribution.
We have gradually been accepting rule by those for whom the killing of innocents is child’s play, and we have been masquerading as innocent and good children for whom the truth is too much to bear. “Indeed, the safest road to Hell is the gradual one,” Screwtape the devil tells his nephew, Wormwood, a devil in training, “the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.” That’s the road we’ve been traveling.
The projection of evil onto others works only so long. We must reclaim our shadows and withdraw our projections. Only the fate of the world depends on it.

6 thoughts on “Satanic Nature of the Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki”
Excellent article, well done.
Perhaps you have hesitated to expand – allow me to go further.
As with all Cabal Plans, there was a plethora of Hegelian Syntheses in dropping the 2 atom bombs. It is worth bearing in mind that the two cities had been left (deliberately) relatively un-bombed previously, where other cities were devastated. (As an aside, they also had a higher proportion of Christian Japanese, and we know how the Canaanites hate Christians).
The Japanese had been seeking some form of surrender for months, as you note, all ignored by the US. Their intent was not really to show off to the Soviets (Stalin was after all also a 33rd degree Mason, like Churchill and FDR), but instead was intended to set up the post-war world of Cold War political angst.
How do you keep the World afraid…? You expose the power of atomic weaponry – they have to be demonstrated, make sure both sides have it (they gave it to the Soviets via especially arranged spies), and keep the Masses in perpetual fright for a couple of generations…. military industrial complex satisfied… Satanic UN created… human/child traffic favouring Chaos created… Job done.
In the meantime the Soviet/CCP block – created by the western Cabal Banksters in the first place, stepped forward to provide the opposition in the far east, to keep Armies busy for the next 30 years, until Al Qaeda (literal Arabic translation – the toilet) is created by the CIA to become the next Hegelian antithesis.
It’s all Satanic, and humanity hating, but you have to note that in all these conflicts, the Masonic-Jesuit-Satanic-banksters have controlled both sides of every conflict – stretching back to the Babylonian days of Baal worship.
Thankfully God wins in the end. In fact he’s already won, most just don’t know it yet.
THIS ARTICLE FORGOT TO MENTION THAT JAPAN WAS AN AGGRESSOR IN WWI AND WAS ALLIES WITH HITLER’S GERMANY.. SINCE WHEN IT BECAME INNOCENT?
Attack on Pearl Harbor: A necessary measure or a war crime?
Franklin D. Roosevelt had made secret commitments to Winston Churchill and the English government to become involved in the war against Germany in Europe and he knew that the only way he could fulfill his secret commitments to Churchill to get the US into the war, without openly dishonoring his pledges to the American people to keep the US out, was by provoking Germany to attack.
In October, 1940, Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox sent Admiral J.O. Richardson, Commander-in-Chief of the American fleet in the Pacific. Knox advised him that the President wanted him to establish a patrol of the Pacific, a wall of American naval vessels stretched across the western Pacific in such a way as to make it impossible for Japan to reach any of her essential sources of supply; a naval blockade of Japan to prevent by force her use of any part of the Pacific Ocean, and therefore, any part of the world. Richardson protested vigorously. He said that would be an act of war, and besides, we would lose our navy.
Is it possible that Roosevelt did not choose to use his supreme power as a president because he knew that this was indeed an act of war and that he did not want to be identified as the originator of the plan. If Richardson had agreed to Knox’s proposal, and Japan had attacked an American naval vessel, Roosevelt could have directly blamed the admiral for allowing the vessel to get into the position of being fired upon by the Japanese Imperial Navy in the first place. Roosevelt wanted a scapegoat and Richardson refused. In March 1941, President Roosevelt was still hoping for an incident involving the United States and Germany, according to Harold Ickes, Roosevelt’s Secretary of the Interior.
The Rt Hon. Oliver Lyttleton, a member of Churchill’s war cabinet, declared in an address to the American Chamber of Commerce in London on June 24, 1944: “America provoked to such an extent that the Japanese Imperial Navy were forced to attack Pearl Harbor. It is a travesty of history to say that America was forced into the war.”
So Roosevelt asked for, and received, a Declaration of War against Japan after Pearl Harbor. Germany followed on December 11th with a formal Declaration of War against the United States. This action was in accordance with the terms of the Tripartite Treaty signed earlier by the Axis powers.
Pearl Harbor never would have happened if the US had not froze all their assets and enacted an oil embargo. Japan is an island country and depends on imports of raw materials to survive. The war was completely avoidable. They would have likely to have been an ally against Hitler or just remained neutral. The war with Japan was avoidable.
Postwar Japan became an American colony, they have never signed a peace treaty with Russia. In reality Japanese are the victims of the worst kind of colonialism, the colonialism of the mind and the intellect, where they are made to be ashamed of their history. They are just a lackey for the people who own America, they also control South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and the rest of the world.
The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki: A necessary measure or a racist war crime?
Churchill and Roosevelt had meeting in 1944 and decided that they wouldn’t drop the bombs on Germany.
In April of 1945, before Germany surrendered, the director of the Manhattan project General Leslie Groves wrote a memo to the American Secretary of War saying the target is and always was expected to be Japan.
They were not going to drop it on Germany since America has the most German immigrants in the world, and they’re part of the American elite (Bush, Eisenhower, Warburg, Von Braun) and most of America’s scientists during the war were German Jews. Nazi Germany was funded and built by Rothschild banking cartel who funded German corporations like IG Farben, Siemens, Volkswagen, etc. Otherwise there would not have been German war machine.
The bomb was intentionally dropped to show off their strength in the postwar era against the Soviet Union and China’s CPC. They still dare to call other people terrorists and forget their own past. Well if their past was not enough they are still doing it at present in the name of eradicating terrorism. They still do testing of the atomic bomb on the habitated island of Bikini Atoll even after Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Cabal even sabotaged the Fukushima nuclear power plant in 2011 and detonated nuclear tsunami-bombs causing earthquake and tsunami. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were the biggest terrorist attacks on any country in mankind history…
Ancient Secret Society in Asia
The Asian Secret Society is called the “The Green and the Red Societies”
In China this association is very large and famous, and one of the most ancient in Asia, even today they have about 6 million members and 100,000 professional assassins. This is a fantastic number considering this is an ultra secret society.
“It can be found in the history books. When the Manchus invaded China in 1644 the Ming army became an underground society aimed at overthrowing the Qing (Manchu) and restoring the Ming. They supported the Boxer Rebellion but were put down by imperialist powers. Later, with the help of overseas Chinese and the ancient Japanese imperial family, the society managed to overthrow the last Manchu Emperor and install Sun Yat Sen in his place.”
“Sun Yat Sen is called the “Father of the Nation” in the Republic of China, and the “Forerunner of the Revolution” in the People’s Republic of China for his instrumental role in the overthrow of the Qing dynasty during the Xinhai Revolution. Chiang Kai-shek, the founder of the Republic of China (Taiwan) has also been mentioned comes from this association.”
“The Chinese Communists were nearly wiped out by Asian secret societies – notably the Red and the Green – before World War II ended. They last appear in the history books as the Green Gang and the Red Gang that fiercely fought the Communists in Shanghai in the 1940’s. They were defeated by the Communists in 1949 and once again became an underground organization.”
“Since 1949 they have steadily increased their influence throughout China and the rest of the world. They have members at the very highest levels of the Chinese government but they are by nature anti-establishment, and are not an official Chinese government organization…”
“The society has deep roots in Japan because of the link between Yakuza group and the ancient Japanese imperial family. The Japanese imperial family are descended from 6th century Yayoi (proto-Japanese) invaders. The original invaders had trouble putting down the warrior Jōmon peoples so they brought over a tough, warlike minority people from the Asian mainland. These are the ancestors of the Yakuza. They have historically been used for security work and for jobs like collecting taxes. When the Japanese decided to help overthrow the last Chinese dynasty (the Qing dynasty), they used the Yakuza as a go-between with the Chinese secret society, many of whose members were gangsters. To this day many of the senior leaders of this group are actually Japanese, not Chinese. Many proeminent Chinese intellectuals and political figures, led by the Green and the Red Society, have studied in Japan, among them Sun Yat-sen, Zhou Zuoren, Lu Xun, Zhou Enlai and Chiang Kai-shek.
“It must be made very clear though that it is not a crime gang. Although many members are Triad and Yakuza members, over 2/3 thirds of the members are intellectuals such as university professors, researchers, scientists, businessman, military and government bureaucrats. Each member earns their own living and membership in the society is like belonging to an emergency fire brigade. Their book of rules reads like a book of ethics filled with instructions to do things like help the weak, fight injustice, help your comrades etc.”
“Think about it, the Illuminati and their top servants have a total membership of about 10,000 whereas the Chinese group has over 6 million members. That is 600 to one odds. Furthermore, the 6 million have the names and addresses of the 10,000 while the 10,000 do not know who or where the 6 million are.”
However, the Eastern secret societies, just like their Western counterparts, are divided into several competing groups.
The biggest secret society in Asia is probably the Hongmen group, with 55 million members, mostly located in mainland China and in Chinese communities around the world. President Xi Jinping is a member of this group. It can be seen as a sort of combination between a chamber of commerce and a mafiosi group. The Hongmen are closely linked to, but not the same as, the Chinese Communist Party. Their hierarchy is based on meritocracy and not bloodlines. There is a Taiwan-based splinter group as well, but they are losing influence and power due to poor leadership and the betrayal of their March 19th secret pledge.
The second Asian group is the Dragon family. This is a grouping of ancient royal bloodlines with their networks of retainers and their stashes of historical gold. They are strongest in Northeast Asia and Southeast Asia. North Korea is one of their main strongholds, since that country is the real heir to the Manchu Dynasty which ruled China during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1912). They are also strong in Northern China, South Korea and Mongolia. They are the heirs of the Mongol warriors, and any country whose name ends in “-stan,” has a strong Genghis Khan’s heritage. The Dragon family has close links to European royal families and also believes in a world government, but they think hereditary bloodlines and constitutional monarchies are needed to provide such a government with stability and continuity.
Another Asian grouping that used to be very powerful was the Black Dragon Society (BDS). They were behind the World War 2 Imperial Japanese push for a greater East-Asian Co-prosperity sphere. Before World War II, the Asians were more or less united under the Black Dragon Society. This group believed the Westerners were going to win World War II and then carry out their plan to wipe out non-European races. They were the group behind the greater East Asian co-prosperity sphere. In spite of the fact that the Japanese Empire and Black Dragons were superficially allied with the Nazis during World War II, they were secretly preparing for what they saw as an inevitable East/West, North/South showdown. Now, the Black Dragon society is a shadow of its former self. In its place is an alliance of the Red Dragon, Blue Dragon, Green Dragon and White Dragon Societies.
The BDS was very successful in recruiting non-European people around the world in their bid to end Western neo-colonial rule. There are several organizations that claim to be heirs of the Black Dragon Society, but none of them have any real power. There are other groups and subdivisions such as the Japanese Shinto-connected Three Legged Crow, but they are not major global players in the current battle for the planet Earth and will align themselves with whomever emerges victorious.
The other big Eastern secret society is the Blue Dragon, and they are the heirs of the Assassins. They are strong in Persia (Iran) and the Muslim world, especially the Muslims of India. They believe a great leader called the Mahdi will emerge and rid the world of evil before the End Times. This group is working towards the common goal of liberating the Muslim world, especially the Middle East, of neo-colonialist rulers.
The Pacific War: Eastern empire vs white supremacy
Before World War II, the Asians were more or less united under the Black Dragon Society. This group believed the Westerners were going to win World War II and then carry out their plan to wipe out non-European races. They were the group behind the greater East Asian co-prosperity sphere.
In spite of the fact that the Japanese Empire and Black Dragons were superficially allied with the Nazis during World War II, they were secretly preparing for what they saw as an inevitable East/West, North/South showdown. Now, the Black Dragon society is a shadow of its former self. In its place is an alliance of the Red Dragon, Blue Dragon, Green Dragon and White Dragon Societies.
One giant error here. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were firebombed with napalm, just like 60+ other Japanese cities. Nuclear bombs are a deep state hoax. That is a fact that is now coming to light, for anyone with an open mind and an internet connection.
