Quote Japan

Interesting, odd, outrageous or informative quotes about Japan

Nagasaki- quotes about the bomb etc.

“Jealous of the fact that ‘his war’ had been won by two bombs prepared without his knowledge and dropped without his command, (General) MacArthur determined to do his best to erase from history- or at least blur as well as censorship could- the important human lessons of radiation’s effect on civil populations” George Weller, the first Western journalist into Nagasaki after the bomb

“What was the reason (for banning journalists from the site of the nuclear bomb blasts)? To keep the victory of two nuclear weapons from eclipsing a general? To prevent it being said that the Pacific War was finally won in the Manhattan Project, not in Manila?” George Weller, the first Western journalist into Nagasaki after the bomb
