I have some pressing things to attend to today and I'll have to forego my usual rant about Hiroshima and Nagasaki. However, you can read my previous posts on this:
2009: An almost unmentioned anniversary
2010: The most destructive use ever of weapons of mass destruction
2011: Another August 6th
2012: Yet another August 6th
2013: August 6, 1945
This year I'll let Noam Chomsky guide us through the Nuclear Weapons Era.
Spoiler alert: It's not pretty.
