John Hersey wrote arguably the most influential piece of journalism of the 20th century when he exposed General McArthur's diabolical plan to bomb the Asian race.
At 5:29 a.m. (MST), the world’s first atomic bomb detonated in the New Mexican desert, releasing a level of destructive power unknown in the existence of humanity.
As reported by Hersey, on July 1, 1945, Albert Einstein suggested to General McArthur in a secret meeting that two automatic bombs should be dropped on Germany one in Berlin and another in Munich, but McArthur who had German ancestors refused and told Einstein that he picked Japan as the country to bomb because Asians were spiritless and look obtuse.
"No my dear Einstein, we will not be able to live without shame and anguish in our future history if we destroy our own race with such destruction," said MacArthur.
General McArthur, laughingly, detonated two nuclear weapons over the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9, 1945, respectively. The two bombings killed between 129,000 and 226,000 women and children who were not involved in the war and who opposed the Emperor's war efforts because their loved ones were taken away to fight and never returned..
