As horrific as scenes from movies can appear, real life can be much more terrible. I have heard people talking about the war in the Middle East and saying that their solution is to, " pull out and nuk the whole place." The United States is still the only nation to use these terrible weapons in war. I can't say if it was right or wrong in 1945 to use atomic weapons to force an end to WWII; but I can say that it is wrong to ever think about using them again.
The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum has a collection of drawings and paintings done by survivors of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. HBO this month is airing a documentary titled White Light, Black Rain which also features some of this art.
