But, that's why the usual set of posts about Hiroshima and Nagasaki from this once-upon-a-time nuclear engineer haven't been appearing on this website. I've been busy with those sorts of posts on the Colorado Coalition website.
In Japan, a group of university and secondary school students and teachers have created a pair of Google Earth sites. These sites overlay the archive images and maps, as well as videos from survivors, over the Google Earth 3d maps of the cities of Nagasaki and Hiroshima.
And Dr. Gar Alperovitz has an excellent piece up on Counterpunch.org about the decision to nuke Hiroshima that does an excellent job of puncturing the myths with which this event is usually presented to Americans in denial of the fact that our nation committed two of the greatest atrocities in human history by killing something like 200,000 people, almost all of them civilians.
Links to all of this can be found on the Colorado Coalition's website.
