US President Barack Obama to visit Hiroshima and will offer no apology, but what if?

It really does make people wonder what exactly is going on inside Japan deep within the bowels of its power elite, all the way from Germany’s Angela Merkel offering Japan the opportunity to join NATO, to Japan introducing negative interest rates to President Obama making a visit to Hiroshima? We’ve already ascertained that nuclear weapons and the nuclear power industry just could be the biggest scam of the 20th century and the power elite who run the world are looking for an exit strategy from the nuclear scam.

Are the Anglo-Americans especially the British fearful of Japan breaking completely with the Anglo-Americans and going their own way economically and diplomatically with Russia and China which would actually be a far more healthy relationship for Japan considering Japan is nothing more than a vassal state of the US. Here’s the ultimate irony: Suppose nuclear bombs weren’t dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Wouldn’t that make President Obama not offering an apology a correct decision? This will be the first time in 70 years an American president has visited Hiroshima or Nagasaki since the alleged nuclear bombs were dropped on these two cities. Bet nobody would suspect this would they?

Obama won’t apologize for Hiroshima during trip to Japan

President Obama may visit Hiroshima when he travels to Japan late this month for a summit of key industrialized nations, but he will not apologize for the World War II decision to destroy that city with an atomic bomb, the White House said Monday.

Asked by Yahoo News whether Obama believes Japan deserves a formal apology for the August 6, 1945, bombing, White House press secretary Josh Earnest replied: “No, he does not.”

The question arose because John Kerry recently became the first U.S. secretary of state to visit Hiroshima’s Peace Memorial Park. Declaring the experience “gut-wrenching,” Kerry said he would urge Obama to make the trip.

“It tugs at all of your sensibilities as a human being. It reminds everybody of the extraordinary complexity of choices in war and of what war does to people, to communities, to countries, to the world,” Kerry said after his April 11 visit.

Obama has said, since at least November 2009, that he would like to visit Hiroshima, and also Nagasaki, the target of the second American nuclear bomb dropped in wartime.

“I certainly would be honored, it would be meaningful for me to visit those two cities in the future,” he said at a press conference with Japan’s then prime minister, Yukio Hatoyama.

No word on whether Obama will visit Obama, a small city on Japan’s west coast.
