Truman's "Crime Against God and Man" Documented

"Every act of war directed to the indiscriminate destruction of whole cities or vast areas with their inhabitants is a crime against God and man, which merits firm and unequivocal condemnation," reads the Catechism of the Catholic Church's Paragraph 2314, which comes to mind with this news today — Nuclear disaster as seen by the Russians: Rare footage filmed by Soviet researchers shows the utter devastation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki shortly after US atomic bombs flattened the cities in 1945.

Of course, this atrocity came at a more civilized time when people, even Americans after four years of war, still might have recoiled against an "act of war directed to the indiscriminate destruction of whole cities or vast areas with their inhabitants," so war criminal and 33° Freemason Harry S. Truman famously lied, "The world will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, a military base. That was because we wished in this first attack to avoid, insofar as possible, the killing of civilians."

Here's a handy compendium of my own making showing that right-minded contemporaries still had their moral compasses intact — Old Rightist Voices Against Atomic Mass Murder.
