(The photo on the left is of Hiroshima before the atomic bomb was dropped. The photo on the right shows the same city after the bomb. They are public domain photos taken by the U.S. military.)
President Obama has announced that he will soon visit the Japanese city of Hiroshima -- the first city ever attacked with a nuclear weapon. The visit is not an apology, but hopefully can enhance efforts to achieve a worldwide nuclear disarmament.
I thought the Japanese response to the impending visit was interesting. Below, I have posted an editorial from The Japan Times regarding the visit.
