Why Are You Supporting America When They Used Atomic Bombs To Destroy Your Cities of Hiroshima & Nagasaki In 1945, Angry North Korea Slams And Questions Japan
North Korea has condemned Japan for working on behalf of the U.S., which became the first and so far only nation to use nuclear weapons in combat when it destroyed two Japanese cities in August 1945.
Both North Korea and Japan have been the target of bombing campaigns launched by the U.S. military in the past, but the latter has been a staunch U.S. ally since the end of World War II. The conflict led to the division of the Korean Peninsula, which the Japanese empire had previously occupied, and the ultimate creation of rival powers North Korea and South Korea.
Now, nearly three-quarters of a century after U.S. atomic bombs fell on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, killing hundreds of thousands, North Korea’s state-run media has accused Tokyo of selling out by backing Washington in its quest to disarm North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic weapons arsenal.
“The Japanese reactionaries are making no scruple of joining in the U.S. which dropped A-bombs over Japan and did a great deal of harm to it in the past, and working hard to realize their long-ambition for turning it into a military giant and for overseas militarist aggression by the method of taking advantage of the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK and strategy to dominate Asia,” wrote the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). It was referring to North Korea’s official diplomatic title: the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
“But this is no more than action of tiger moths perishing in the flames,” it added.
