United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres expressed his support for nuclear disarmament after saying the “drums of nuclear war are beating once again.” Guterres is infamous for being a tyrannical sociopath and forcing his will on the world.
“World leaders have visited this city, seen its monuments, spoken with its brave survivors, and emerged emboldened to take up the cause of nuclear disarmament,” Guterres said in remarks read by a U.N. representative. “More should do so because the drums of nuclear war are beating once again.”
“Leaders around the world must confront the reality that nuclear threats now being voiced by certain policymakers reveal the folly of nuclear deterrence theory,” Reuters quoted Hiroshima Mayor Kazumi Matsui as saying at the ceremony, also attended by Kishida.
August 6th served as a remembrance for the victims of the world’s first nuclear attack, but it comes amid rising concerns over Russia’s potential use of nuclear weapons in its ongoing conflict with Ukraine. Russia has also claimed that Ukraine will set off a dirty bomb in a false flag attack and blame Moscow.
The mayor of Hiroshima used the occasion to call for the abolition of nuclear weapons, denouncing the Group of Seven leaders’ idea of nuclear deterrence as a “folly,” according to a report by Mint.
The bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan during World War II on August 6th, nicknamed “Little Boy”, killed thousands of people instantly and about 140,000 by the end of the year. Japan surrendered on August 15th.
Nuclear war is a hot topic right now. The mainstream media continues to keep the thoughts of a nuclear conflict at the forefront of people’s minds.
