The criminals who dropped the atomic bomb remain free

On August 6th, 1945 the crew of the Enola Gay (above) dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima - a city filled with men, women and children civilians. The heat from the blast literally melted the flesh off people. More than seventy years later the radioactivity from the blast is still killing people.

An estimated 90,000–146,000 people died in Hiroshima and 39,000–80,000 died in Nagasaki. Not one member of the Enola Gay crew, or their superiors, or the politicians who ordered this abomination, was ever charged with terrorism or murder.
