Hiroshima Vs. Detroit: Who Really Won That War?

Published by at 4:20 am under Editorial,Oddly Enough

Hiroshima Vs. Detroit

I am proud of America.  I am proud of the country that our forefathers built.  I am proud to be an American…sometimes.   You see we all know that Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed in August 1945 after being hit by the first atomic bombs.  However we know little about the progress made by the people of that land during the past 64 years.

More so, we don’t know much about our own progress.  So while America may have burgeoning cities it would appear that we still fall just a tad short of the progress of some other places.

So who really won the war?  Decide for yourself

    as an American expat I hear about this stuff all the time

    people seem to forget Pearl Harbor

    war should be won at any cost – war is war

    We won the war, but they’ve won the peace. Take their factories; the average age of a machine in a Japanese factory is 6 years. The average age of a machine in an American factory is 24 years and up. I used to work in a tank factory building M113′s, P-7′s, and Bradley’s. One block-punch machine I worked on was so retrofitted it looked like steampunk. The thing had been made in 1926. A spotwelder I used had a WD number on the ID tag. That’s War Department—a designation used BEFORE World War Two!

    As an American-born who has spent a significant amount of time in Hiroshima, Japan I can say, without any doubt, that I would gladly live there over any American city, any day.

    People are actually polite. Everything is so clean and lively. I can walk down the street at night and still feel safe. And Japan’s public transportation system is among the best in the world, if not the best. And yes, I have had the honor of meeting an A-bomb survivor.

    I’d recommend Hiroshima a must visit for anyone who visits Japan, no question about it.

    I agree with the article, but the presented pictures are not of Hiroshima, but of Yokohama.
    In fact one of the buildings is in Minatomirai and is called YOKOHAMA Landmark tower, Japan`s tallest building.

    ok im from detroit and yes the city is bad but its not really how it is perceived in the rest of the country. the areas show here arent dangerous ghettos or anything their just completely abandoned. There arent any people. There are nice areas but theres no reason to fix up the other parts of the city because its shrinking so fast. Traffic is better in Detroit than any other major american city i have seen because the infrastructure is built for a much larger city.

    eeeey, the first photo under the “Here is Detroit Present Day after Zero Bombs” it isn’t Detroit after bombs! this is Warsaw, Poland! i know this place, because i live in this city!

    this is building on Mokotowska 73

    The point here is that 50 years of “progressive” politics is far more destructive than a split-second 15 kiloton explosion. If you know what to do, you can rebuild in a few years from the devastation of a nuclear blast. However, there’s nothing to build WITH when you are saddled with the chaos and tyranny of progressive politics. Detroit is a growing wasteland, and it time it will not be a fit place for anyone to live. It will inevitably become a deserted ruins.
