Atomic bombs

           Here's one for history fans. Imagine if the Nazis had used an atomic bomb on half a million civilian families instead of the US. It would be reviled pretty much universally as the greatest war crime in history. I've never understood why it's not. In today's Guardian, John Pilger talks about the context of Hiroshima and the current enthusiasm to attack Iran before democracy can elect cooler heads in the US. 


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
