Two comments submitted to "Prohibiting the use of nuclear weapons," neither published. GRRR!

{The A-bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, instantly killing x (the 'lucky' victims) and leading to the lingering death of y, altogether about ¼mio dead, is a study in complexity.

«Even in the event of a US mainland invasion, the highest projected casualty estimates for US forces were not "over a million" like Stimson and Truman later claimed, but between 30,000 and 50,000 [3]. More importantly, prior to August 1945 Truman and his advisers had considered it possible that the war would end without either the atomic bombs or a mainland invasion by US forces [4].»

A well-entrenched propaganda technique is to deploy a deception so shocking that it causes wide-spread stupefaction; see the exaggerated estimate [3], then ¼mio horribly dead Japanese appears comparatively 'worth it.' Further, there's the contradiction [4] - the 'official narrative' fails as multiply, deliberately deceptive.

The 'unconditional' demand was a psy-op to *delay* surrender until the bombs were ready; proof = Hirohito continued as emperor.

What the US did get was otherwise unobtainable data on U-235 and Pu-239 bombs on 'live' civilian targets, simultaneously 'sending a message' illustrating their brutality, especially to Russia. Similar messaging techniques occur along the Deir Yassin through Cast Lead time-line.}

{One of two possible reasons may explain assertions contradicting historical fact, namely ignorance or malice.

[Van Crevel]
«"We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets of our air force."»

[Golda Meir]
«At a point I interrupted her to say: “Prime Minister, I want to be sure I understand what you’re saying... You are saying that if ever Israel was in danger of being defeated on the battlefield, it would be prepared to take the region and even the whole world down with it?”
Without the shortest of pauses for reflection, ... Golda replied, “Yes, that’s exactly what I am saying.”»

One assumes that only enemies are to be targeted, making the entire world - which currently includes Israel, classified as 'enemy.'

In 'normal' criminal justice, the threat of assault is usually considered equivalent to the assault itself, and making threats as blackmail = coercion & intimidation, etc..

The "Samson Option" = greatest 'suicide-bomber' threat possible, ever.}
