The Manhattan Project

Shuaibkazi
By Shuaibkazi

The United States, with assistance from the United Kingdom and Canada, designed and built the first atomic bombs under what was called the Manhattan Project.

The Target Committee at Los Alamos on May 10–11, 1945, recommended Kyoto, Hiroshima, Yokohama, and the arsenal at Kokura as possible targets. The committee rejected the use of the weapon against a strictly military objective because of the chance of missing a small target not surrounded by a larger urban area. The psychological effects on Japan were of great importance to the committee members. They also agreed that the initial use of the weapon should be sufficiently spectacular for its importance to be internationally recognized. The committee felt Kyoto, as an intellectual center of Japan, had a population "better able to appreciate the significance of the weapon." Hiroshima was chosen because of its large size, its being "an important army depot" and the potential that the bomb would cause greater destruction because the city was surrounded by hills which would have a "focusing effect.

 

(Okay so i was reading about the World war and i came across this article - just a thought - Probably Terrorists plan in the same manner.  "A Spectacular Display & a Focusing Effect" - LOL!)

There was also Black Magic connected with this Project.

Jack Parson & Marjorie Cameron involved in sexual blackmagic work called "Babalon Working" with an intent to create an Anti-Christ. Another intresting person involved in this is L. Ron Hubbard the founder of Dianetics.

The baby (girl)conceived out if it was taken out of the womb and exposed to the radiation of this Manhattan Project........and she lived....but who she is was kept a secret. (maybe shielded low radiation).

Perfection does not exist. The question therefore, is: what level of imperfection are we willing to settle for?

Work, taking care of the family...the usual....oh the wife is pregnant with our second child, so we're looking forward to that.

 

Let me think....last movie would have been.....American Gangster....not bad but neither Denzel nor Crowe's best work.

 

How about you? what's new aon your end bro?

 

Stay safe.

which, given our rapid technological growth (accompanied by the destructive potential of our weapons) does NOT bode well for our species....lets hope we can break this cycle before its too late (and we do irreversible harm to ourselves or our planet).

 

Stay safe man.

Dont you think History seems to be repeating itself -

 

The only thing missing is a holistic view which we will probably have when a few decades have passed
