I have been to Hiroshima, Kokura and Guam. The reason why these places are now mentioned by me is because all of them have been designated as nuclear targets. During World War II, Hiroshima and Kokura were designated as primary targets by the United States. Hiroshima was bombed, but, due to very heavy cloud cover, Kokura was bypassed and spared devastation as that B-29 flew to its secondary target, which was Nagasaki. Guam, an island in the Western Pacific Ocean and a United States Territory is now being targeted by North Korea.

While I still believe that it was not necessary for the United States to deploy the Atomic Bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, most Americans should not continue with guilt because Japanesescientists had successfully detonated their own Atom Bomb in northeastern Korea just before August in 1945. If the Japanese had more time to improve on their Atom Bomb so that it could be deployed from the air on an airplane transported by a giant naval submarine offshore from the West Coast of the United States, Los Angeles would have been destroyed by an Atom Bomb.

How do I know this to be true? Because just a few months before the end of the Second World War, when merchandise was no longer being rationed, very early one morning, with my then 20/15 vision, I saw a Japanese aerial reconnaissance aircraft flying high above our home at a time sufficient daylight enabled photographs of strategic targets to be taken. Many decades later, information became available about nuclear weapon production in Japan during World War II that had never been released to the American public. Truth is always the first casualty in war.

If the complete truth were known now about the missile and nuclear programs in North Korea, U.S. intelligence agencies would have been able to provide far more information several months ago rather than now. But the same dilemma had existed also at Washington in the early 1960s when my analytic reports reached President John F. Kennedy that had revealed former Soviet military build-up in Cuba including early stages of construction for the Russian nuclear missile launch sites at Pinar del Rio province on the northwestern section of the island. When the U-2 aerial reconnaissance flights confirmed my findings in 1962 it became the Cuban Missile Crisis.
