They do not know why a country will fight with another country. They don’t even know why the entire world is split into two parts. Only a few people know on whose behalf their country is fighting. They only have the fear on what is happening around them.

The only one question raised in front of the world is – what the Big Country’s Heads have achieved by setting up meetings and conferences? Soviet Union chief Stalin, American President Harry S. Truman, Great Britain Prime Minister Winston Churchill (after Churchill Clement Attlee) assembled in Germany.

They all have assembled to bring World War II to an end. That year discussions went on from July 27 to August 2. The demand was to surrender Japan unconditionally. But before Japan agreed to surrender unconditionally, America which has already arranged all nuclear bombs to exploit for the World War II thought it would be wasted and will not get another chance to test them. They thought this would be the right time to test the nuclear bombs on Japan and attacked on Hiroshima city. Before getting out of that panic, Nagasaki town has hit with another nuclear bomb in the name of Fatman.
