Today 70 years ago, the first atomic bomb had been dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima killing 70 or 80k humans at once. Three days later, Nagasaki was annihilated by another atomic bomb. Both bombs were commissioned by the US American government under President Harry S. Truman. They were meant to end WWII.
What followed, until 1998, was an incredible overkill testing of nuclear bombs by the USA, the UdSSR, China, UK, France, India, Pakistan, Israel and, lately, North Korea. It is necessary to watch the video with some patience in the first couple of minutes to experience afterwards the real horror of kind of music of the 20th century.
Update 3 March 2015.
While the Guardian newspaper reports today that his former boss in an unnamed Kuwaiti IT company has praised Mohammed Emwazi’s skills and manners (“He was the best employee we ever had, … He was very good with people. Calm and decent. He came to our door and gave us his CV… How could someone as calm and quiet as him become like the man who we saw on the news? It’s just not logical that he could be this guy.”), Kuwaits English-language tabloid Arab Times still tries to conceal that the Kuwaiti born was living, at least for some time, in Kuwait. His parents (“Bedoun, stateless Kuwaitis, having joined Iraqis in Saddam’s onslaught on Kuwait in 1990“) are apparently surveyed and harrassed by authorities.
Emwazi, then 21 years of age, left Kuwait in 2010 for London after a 3-month “stellar probationary period” at the above IT company.
