The Music of the 20th Century

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.
