“Symbolizing how far the United States and Japan have come in building a deep and abiding alliance based on mutual interests, shared values and an enduring spirit of friendship between our people,”according to The White House official statement, The Hill reports that Nobel-Peace-Prize-winning President Obama will become the first sitting U.S. president to visit Hiroshima, Japan, later this month. Is this merely continuing Obama’s apology tour?
Somewhat ironically, The Hill reports, the president will visit the site of the world’s first atomic bombing as he meets with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe “to highlight his continued commitment to pursuing the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons,” the White House said.
Obama’s national security advisor, Ben Rhodes, penned the pre-visit propaganda, via Medium.com,explaining the narrative that we should all adopt about why Obama will visit the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, a site dedicated to the thousands of who died in the city during World War II…“He will not revisit the decision to use the atomic bomb at the end of World War II,” Rhodes writes, “instead, he will offer a forward-looking vision focused on our shared future.”
“In making this visit, the president will shine a spotlight on the tremendous and devastating human toll of war,” he wrote.
“To be sure, the United States will be eternally proud of our civilian leaders and the men and women of our armed services who served in World War II for their sacrifice at a time of maximum peril to our country and our world,” Rhodes added.
