if. party for moscow on a sunday morning thanks for being with us and making that news of the week the top story u.s. special forces killed osama bin ladin a promise a decade of trying to find the terror threat alert remains of an all time high as al qaeda promises to avenge its leaders death. as the u.s. and e.u. promise more sanctions against the syrian government of it doesn't stop its brutal crackdown on protesters and meantime fees are growing the current situation the
country might eventually lead to foreign intervention. and all in place for victory day celebrations in russia thousand troops march across moscow's red square in a final rehearsal for monday's bit of trickery if. the nuclear weapons were first used in one nine hundred forty five and change the world forever and a special report coming up now children of armageddon we look at whether a repeat of those events can be averted in the future if. you're. really. in. the nuclear age is sixty years old can can still thing as far as peace is concerned today the last atomic bomb psychiatrists will become. perhaps in less than twenty a century yes or so that at it's i would like to pass on my grandmother store
a cd to the younger generations focus night my dream is to not let it die. how great is the threat of nuclear war today. the nuclear weapons have become the currency of power. how do you explain that the five permanent members of the security council and they are the ones who have the nuclear weapons. and the five most powerful states in the world. united states russia britain france china. so india looks at just says that they're going to get into a nuclear club and pakistan israel is in there so this constitutes a volcano of nuclear weapons likely look at any time. we thought a threat had disappeared but we were around. during the cold war we were war each about the mutually assured destruction so-called not between
russia and states that fear is gone however we are not out of the danger zones at all there are still some trying to seven thousand nuclear warheads of which twelve thousand generate are operative active. question for their to rush him and that is that. there is a new restoration of democracy with nuclear weapons. well. their weapons are for use as far as i know were inspired piers. but it's the legacy of that weapon what does that hold in store for us. that sucker sounds like he was three years old when she was exposed to the bone when she was twelve she developed like a manic choke as she made one thousand paper cranes she would be killed.
not at all here i'm a soldier afghan deaths in the scream was speaking to seattle if you mean yes. i thought the cold war was over and the nuclear threat a thing of the past it's not a nightmare is alive and well with the help of the military strategies of the nuclear powers are the one hundred forty three thousand dead if he does she need to be slowly remembered as the triumph of the u.s. over japan. from hiroshima to the pacific islands where nuclear testing took place the decisions made by american strategists are taking a heavy toll on another generation mikey is a third generation he. her grandmother survived the radiation mikey doesn't want
the bomb to ever be used again. but i also discovered how alone much ignorance because even here people don't care enough about this old weapon other than to be the highlight of the newseum. day my lawyer talking to my friends about my activism see they don't care about such serious matters taken lightly. only the people who then understand what happens under the mushroom cloud today it's not all it is very difficult in these peaceful time to make young people understand how tragic it was that he is the youngest died in the heat oshima peace memorial museum but she goes further than providing information her goal is to provoke fear and dread it all the children has never experienced an atomic bombing that's why i use simple language while trying to make an impact on a family it's amazing to see and you know at least let's look over here
involve that friend will see the airplane. in that airplane you know they were carrying the bomb into that airplane oh it's about do you know what time it was. the night of the. it was eight fifteen. i was in my house in front of the aisle char i had been used paper spread out and was reading it like i had just opened it and i filled the bluish white light coming in from the garden run a hole in the boy and call it. it
was complete darkness and i couldn't move i was buried under the house eventually i managed to get out by walking barefoot across a wooden board people were completely blackened and her burns came winners were torn apart or on none of them a woman were walking naked in the streets covering themselves with their hands ashamed. that was that all the time when everybody finished breakfast the heat was so intense that flash from out it and black and just like when you burn toast it was like that. but it wasn't that other disfigured corpses were naked except for the watch and if you. as
a bit of this was own that it was left to identify the body is my skin rotted and to pass on my own to destructed money to make a tea from herbs i drank his tea every day for the rest of the year since we didn't have medicine and we had just natural cures you know these are all children they were all bad food in my second at least the least mother was trying to help but she was also a victim they didn't really have any medication because the so they used things like tamper a while to try to hew go get your stab of it and it was a living hell of a leg hell on earth and then. well that's great that you brought your children here to put it this is not a fun place to be here but thank you thank you very much good morning to you see some black and lunch boxes in another building please take your time to look at
them. lloyd i can remember all well it is freely how difficult i don't want to remember. rocky's fight to convey the dreadful images runs counter to the priorities of our country actually japan looks for ways to rewrite its history we have many pictures of it to it's in the textbooks but. that committee says it is too. got to and that young people know. the facts is fading away. japan has tendencies of korea umbrella of the us and it's kind of the policy their logic is it's
a necessary evil nuclear weapon the society. the office whole explanation of the. united states. has been introduced to this country as well. not make war means precipitate the end of the second world war and it saved a lot of people. i remember hiroshima was one exultation i were delighted that i had been fighting the japanese for four years i was a pearl harbor on the destroyer the morning bear. but as time went on with the knowledge that we could have won the war with all that useful form i would. regret. hiroshima nagasaki their target cities for atomic bomb we were kicked intact because they wanted to know exactly
how the effect was to be. why their prime we used the bomb we cut off almost all. the wire in the area. how big could pitch in a few months. three days after hiroshima it was not a stock it seventy five thousand. the annual commemoration of the bombing gave me the opportunity to meet with me from madison actually the student had just returned from the united states. and i took an american history class and we started we used over to only one bomb and the teacher asked what you are the most that if and i got to have aspects of drop in
atomic bombs in japan and let's think about it on this cost basis or. i was quite shocked by that question i realize but then they did tell people about their consequences or they told me i am going out early. my grandmother never told me anything i only heard the whole story quite recently all right after it entered my second year of university but. i thought this could be the only time i hear it and i remember it's made me very happy. for you know along with her what did i share to strongly in the past it was just the two of us i was always around her as i grew up but it discovering that she or was a grandmother i didn't know. it only things my grandma has only recently to get a feeling of guilt. but she has never shown any anger towards the united states. when you open will of others all
destroy a further economic wall plus the fire it was such a devastating burdens. and destroys the will of the people it's like. he's grandiose and the story became a volunteer in the sky i had to the speak in a study group and all the experiences. ha ha ha my mother never talked about it because she felt guilty it said she survived. the mother and sister never crying for help. and yes at the time we were all looking for her. she tried to fix some of it and i thought oh how moderate continued his woma to blot all over her but it's how should
i. kill my bestie i was at school playing marbles when suddenly he called on flash bang pickup and however i didn't see the flash of light one of the farmhouses was burning and i was very scared to see that q that's where my memory of the horoscopes and plate nine. what the snow my mother couldn't express herself normally was so my father was here in a psychiatric hospital how i couldn't see her very own the doctors didn't link her condition to their plumbing well they thought my mother was there for my mother had
become one saying that she was put away in a place like a brazen to see her their laziness so old as oh. yes if the bomb was the only thing in your mind you will go insane. eat up and i get a room with an internal courage to talk about it but i must insist that i cannot speak you know. nothing my daughter is a french woman. you know my daughter's child. kitty got the second child to fall out with it because he was born with six fingers . in him this is my fault. that i was exposed to the bond. some up with iraqi units so my grandchild covered in blood in his hand for the
first time. this i saw the flash of the atomic only. my oldest son had a problem with the love in the hearts and over months and some of they had surgery and they found out that because he was genetic i blame myself if i see him now more than. before i was not afraid to also have told these that the bone would be from one generation to the next one. when the young people are worried they can turn to the radiation effects research foundation established by american scientists after the bombs drop the institute gathers statistical studies on the victims that he and that assumption of. the time i'm on my green town
just the box and i'm on what's on the bottom two of her children died of cancer here and now is there a link. that we have been doing research based on statistical models since one nine hundred forty eight we have not found any link to it so we decided to study the d.n.a. of hiba cushions night. generations . until now i hadn't really been afraid but i've heard that my generation has more problems than the second generation did i know. because i know. the disease is caused by the genetic mutations are such a tragedy. what are you sure you want to know. and you also have newer information and it's not really well understood
a lot of experimental what are called trans genetic type of effects effects that would not necessarily appear in the children of people exposed to radiation would maybe even skip generations. until the results of the american japanese and asians d.n.a. studies are known the younger generation is left wondering and given the social stigma attached to the radiation this doubt could take so much and all the children of the. victims. my husband was of sand that his daughter was labeled who share in the press this look at this branch of him to meet that's when he proposed to me think that i was he who should really bothered him. i was worried about what would happen to our
children at the time it was considered a transmittable disease so i didn't know what would happen. i thought well if it happens it happens i. my love is stronger than my fear you know what i still worry about my wife and daughter will be affected by the involved there. my mother in law feels responsible as she suffers the most innocent discussed yet. i was born and raised in hiroshima outsiders always emphasize that i am from here ashima sure she might or ashima i don't enjoy that very much. there could be does not mean been for a series she must have been you know to eat it to make a contribution. i know it has been so since university i learned a lot about conflicts in the world. to the real secret and always the children.
in general and. the nuclear powers are perfectly aware that their bombs are ten twenty one hundred. but with unbound cynicism and military are searching for more flexible uses. and there are discussions about the development of nuclear weapons of smaller caliber or a capacity to penetrate the earth deeper american plans to develop. weapons that we say would not spread radioactivity actually and such weapons only give a short distance under the earth and store of more radioactive debris and again in the case and from. that type of radioactive fallout was limited because of the severe burst right up that's not the same as all of your church or building materials themselves contaminated by the force of the explosion now we've moved in
the second nuclear age. we have moved into an era when nuclear weapons are threatened for war fighting purposes if you simply have weapons that are stretch edges huge bombs that's more for terror but if you have smaller weapons that might be a temptation to use them to smoke out taliban's or what have you. the superpowers planned their next nuclear armageddon the families if you know she might lanterns there is a surreal feeling. symbols and words are all that the japanese passed this had to confront the threat and these are loaded with the memory of having once been bad guys or young people in japan except he might and i was lucky. we should. all get out but. we should all what. we know. to count get. something done. on treats he
doesn't mean we should be quiet. that's why we can't be quiet and to announce. to higher on thousand japanese politicians nation coming years ago that perhaps it's time for japan now to consider the possibility of our being the police. us bonds rocket technology we have abundant papunya abundant. it's hard to tell to the public will react when comment decides to go nuclear. my supposition is if. south korea and north
korea if the united and their group of nuclear weapons or one night deputies public opinion will change. because nuclear deterrence is a fact about it saddens me to think that we have found no other way to live in peace is going on a major panic why is this bomb this means that less than a few ashima and a saki has been lost in the second mouthful the twenty first century will be the center of china this prediction scares many japanese and makes them think it's stronger with the united states and no he does she my is not an end it's
a scream heralding a new chapter in human history a nuclear age stimulated by the scope of the devastation the united states launches its pursuit of the absolute wreck that it selects the pacific ocean for its lord tory but this liberal tory isn't happy. imagine if. and when it's their country. and i. went into a bomb that is on phone six o'clock went out and she my shot every day for twelve years out they still want that. and they they just sit. there the fight. evelyn lives in honolulu where she attends college like other inhabitants of the marshall islands an archipelago lost in the middle of the pacific ocean she lives
in exile forced their way by the fallout of nuclear testing fifty years later her island is still contaminated and the united states are not really taking full responsibility of what they did. there's a saying all. we're going to give you when reading can it is is just doesn't seem fair to me. they run them off the island and the island the marshal on is. it where your went down into and you do the. i j is to. finish school and my people. the economy of her country depends on american aid and the on balance dialog between the islanders and the almighty america tears the young woman apart how do you obtain justice from the united states when you are marshallese and maybe with a memory the only weapon evelyn inherited the reason americans are giving us money
because of us awake wish i'd just go and make sure that their story was in the way that they still remember it as the one that suffered more from the bot. i was at a conference and you caught the title what i think a set of i did a presentation. and they were all shocked because they were like. what. i mean there was there was a bomb commercial. and then it would be good in the one in the regime. and i'm like yeah i'm going like where is the martian. and it's all in the marshall islands was. between hawaii. and you know it didn't exist so i had to tell him no. actually. i am one of them from there.
the price of freedom from the most needy fascist machine in history. those who fought to win that stand proud. against the tide of history being rewritten. sixty six years of free trade on our t.v. . twenty years ago the largest country in. the sorts of places. but how did you choose. which began the journey. where did it take to.
