Rover the "military?" man full of crap as usual. Most of the victims of Hiroshima and Nagasaka were from the EXPLOSIVE force and FIREBALL and extreme high temperatures.

Sure thousands died from the radiation, but that was not the main killer.

"In a US estimate of the total immediate and short term cause of death, 15–20% died from radiation sickness, 20–30% from burns, and 50–60% from other injuries, compounded by illness.

The Hiroshima prefecture health department estimated that, of the people who died on the day of the explosion, 60% died from flash or flame burns, 30% from falling debris and 10% from other causes. During the following months, large numbers died from the effect of burns, radiation sickness, and other injuries, compounded by illness."

Sure. Sure it was bad. Real bad. But media is full of BS saying it was anything like or worse than Hiroshima. Not even close. This story goes along the line of global warming.

And you thought "pork barrel" spending stopped!

"When it comes to disaster relief, the United States does not have a comprehensive approach. A new study finds Congress has spent at least $136 billion on disaster relief since 2011, but that spending is spread out and not coordinated.

Daniel Weiss and Jackie Weidman, the authors of the study, emphasized that no federal agency – neither the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) nor the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), for example – kept accurate records of the government’s spending on disaster relief and that the information was not readily available from any source. To calculate their estimate, the authors had to examine the appropriations bills and disaster relief supplementals approved by Congress between fiscal years 2011 and 2013."

What a mindless comparison. Today's reporters must be a generation of uneducated bumpkins.

The 'power' of the Hiroshima blast was that it was composed of ATOMIC RADIATION that KILLED tens of thousands of non-combatant men, women, kids, animals.

dyingov is happy it killed so many. Wonder what side of his****he'd be singing out of it if the Islamist Terrorists blew away his entire family. How would he feel if I say 'that's great!?

What a low class hick he is!

This is considered an ACT of GOD. I hope that change is coming to this sad and corrupt city. EMS and shelter planning would top the list. Companies like Chesapeake Energy are destroying our farms here and so far there is no sign of change.

Amazing, one city hit with TWO tornadoes of EF5 magnitude in 14 years.

The world has seen only a handful of "F-5s", thank God.

Terrible tragedy, prayers for the families.
