A welcome and apposite comment from Catherine Wignall (M Star August 18) about the lessons of nuclear war.
Having watched my son's copy of Grave of the Fireflies many times, I feel that it is one of the most expressive anti-war films ever made.
Its humanity shines through the drenching inhumanity that slaughters the innocent, regardless of whose side they are on. It should be watched every Hiroshima Day just as Oh What a Lovely War should be viewed every Armistice Day.
The legacy of Hiroshima, Nagasaki - including British and US POW's held there - coupled with Australian desert experiments and Bikini Atoll, are a testament to the profit to be made out of genocide.
Whereabouts in the Nevada desert were the liberated US survivors from Hiroshima and Nagasaki taken to? Did they ever really get home?
We have yet to be told of the extent of illness suffered by our own due to bomb tests.
And now Iraq and elsewhere suffers the use of spent uranium munitions.
There is no forgetting and there will be no forgiveness for these appalling war crimes.
