Auferre trucidare rapere falsis nominibus imperium, atque ubi solitudinem faciunt, pacem appellant. -Tac. Agricola 30 (De vita et moribus Iulii Agricolae)-

To ravage, to slaughter, to usurp under false titles, they call empire; and where they make a desert, they call it peace. (Tacitus - Oxford Revised Translation) .

On 6th August 1945, at 1,900 feet above the centre of the Japanese city of Hiroshima, America detonated the first of only two Weapons of Mass Destruction to have ever been used aggressively against another nation. Creating a fireball of a temperature in excess of that of the surface of the Sun, the city and its ordinary civilian residents were vapourised instantly. Around 160,000 people died in the blast with some 77,000 dying later of the radiation exposure.
