    65 years ago after the Second World War on 6 and 9 august 1945 the World became the witness for the nuclear strikes to Japanese cities Hiroshima and Nagasaki. As we know, the main reasons to use the nuclear weapon against these cities were to make Japan capitulate subject to conditions of Potsdam Declaration on 26 July 1945, and to save thousands of lives of Americans soldiers, which could die in case of land operation in Japan during the final period of WW II.
    However, as many military experts think, in fact, the USA made real nuclear weapon test on the civilian population of Japanese cities.
    Firstly, it can be proved by two factors:
    - Hiroshima and Nagasaki had no strategic role at that period of war.
    - Americans scientists carried out scale investigations after nuclear strikes on destroyed cities.
    There were more than 200.000 casualities during the bombing.
    Ecological and humanitarian consequences were of catastrophic scale.
    However, the Japanese government for a score of reasons forgave the USA for this inhuman crime rather soon.
    One of the main reason was the USA and other co-belligerents started to occupy the territory of Japan after Japan signed the instrument of surrender. The USA under the security pact forced Japan to be dependent on the U.S. military power, and made the government of the land of the rising sun hostage from American policy.
    Today Japan is economic giant, but politically weak. Today Japan holds 22% of U.S national debt; Japan is one of the main creditor, that’s why it depends on America in financial sector, in view of what follows if Japan refuse to use dollar the economy of Japan will fall.
    When the afire mentioned factors are analized, it can be totaly declared that Japan is still under America control ally, and the land of the rising sun is going to lend all-round support not only in economic sphere but in world political arena too.
    We shouldn't forget the historical evidence. The USA used nuclear weapon against Japan, as the result there were a lot of civilian people die. There was not extreme necessity to use the nuclear weapon at that period of time indeed.
    At the present time popular majority of Japan grieve about the dead, while the Japanese government continues to develop political-military alliance with U.S., which brought the land of the rising sun so much misfortune.
