In a photo slideshow by The Telegraph, cities ravaged by war are shown as they are today, with some, like Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan, still bearing scars. After the bombing of Hiroshima, 70 years ago today, another bomb, dubbed the Fat Man, was dropped on Nagasaki, Aug. 9, 1945, killing as many as 80,000 people. Six days after the U.S. dropped the second bomb, Japan surrendered, ending World War II.
Now, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park stands where the first atomic bomb fell, dedicated to the city’s tragic legacy as the first in the world to suffer a nuclear attack. In Nagasaki, the one-legged rubble of a torii — an archway into a sacred shrine— remains at Sannō Shrine to commemorate the day the city was bombed.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump was reeling from sharp rebukes at home and abroad over his surprise announcement last month to immediately pull American troops out of Syria when he flew into the al Asad airbase in neighboring Iraq the day after Christmas.
Inside a canvas Quonset hut, one of the arced prefabricated structures used by the military and surrounded by concertina wire, Trump received operational briefs from U.S. commanders suggesting a territorial victory against Islamic State was within sight, but the military needed just a bit more time, U.S. officials said.
In a message to the force sent Tuesday, Adm. Karl L. Schultz said both he and the Department of Homeland Security Secretary remain "fully engaged" on the missing pay issue, which have caused "anxiety and uncertainty" for Coasties and their families.
