1945 : Japanese Atom Bomb In Korea

On October 3, 1946 the Atlanta Constitution reported this :

“Japan developed and successfully tested an atomic bomb three days prior to the end of the war. She destroyed unfinished atomic bombs,  secret papers and her atomic bomb plant only hours before the advance units of the Russian Army moved into Konan, Korea. site of the project. Japanese scientists who developed the bomb are now in Moscow, prisoners of the Russians. They were tortured by their captors seeking atomic “know-how.”

    I wonder. The account I read long ago, and remember only vaguely, was that Japan had had two atom bomb projects. (Army and Navy, perhaps?) One was destroyed in the bombing raids and the other was abandoned when a calculation revealed how much copper would be required.

    I assume that that copper would be for the windings of electric motors to drive the compressors on a gas diffusion plant for isotope separation.

    I am open to correction: anyone?

    I couldn’t help but read the story on the front page about the 6 and 7 year old brothers who’s parents didn’t want them. Nowadays they just abort them, even after they are born in California. Yeah, lawmakers there want to make it if a mother decides she doesn’t want the baby, she can let it die up to it’s 7th day outside the womb. 😢

    Tony this was a cover story to deflect from the infiltration of the Manhattan Project by Stalin’s spies …The Japanese Army’s biological and chemical warfare expertise – namely the grotesque experiments of the notorious Unit 731 – did, however, attract the interest of the Americans and Soviets who captured and relocated scientists

    Every history I have read about the Pacific War and the end of that war has said that Japan was not close to having an A-bomb. If they had come even remotely close it would have been big news and noted in such histories.

    Germany came closer but the commando raid and then bombing of the heavy water processing facility in Norway and then the sinking of the last of the heavy water to the bottom of the Fjord really set them back.

    The simple fact is that relative to the US, the Japan of that time just was not as developed technically or scientifically as the Japan of today.

    The two greatest technical achievements in weapons developed and used by Japan during WW II were the Long Lance torpedo, which was unequaled by any torpedo produced by any combatant during WW II. And the Mitsubishi Zero which by early 1943 had lost its performance edge and the outstanding pilots they had begun the war with were almost all dead.

    Japan never got that edge back. Though they could and did produce some great aircraft designs from 1943 to the end of the war, they lacked the alloys, the metallurgical expertise, and the ability to mass produce high precision parts to make the more powerful engines and various other parts of those designs reliable. And even if they had all of those things, they simply did not have the industrial capacity to compete with the US. What they would have done though is increase US casualties but not by much because Japan had squandered the knowledge and experience of those wonderfully trained pilots they started the war with.

    Let’s take the very aircraft that dropped the A-bombs. The project to develop the B-29 cost more than the Manhattan project. There was not another country at that time that could have developed it, let alone mass produced it. It was after all, the most complex machine ever manufactured by man up to that time.

    Japan not only could not produce that machine, or anything like it; They failed to produce an effective defense against it with the exception of a kamikaze. And even those were pretty much negated, even in day light, once P-51 Mustangs, flying out of Iwo Jima were able to escort those bombers.

    In the article from the Atlanta Constitution there is also another false statement.

    There were no conditions set or agreed upon prior to the surrender. The claim there was a deal that the Emperor would be allowed to stay as a condition of the surrender is false. MacArthur, as Supreme Commander of the occupation of Japan was given the power to make that determination. And after an interview with Hirohito, in which the Emperor agreed to help with the establishment of a democratic form of government in Japan, MacArthur decided that the institution, in a symbolic form, would be allowed to remain.
