I think it's highly probable they just firebombed with napalm, etc, Hiroshima and Nagasaki. But then, even history and "time" is part of the illusion.   I think one thing we can be certain about, whether is was nuke bombs or a complete fraud....the same members of a supranational crime gang were overrepresented at the higher levels of the operations either way.   Black magicians either way.   The world is a mass-hallucination, with lesser hallucinations within it.
