Hiroshima and Nagasaki
The cities are near the coast. Japan is small nation, bounded by sea, with a litter of island in the vicinity. Access to the sea from any part of Japan, is easy, short.
The 'two scourges' which hit the 'two cities' indicate that the attack shall be made by two different 'scourges'. Scourges stands for any thing that brings destruction, misery, suffering in its path. The two scourges, the two American aircrafts, which targeted the two cities of Japan, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, on 5th and 9th august, 1945, dropping atomic bombs on the civil populace, broke the back of Japanese resistance. Even with out this naked show of power, Japan was reeling under the impact of the defeat of Germany and the death of Hitler. The bombing, President of the United States Truman claimed, was the means of ending the war, in a trice.
The devastation, which followed the bombing, was beyond the wildest expectation of the bomb's use as means of bringing Japan down on her heels. The people of the two cities, who faced the fury of the atomic explosion, 'cried for help from the great immortal God'.
Now a days Japan has been evolved so much that United States of America is behind the Technology of Japan. The people of Japan had recovered from the scarce of the Explosion and have emerged towards the achievements.
