Was Dropping the Atomic bombs a Crime Against Humanity?
Spiritual Messages From the Former U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt, Recorded on June 3rd, 2013

Was the dropping of the A-bomb ethically permissible or not? A public spiritual message from Master Ryuho Okawa, CEO and founder of Happy Science, shed light on an ethical controversy concerning World War II, a debate that continues to this day. Former U.S. President Truman was the man who decided to drop atomic bombs on Japan. Former U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt was the one who launched the Manhattan Project to develop the A-bomb in the first place. In this shocking spiritual message, the spirits of both former presidents truthfully speak about WWII. It offers important lessons for reconsidering the historical viewpoint of both Japan and the U.S., as well as for jointly creating world peace.

Master Ryuho Okawa: I will now summon the president who preceded Truman, a great man who made history in the 20th century, Franklin Roosevelt. Even though the system he created in the 20th century became a primary factor for the subsequent chaos, let’s talk to him.

Oh, President Franklin Roosevelt, 32nd U.S. President., who was in the office of the presidency during the outbreak of the war, please come down to the Hall of Great Awakening. Tell us the true significance of the outbreak of the war as well as your assessment of the war against Japan.

Moreover, how should today’s Japan behave with regard to the hegemony of new China and the savage behavior of North Korea? Should we maintain the post-war system or should we unilaterally deal with them? What are your opinions now, President Roosevelt? Please reveal your innermost thoughts to us. Please hear our requests.

Was the Battleship Arizona Left to Die at Pearl Harbor?

– There were no aircraft carriers in Pearl Harbor on the day of the attack, and there’s a theory that you might have known about the attack on Pearl Harbor. That the ciphers had been sufficiently decoded….

F. Roosevelt: The actual attack on Pearl Harbor had been foreseen as the “outbreak of war”; it was predicted about two years before the attack. No, it was even earlier than that. A simulation had been made about 20 years prior for the outbreak of a war between Japan and the US.

– Only old-style battleships, like the Arizona, were left in Pearl Harbor on that day. Why weren’t there any new aircraft carriers?

F. Roosevelt: Well, I’m afraid I can’t answer that question. , More than a thousand people were on the Arizona. 3,000 people died at Pearl Harbor, and about the same number of people lost their lives at the World Trade Center. If I were to say as President that they were knowingly sacrificed…

– The move wasn’t calculated?

F. Roosevelt: I would have been labelled unfit to be President if I had said they were sacrificed. I cannot remark on that…

– You can’t comment now?

F. Roosevelt: No, I can’t.


U.S. Forces Issued a Strange Order on the Day Before the Attack on Pearl Harbor

– By the morning of the Pearl Harbor attack, the Japanese bombardment had already been forecasted, hadn’t it?

F. Roosevelt: Yes, however, Hawaii hadn’t been informed of the strike.

– That’s right. It’s now on record, “Hawaii alone was not informed.”

F. Roosevelt: That information had not been passed to them. Wasn’t it….leaving them to die?

– Yet, two aircraft carriers in the area had been informed, hadn’t they?

F. Roosevelt: Oh, oh. No, that’s not so.

– Eh?

F. Roosevelt: Don’t try to get me to divulge those details. I mustn’t go on record. The aircraft carriers just happened to do some maneuvers on a Sunday.

– There weren’t any accounts of such orders from the U.S. mainland.

F. Roosevelt: Oh, oh… One of the military instructors probably thought up some kind of special maneuver.

– On a Sunday morning?

F. Roosevelt: Yep. They probably wanted to practice something.

– You said don’t try to get me to disclose those particulars. Well, doesn’t it mean you knew something?

F. Roosevelt: I don’t know. Anyway, it would be true to say that I wanted to see how much offensive power the Japanese military had.


What About the Great Effort Japan Put Into the “Peace Negotiations”?

– I want to mention that we were told that the Konoe and Tojo cabinets held peace negotiations with the US before the outbreak of war.

F. Roosevelt: Uh-huh.

– They were said to have sent special envoys and to have repeatedly held peace negotiations over a long period in order to avoid a war.

F. Roosevelt: Both sides had their own ways of putting things. Many of Japan’s top politicians and soldiers knew that Japan would ultimately be defeated if it waged a long war against the US, but they couldn’t convince their people of the truth. The majority of the population thought along the lines of, “We have never lost a war yet,” and “The divine wind’s blowing, and we’re bound to be victorious”. Of course, that put Japan at risk, and the decision makers couldn’t convince their people of the peril.

– You couldn’t convince the people of America either, could you?

F. Roosevelt: Hmm, it was the same situation in America. It was similar, but in Japan, there was also the feeling that the Japanese military could beat an enemy even 10 times its size.

– Thus, even though it looked as if negotiations were moving forward, in fact, “peace” was impossible. Had that been your intention right from the start?

F. Roosevelt: Yes, and wasn’t that the case in Japan as well? Even though the top brass believed they would lose, since they couldn’t convince the Japanese public, weren’t they preparing for war even as they negotiated?

– They were preparing for the worst-case scenario, but they mainly desired peace.

F. Roosevelt: Hmm. Well, you know, propaganda…

– Isn’t there some untruth to that?

F. Roosevelt: The actual concept of the “Greater East Asian Co-prosperity Sphere” is the same as the idea today’s China has “to have total control of (the Pacific region) as far as Hawaii by 2050”. Japan’s aim was approximate to that, and the vision had been well developed. Therefore, Japan and the US were bound to clash at some point.


More Respect for the Culture and Civilization of the Continent of China than for the Japanese Archipelago

– In other words, from the beginning, you saw the Japanese as upstarts, and had a plan to wage war and inflict a crushing defeat on them, didn’t you?

F. Roosevelt: It was more that I had a sense of affinity with China.

– Yes, is that related to the fact that your mother had many Chinese friends?

F. Roosevelt: Hmm. It was that I felt friendly towards China. If I had to choose between Japan and China, I wanted to protect China. Of course, China has a 5,000-year history. I felt that Japan was an island, and it wouldn’t be so terrible for an island to be defeated, but it would, of course, be dreadful if the entire culture and civilization of the continent of China were lost.


Was There a Potential to Use the A-bomb in Europe?

– Today, I mainly want to focus on whether it was right or wrong to use nuclear weapons, and I’d like to ask you about thoughts. After your death, …

F. Roosevelt: It was luckily not me who used the atomic weapons. Hahaha.

– It’s no laughing matter. It’s said that this project was launched while you were in the Office of Presidency, Mr. Roosevelt.

F. Roosevelt: First, scientists and engineers theoretically proved that it was possible to build an atomic bomb. They did research, and then politicians got involved in the process of making practical use of their findings. However, the military finally took advantage of the advances in technology.

– That may be true, but didn’t you have the idea, right from the very start, of dropping it on Japan?

F. Roosevelt: No, Europe was actually a possibility as well. It was a question of strength. If the war in Europe had dragged on, I think an option would have been to use the atomic bombs there. Nevertheless, America targeted Japan first.


F. Roosevelt Didn’t Recognize How Horrifying Communism Really Is

– Didn’t you think about the dangers of communism?

F. Roosevelt: I hadn’t thought that far in advance. I hadn’t yet realized that it was as scary as it truly is. In truth, I only understood how alarming communism was after the war ended. It was after the war, I began to understand that many purges would accompany communism, and they would, in effect, lead to the deaths of many citizens.

– Did you think that Stalin was a good man?

F. Roosevelt: He looked imposing because he had a moustache. [Laughs] How can I put it, in American terms, he had the feel of an elderly farmer whose hometown could rely on him. Hahaha.


Did You Prolong the War To Test Your Nuclear Technology?

– A little while ago, President Truman said that the atomic bombs had been built, and he wanted to see what they could do. His staff selected Hiroshima and Nagasaki for the experiment, and dropped two different types of bombs.

F. Roosevelt: That should not have been said in diplomatic talks. That should never have been said.

– Well, that might be true, but you’re already dead. You ought to speak more freely.

F. Roosevelt: Hmm. The Manhattan Project was already in existence, you see.

– Specifically “to drop an A-bomb on Japan”…..

F. Roosevelt: Well, after all, it had to be tested somewhere.


The Conviction That It Was “Right for the American-Style of Prosperity to Spread Around the World”

– I think it’s an issue of right and wrong, and what you see as good and evil.

F. Roosevelt: It was right for the American-style of prosperity to spread around the world, which effectively made World War II “just”.

– What makes you say it was just?

F. Roosevelt: Well, American-style prosperity could spread around the world, and that was a good thing.

– How would you define “American-style prosperity”?

F. Roosevelt: “Freedom” and “democracy”. These values have spread across the globe. It might not have happened if America hadn’t won the war. It was a success.


Gloating Over How Today’s China Cannot Rival America

– I’d like to ask a little about your opinions on the present day situation in the world. Now, East Asia remains tense because China has been dramatically boosting its military and expanding its hegemony, while America, on the other hand, has been showing a slight tendency toward decline. What form do you think modern society should take in the near future?

F. Roosevelt: If it means that “America has to fight China”, I guess that everything I’ve done will be re-examined. If America has to fight China, it wouldn’t be so bad if it were a war that ended with no deaths like the Cold War with the Soviet Union. However, if it went as far as a world war in which the US and China had to engage in physical combat, I imagine that people would again wonder whether I was right to have helped China.

– What level is China at now?

F. Roosevelt: Hmm. In its present position, it’s still not quite a match for America.


Washington and Lincoln Are Gods in America, But “I Am Above Them”.

– Who are the people around you?

F. Roosevelt: I am “an American God”. Who do you think would…

– Are you on your own?

F. Roosevelt: Eh?  I am “the god of America”, you know. I gave rise to “the American century”.

– How about Lincoln?

F. Roosevelt: In actuality, Lincoln was weak militarily.


Is Roosevelt Like an Emperor Watching Over the Whole of America?

– By the way, are you guiding people like Obama now?

F. Roosevelt: No, I’m not guiding Obama.

– Are you guiding the Republican Party? Surely, you’re not.

F. Roosevelt: I’m watching over the whole of America. I’m rather like an emperor.

– You’re watching over everything? But a spirit greater than you is guiding America, isn’t it?

F. Roosevelt: There’s no one above me in America.


Roosevelt Sees Jesus as a “Minor God”.

– I believe that you’re a Christian. Have you met Jesus or have had him speak to you?

F. Roosevelt: Religious leaders and politicians are different.

– You don’t meet with Christ? You’ve never met him?

F. Roosevelt: Uh-huh.

– We’ve heard former President Bush received guidance from Michael.

F. Roosevelt: He was guided by that minor god?

– What makes you say he’s minor?

F. Roosevelt: He’s a god of Israel, isn’t he? Insignificant.

– Have you ever met him?

F. Roosevelt: America is a big country, you know. Who do you think you’re talking to? America is a protector of Israel.

F. Roosevelt: I was born on earth at the right time to build a global empire. Are you confusing me with someone else?

– Then, how about someone who’s a bit more famous in worldly terms?

F. Roosevelt: I’m stating that I’m a god, do you understand?

– Well, with whom do you have the most contact?

F. Roosevelt: Didn’t I just declare to you that I’m a god?

– You also said that you were not allowed to meat Jesus Christ?

F. Roosevelt: Jesus is a minor god after all.

– A minor god? What do you mean?

F. Roosevelt: He’s weak.

– Weak…

– Then, please tell me, who do you regard as a “major god”?

F. Roosevelt: Haven’t I just told you that I’m the greatest? You see, I’m the one who created “the American century”.

I want this to continue; therefore, I’m now considering strategies against China. The shape of Japan’s future will be decided based on how much I determine to involve your country in this matter.


His Pride in Being “the God of America”

Master Ryuho Okawa: I’ve pretty much understood Truman, but a few things still exist about Franklin Roosevelt that I don’t understand. Anyway, he seems to embody the pride of today’s Americans, doesn’t he?

– Yes, he does.

Ryuho Okawa: Some things can’t be clarified. It was a situation similar to when the Japanese Prime Minister went to America and didn’t get taken seriously. Roosevelt also seems to have some pride in being from the most powerful country in the world.

According to him, he is “The God of America”, and he doesn’t want “to be considered the same as the ‘defeated messiah’ of Ancient Israel”. Good luck to him.

I think Roosevelt will become weaker when America declines. Mind you, it’s something that’s perfectly obvious. There’s a relationship between the god of a country and that country’s prosperity. The god becomes powerful along with the country, and when the country weakens, so too does the god. That’ll no doubt happen to Roosevelt as well.

It’s just that his pride is so very strong right now, he considers Lincoln inept militarily. [Laughs]. Well, let’s hold that as his opinion.

It’d be strange for an American President to speak only to Japan’s advantage, so I think we need people like him around as well.

– Thank you very much.

In Roosevelt’s spiritual message, new truths also emerged along the following lines:

  • The influence of Chinese lobbying in America.
  • Whether America would have entered the war if Pearl Harbor hadn’t been attacked.

  • Roosevelt’s schemes to establish an American hegemony.
  • Whether the allied nations discussed the post-war system before the war started.
  • Whether the Battle of Okinawa was a rehearsal for landing troops on the Japanese mainland.
  • How Roosevelt regards President Obama.
  • Roosevelt’s current position in the Real World.
  • Who Roosevelt recognized as the greatest god after him.
  • Why Roosevelt wants to prevent Japan from possessing nuclear weapons.
