74 years ago this week, the US dropped two atomic bombs on almost a quarter of a million innocent civilians.

First use of nukes by the United States is "on the table." That is the official policy of the United States government. Last week's Democratic debates made clear that is unlikely to change under the leadership of either party.

Americans must be informed of this truth, and must be informed to act. Antiwar.com works to inform Americans of these truths.
