Reserve Chairmen for one very interesting aspect, but also many of the other cabinet member positions,, why this is? is US president just a puppet ?

    "is US president just a puppet ?"

    Let me fill you in on how is worked, all easily researched and verifiable.

    Allies form The Manhattan Project - comprising of the USA, Britain and Canada; 3 largest allied with Russia ommitted by design.

    These three partners meet in Quebec/1943 and all signed an agreement; no sharing of info with anyone; no partner can use the device against another partner; and no one partner can use the device without the direct permission of the other partners.

    "The Quebec Agreement stipulated that the US and UK would pool their resources to develop nuclear weapons, and that neither country would use them against the other, or against other countries without mutual consent, or pass information about them to other countries."

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quebec_Agreement

    - meaning -

    a/ it was never Trumans call, it was that of all 3 partners...

    b/ if it was anyone's call it would have been FDRs [the bombs were created to use against Germany given Hitler threatened to nuke the allies; but germany folded before the first bomb was ready]

    c/ the targets were chosen by the military then agreed to by all partners.

    Henry Lewis Stimson and Truman himself agreed which makes them equally guilty for the atrocity.

    Henry Lewis Stimson (September 21, 1867 – October 20, 1950) was an American statesman, lawyer, and Republican Party politician. He served as Secretary of War (1911–1913) under President William Howard Taft, Secretary of State (1929–1933) under President Herbert Hoover, and Secretary of War (1940–1945) under Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman. As Secretary of War, Stimson took direct and personal control of the entire atomic bomb project, with immediate supervision over General Leslie Groves, head of the Manhattan Project. Both Roosevelt and Truman followed Stimson's advice on every aspect of the bomb, and Stimson overruled military officers when they opposed his views. That is best seen after military planners had selected Kyoto as the most promising target in southern Japan for nuclear attack. Stimson, remembering his honeymoon in that city, once again overruled his generals.
