Warning Letter Sent to Japan Harry S. Truman sent a letter that read:“Read this carefully as it may save your life or the life of a relative or friend. In the nextfew days, some or all of the cities named on the reverse side will be destroyed byAmerican bombs. These cities contain military installations and workshops orfactories which produce military goods. We are determined to destroy all of the toolsof the military clique which they are using to prolong this useless war. But,unfortunately, bombs have no eyes. So, in accordance with America’s humanitarianpolicies, the American Air Force, which does not wish to injure innocent people, nowgives you warning to evacuate the cities named and save your lives. America is notfighting the Japanese people but is fighting the military clique which has enslaved theJapanese people. The peace which America will bring will free the people from theoppression of the military clique and mean the emergence of a new and better Japan.You can restore peace by demanding new and good leaders who will end the war. Wecannot promise that only these cities will be among those attacked but some or all ofthem will be, so heed this warning and evacuate these cities immediately.”
