New PDF release: La Hora de los Muertos (Spanish Edition)

By Mario Luis Altuzar Suarez

ISBN-10: 1973995190

ISBN-13: 9781973995197

Sonó en l. a. Catedral, los angeles Hora de los Muertos. Poemario en tributo a las víctimas del terrorismo nuclear: Hiroshima y Nagasaki. En 33 poemas, uno de prólogo, dos de Corolario y 30 en Cinco Soles, el Juez Supremo, alejado de los angeles malicia al ser nonato, recibe a los testigos del Apocalipsis Nuclear.

Fue causado, tal vez por blunders, por locura o por ambición. Lo narra el escritor y periodista comiteco, Mario Luis Altuzar Suárez, formado en Monterrey y perfeccionado en l. a. Ciudad de México.

Visualiza como “Fueron llegando/ Uno a uno/ Dos a Dios” en el Templo Espacial del Juez alejado de los angeles Malicia por ser un nonato que ejerce su derecho a l. a. vida, con sus testigos de shipment: El Desclavado, Tonantzin, Quetzalcóatl, para sentenciar los angeles continuación de los angeles especie en el Quinto Sol, los angeles nuestra, nuevamente amenazada.

El autor, Premio UNESCO de Literatura 1992, Medalla al Mérito Literario de los angeles LV Legislatura de los angeles Cámara de Diputados, dos Premio México de Periodismo, entre otros galardones, les comparte su obra primigenia presentada en l. a. Sala Manuel M Ponce del Palacio de Bellas Artes, en 1985.

No debemos olvidar que al soltar los angeles bomba Little Boy a ten mil 450 metros de altura sobre Hiroshima el bombardero estadounidense B-29 llamado Enola homosexual, pilotado por el teniente coronel Paul Tibbets, a las a las 08:15 horas del lunes 6 de agosto de 1945, y fifty five segundos después, al explotar a six hundred metros, encima de los angeles Clínica de Shima, fulminó a a hundred and forty mil personas.

¿Por qué? El argumento: Porque los rusos vencen el 30 de abril de 1945 en Berlín a Adolfo Hitler. Dejaría fuera a Estados Unidos en l. a. repartición geoestratégica. Lo sabe Harry S. Truman, presidente estadounidense, y cuatro y medio meses después hace su excesiva demostración de fuerza el 6 y el nine de agosto y el 15 de agosto, se rinde Japón y concluye los angeles Guerra del Pacífico y por tanto los angeles Segunda Guerra Mundial con el Poderoso Atómico Unipolar.

Empero, Todo es efímero. Y el poderoso imperio debe compartir l. a. bipolaridad al detonar l. a. Unión Soviética su primera bomba atómica el 22 de agosto de 1949, lo que inicia el llamado equilibrio del terror, vigente pese a l. a. disolución de l. a. Unión de Repúblicas Socialistas Soviéticas en 1991, y en aumento por el avance científico y tecnológico con l. a. nanotecnología que minimiza en tamaño y acrecienta su potencial destructivo.

Y el riesgo de desaparición es inminente. A las nine horas del nine de noviembre de 1979, las computadoras del NORAD del Monte Cheyenne, el Mando Nacional del Pentágono y el Mando Alternativo Nacional (situado en fortress Richie, Maryland) comenzaron a lanzar alarmas de un súbito ataque nuclear soviético de categoría MAO-3. ¡Eran falsas!

Otro botón de muestra: Stanislav Yevgráfovich Petrov un teniente coronel nacido en 1939, evitó el apocalipsis en 1983 al identificar correctamente una alerta de ataque con misiles como una falsa alarma. ¡Y hay muchos casos más!

¡Evitemos, entonces, los angeles Hora de los Muertos!
