King La Ding proposes this resolution: The U.S nuking of Japan in 1945, was totally unnecessary to these ends, 1. it was not needed to subjugate Japan and 2. was not the sole viable solution to WW2.

If you disagree with these claims, accept the debate and prepare to be destructionized.

I'm Going to make this the easy mode round, for an understanding if I don't little con will forfeit the next rounds and probably kill themselves, so this is the easy mode round.

Many losers and warmongers have long since stated that the nuking of Hiroshima and Nagasaki Japan in 1945 was completely necessary, to the ends of subjugating Japan and winning and ending WW2. These same losers have claimed that with any other alternative, the U.S and other allied nations would have seen high numbers of casualties, making these solutions implausible. Now I say, that's not true at all, anyone with a working nervous system can comprehend this simple fact. And being King La Ding, I do feel somewhat sorry for little Con to be doing this revisionist history constantly.

Now being an easy mode round, let me start to explain why little con is wrong in every way, and more importantly the dropping the atomic bomb and the whole concept of its necessity is a flawed foundation in itself.

Proponents of warmongering often claim that the Japanese people would never have accepted surrender, and neither would the emperor at the time, Hirohito. However this flawed claim has many cracks in it to begin with, mostly being 100% incorrect. The reason Japan had not already surrendered, is because of the way U.S framed it, as an 'unconditional surrender' it is well known that the U.S had said they would only accept a Japanese surrender under the blanket of an unconditional surrender. Here is where the cracks show up, the Japanese people in this time period saw the emperor, as a sort of deity. Most people accept this is a clear truth, but what they fail to see is how ambiguous a term like unconditional surrender is.

It's clear that the people of Japan would not willingly surrender under this, but rather fight to the death because the terms did not ensure that the Japanese throne would remain in place. Both Hirohito and the U.S knew that if there was no assurance that the Japanese throne would remain in place, that the Japanese people would not willingly surrender, but rather fight to the death. An assurance such as this would have been more than enough to get a Japanese surrender.

Now why do I say this, because the Japanese had been thoroughly destructionized and left without allies long before the nuking. Sea blockades by Allied Nations had been preventing them from feeding their people and their army fully, Japan was already 'defeated.'

Now, little con, let's see just how much you know.
