America dropping the atomic bombs on Japan was necessary..

Con

I believe they should not have done it, as Japan was influenced by Germany to attack the Pearl harbor base of America.
Another thing is that America should also have attacks on of military base of Japan instead of dropping the Atom bomb in cities

Pro

Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor was not entirely of German influence. Japan was already angered at the Allied forces for the way they were treated at the Paris Peace Conference. Japan was completely shut out and ignored in all decisions of the Treaty of Versailles.

Also, attacking Japan's bases would not have worked because of population and strength. There were 10 Japanese troops for every 1 American troop. America was greatly outnumbered. Dropping the atomic bombs was much smarter and safer for America because it saved much more lives than would have been lost if America decided to attack any other way.
