Dropping the bomb was necessary because It ended the war quicker. Saved more lives. Ended holocaust sooner. Led to win in the Pacific, and ended up helping us surround Germany.

Con

Our position on the dropping of the atomic bomb dropped on both Hiroshima and Nagasaki stands that we oppose the United States actions. As they were based on revenge rather than any other reason our opposition may state. The amount killed at Pearl harbour was a small fraction compared to what we caused at Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

You also have the consider that almost 150,000 civilians were killed because of the bombing at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, only 2,386 died at the bombing at Pearl Harbor.
