The United States of America did the right thing in dropping the Atomic Bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. We dropped bombs as a retaliation to the Japanese killing 60,000 to 70,000 american citizens and injuring almost 140,000 more at the bombing of Pearl Harbour. The Pearl Harbor attack did not benefit Japan in the end because we retaliated back by dropping an Atomic Bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. By dropping the bombs on Japan we ended the war and saved thousands of American lives by not sending them into combat or war anymore.

The U.S. should not have dropped the atomic bomb on Japan. The U.S. shouldn't have because it killed tens of thousands of civilians. Also it destroyed their economy that they had before the war. In Fact the Japanese even hoped for a negotiated peace and a conditional surrender, and the Americans only demanded for the unconditional surrender of Japan. The use of the atomic bomb was unethical and immoral as if created a new meaning of total war by destroying thousands of civilians in grotesque manner.

If we didnt drop the atomic bomb we would not have won the war and japan could have won. We dropped the bomb because japan are the type of people to be cornered by 5 people and kill one before they die. The whole war was a reaction to your bombing of Pearl Harbour. You brought that on yourselfs

The use of the atomic bomb was unethical and immoral as if created a new meaning of total war by destroying thousands of civilians in grotesque manner. William D. Leahy, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff stated: "My own feeling is that in being the first to use it, we had adopted an ethical standard common to barbarians of the Dark Ages. I was not taught to war in that fashion, and wars cannot be won by destroying women and children."
