  • Innocent People" I think not.

    The U.S. was right for bombing Japan because Germany already found out about splitting atoms and they would of told their designs to their allies, Japan, and Japan could of potentially bombs "Innocent" Americans. Also, if we hadn't have bombed Japan, Russia would of invaded them and the "Innocent People" of Japan would of committed suicide, rather than dying from Russia.

  • Of course Not!!!

    By using Nuclear Bombs, USA became a wild, uncivilized country who wanted to show to the world who will be the next, new police of the world (to replace Germany and Japan) The same happened with Philippine, they fought Spain to gain independence, to end up as US colony and then to fight again against new conquer.

  • When you start a war and loose, you are responsible for all the people killed.

    The simple fact is that Japan started the war and it was Japanese policy that led to the deaths of those in Nagasaki and Hiroshima. The strategic and tactical aspects of the US decision to drop/where to drop are second to the reality that the bombs were the de facto summation of Japanese policy set in the year 1941. Much of the No camps argument is centered on anti-American views stemming from other geo-political issues than rejection of US policy vis-a-vie the bombings of Japan. It also saved millions of lives, both Japanese and American

  • No, it was not right but it has to be done!

    US was wrong to bomb the cities where there were civilians. Although after bombing the cities the world learnt a lesson that how much devastating and lethal were these nuclear bombs. With these nuclear bombs the countries can threat each other but can not attack each other with nuclear bombs because they know that no one will survive. The gap between WWI and WWII is almost 20 years. If there were no bombing there would have been WWIII resulting in millions of death. US was right to bomb but the way was not right. War is between soldiers not the civilians including children and women.

  • Go Truman!! USA

    HMM and after all these years has war ever been humane? And people at pearl weren't innocent? Um that's bull crap that's inhumane to say it was OK to do that. That was inhumane it didn't solve anything. U.S. ended the war with the atomic bomb . Pearl harbor just created more conflict for everyone. I don't believe war will solve things. But obviously it has, and Truman made the right decision it was not inhumane its just war.

  • They believed the emperor was a deity

    Religion poisons everything! What a terrible nation. They raped Asia in the name of their god( Nanking) they tortured and mutilated POWs. They had forced labour and obeyed no laws and ignored humanity. Saving one U.S. Life made it worthwhile. It is the fault of a nation that encouraged belief that a mammal was a God that caused them to fight on when it was futile. Ask China, Philippines etc if the bomb was right. Japan had no regard for any human life. Well done Truman. I imagine it really was not that hard a decision

  • Yes it was right!

    Germany and Japan had already know about splitting atoms. And if we didn't bomb them who knows when the war would have ended. Yes we did kill thousands of people, but they bombed us first! They brought us into the war! We were just getting back at them for what they did.

  • Nuclear warfare was inevitable!

    The germans and the british already had the knowledge of atom splitting years before we did. If we did not act fast then it might have been the US who was bombed. Also, the "island hopping" warfare that the US used was slaughtering millions of young men who had not lived a life what so ever.

  • Was killing MILLIONS the right thing to do?

    It was a completely unnecessary thing to do. I look on the ‘Yes’ column and all these people are saying that it would’ve saved many lives. Are you sure about that? Because it actually killed so MILLIONS of innocent lives in Japan, the first bombing happened while there were still people in Hiroshima, and they had absolutely no idea it was coming to them. The second bombing happened because the Japanese people refused to surrender for honor, which lead to the U.S not bothering to send SOLDIERS who agreed to risk their own life for their country out in the battlefield, but instead to just drop another bomb. The thing about the second bomb in Nagasaki was that the U.S actually told them to save their own lives as they were planning to bomb there. But! That isn’t even the worst part… As the pilot was flying near the drop point, he noticed it was too CLOUDY to drop the bomb AND the fuel was low so he didn’t drop it in Nagasaki but somewhere much further away, killing even MORE innocent people that had no idea that their life was going to be ruined.
    The bombing was such a dumb thing to do. Another reason to why Truman dropped the bomb was because he wanted avoid risking invasion from the Japanese so the lives of the soldiers and civilians. Well it wasn’t only because of that. Truman was under the pressure of being elected for President and we wanted to look like a good leader in front of his country and make it seems like dropping a bomb twice on the enemy was the best way to get elected for president. It was a sick, twisted and cruel thing to do and I wonder how he slept so peacefully at night.
    Let’s not forget how the Russians were trying to help the U.S defeat the Japanese. They were only trying to do it the proper way, and they thought since Russia is closer to Japan, the invasion and capturing of Japan would be easy. Of course U.S.A agreed to the arrangement but that was only because they were cowardly enough to say ‘No’. Another truth behind why they dropped the bomb was so the War could be over quick and so Russia doesn’t take control of Japan. U.S.A never trusted the Russians.
    Oh but I’m not done yet! The bomb had its effect on the Japanese. To be honest, it was much better being closer to the bomb them being close enough to live through the radiation. The radiation had monstrous effects on the Japanese, effects that weren’t even studied and were completely new to human knowledge. There was this horrible one where people would lose all their white blood cells, which would stop them from healing after a cut, meaning the bleeding would never stop. The next stage is loss of hair. Then comes the yellow skin and horrible fever. Followed by a slow. Fatal. Death.

  • Started Cold War

    When the United States dropped two nuclear bombs on Japan, it started the Cold War with the Soviet Union. The tens of thousands of lives snuffed out by Fat Man and Little Boy will never be replaced and the civilians killed didn't do anything to deserve their suffering. Just like Vietnamese civilians didn't deserve to be napalmed, Japan shouldn't have been bombed. Yes, it might have saved more lives in the long-term. However, nuclear devices set off a chain of events unforeseen by scientists in the culture of fear that persisted for 40 years beyond World War II.

  • But We Didn't Know

    We didn't know the extent of what would happen, but had we we shouldn't have. People often make it sound like we would otherwise have had to do a land invasion. That's not the case. Japan was defeated and they knew it. Their diplomats were already showing signs they were about ready to negotiate for a surrender. Simply blockading Japan with conventional bombing without a land invasion would've lead to a surrender.

  • The U.S. had other options.

    With that being said, it is hard to fairly answer it from the information they had at that time. The truth is, Truman used the bomb to scare off Russia from pursuing its own interest in Asia. It was also used as a way to not negotiate with Japan at all. Japan was ready to surrender but wanted to keep their emperor but we were determined not to give them any of their concessions. Looking back hey kept their emperor after all. The truth behind the bomb is, if we had allowed Russia to keep what Roosevelt had promised him, and allowed the Japanese to keep their emperor would the war have continued past the second bomb.

  • The Bombing Was A Bad Desision

    I think the bombs dropped on Japan was the wrong thing to do. Civilian casualties are always unacceptable and the bombs dropped caused far too much damage. In addition to the outrageous number of non combatants killed and injured the damage done to the environment was uncalled for. There could have been a better way to deal with the issue.

  • NO it was wrong they shouldn't have bombed Japan

    The two bombs were dropped to save American lives, at the time did anyone think of saving the lives of all the innocent people, the children, the babies, probably not. Would it have been the same reaction if the USA had been bombed and that many innocent Americans had died, probably not other countries would have stepped in to help the USA in there millions but that support wasn't there for Japan

  • We shouldnt have

    There were so many innocent kids, even adults that just wanted to keep to themselves. If you look at some pictures, there are dead babies. We were so focused on revenge that we forgot what was really important. So i say that we shouldnt have dropped the bomb on them.
