"Should the United States dropped the bomb on Japan? "

  • Sadly, Yes. But never again.

    At the time of the bomb drop, Japan was a major threat. They had already shown that they weren't going to surrender as easily as the Germans had. Yes, The damage caused to those cities was irreparable, But many other cities in the world could have suffered similar consequences. However, The power of that weapon should never have been handed to the military so early, And we as a human race should never have to submit to level of cruelty and aggression ever again.

  • It saved millions of lives.

    Japan was ready to fight to the last man. Only the systematic destruction of it's resources hastened surrender. The invasion, If it were to have happened would have killed 3 million Japanese and up to one million allies. You can read about it in Richard Rhodes book. . . . THe Making of the Atom Bomb.

  • Operation Downfall Could've Happened

    During the Imperial expansion, Japan was an unstoppable Warmachine, That conquered, Raped, And pillaged its way throughout Asia all for the "greater Asian prosperity sphere". In an alternative timeline where the United States never dropped the bombs, Operation Downfall could've taken place, Which would've resulted in more Japanese lives lost than necessary. If you think about it, The nuclear bomb saved many lives, But at the same time destroyed many as well. There was no other option, And the United States tried again and again to get the Japanese to surrender before they would drop the bomb. So this action was completely justifiable and I invite those who disagree for a debate.

  • It was a necessary action

    First off there is no good or bad in war, The very nature of war makes it impossible to be a good action. So without attempting to attach good or bad and looking at it in a practical sense it was the right action. The Japanese believed in death before dishonor and as such were willing to fight to the last man. Viewing the US as a foreign power rather than our country it makes sense to drop the bomb and save your own countrymen.

  • United States committed an act of terrorism.

    97% of casualties in Pearl Harbor were military personnel.
    99% of casualties in Nagasaki were civilian.
    70%+ casualties in Hiroshima were civilian.

    One is judged by his actions, Not words. These facts speak for themselves. To respond to military attack with an act of terrorism, Makes american people into terrorists, And not just the government, But also the taxpayers who sponsored those bombs.

  • Mass murder for nothing

    14 year old boy with squeaky voice: "There was no Other choice American soldier would have died! "

    They murdered women and children that had nothing to do with the war. That bomb killed more civilians than soldiers.
    Even the man who dropped the bomb regretted doing it.
    You are just reading American propaganda.
    And yes Japanese soldiers raped women but you know who else raped women? American soldiers.
    I would rather raping American soldier die killing raping Japanese solider than cowards to just attack cities.
    Remember that next time you become collateral.

  • No. There were ulterior motives.

    Many aspects over the justification of the atomic bombs include the orthodox perspective which is held by many American based historians who believe the utilisation of the bombs were justified because of the possible US casualties that could have occurred if it wasn’t for the bombs. On the other hand, Revisionist perspectives demonstrate the counter argument that the usage of atomic bombs was unjustified and it was merely a way to intimidate the Soviet Union. Moreover, These weapons had never been used before and its destructive power, Especially the effect of the radiation fall-out after, Was greatly unknown. Many articles and books do not compare to the mass effect it had on civilian lives however to this day with many new perspectives arising it is clear that killing innocent lives is an unnecessary means of ending the war.
