Yes, we should have!

   We dropped the bomb because the Japanese were ruthless jerks who dropped bombs on us first. They destroyed our ships making it to where we couldn't ship as much and defend ourselves. They tore apart Pearl Harbor so much that they could have invaded there and took over and they were sad they didn't. It was only fair that we bomb them in return. It may have killed hundreds but they killed our people, too!

Technically americans killed a few million due to atomic fallout after the following years, and again to disease caused by radiation (however, im positive the americans had no idea about fallout etc, considering the amount of american soldiers they affected during the tests of the atomic bomb, i disagree with the use of the bomb on cities, but hey, war is war, thats what happens.)

Oh no Pearl Harbour- the Americans lost a couple ships and 2 cats died. That's what it's like relative to the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

How could u say that ^^^^^^ what happened if u were in your pj's eating breakfast in the mess halls only to realize that that will be your last meal. Yes we did loose only a couple thousand of our troops compared to the a-Bombs on Japan but that still didn't make it okay. Japan got what they deserved. We did what they did to us, but stronger. The bombed us without warning. They had a chance to surrender but they didn't. They brought it among themselves

Hiroshima and Nagasaki were industrial centers, used to produce weapons, it was an effort to cripple their production so they couldn't keep attacking. Also we used nukes as a method of intimidation. From what I heard from an unreliable source we said "surrender or we will annihilate you." They refused so we dropped a nuke. We then said "surrender or we will annihilate you.". They refused, so we dropped a second nuke. At this point we were out of nukes, but one more surrender beckon and they gave in.T would be like having someone punch you in the face, then you just stand there and let them keep punching. Thats just not the way America does things. Never has been, never will be.

Therefore, it is the reason why you can pollute others land for 100+ years?

Remember that rule from when you were younger...I think it went something like two wrongs don't make a right. Americans should take note!

Yes @kittythefabulous please, soldiers know that the job they do carries high risk. Its not "fair" to murder CIVILIANS. Your argument makes no sense as it would be "fair" if Japanese soldiers were killed. This is an entire city dude. Not a mere harbour.

The Japanese civilians were kamikaze and if they saw a American soldier they probably would have shot him and walked away
Logicplease says2016-01-19T08:07:28.273
@chaserod i don't think you understand what kamikaze is
HeavenlyPanda says2016-07-15T21:25:32.930
We may have only killed hundreds. Hahaha, really? No it's " we may have killed many thousands. "

Although I support the bomb dropping, I do not agree with your reasoning. Vengeance is NEVER a good reason for ANYTHING.

Chaserod, You CLEARLY do not know what the Kamikaze was.
