Innocent lives were lost.

   No, because the reason the United States did this was just to intimidate Russia and many, many innocent lives were lost. There were diplomatic options available. The United States remains the only country to have used such a devastating bomb to this day. It was evil and a black mark on the United States.

What proof do you have that it was to intimidate Russia?

Russia was going to fight along side of us. How were we intimidating them?

U.S didn't want the Soviets to be involved with Japan. The atomic bomb ended WWII, but it also started the cold war between U.S and the soviets

War is killing innocent people. Humanity's advance runs on war. It's life.

And it will continue to be thus if we all just go along with it.

MORE INNOCENT lives would have been lost had we invaded instead of bombed.

Don't be naive. Research Operation Cherry Blossoms at Night to see what the Japanese had planned for the USA.

Diplomatic options were not available. All the allied powers agreed they would only accept unconditional surrender, While Japan refused completely until the nuclear bombs were dropped. Before that, They were determined to fight to the death, And only surrendered when the realized the Americans could just destroy Japan with nukes, And that they had no chance of fighting back.
