On August 6 and 9, 1945 the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed by the first atomic bombs used in warfare. The United States decision to drop an atomic bomb on Hiroshima was strictly military measure calculated to intimidate the Soviet Union in the post-Second-World-War era rather than a strictly diplomatic measure designed to force Japan's unconditional surrender. The three most important reasons to use the atomic bomb were; End War Quickly, Save Lives, and last but not least Revenge. Was dropping the bomb the right choice? We'll never know. All that is knowing is that the atomic bomb ended the war quickly.
World War II ended quickly with the use of the atomic bomb. What's it necessary? According to Mr. Byrnes the bomb wasn't necessary to end the war. In a interview Mr. Byrnes told Mr. Szilards that the president and the government of the United States knew, that Japan was essentially defeated and that the U.S. could've won the war in another six months. (DocF). The Japanese Army only had 5,000,000 men, which meant that the Allies would've the enormous task of destroying the Japanese Army. Instead they used the bomb in order to end the war quickly and save a lot of innocent lives.
241,000 people had been killed, 313,000wounded, and about 2,333,000 homes destroyed by the H.E. ( High Explosive) and incendiary bombs in some 60 cities in Japan. (DocB). Japanese soldiers were willing to fight till the end of the war because they are very loyal to their Emperor. After the atomic bomb was dropped everything ended quick and 68,000 U.S. lives were saved. 26,000 Japanese lives were saved. As simple as that so many people died and yet orders survive The atomic bomb wasn't as dangerous as the firing bombs, according to the numbers more people die because of the firing bombs.
Revenge is never good but yet the U.S. had to get back at Japan for bombing Pearl Harbor. After that everything change. United States decided to test the atomic bomb on Japan or so they say. We won the race of discovery against the Germans. Having found the bomb, we have to use it. We have used it against those who attacked us without warning at Pearl Harbor. (DocH). As mention before Japan was the country that attack Pearl Harbor. The U.S. planed to keep using the bomb until they completely destroy Japan's power to make war. This time revenge saved thousands of innocent people from both sides.
The United States decision to drop an atomic bomb on Hiroshima was strictly military measure calculated to intimidate the Soviet Union in the post-Second-World-War era rather than a strictly diplomatic measure designed to force Japan's unconditional surrender. Ending the war quickly wasn't such a bad idea because a lot of people died before the war ended and more were going to die. Saving lives with the atomic bomb had it's advantages and disadvantages. A lot of people were saved and a lot more died. Revenge was successful for the U.S. at that time but it won't work all the time. Dropping the atomic bomb on Hiroshima was not the best option but it ended the war before it got worse.
