World War II introduced the most dangerous weapon in the world, the atomic bomb. When the US used it on Japan we went to far and caused unnecessary damage to the people. Many people believe this to the only truth but, the real truth is that dropping the atomic bomb was a necessary evil we had to use in order to win the war in World War II and future wars to come. It save many american soldiers lives, stopped the Soviets from joining, and helped us win against Japan. First and foremost, World War II caused many casualties for both sides of the war.
War is immoral. War is cruel.” After the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, according to the tables shown on document E a total of 135,000 died at Hiroshima and a total of 64,000 died at Nagasaki and most of the deaths were cause by burns, very little from falling debris and flying glass. These 2 documents show how much havoc the atomic bombs caused and the effects it had which caused a total of 199,000 casualties to die from the bombing and making Japan surrender so they won’t risk another bombing and many more casualties to
In America’s opinion, Japan had lost the war; they did not have any capital to negotiate with. Japan had to accept unconditional surrender; if they disagreed with that request, America would drop the bomb. What made the Japanese surrender was the retention of their emperor; anything else couldn’t have forced a Japanese surrender, including the attack of the atomic bomb. As Japan's Prime Minister Suzuki spelled out on June 9, 1945. “Should the Emperor system be abolished, they [the Japanese people] would lose all reason for existence….
(History in Hiroshima) The meeting between them is very marked by the recriminations and the great suspicions between the Americans and the Soviets. The large Russian armies that were occupying most of Eastern Europe. “Truman and many of his advisers hoped that the United States atomic monopoly might offer diplomatic leverage with the Soviets.”(WWII Part 4) In this way, the explosion of the atomic bomb in Japan can be seen as the first of many shots of the Cold War. (The Hiroshima Bombing) If all US officials really believed that they could use their great atomic monopoly to gain more diplomatic advantage, they had very little time to put their plan into action and do it successfully. In 1949, the Soviets had developed their own atomic bomb and began the nuclear arms
Japan wanted to attack Pearl Harbor because it was afraid the US would be able to attack from the Pacific. The United States after the attack started making these JapaneseAmerican Internment Camps which destroyed a lot of families and was unfair in my opinion. Later America decided to use an atomic bomb to end the war with Japan. Japan and the united states had a problem when Japan had taken over a place called Manchuria which was a part of China. Japan had tried to take over the rest of China as well in 1937, but that didn't end up working.
It 's a good thing we bombed when we did though because Russia was getting involved and other countries would 've joined and made the war worse. Where Japan didn 't get a warning about the bomb, they weren 't prepared and neither were the other countries so there was a better chance of nothing happening in return and nothing did. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were chosen, not the entire country. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were hit on target pretty well. Not all the Japanese were a target as well, just the military.
The bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki devastated the people of these cities. This, however, ended the conflict between the U.S. and Japan, but was it a good idea for the U.S.? Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed, and over one-hundred fifty thousand people were killed in the atomic bombings of Japan. The bombings by the United States were necessary because Japan was a powerful adversary that the United States needed to overcome in order to defeat Germany. They had started World War Two and put the Jewish people and gypsies and people they deemed not good enough for society in concentration camps.
Even more anger formed from the fact that japanese prison camps were notoriously cruel to the prisoners incarcerated therein. Some results from America 's involvement in the war were the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the loss of 407,300 American soldiers. With that many americans dying America wanted the war to come to an immediate end, the solution was the atomic bomb. America created a total of three of the bombs one for a test firing the other two were used on two different cities in Japan, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, killing 225,000
This stunning assault brought about the deaths of 2400 Americans, with about 1200 harmed, around 200 aircraft vehicles pulverized, and various ship vessels, warships, and destroyers sunk or harmed. Japanese losses included 64 dead from perilous kamikaze assaults. The goal of the assault on Pearl Harbor was to retain Japan's progression into Singapore and the Dutch East Indies as the US maritime armada would be disabled and unable to
This statement affirms the fact that even if the atomic bombs were not dropped, and a land invasion had taken place instead, the battle would not have been easily fought. Aside from the hostility of the Japanese, the war was almost over, and dropping the atomic bombs expedited the prolonging of the war. The planned operation, titled ‘Downfall,’ would have taken many years and the estimated casualties of “a half-million American lives” (O’Neal). Based on the estimation, which excludes an added number of casualties, it was necessary to drop the bombs. Lastly, the Manhattan project was rather expensive, and Japan’s persistent honor and barbarism justified using the bomb’s destructive
