Even though dropping the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki killed thousands of Japanese citizens in a matter of seconds, it was still justified. On December 7, 1941, Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, a naval base on one of the Hawaiian Islands, thus plunging the US into the biggest war the world had ever seen. President Harry S. Truman decided to use the atomic bombs to save American lives by not invading Japan. American soldiers were able to return to their wives and children since they did not have to fight in the war any longer. The war ended just six days after the bombs were dropped.
Who has the right to decide who lives and who dies? It has always been a moral debate for centuries. In order to save oneself is it worth the lives of others? Is it better to be a martyr or a murderer. For every soldier saved from the atomic bombs in Japan, how many civilians were lost?
When Japan refused to surrender unconditionally the U.S. decided to nuke them, this was very controversial but looking back the U.S. made the right decision.

If the U.S. didn’t drop the atomic bomb Russia would of taken over Asia and quite possibly Europe. In document E “Mr. Byrnes was much concerned about the spreading of Russian influence in Europe.” The Mr. Byrnes it talks about was then announced Secretary of state 2 weeks after.

Imagine a world where World War 2 took two more years, four million more people died, and the U.S. didn’t drop the atomic bomb. All of this would have happened if we didn’t drop the atomic bomb when we did. The U.S. did the right thing by dropping the bomb because if we didn’t drop it more lives would have been lost, we would have ran out of supplies, and finally Japan attacked the U.S. first with zero warning. Many people think the atomic bomb shouldn’t have been dropped but our group thinks it was necessary to do to save our country. - Ben First, the U.S. should have dropped the bomb on Japan because without the bomb, more lives could have been lost from both sides.

Dre used music as an escape from the tensions and problems of life. He went to house parties and clubs to work the turntables with The World Class Wreckin’ Cru around Los Angeles.

Orwell introduces the topic by stating common thoughts that the common man shares such as how difficult these bombs are to manufacture and how wide the technology has spread. The English essayist transitions to state how massive and expensive weapons give power to few and innovation on a smaller, cheaper scale disperses power to the people. These weapons have developed through the ages, such as the musket during the American and
