First off, not disagree with the decisions of the president to drop atomic bombs in Nagasaki, Hiroshima. The reason why I disagree with the atomic weapons that were drawn in japan is because there were thousand of people who were killed, innocent peoples who died in that bomb drops. there were military men who died, but at the same time is was acceptable for united states to fight, and win the war. United states were discomforted the lost thousand of people, including military, 48,000 people from the united states, military, and innocent peoples. It was grave that the united states had thousands of life that are why they proposed the attack besides japan. As well the united states were fighting for their people and their country, losing people, was military the same way Japan was losing their people, and fighting for other and same purposes. But otherwise it was necessary to drop the bombs on Japan and in other terms it was very wrong, they were many innocent people killed in that attack and it opened the whole new arms race around the world. But at one point united states didn 't raise the bombs was dropped on humans, is wise an experiment. There were killed 120,000 innocent people, united states didn 't target the Japanese government because was all the fault and …show more content…
Particularly Thousands of people died in both countries. The United States killed much more peoples in Japan, more than japan did. Japan was more scared of Russia would have no qualms about to kill Hirohito. The bomb was already created, there was only left to taste the bomb, but the bomb was needed to be used on anyone, and since Germany was out of the war, the most logic pace to use the bomb would be in Japan. The bombs were finally dropped in japan because at that time white Americans were racist, they didn 't consider the yellow japan as humans.It was not necessary japan to bomb country Hiroshima because that country didn 't do anything to the united states. all those people were innocent

If the bombs were not dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the United States would have lost at least one million American soldiers in a mainland invasion of Japan (Tucker, 5). That stated, dropping the bombs was the only viable option for sparing both American lives, as well as Japanese lives. The dropping of the bombs, albeit horrific, is justifiable because it saved millions of both American and Japanese lives, prevented the waste of valuable resources, and played a significant role in Japan's surrender. Dropping the bombs saved more lives than if the United States had done a land invasion (Walker, 5). If the war had been prolonged, the United States would have lost millions of lives (Tucker, 5); but the Japanese would also suffer.
Also, a lot of people died in both the bombing of NAgasaki and Hiroshima. A chart shows that 135,000 people either died or were injured somehow, and at Nagasaki 64,000 people were killed or injured, proving that there is no way every single one of those people hurt were military. Therefore, the bomb was an awful solution to an almost solved
The doubts about the U.S. decision in 1945 have been discussed, analyzed, and there are still many controversies. In August 1945, the U.S. decided to use both of its two atomic bombs on Japan to end the war between them during WWII. The atomic bomb has killed about 200,000 people in the Japanese community and brought destruction to the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Even though the bomb had terminated the war by Japan surrendering, there were many who were against the action of using the bomb. The reason behind that perspective is that many innocent people have died, and Japan was near surrendering, so there was no need for a major event.
Therefore knowing how the Japanese soldiers think about surrendering, the millions of lives saved by ending the war quickly and shortly, and the countless warnings given to the Japanese, I think dropping the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki was warranted and
It is Japan, early morning, August 6th 1945. Japan has just been bombed by America. After evaluating whether or not dropping the bomb was right or wrong, it is obvious that the U.S. destroyed Japan out of malicious intent and anger toward the Japanese, but this gave America no right to drop the bomb on innocent civilians. America had also destroyed big parts of their industry and economy with their incendiary bombs, but Japan refused to surrender or show any sign of weakness. Many experts have argued that dropping the bomb was unethical and wrong.
It 's challenging to look back at events and understand the logic of using an atomic bomb without allowing one scrap of knowledge to creep into our decision making. All of this being said, it 's still possible to come to the conclusion that using this weapon was wrong. The belief that a military blockade would end the war wasn 't believed any more than a military blockade without invasion of Germany would work. The notion that Japan was teetering on surrender is silly.
Should the U.S. have dropped the atomic bombs on Japan? Some people believe that the U.S. should not have dropped the atomic bombs on Japan, while others believe that the U.S. did the right thing by dropping the bombs. One thing both sides should agree upon is that the atomic bombs dropped on Japan ended the war faster than it would have if the U.S. did not drop the bombs. The atomic bombing on Japan was necessary for the war to end because it stopped the fighting and additional casualties that would have occurred if the war had not ended. The U.S. did the right thing by dropping the atomic bombs because they prevented the additional casualties that would have occurred.
A treacherous race of terror started soon after the decision was materialized. Some critics are of the opinion that Japanese were ready to surrender and that the decision of dropping atomic bombs was utterly pointless. Militarists view it as discrimination on the basis of ethnicity as no such violent act has ever been committed against white people. On the other hand, the diplomats of America had clandestine objectives. In order to contain the Soviets, the atomic bomb was used to deliver a message that they should not underestimate the Americans, who are capable of defending themselves and can go to any extent in order to preserve their sovereignty.
Different perspectives on the US decision to drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II are how immoral it was to do. In Document 4 from 1945, it states, “This is a crime against God and humanity which strikes at the very basis of moral existence,” The author explains how heinous the idea of dropping the bomb was. Any one with morals would be against such thing because of the destruction one bomb can make and how it can annihilate anything in its path. It was pure cruelty to drop a bomb that powerful on any one, it wasn’t war or murder it would be consider nihilism because of destruction that occurred. Another perspective was of a GI soldier, in Document 5 and how the bomb was a relief to soldiers and their family.
In the twentieth century, the United States dropped two atomic bombs, which were the most powerful weapons at that time, on Japan. It happened on August 6 and August 9, 1945. The atomic bombs killed 226,000 Japanese and ended the war. However, America should not have dropped the atomic bombs for two reasons. First, it was not necessary to drop the bomb to win the war militarily or to get the Japanese to surrender.
President Truman and his associates believed that if they dropped the bomb they would receive surrender from Japan. Thus, saving millions of American lives, and ending the war. Nevertheless, by saving American lives they would sacrifice thousands of Japanese civilians. They had other idea to have Japan to surrender, but were willing to take the one that would have the most consequences. They were thinking too much about the US instead of creating actually peace within the nations.
Japan was already going to surrender, but they wanted surrender terms that they would find acceptable (Walker). They had problems within their country such as starvation. Britain and the United States had knowledge that when Russia entered the war, they were close to accepting surrender terms (Alperovitz). One might argue the bomb was unnecessary and we should have waited a longer amount of time to give Japan time to make their decision. The United States rushed the droppings of the two bombs on August 6th and 9th (Alperovitz).
Again, the Japanese had no knowledge of the bombs, causing even more devastating casualties. People have argued over the years if the atomic bombing was justified or not, and multiple points can be made on both arguments, yet I take it that the bombing on Hiroshima and Nagasaki was not justified. Keep in
Daniella Gat GlobalA 1 U.S actions during the Cold War were not justified. It has probably happened many times in life when you take actions and someone gets mad or doesn 't agree. Then you must come up with any reason possible to make it justified, but sometimes not everything can be justified. For example, a person murdering a random person they have never met before and do not know, can’t be justified. The actions that the U.S took during the Cold War are similar to this, as they weren’t always justified.
The dropping of the atomic bombs on World War II on the city of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was a very important part of World War II. The atomic bomb ended the war between America and Japan. This was just one of the important events during the battle in World War II. The Battle at Pearl Harbor, where the Japanese attacked U.S. soil was also why the americans bombed Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Some believe that the United States was correct in dropping these bombs on Japan because of the attack on Pearl Harbor while others believe that it was very wrong to dropped the bomb.
