This was amended and turned into the Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security between the United States and Japan in 1960, which sparked outrage and civil disobedience. The civil obedience of 1960 was massive and was a proof that Japanese were serious about the sovereignty of their country. The resignation of Prime Ministers of Japan is an evidence that democracy was in action in the country and the impact of people was present. When the Security Prime Minister Nobusuke was forced to sign amidst the protests and oppositions against the treaty. Also, In 2006 agreement between Japan and United States governments, it was decided to move MCAS Futenma from Okinawan to Guam, but this decision received little support, and later Hatoyama resigned, stating that he failed to fulfill one of his promises.
Pearl Harbor and the nukes dropped. War is not something you should take lightly. World War two was particularly difficult for the united states of America because they wanted to remain out of the war. Neutral was no longer an option after what japan did. Before that America was on the sidelines just observing and aiding the ally forces.
It was not to end the war. We are often taught that the use of the atomic bomb was necessary to end the war with Japan at the earliest possible moment, but judging by the statements of many high ranking political and military personnel, this is simply not the case. "The Japanese were ready to surrender and it wasn 't necessary to hit them with that awful thing ... I hated to see our country be the first to use such a weapon,"Eisenhower said in 1963. On September 9, 1945, Admiral William F. Halsey, commander of the Third Fleet, was publicly quoted as stating that the atomic bomb was used because the scientists had a “toy and they wanted to try it out…” He further stated that “the first atomic bomb was an unnecessary experiment” and that it was“a mistake to ever drop it.” By all the evidence and information we have above, it shows us that to end the WWII is not really the reason for U.S. to drop that bombs on Japan.
After the atrocities during WWII, Japan gained trust from other nations because of article 9. It was called the “no war clause” because Article 9 prohibits Japan from taking part in military actions overseas and also prohibits Japan forever from maintaining an army, navy and air force. The article only allows Japanese forces to go abroad on international missions such as building roads and monitoring elections but limits them to noncombat roles and prohibits them from carrying live ammunition. Although Article 9 kept Japan free from any wars, it hasn’t always protected the Japanese people. In 1953, Japanese fishermen were shot by Koreans in Japanese territory.
Even though he made this decision as Japanese government did not respond to the Potsdam Declaration, it was still possible to negotiate with Japan’s side without dropping the atomic bombs. In today’s American society, it is considered that his decision to use the atomic bombs enabled the country to save their soldiers. On top of that, Japanese government never raised any protest against the United States for the use of atomic bombs. Nevertheless, as Hasegawa (2005) states, this cannot be longer justified because it is more of a moral issue. More importantly, it is doubtful whether President Truman was sure about the effects of atomic bombs.
The alternative for President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his advisors was doing nothing and letting Nazi Germany develop atomic power and going on to use it to conquer the world. The United States of America wanted to end World War II on both the Atlantic and Pacific fronts and needed the quickest possible method to do so. Franklin D. Roosevelt’s advisors concluded that hundreds of thousands of American lives would be lost on an assault on the island of Japan. The U.S. Armed Forces was over 16,000,000 strong and Franklin D. Roosevelt’s main motive for dropping the atom bombs was to save American lives.5 The fact of the matter is World War II was started by the Axis powers which were Germany, Italy and Japan. The Axis powers alone turned Europe upside down.
Egami goes on to explain that this change was too abrupt to have occurred naturally by the indigenous peoples of Japan because the peaceful and mainly agricultural society of Japan at the time would have no reason to willingly adopt such a grotesque, violent alien culture (Kirkland 110). Thus, Egami concludes that these recent cultural shifts “‘correspond in all respects’ to cultures of conquering continental peoples [... and] the transformation must reflect ‘the subjugation and control of Japan by military force’” (Kirkland
As World War Two was coming to an end, the United States shocked the world with the power of science. Two atomic bombs were dropped on Japan giving a great moral boost to the Americans and the Allies, while also bringing a lot of threat to the outside world. As the countries felt vulnerable to the might of the bomb, the Soviet Union found itself in a hard situation of trying to assert itself as a superpower while also recovering from the war. As Stalin slowly came to power, he gradually became more and more controlling and finally became a dictator. Watching the USSR’s gradual climb to power, the U.S. found it important as the police of the world to keep the USSR in check.
And when we did drop this bomb we made a statement not only to Japan but the world that we are not afraid to do what we have to do to protect our homeland and defeat our enemies. War is not a pretty thing and you don 't worry about other people’s feelings especially when they are the enemy, it needed to be done because we needed to end the war and save our American troops lives and give them what they deserved from Pearl Harbour. • They had warnings. It wasn 't a direct warning that the US was going to bomb, but there was a statement warning telling Japan to surrender while the bomb was still being talked about. Japan didn 't surrender.
The country is keen to sell reactor parts to India but is unable to finalise an agreement as India is a non-signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty. The two Prime Ministers agreed that civil nuclear cooperation was important for both countries and welcomed the significant progress in negotiations on the Agreement for Cooperation in the Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy. The statement said that India and Japan would work to "accelerate" negotiations in this regard to enable a deal as soon as possible. Indo-Japan civil nuclear energy talks were put on ice following the Fukushima disaster in 2011 but Japan agreed to resume discussions last year. Another plus is that the Japanese general public is more warm to a nuclear energy deal with
