109 Words1 Page
I believe that the bombing of Japan was an over the top choice by the Americans. This way of bombing the Japanese was very inhumane, and left thousands dead. The A-bomb was extremely inhumane, there were a number of other options that the americans could have used, instead of bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Some might think that the A-bomb saved america, but it destroyed Japan. They didn’t realize how much the A-bomb would affect the people and the whole country of Japan, the 20,000 kilojoule bomb killed 140,000 people within the months that followed. This devastated Japan and eventually led to the end of the war, with America winning.
