During WWII there were many deaths and terrible battles but the worst of all of them was America dropping the Atomic Bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This tactic of bombing a city was the wrong decision by America, it was completely barbaric and was an act of total war something no country should ever use. The main issues with this decision was that it wasn’t an attack on a military base like Pearl Harbor but it was an attack on a populated city and Japan was prepared to surrender because they knew America and the Allied Powers would win the war. The main argument others have is that the Atomic bomb saved lives by creating a fast end to the war so it wouldn’t be strung out resulting in more deaths on both sides but Japan was prepared to surrender
Logan Thompson 3rd Hour 3/7/16 The Atomic Bomb When the atomic bomb was dropped the world was changed forever. The Americans dropped the first atomic bomb on the japanese city of Hiroshima and it killed lots people immediately and tens of thousands later from all the radiation. Then after three days there was a second atomic bomb dropped on the city of Nagasaki which killed less but still lots of people. Finally a few day later the Japanese surrendered.
Daisaku Ikeda said “Japan learned from the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki that the tragedy wrought by nuclear weapons must never be repeated and that humanity and nuclear weapons cannot exist.” The United States ended World War II by bombing Japan which caused radiation damage and devastation to all of Japan. The United States had three main reasons why they dropped the atomic bomb in such a rush. They wanted to limit American casualties from fighting future battles. The United States wanted to establish dominance over the war before Russia could join in. Lately they wanted to see what kind of damage it would really do what what the aftermath would be like. In fact the atomic bombs used in World War II against Japan were the only atomic
The atomic bombing in Hiroshima is a historical, forever-reigning mystery to the Japanese. We can learn from our past by thinking before we make a decision that could impact the life of others and by helping each other in a time of need to come together. By thinking before we make a life-changing decision, we could save many future lives. For example, when America made the decision to drop a nuclear bomb on Japan, they had put no thought into how the power and devastation of the nuclear destruction would impact so many innocent lives, young and old.
This was an experiment, the bomb was never used before and it could’ve been worse too. What if Japan decided to bomb us? Or attack us somewhere sometime else? What if Russia and the other countries got involved in the war? More of our
In New York Times article “First Atomic Bomb Dropped on Japan,” written by Sidney Shalett announces America dropped the first made atomic bomb in Hiroshima, Japan. This news has brought the world to chaos by the weapon that the United States invented to bring destruction to another country. This weapon of the United States called an atomic bomb, has wiped out everything in Hiroshima to nothing. The author of this article, Shalett, captures the effective of the bomb as “an immense steel tower has been “vaporized” by the tremendous explosion.” When the author uses the word “vaporized” to describe the power that atomic bomb hold, this word tell atomic bomb can make think to disperse by the time it went explode.
The bombing attacks resulted in 225,000 total casualties, and destruction of both cities. Even though dropping the atomic bombs destroyed both Japanese cities, President Truman’s decision to drop the bomb was justified, because it saved both American and Japanese lives, ended the war quickly, and established the United States as a superpower. In the same fashion
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.
Some people survived the bomb by pure chance like by “[throwing] [themselves] between two large rocks” (Heresy 835) to save themselves. Conventional bombs were more destructive to cities because they started fires and it was not just one and done. The conventional bombing methods killed more people than the atomic bomb. The bomb also saved millions of American lives by avoiding a land invasion. The bomb also helped end the war also saving the lives of soldiers from other countries.
Kids and others frightened at the sights they saw when the blackness rose, skin burned off, people holding an organ, and many other frightening things. Was the dropping the bomb in both Hiroshima and Nagasaki justified? Do others believe it was a good idea? The correct answer is we don’t know. Just like many other political statements, millions disagree on this topic.
People rode their bikes, pushed wagons, walked and rode their boats down the river. They all had an idea something was going to happen from hearing about it on the radio and all the talk around town. Not knowing the exact time something was going to happen was horrifying for the people all over. The nuclear bomb that hit Hiroshima not only destroyed the environment but also destroyed the lives of both the people killed and the survivors that lost so much that day. As the bomb went off, the beautiful city of Hiroshima was destroyed within seconds.
The United States and Japan fought in World War II during 1941 to 1945. Japan planned to expand their land and gain resources- which led them to invade China whom was an ally of the U.S. In result, the United States cut off the supply of oil to Japan. On December 7th 1941, Japan’s air force did a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor because that is where their military base is located. Afterwards, the United States declared war on Japan, and joined allies against the axis powers. The United States’ use of the atomic bombs is justified because it saved American lives; Japan was given fair warning, and their aggressions towards the U.S.
