At the Supreme War Council the Emperor of Japan agreed to the surrender of Japan. The statement by the council read: “The Japanese Government is ready to accept the terms enumerated in the tripartite joint declaration which was issued on the 26th of last month, with the understanding that the said declaration does not compromise any demand which prejudice the status of the Emperor under national laws.” As a result, the Second World War was over. If it wasn’t for the use of the atomic bombs, there is a chance that the war could have continued on because the Japanese were not willing to give up. Also, thousands if not millions more lives could have been lost. Since the Japanese were willing to inflict the most harm possible, the war may have lasted several more years.
During the second World War (1939-1945) two atomic bombs were dropped on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan, it is debatable whether or not these bombs were the appropriate response. I believe that this was the appropriate response because of the horrible crimes the Japanese committed against Americans as well as innocent people during the Rape of Nanking, the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and the Bataan Death march, also, the two bombs were the final factors in ending the war, as well as the atomic bombs were the first bomb of their kind, this put the Americans in a position of undeniable power. Without these bombs, the war would’ve only progressed and left behind more casualties and destruction. The Japanese committed horrible crimes against innocent
One of the most influential scientists of his century, Albert Einstein, will forever be the cause of nuclear warfare. It is hard to predict that a successful scientist could be responsible for millions of deaths. Despite having the best intentions, Einstein prompted the United State’s race to nuclear arms. With his signature on a letter warning the United States of Germany’s false progression of their atomic research influenced the government 's decision to create an atomic bomb which would be used later to destroy a japanese city, resulting in millions of deaths. Due to Albert Einstein 's fear for the safety of the United States, he prompted the destruction of other nations.
Intro/Thesis: The news we hear today about nuclear weapons, ranging from the Iran Nuclear Deal to the North Korean bomb tests all stem from the secret project led by the United States during World War 2. The Manhattan Project, which started in 1942 lasting until 1946, saw the creation of two atomic bombs which would explode in Japan, ending World War 2 but more importantly changing the world forever (“Manhattan Project”). As the death tolls continued to climb upwards during the World War 2, so did the significance and urgency of the project. Since the day when the bomb ‘Little Boy’ and ‘Fat Man’ fell towards Japan, the end it put on World War 2, the destruction it wreaked, the role it has in international politics, and its contribution to science
Destroy, by definition, is to reduce [an object] to a useless state as by rending, burning or dissolving and to injure beyond repair (Dictionary.com) In August of 1945 two B-29 bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The President of the United States at the time, Harry S. Truman made the choice to drop the bombs in hopes of ending WWII. The bomb dropped on Hiroshima was dropped on August 6th 1945 and the bomb dropped on Nagasaki was dropped three days following. The bombs greatly impacted the course of the War and the future of the threat of the atomic bomb in wars. It played a part in WWII ending around a month later.
The United States´ President Harry S. Truman authorized the launch of the atomic bombs on the cities Hiroshima and Nagasaki, ending with the life of almost 214.000 people, civilians mostly. However, it is analyzed the necessity of those actions starting of the hypothesis of what was right; therefore, a questionable point of view emerges. USA should not have launched atomic bombs because they caused an unnecessary damage, dead people, damage to the environment and diseases to the citizens.
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.
At the end of the war, devastating bombs were dropped on the two unsuspecting cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. As a result of these bombings, many lives were lost, but ultimately many lives ended up being saved. “To drop the atomic bombs on the Japanese cities as the only way to avoid a full-scale
This statement affirms the fact that even if the atomic bombs were not dropped, and a land invasion had taken place instead, the battle would not have been easily fought. Aside from the hostility of the Japanese, the war was almost over, and dropping the atomic bombs expedited the prolonging of the war. The planned operation, titled ‘Downfall,’ would have taken many years and the estimated casualties of “a half-million American lives” (O’Neal). Based on the estimation, which excludes an added number of casualties, it was necessary to drop the bombs. Lastly, the Manhattan project was rather expensive, and Japan’s persistent honor and barbarism justified using the bomb’s destructive
[ Suzuki, T. (2004). "Why was the A-bomb dropped on hiroshima?". Peace Research, 36(2), 87-IV. Retrieved from https://search.proquest.com/docview/213486608?accountid=45721 （Accessed March, 25, 2017)] The dropping of atomic bombs,which ended the Pacific War,was necessarily inevitable and crucial. The Japanese Army was still very hard to be defeated and they had killed a huge amount of US soldiers.
On August 6, 1945 Enola Gay dropped the first bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima then 3 days later another one was dropped on Nagasaki. A reason I have for supporting the bombing is that it stopped the War in which could have caused another Depression. If Japan would have stopped sooner we might not have need
