Bombing stance

Why we HAD to drop the bombs

The United States had no choice on dropping the bombs. the Japanese had a culture were they would never quit fighting until they were killed... and the US warned them that if they did not surrender than they would drop a nuclear bomb on one of there cities. Japan did not surrender and so we dropped it even though we did not want to. Even after one they did not give up so we had to drop another before they FINALLY gave up. with that said...



1.) the ONLY way to stop the fighting with japan was to drop the nuclear bombs

2.) if the bombs were not dropped the US could have potentially been invaded and the war would be on our own soil.

3.) The death tolls for Americans and the Japanese would have ended up being much greater if we had not ended the war like we did
