Japan surrendered six days after the second bombings which was a fast surrender and saved American lives.
Person disagreeing- 150,000-246,000 people were killed during the two atomic bomb droppings. Many of those were innocent children, women, and old people considering most of the men were in the war fighting.
Truman and several other war generals said it was unnecessary to use such lethal force when the Japanese had basically already surrendered.
The audience can apply this to their life when making a decision that could effect others in the process. They have to look at both sides on which would be the best option that would hurt less people and still benefit yourself.
