Many people have looked back at the Second World War and wondered whether or not the bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were ever warranted or called for. Both incidents were known for massive destruction and loss of life. Do you think it was necessary, or was it simply too much?

In addition, you can talk about any general topic pertaining to the 2nd world war in this thread. Please keep the discussion civil, and make sure you explain your views well, and don't just drop a statement without backing it up, either with reason or references.

“Hiroshima does not look like a bombed city.
It looks as if a monster steamroller has passed over it and squashed it out of existence.

I think the Bombing was neccesary. I am half japanese and 4th generation american. Without it America would have had to invade Japan and they were ready to fight to the death. Even after both bombings the Japanese generals tried to kidnap the emperor so that he couldnt surrender.

Also Russia had just defeated Germany and was swinging its forces over to attack japan. If we hadnt nuked Japan into a quick surrender then Russia would be claiming part of Japan was theirs and Japan would be split like Germany was. We would then have to reunite and rebuild half of Japan later, like we had to with Germany and the Berlin wall. Also I dont think the partition of Japan would have been as peacefull as the German one. I think that the pressures of the Cold War would have boiled over and Russia and US would duke it out in Japan.

As much as i hate the fact that innocent people were vaporized by the nuke. I think that you cant argue with the results. I mean there is a chance that we would never have Anime, or manga! Ahhhh!
