5.06 War Ends
Transcript of 5.06 War Ends
Should the atomic bomb have been used on Japan? Why or why not?
The bomb shouldn't have been dropped on Japan because it killed a lot of innocent people and it was also inhumane. It didn't just target the people involved in the war, it targeted everyone in Japan. When the Japanese got bombed, they had finally noticed that we were serious the first two times about surrendering. They had made sure that we had the upper hand during World War II. Truman thought it would end the war a lot faster, and the Emperor got to keep his "thrown".
What were the reasons the bomb should not have been used on Japan?
What were the reasons the bomb should have been used on Japan?
President Truman thought it was best to get Japan to surrender. Japan had already been given two other chances to surrender, but they were ignored. Bombing both Hiroshima and Nagasaki made them finally surrender. Also, this saved the lives of Americans and sped up the end of the war. When Japan surrendered it saved approximately 100,000 American soldiers and 1,000,000 japanese lives.
