    The reason why the United States won the war was cause of dropping the Atomic Bombs. For the Us was a victory,but for japan was a destruction not only in material destruction but even civilian life. I think the was a bad decision dropping the mortal atomic bombs.

    Hideki Tojo pride wasn’t worth all the lives that were lost. Read a comment that and I couldn’t agree more “It was done to create peace by creating fear”, it’s sad that it took two bombs for Japan to decide to surrender. Great article by the way!

    Although we won the war there was quite a lot of collateral left after the war. Many people choose to look over the fact that thousands of innocent people died because they mainly look at the fact that we won and that’s enough for them. I personally don’t agree with the method that was used to win the war although I understand why Truman chose to drop the atomic bombs instead of sending in more soldiers. Either choice would not have truly been a win for anybody, in whatever scenario many innocent people would have died maybe less people in one scenario rather than the other. And that’s just the savage center of the war that cannot be undone.

    I enjoyed the connections that were put together this was a vivid article and the atomic bomb was a good strategy for the win of our country. We showed Japan,Nagasaki, and Hiroshima that we had a higher advantage and they deserved it because their behavior was reckless. P.S Hitler was a savage, smh.

    I believe it is not humane to drop bombs and kill millions of people eventhogth they are harming other people. does killing people that kill other convert us into murders too. I love the idea on trying to get rid of those who harm for pleasure, but dropping bombs and kill innocent people is debastating. Kids babys that might be different race and color, but just came into this earth to suffer the atomic bomb devastation. It is horrible!

    I really enjoyed reading this article, but the sad part many innocent people who not involved in the war died. also,that bomb stopped the war which saved many solders and innocent people in both sides.

    The atomic bomb simbolized the victory of one but the many lost of others. It was a good idea to bomb Hiroshima and Nagasaki because we showed Japan that we are for more advanced then they are. We showed them that we are a super power who will not show weakness but strentgh throughout all battles. Nobody wants to drop bombs onn each other because there is always a huge lost, but as long as everybody continues to fight and create battes/wars with each other, this world will never truly be in peace.

    The drop of the Atomic bomb was a historic event in history, science, and politics. This day gave a new prespective into mankind and just how awful it can be. The atomic bomb was apart of a domino effect starting from WW1. The atomic bomb droppings were another thing that showed how badly humans treat each other and how much sacrifice is required to achieve something greater then just winning a war. It was done to create peace by creating fear.

    that was a very radical idea to use the atomic bomb to end the war quickly. I agree it did end the war quickly but at what cost the effect of the atomic bomb were not totally known and effected many generations
