Reasons For Dropping the Atom Bomb on Japan

Recently a racist idiot on liveleak said he belives one of the reasons for dropping the atom bomb on japan was because they were not white. This is the dumbest reason i have ever heard, He obviously has a issue with the white race. America didnt have a atom bomb until after the germans have surrendered, so this is the reason germany wasent nuked, not because they were white. while there was racism among the american and japanese troops, it was not as wide spread as one would think. There are legitimate reasons why america nukes japan. the nuking of japan killed at most less than 300,000 people, while the japanses killed tens of thousands of non combatants and enslaved women as sex slaves from many asian countrys to be used by the japanese. here is a list of war crimes committed by the japanese during ww2. these are real reasons for dropping the nukes on japan. in my opinion japan had got

  • I dont know if this was in your article but supposedly my wife tells me that during the end the Japanese military was handing out grenades to civilians to use instead of surrendering. Which my wife says Japan is trying to write out of its history.

  • btw the author above is trying to justify slaughtering civilians because of crimes their soldiers committed in the field. What a lame and tired argument.

  • I think the main reason for dropping the bombs is because 200,000 is a far smaller number than the estimated number of deaths if America invaded.

    • I'm sure the urban warfare would have destroyed and displaced many more as well.

      The nukes were not even the worst thing we did to japan anyways. I'm pretty sure the fire bomb raids on tokyo killed more people.

  • The question of whether the bomb was necessary or not began almost as soon as it was dropped and has never been completely settled. But without it, a long bloody battle of mass troop deployment might have been necessary. Others say it was to impress Stalin with U.S power. Damn that was a long post

  • Neothinker is the one that said it -- that we dropped nukes on Japan because they "weren't white."
    Apparently, he is unaware that Japan attacked the U.S. FIRST and would have successfully invaded America. We simply retaliated and put them in their place.

  • K flag wavers, as you celebrate your great victory over the civilians of Japan and start with the " billions and billions of lives saved ' spiel that Truman invented after a year of sanitation so he would feel better about what he did, here's a little something I've complied over the last few months: all these men were in a position to KNOW the facts before, during and after - which is more than any of us can say.

  • I seen a show on the History channel on atomic war...

    some one said the reason was:

    TO SHOW USSR THAT WE HAD THE BALLS TO USE IT...

    to me that makes sense... Japan was already toast.. there fleet was toast... their cities were burning... and we were bombing at will.... it was a live test..

    but a crime like all war is a crime... 300,000 people toast in two raids... and how many deformed..

    • Japan may have been toast on so many levels, but they were nowhere near surrender. The civilians were expected to fight when the allies landed. And fight to the death. If they didn't fight, the local military commander would have them killed immediately. But don't misunderstand me, we didn't know thier resolve until after the war. We were counting on not losing 1 million soldiers and taking a year or more to win. And the way russia was gobbling up eastern europe, I'm sure it was also a way to sh More..

    • Our standard bombs would have done the trick... I would have let China wipe them off the map... Japan was built with wood... it's not very big... the job was within reach without landing any men...

    • You may have a point. Stalin was set to invade Hokkaido but the bomb made him reconsider. If the russians invaded Japan ahead of the Americans then the war in Europe could have re-ignited. Who knows..

    • @InConstantSorrow Yeah there right. America should have invaded and just like the other islands killed 90% of the population, that would have kept 'em happy.

  • Many more Japanese died from the fire bombs over Tokyo than died from the A-Bombs. Not only did the A-Bombs save American lives, they saved many Japanese lives.

  • The A-Bombs killed hundreds of thousands of civilians. That's not justifiable by any means. Enough said.

    • absolutely correct! There were very difficult decisions to be made during that war and for any one to now second guess the decisions of those who had the responsibility shows ignorance of the facts of the issues at the time. As for Canadians, There is a pervasive socialist arrogance that has permeated those who call themselves intellectuals in this country. They seem to think that they have the moral authority to condemn the US and for that matter anyone they choose. They think that they are sur More..

  • I agree with the decision to drop the bombs. War is always terrible and there is always going to be tough decisions to be made.

    Look at what happened at Iwo Jima and Okinawa, those were just small islands and the fighting was fierce and costly. An invasion of Japan would have been a bloodbath of epic proportions. The Japanese fought to the death and their mindset was something that American leaders had never been up against. Good call President Truman...good call.

  • I agree with the decision to bomb Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Japan demonstrated that they were a threat to America. You can't just attack America and then expect a surrender. We are the most powerful nation in the world. If our government acts with good intentions is not even relevent. The fact is, Japan was foolish for attacking Pearl Harbor, they should have known better.

  • The atomic bomb HAD to be dropped on the Japanese for one simple reason:

    THEY WOULDN'T STOP.

    They wouldn't quit fighting and killing for their own conquest.

    PERIOD.

    So, the only solution was to MAKE THEM STOP.

  • Fine list but even outside the realm of specific horrors. The Japanese and Soloman's front in World War Two was very sad and vicious and would have continued far into mainland Japan, for a long time. We were sick of every aspect of war with Japan already and possibly saved lives by dropping Little Boy and Fat Ass. I'm not certain why he waited to drop the second one...idda kept it up until they called and apologized.
