The atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki killed millions of people, left families with nothing, and leveled cities. The war would have gone on for a couple more years if we had not dropped the bombs and sent troops to Japan instead. The atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was justified. This is one of the pros for the atomic bombing on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. One of the pros for dropping the atom bombs is that the Japanese would have not surrendered.
This is a really hard argument because if you attack the enemy army which is attacking you, you have to think about the deaths of your own men. Since bombings where so unaccurate they might have missed and hit themselfs. But if you do attack factories you can slow down the production of weapons. The attack on Japan was not acceptable. The U.S did not have to kill millions of innocent civillians just to make Japan surreneder.
Together, the two bombs eventually killed an estimated 200,000 Japanese civilians. From a glance, the deed was plain brutal and ruthless but examining fully, the decision to drop the bomb saved many lives indirectly, both American and Japanese, and helped put an end to a horrific war. One of the main purposes of the atomic bomb was to prevent American casualties in the war. Although successful, invasion of Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa islands proved to be costly. Many American soldiers had sacrificed their valuable lives fighting.
Necessity of the bomb lies with the amount of people that would have been killed in a land invasion, although it was vastly exaggerated. If next generation were raised on the path the Japanese were taking, they would grow up to become monsters. it saved many American Soldiers lives by stopping a land invasion of Japan and prisoners of war were being abused. But the Atomic bomb used against Japan was not necessary to end the war considering the numbers of American lives saved was vastly exaggerated, They were sending their battleships and pilots out on suicide missions as they were desperate, there was a vengeance for pearl harbour and racism towards the Japanese people, many victims of the bomb were civilians that had nothing to do with the war, the only reason Japanese weren’t surrendering is because they didn’t want to give up there emperor to the “unconditional surrender” and to demonstrate their power over the world. The bombing of Hiroshima was necessary to end the war as it would save many lives as suggests in source A “should adopt a position that rather than throw to this bomb we should have sacrificed a million American and a quarter of a million British live”.
Hitler, Stalin, and the Bomb Hitler and Stalin both share the dubious distinction of being two of the most destructive figures throughout all of history. The atrocities committed between the two of them against innocent people runs up into the millions. With Hitler, his rage was derived from his disdain to any Jewish person around believe that they truly were inferior to him. Stalin had a deep fear of people rising up against him and killed a mass amount of his own people just to suppress that fear that the people in his country might soon rebel against him. During the time period in which their reigns each occurred, nuclear science was starting to make some of its biggest discoveries in history.
Three days later, another atom bomb was dropped on Nagasaki. It is estimated that between 150,000 and 250,000 people were killed as a result of the bombings. However, once the Japanese government witnessed the destructive power of the bombs, they had no choice but to surrender. Had the bombs not been used, the war would have gone on for much longer.
Another was the Zeppelin air raids. That was the first time that there were casualties away from the battlefields. This time, the ones who died were the civilians, the innocent women and children who were killed for the sole purpose of reducing morale. The second reason was that the whole world wanted to avoid a repetition of the first world war. One way of achieving this was by stripping Germany of its abilities to strike again.
The Bombing of Dresden took place between 13 February and 14 February 1945 by the British Royal Air Force (RAF) and the United States Air Force. Only twelve weeks after the bombing Nazi Germany, surrendered. This bombing of Dresden was one of the most brutal and most controversial bombings in World War II, because Dresden was a very charming cultural place of little or no military importance and the city was also known as the "Florence on the Elbe“. Recent research suggests that 35,000 were killed but some German sources have said that it was over 100,000 people who died in the heavy bombing. The bombing was tactically necessary from the Allied point of view.
On August 5, 1945, the United States dropped the first atomic bomb in military history on Hiroshima. Three days later, they dropped a second atomic bomb on Nagasaki before Japan could respond to the extent of the devastation. This played a key role in ending World War II, but resulted in the killings of over 200,000 Japanese civilians (eHistory). This historical event is still a decision that is often debated on moral grounds today. However, there are some philosophies and schools of thought which, when applied to the issue, are more likely to lead one to gain a more thorough understanding of why the action was unethical and should not have been committed.
Another example of this is Adolf Hitler during World War II. He had ambition for power as well as making Germany free of Jews, whom he saw as the enemy. He order millions of Jews to put into concentration camps and many of them died as a result. Because of Hitler’s ambition, millions of Jews died. A third example could be The United States as a country and the war we’re in with Iraq.
