If you think about it, it was almost like revenge for the Pearl Harbor. If he didn 't drop the bomb people could 've looked at it by the war would go on much longer and more U.S soldiers would 've died. If you think of it over all, it could 've been necessary for America and it wasn 't to necessary for the Japan 's. The main reason for the atomic bomb was to get revenge. I personally don 't believe in revenge.
The relevance of the two atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki was that it ended World War II, which is the main goal of the any war so yes, it was necessary. The two bombs dropped mightconvince the Japanese any further resistance was futile, which worked. After the bombings, there were rumors of Japanese ready to surrender the next few day which claimed to make the two bombings “unnecessary”. The generally accepted view that the Japanese would fight to the very end put that rumor at a very small percentage. The Japanese also wanted their current emperor to remain on throne and they were afraid that the surrendering terms would cause the Japanese to choose a new Emperor.
What would have happened had the A-bomb not been used? The most obvious answer is that he war would have continued. U.S. forces therefore would have had to invade the home island of Japan. It is hard to imagine the number of additional casualties we would have incurred had a Japanese land war been necessary. Also, our forces would not only have to fend off the Japanese military, but they would also be defending themselves against the civilian peoples of Japan as well.
I think that if the demand for unconditional surrender had been amended, the Japanese would have surrendered earlier, probably at least after the first atomic bomb was dropped. I don 't think they would have waited after the bomb was dropped if they had the option to keep their emperor. I think that if the surrender was offered and it still failed, a single atomic bomb would have been justified to save the lives of more Americans, but the second atomic bomb being dropped three days after the first one was not justified. The Japanese were barely given any time to react. I think our national perspective on this event has changed slightly since it happened.
Truman was justified to drop the Atomic bombs because of the situation at hand, but it is arguable because he had several alternatives. Right after America declared war on Japan, Germany had also declared war on the United States. Thereby, causing a dilemma for the United States nation as a whole. If the US didn't finish the war with Japan quickly they would have trouble backing up the allied powers. However, Truman could have found another way to defeat Japan with a less violent tactic.
If that had happened, they could have avoided the attack and saved thousands of lives, and Japan would have surrendered anyways. Obviously, if the bombings weren't necessary to win the war, then bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki was wrong. War is fought by soldiers and not by killing innocent civilians. Even if the bomb dropped on Hiroshima was to pressure Japan to surrender, there was no need to drop a second one on Nagasaki. The dropping of the atomic bomb on Nagasaki and Hiroshima in 1945 by the Americans is a very controversial issue with no definite answer.
He or she should care more for the in depth analytical studies done by experts who know best as to why America should or should not have dropped the atomic bomb. As more and more evidence has been presented to researchers, expert opinion on whether or not the United States should have dropped the two atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki has also changed. More and more researchers seem to feel that the atomic bomb should never have been used (Alperovitz 16). Despite several officials’ claims to enormous death estimations, an invasion of Japan would have cost fewer total lives. In addition, post atomic bomb repercussions that occurred, such as the Arms Race, were far too great a price to pay for the two atomic drops.
The Nazi Party would have no longer had any power in Germany after the successful coup. The modified Operation Valkyrie was just a code word for a coup d’etat of the Nazi party. The plan was for the German army in Berlin to seize power and secure their districts. Once Hitler was Even though Germany was very committed to World War II, Operation Valkyrie would have altered the course of the war, had it been successful. Had Operation Valkyrie been successful Germany could have made peace agreements with the Western Allies, and the war would have been over before they got completely destroyed.
The cartoon, also, depicts the Japanese trying to bring down the Americans; the Japanese would want to challenge America because they were occupying territories close to the Japanese empire. Japan felt threatened by America and was trying to show America who was the superior country, which is why the atomic bomb was necessary to get Japan to surrender. The atomic bomb inevitably ended the war with Japan; without the atomic bomb the war could’ve persisted much longer and caused more casualties. By 1945 America and Britain needed a swift victory because they’d been at war with several nations in Europe... ... middle of paper ... ...d them to end the war with Japan. But not only did they create bombs, but they also found a new way to power the spreading cities of America.
I believe in the justification for using the Nuclear weapon was that it ended the war and saved thousands more American and Japanese lives. However, some say that the bomb was really dropped to prove to the Soviet Union how powerful the USA was. This has caused much debate but the valid intention is unknown. To oppose this, historians have now obtained evidence that it is possible Japan were on the verge of surrender, so the Atomic bomb was therefore not necessary. "We thought we would be able to defeat the Americans on their first landing attack.
