The Atomic Bomb in WWII
Should we have dropped them?
Dropping the Atomic bombs Little Boy and Fat Man on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was a necessary act by US forces. In order to save each of our soldiers lives and really lots of the lives with the Japanese inhabitants.
All across the Pacific we had been struggling with the Japanese troops that had no problem supplying their lives for their region. The nearer we got towards the Japanese home islands the harder japan fought. Right up until we reached the island of Okinawa, all of us didn't realize how fanatical the Japanese civilian population was. At Okinawa 21, 000 Japanese civilians fought for the death with the Japanese troops. On average, the Japanese casualties to American casualties were a ratio of approximately 4 to 1. Knowing this kind of, American commanders estimated it would consider 1 million American casualties, just to get a foot hold on the home islands of Asia. If the proportions held being true, that might mean that the Japanese would loose some wherever in the area of four million persons. That means which a total of 5 million people could die simply for the US to get a foothold in Japan. When the two atomic bombs had been dropped, the war with Japan was ended with only a hundred and forty, 000 casualties.
In the last aftermath, I think that the atomic bomb must have been decreased. The difference in casualties pertaining to the invasion compared to the casualties from losing the two atomic bombs, the difference was worth the cost. It ended the war a lot quicker and saved a lot of American and Japanese casualties alike.
