And how about japanese emperor to apologize to lead its peoples to the ww2 hell?

Yes, bombing a city will always be in the human history a shame, but, how many more peoples could have died if the yankees invaded Japan with conventionnel weapon?

When you analyse the sino/usa battle in the pacific, you see why japanese lost: always the same reason: arrogance, refuse to realize the truth, and prefer die rather than surrender.

I think USA and Japan government should apologize to civilian to these atrocities.  But remember USA was not involved in the ww2 until pearl harbor attack.

Yes. Obama should apologize. Why do you think he is GOING to Hiroshima! It should be a straightforward, unconditional apology. He should not present the many valid excuses. Others - like me can do that. In my opinion, dropping the 2 bombs was right. 1. Only way to end WW II FAST. 2. Meant LESS total casualties on both sides. 3. Warned the Russians. 4. Let everyone SEE how bad nukes are.
What's on your mind...

This thread was done years ago, I think when I first joined this BBS.

Militarily, these bombs being used was necessary. They stopped a projected US casualty list of around 1 million. They also stopped a Japanese civilian casualty list of many times more than that of the US.

Morally, dropping these bombs was wrong but in saying this, none had ever been dropped during hostilities before and the cumulative effects weren't known.

I think it is a topic we can talk about for ever. Hostilities causes conflict, and conflict makes war. It goes circularly.
