I wasn't sure were to put this, so I put it here. For english class I'm doing an essay about if the US should have dropped the A-bomb or not. I just wanted to know your guys' oppinions, and both sides of the story.

Do you go to a public school, just wondering?

I for one think it was a great idea to drop the A bomb on tojo to end WW II. Lupe is a member here and I welcome Lupe to jump in here as he always mentions this event in his posts and when he does it seems hes against it so he might be able to offer a perspective opposite mine.

- Simply put, the US dropped the bomb to win and STOP the war. War is terrible, but we won. Thats a good thing.
- We developed a nuke to win a war not to start a war or blackmail (i.e., N. Korea)
- More lives would have been lost (on both sides) had we chosen to invade Japan and NOT dropped the bomb. (Look around your classroom and many of your schoolmates would not exist simply because their grandfathers would have died fighting the Japanese possibly yourself I am certain I wouldnt be here)
- Think of the consequences of not dropping those nukes. How long until Japan made one of their own? Germany was working on one and sharing information with Japan it could have happened.
- This was an interesting time in history (my favorite history era) - look into WW II history: read about victory gardens, life in Britain, Rosie the Riveter, rationing, etc., and surely you have people to talk to other than us here, more specifically those that are referred to as our greatest generation should be able to offer the most valuable information which you seek go talk to them, now!

The most interesting it's not that the USA had to drop the bomb to stop the war.

It's the fact that the Jap's were so fanatics and crazy, that the USA had had to drop 2 bombs !

I don't think you win wars with war and wars are useless.
And stopping a war by using a thing that can't be defeated is pretty lame. I know, if they had taken over, I don't know where we would stand now, but that doesn't mean we did the right thing. And where do we stand today??

On your side that is.

and right now people are still dying there because of nuclear intoxication caused by it.

That is just the thing. They want things to be their way, we wan't things to be our way, but nor their, nor our way is the right one. And we are way to far evoluated in the Lies, and they've let us produce to many men for their plans that to restart our lives as normal spiritual beings in a healthy world can only happen due to xtreme causes. The surface of this planet is being used with the wrong intentions, for way to long....

Though, maybe they just weren't convinced there were more...

As with many things, there were good results and bad results with dropping the bomb. In the end, I think the end result was a good thing, because it made everyone kind of take a step back and go..."whoa, global conflicts are a bad idea, and now can lead to our own extinction". Because of it, the conflict ceased.

What amazes me, is that we had conflicts even after that.....but at least we haven't used them since, and I think the reason for that is because we saw (and the world saw) the result in Japan, and nobody wants to see that again...

Well everyone wanted the war to be over, because only people who follow hitler like war. So when the european theatre was ended, i think everyone kind of expected japan to surrender. Now sure we want to unleash our baddest new weapon, but i think we expected Japan to give up after the first nuke, and since they didn't, you can blame the japenese for causing us to drop another one due to their stubbernous. and i like what bob88 said about us developing the nuke to stop fighting, not to hold it over weaker countries head so we can manipulate to make them do our will. Those are just my personal opinions..
