Well considering that they know there will be a need for killing long into the future( see "life" it destroys and devours other life) I understand
the need for weapons of all scales. Somtimes you need to kill a lot of people to savve a lot more.
The japenese would not have given up, forcing a land invasion, which would have resulted in millions of deaths not a few hundred thousand. The
japanese were acting quite empirial at the time, claim as much repeatedly, as they stated poblically that they were a great people that deserved an
empire to rule over. As they invaded china, siam,the phillippines... finally attacking us at peral harbor.
Some always say, "we forced them into a corner" however I disagree, they could have stopped bullying their neighbors at any time, and they
wouldn't have gotten crippling sanctions put on them. They wanted war and conquest, they got war and conquered.
The facts are clear, we used the A bomb two times, and savved millions of lives, and finally brought the worst war in the history of mankind to a
close. I think that this is not a bad thing but a good thing. Yes we played with dads gun and people got hurt, but that was long ago and most alive
today know nothing of this but the stories. We have though learned the lesson, as evidenced by the fact they have never been used once since. I think
we are growing up fast in a big universe, we seem to be doing alright though.
