A nuke was the answer to Americans?!?!



And don't act like Americans didn't do some crazy shit to prevent Japs from invading. Thousands of Japs in America were sent into camps for months.
The Japs didn't want to accept defeat.
The A-Bombs were the only thing that stood between us and millions(no hundreds of thousands, but millions) of deaths on both sides.

Even after the bombs were dropped, the night before the Emperor of Japan officially surrendered, there was a coup attempted by a general, to try and over throw the emperor and send a radio broadcast enouraging every single Jap man, woman, and child to take up arms and fight the Americans.

3,000,000 Soldiers/Civilians is more of a cost than 145,000 civilians. If we invaded some of us might not be here (Like PiEman [Damn!]). We did what we had to do. We sacrificed the lesser amount for the same effect.

They were all part of the war. They supported the empeor. They worshiped him as a God. They all swore to fight to the Death. Racial extinction was preferable to them over surrender.

Zaki, I like you, for the most part. But I just have to say this.
Go find a decent proctologist, and ask him to go looking for your head.
We OFFERED to settle for negotiations. MULTIPLE TIMES. Each time, Japan told us to go engage in a procreative anatomical impossibility.
We told them that we were going to nuke them unless they surrendered. This IS, of course, after all the firebombings, which is one of the most psychologically damaging thing you can do to the Japanese. They STILL refused.
We bombed them once.
They refused to negotiate.
We bombed them AGAIN.
They came to the table.

Now, had we gone ahead and INVADED, ALL of those so-called innocent people would have died anyways, because they would have taken up arms against Allied soldiers. Not just Americans, but Australians, Russians, and possibly Koreans. Each side would have lost MILLIONS.
And this is somehow more ACCEPTABLE to you?

Well, maybe your priorities are screwed up. After all, we have our countrymen fighting and dying so you guys don't revert to control of warlords or Taliban types, and yet you blame them for the bloodshed.

I find this somewhat ironic, when you're actually fighting on the side of the people that drove planes into the twin towers for little reason other than hatred. It was the bomb, or a seemingly never-ending war filled with hundreds of thousands of deaths on both sides and followed by a debt heavier than Obama's new car.

You're evading the question, Zaki.
It doesn't matter how bad the nuking of Hiroshima was. The alternatives were even worse. And there is absolutely no comparison between Hiroshima and 9-11.

Hell, technically speaking, the Japanese didn't surrender even after the second bomb. We then flew every single plane we had over Tokyo (under the pretense that each was armed with the same weapon), and with the Russians preparing to invade, they finally surrendered. We tried every recourse other than invading, which would have killed many more on both sides, so I don't see what the problem here is.

And as I said before, most Japs weren't even going to surrender by that point.

Zaki obviously doesn't know anything about the bombing of Japan other than the information found in a sixth grade history book.


All he thinks is that we went over and bombed them with two atom bombs for no real reason other than we could and that the Japanese were innocent even though they were committing GENOCIDE.



Japanese citizens may have been killed, but that happens in a war. How best to stop the country then to hit them where it hurts the most?

Do you think they would have shown us any mercy if THEY had invaded US?

Spelling is your friend.

And he made more decisions than you'll ever know. Have you ever stopped to wonder why presidents come out of a four-year term looking like they're in their eighties and nineties?

Also, you guys forget to mention that back then, little value was placed on the lives of enemy civillians.

They were considered targets aswell up until the 60s.

Not true. When you have a war going on, the media doesn't tend to focus on the little things the president does.

And you both fail to mention that the implementation of the Atomic Bomb saved the lives of MILLIONS of Japanese civilians. Had we not used them, we would have had to invade, costing huge amounts of both innocent Japanese and American soldier lives. The use of the atomic bombs was the lesser of two evils, and while it may seem like an atrocity, you'll find that it was a well made, bold decision.

...Has no one heard of the Japanese projects to infect fleas with the bubonic plague and drop them over Major US cities?

Or the infamous Unit 731 of the Japanese Army?

The actions the Japanese were prepared to perform against the US, and did perform against our soldiers are so much worse than dropping two atomic bombs onto cities.

They were also making a Death Ray.

Seriously, they had constructed and even tested a microwave weapon, that basically cooked soldiers from the inside.

They tested on several animals, and it is heavily implied that they also tested on humans.

I don't really care for the lives of enemy combatants which is what they would be if had invaded.


I beleive I had mentioned that we would be saving lives, though I don't think I specifically said Japanese lives.

I had not heard of those projects actually.





Since we did drop the bombs look what has happened. Instead of being the mindless, evil, genocidal savages that they more than likely would have remained, look at them now.

Do you think they would have been better off as they were?
