On first people to invade the U.S.A.

On August 6th,1945, the world was changed forever, the United States of America dropped the first ever atomic bomb on Japan, Hiroshima. Then 3 days later, August 9th,1945, Nagasaki was bombed. I think these atomic bombs were justified because the U.S.A. wanted an unconditional surrender and Japan was not agreeing to the terms of the surrender, the allies would have lost more troops, and Japan were the first people to invade the U.S.A.

            I think the war would have been very different if the U.S. had not joined the war. If the most powerful country in the world at the time didn’t join the Allies, I think the Axis Powers would have claimed all of Europe. But Japan provoked the U.S. into joining the war. The U.S.A. only joined the war because the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. I think they dropped the atomic bombs because the U.S.A. felt that they were attacked for no reason. They felt that the attack wasn’t necessary because the U.S.A. was not part of the war at the time, they had been trading with the Allies and the powers, so they were being fair. I think Japan was just being greedy and wanted to expand and because the U.S.A. were restricting trades with the Japanese, it made the Japanese feel bad. Also, the U.S.A. moved a fleet from California to Pearl Harbor which Japan felt it was a threat but the U.S.A. was not involved at the time, I think they just wanted an excuse to attack the U.S.A. so that can brag that they attacked the most powerful country in the world. Many people say it was also ok that they attacked Pearl Harbor because it was a military target, but at that time, the U.S.A. was not in the war, so they attacked a neutral country. They attacked military people who were not involved in a war. People say when the U.S.A. dropped the bomb, they attacked innocent people but the U.S.A. was also attacked in the exact same way, the U.S.A. just attacked them in the same way.

            The 2 atomic bombs in total costed 90,000-146,00 people their lives. If Operation Downfall (a proposed allied plan for the invasion of Japan in WW2 but was abandoned due to Japan surrendering) was carried out, personnel at the Navy estimated between 1.7-4 million Americans would have been killed and estimated around 10 million Japanese casualties. If the bomb would not have been dropped, you could see another 14 million casualties added to the list of casualties of WW2. I think these numbers are too high but in total, I think if Operation Downfall was activated, 5 million casualties would have happened. The U.S.A. did what was best for both sides, 90,000-146,000 deaths or 10 million casualties. I think it was the right called and might have done a favor for Japan. They indirectly saved a lot of lives by not carrying out this operation.

            I think one of the major reasons the dropping of the atomic bombs was justified because Japan didn’t surrender. I think when the U.S.A. was scared that Japan would keep fighting because Japanese culture is to fight until the end. If that was their mentality and the U.S.A. felt that they would try to attack and the U.S.A. didn’t want men killed so I think it was justified that they dropped the bomb. I think that the U.S. thought that because they thought Japan was asked for unconditional surrender, they said no because they wanted their emperor and if they didn’t get what they wanted, they might try to attack the Allies.

            I think the dropping of the atomic bomb was a very controversial thing to do, but I think the decision they chose was the right one. The U.S. was right because the U.S.A. wanted an unconditional surrender and Japan was not agreeing to the terms of the surrender, the allies would have lost more troops, and Japan were the first people to invade the U.S.A. I think the U.S.A. made the right decision and the bombing was justified.
