Russia, Germany, Japan and the United States were all working on atomic weapons, whoever got to them first was going to use them. Dr Seuss Cat I Will Drink Monster Energy Here Or There. I’m glad we did, 2 very low yield compared to today’s weapons brought Japan to an unconditional surrender.

Yes they are devastating weapons but it was the right time and place for their use. I’m very familiar with this very dark period of WWII. By all rights it should not have happened but DID happen because the world knew Japan was defeated by this point, though their leaders were in denial. Germany had surrendered as did Italy. Yet the Emperor and military refused to surrender, and the allies understood that prolonging the war would cost more allies lives. Dr Seuss Cat I Will Drink Monster Energy Here Or There. Tragically, despite this massive firebombing described here, even THAT was insufficient to yield a capitulation. Even the first nuke didn’t do it. Think of that. Person is referring to a period. The period of bombardment of Japan that was well into 1945 much after the Germans surrender in May. And I think that is pretty clear in the comment. Japan was done. They were harvesting pine roots to make aviation fuel, and training women to fight with spears to defend the beaches. A blockade would have done it. But it was a deeply racist war, the fighting in the South Pacific had been unbelievably brutal, and we wanted vengeance. We had spent hundreds of millions to develop the bomb, and we needed to use it, to impress the Russians. Japan turn for the better and become a technological power with greater and better humility after the war, since. And it’s so much at peace with the world and the current world orders.
