Americans and the atomic bombings on Japan

In the year of 1945 America began creating atomic bombs in secret. By July of 1945 they dropped the first atomic bomb in New Mexico as a tester and it was a success. Soon later the US dropped a bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki 3 days later. These bombs killed a total of 62 million civilians that didn't need to die. The after affects of the bomb was radiation poisoning that slowly killed people throughout a few years, as well as a possibility of a million of Americas own soldiers being killed when invading Japan.  In my opinion they should not have dropped the bomb at all. They got too enraged with Japan killing thousands of their soldiers and went way to far with bombings and millions of innocent people being killed. 

The photo shows how large and horrible this bomb was and it also shows how wide and high  the explosion was, which proves how many people were killed from the massive atomic bombs dropped into Japan. 
Overall I think that dropping the bombs at all was a huge mistake and should have been avoided, because of all the deaths and poisoned innocent people. 


  1. I agree that the bombs should not have been dropped. How do you feel the situation should have been handled?

  2. Courtney, why are you against the use of the nuclear weapons? How do you think the situation should have been handled?
