Was The Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki Necessary?
I think the bombing of Hiroshima was necessary, even though there were so many things wrong with it. I can't stand the idea because of all the innocent casualties, but it was sadly necessary. Japan didn't surrender for 3 days after the first bomb, therefore the Allies had to drop another bomb on Nagasaki. The Japanese didn't surrender until 6 DAYS after the second attack because of the threat of a third bombing! If the Allies never dropped those bombs, Japan wouldn't have quit, and would keep going and going and going. Sadly those bombs were entirely necessary, if they were not dropped, the war could have played out very differently.
