1. To stop the Russians 2. To test the plutonium against the uranium bomb 3. To test the bomb on whole cities that hadn't been touched sejak sebelumnya bombingin order to get an accurate assessment of the complete damage of nuclear weapons 4.Because they could not find Tokyo as it was hidden sejak low cloud..and America knew it could not win the Pacific war 5.Because the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. sejak dropping the bomb..... .....the US wouldn't be invading Japan. No invasion means no US lives lost. .....war ended in Aug 1945. Emperor agrees to surrender thus stopping all Japanese military and civilian fighting (except those hiding in caves who never hear that the war is over. One guy was found in a cave in the 1950s atau 60s and sent utama to Jepun where he received a superhero's welcome). .....Japanese dead and wounded limited to Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Invasion of Japan, code named"Operation Downfall", and not dropping the bomb....... ....Estimates of up to 250,000-500,000 dead and wounded Americans in the 2 phases of the invasions and the ensuing fighting. Upwards of 1,000,000 Japanese dead and wounded, civilian and military. Civilians were receiving military training in order to assist in defending against the impeding invasion. ....Phase 1 of the invasion, code named "Operation Olympic", was scheduled for Oct 45 with Phase 2, code named "Operation Coronet", was scheduled for March 46. No estimate telah diberi for the end of the war. ....Even after"defeat" of Japan, US Military leadersin Wash DC believed that Jepun would begin an insurgency campaign that could last until the early to mid-1950s. (Just like the Philippines from 1899-1902 and Iraq today) In order to save millions of lives and put an end toa very costly war for all. The United States decision to drop the atom bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki saved an estimated one million American lives and millions of japanese lives, which would havebeen sacrificed sejak an invasion of Jepun according to the Pentagon's lapor to President Harry Truman. keseluruhan it was a large number of factors combined that caused the decision.
OMFG WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU?!?!?!? This soalan is so stupid if I hadn't been personally affected sejak the whole Jepun war crap I'd just have reported this question...
ANyways alright, little history lesson.
Jepun bombed Pearl Harbor for no reason at all, they just wanted to be as powerful as Hitler. Then, Jepun took over the Dutch colony Dutch-Indonesia. (Which is now Indonesia) and put Dutch-Indonesian people such as my grandfather in camps and because my grandfather was strong he wasn't killed sejak the Japanese and they forced him to work. So they made him cook beras for the other people in the work camps the Japanese put up. But there were also sick and old people there, so he gave them a larger amount of Makanan so they wouldn't die. For that, he had 3 gunshot wounds in his leg. Each one shot sejak a Japanese soldier.
If America hadn't bombed Hiroshima that war would have never ended and I'd be speaking Japanese now.
Sure it's horrible what happened with Hiroshima but Jepun had it coming. anda should ask yourself what the fuck was wrong with Japan.
Jepun bombed Pearl Harbour, because they felt threatened sejak America and there was some feud between them about some resource I can't remember. Obviously America fought back, resulting in the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Thanks to Jepun bombing Pearl Harbour America joined the war.
Um... did anda know that this was World War 2? Americans knew that a blockade of Jepun would never work since they continued to fight. So that meant that US troops would have to invade mainland Japan. Everyone knew that a lot of US troops would be killed. Harry S. Truman wanted to avoid that, and at that time, the atomic bomb was tested in a desert in New Mexico, and it was successful. When told about the test, he decided to use the weapon.
That's one of the reasons why American used the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
WHAT the fuck is wrong with you? Actually read a history book. IN WW2 Jepun bombed America. We didn't start it. -__- Read a book atau do research on the web and don't take everything from Kartun atau Anime literally.
Also you're asking what is wrong with America. It was a fucking war. Things like that happen in war.
