The Japanese would not stop. They were taking territories in the Pacific left and right, and brutally. The entire nation was ready to die for the honor of the Emperor. The first bomb just pissed them off more, but also made some of them think a little. The second bomb finally stopped them. There's notes from the time in which US officials noted that the second bomb was a gamble -- we only had two bombs and if the second didn't work we had no plan "b".

IOW: we could be fighting Islam in the name of the Emperor.

Are you high? They tried to surrender, but we only let them until after we dropped the bombs.

But I don't give a shit. We were just flexing our muscles to get the Russians to shit their pants.

The nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki prevented "Operation Downfall", a massive ally invasion of Japan that would have resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people and would have worsened the war. Operation Downfall was D-Day on steroids. The attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were basically a moral imperative to prevent further death.

Yes it was, but not to subdue the Japanese but to send a warning signal to Josef Stalin and the Soviet Union.

Given the shit that happened in Europe, Japan just needed to be dealt with because everyone was tired of war at that point.

>>591461651
i think we could have not dropped them on their cities and done bombing raids an airstrikes easily enough and won by doing the same damage and not making their cities unlivable for decades to come, however, that was a flex for the US. we are now a super power because of that and other nations are afraid of us which is good and bad. It was needed but it definitely ended it sooner that the other options and we have gotten more of a name for ourselves do to that and the cold war. so its good and bad, but no we didnt have to do it, we just wanted(needed) to in order to make our country better. makes a good story though. and also this is an old test video not the fimliming of the drop. they didnt film it... they couldnt during the mission, it was top secret.

>>591463283

Downfall was a unilateral plan by the US with something like 500,000 estimated US casualties alone. massive civilian casualties in a sustained conflict would surely dwarf the numbers lost in the two bombings
>>
It was either the bombs or an invasion of Japan, the bombs death toll would be little compared to an invasion.
>>
we could of done a land invasion but millions would of died on both sides

the nukes basically were to scare them into submission, normal bombing raids arent as ascary as having one bomb wipe a city out, and it only left land uninhabitable for a few years
>>
>>591461651
They did it because they're cunts.

The first is not even justifiable, but comes close to it. No matter how many bullshit excuses the US came up with, it was an evil and horrid thing to do.

The second one was a fucking war crime. Everybody involved should have been put to death, as they only dropped it as a science experiment. Japan was already in the motions of surrender when they fucking dropped it and they knew.

Just another example of America being the shittest country in the world, one of the most disgusting massacres in history to date
>>
Yes, the Japanese were losing, but the nuke was necessary because the Japanese were programmed to not stop fighting.
Also the fuckers deserved it becuse of all the atrocities committed to is soldiers.
>>
>>591461651
Yeah it was. Considering the war needed to be done with.

Plus, the Japanese pride is strong. They needed a good sucker punch to keep them down.

If you've the weapons to defeat, use them. No matter how bad the outcome could result.

wrong. They could have dropped a bomb in the ocean/countryside to show what they were capable of.

America jumped in at the end of both wars.

The first one was all Britain, the 2nd was all Britain and Russia. America did next to nothing. That is, except force Japan into the war by putting trade embargoes on the entire country.
>>
>>591464492
actually even with the 2nd atomic bomb only like 50% of the generals wanted to surrender, only until like a finance minister urged them to stop due to how crippling any more bombs would of been did they finally decide to surrender

it was the US had taken countless casualties in the island hopping warfare they had been doing. Those were smaller islands and the Japanese refused to surrender. Since that was the case a full scale invasion of the main island would have lost a lot of american lives. They used the bomb so that american lives wouldn't be lost and to show the rest of the world (USSR) what they had.

>>
>>591461651

>Being this naive

To give you an idea of how many casualties invading the mainland of Japan would have required, every single purple heart medal awarded since WW2 was produced in preparation for the invasion.

An invasion would have cost hundreds of thousands, if not millions of lives. It would have likely made the Japanese civilian population suffer even more deaths than those two bombings, as we would have continued to bomb their cities (think Dresden, etc).

...and that's without even considering the Bushido code and the suicide attacks civilians would have likely been forced to take part in.

Brittany got their ass kicked left and right in ww1 by the Germans.
The US joined in 1941, just after the world war became "world wide" and beat the Japanese single handedly. Also brought down the Germans with the help of the Russians.
Britain was inconsequential both times.
The UK still technically owes the us war debts
>>
Basically the US could have either dropped the bombs or fight through a nation willing to die and lose half a million more soldiers (estimated by a U.S. general) or take out Japan and crush it's resistance while at the same time discouraging attacks from Russia and preventing the spread of communism to Japan.

The Japanese had made it quite clear that the US would have to genocide the Japanese in order to force them to surrender.

Doing that manually would have cost a lot of American lives so they picked the easy way out. Genocide was inevitable, whether it was gonna cost American lives was the questions. On top of that, manual genocide would have prolonged the war, and in every single scenario: Longer war = worse war. Even for the Japanese, who likely would have thrown even more of their lives away due to a faint hope of victory or at least an honorable death. Nuking them was to send a soul crushing message, that no, you will not make a defiant last stand, no you will not die honorably, no you cannot win, yes you will surrender or be annihilated. Further more, the decision maker had the choice between saving an estimated several 100.000 of his countrymen's lives or try to spare an enemy that even at that point had earned themselves a reputation and a bunch of war criminals and psychos. That is not a hard choice.

The Japs were the ones who waited around for a second nuke before quitting even though they knew they had lost before the first bomb.

>>
>>591461651
This is simply one of those scenarios where no one wins at all. It was a choice between hundreds of thousands of people dying and millions of people dying.

I've thought about it a lot, and I can't really say which one I'd choose. Looking back, it must have been one of the hardest decisions President Truman has ever had to make. I often wonder if President Roosevelt would have gone through with the bombing if he had survived all the way through the war. I've seen pictures of the devastation left by the two bombs, and it's nightmarish. No one should ever have go suffer that much. No one.

How do you choose between killing hundreds of thousands of people and sending millions of soldiers to their deaths to invade a country where the soldiers would fight tooth and nail for every inch of land? It was an impossible choice. I can't even say that it was the lesser of two evils.

In the end though, the bombing did save millions of lives. It was a gamble, as another anon pointed out, because we did not have the resources to make a third bomb for a very long time. If I remember correctly, it would have taken many months, maybe even a year or more to have any more bombs ready to use. If the Japanese didn't surrender after we dropped the second one, we would impaled ourselves on our own sword, having to send our soldiers into a country where their hatred of them had just increased hundred-fold. Not to mention the fact that at some point we'd have had to send troops into areas possibly irradiated, which would mean even more horrible deaths.

When it comes right down to it, it seems like a simple choice. Looking more closely, it isn't so black and white. If the bombs had simply killed those people, I'd be inclined to say that it was the right thing to do. No suffering, no long lasting effects, no radiation. But the side effects make me and a lot of other people stop twice and think.

Most feats of technology are just there to let the enemy know how smart and capable you are. NASA springs to mind.

From what I understand the US used the bombs to end the war quickly, before he Soviets could grab more land.


What I don't understand is why the US didn't detonate the bombs off the japanese coast. I guess that's because the US only had a few bombs in 1945 and that they were unsure if they would even work!

They would have never surrendered if we didn't nuke them, dropping the bomb saved more lives on both sides in the long run.
Now fuck off with your shitty bait you humongous faggot.

Hahaha you so know Americans treated the Japanese survivors better than Japan, hell most of the survivors were ostracized shortly after because they thought they would die from being near them

It wasn't until very recently that the Japanese government even gave a shit about them

bro they nuked one city; killed 100,000 people in a second and asked them to surrender

they said no

so they nuked another one and acted like they had more

dropping one off the coast would have done exactly jack shit

THAT is how you know it saved millions of American lives

WE HAD TO NUKE THEM TWICE, they were never going to surrender a land war, every able bodied person would have fought to the end

Did the Japanese have to torture people in unit 743?

The only country to use nukes is the usa. Thats one big stain.
Any none american can see its a terrible thing to do.. Most yanks are shit yeah about it
>>
Well the Americans also dropped leaflets saying the locations of the bombings in Japanese, and to evacuate. They just had to get rid of the war factories.
>>
>>591470023
Actually, bomb number 3 would have been ready for dropping the 19th of August and has Tokyo written all over it.
>>
>>591470338

that is not true it would have taken months to get number 3 ready
>>
>>591470338
That would of been awesome to see. Just saying
>>
It ended up saving far more lives than the alternative. The Japanese were completely FANATICAL. They would have dug in and fought tooth and nail for every square metre. They had started handing out weapons to school children to defend their homeland with their lives. The only way was to fully demolish their will. Destroy any notion of them fighting back. It was awful and horrific, but it was probably the best outcome. Millions would have died on all sides if they had kept up the fight.

tokyo had been firebombed about 50 times by then and was in ruins

they picked cities that had not been heavily bombed yet so the japs could see the power of a single bomb
>>
>>591470198
>that's one big stain

Like Americans give a shit, it's war. It's not like America was neutral with Japan and just went "lol lets test nuke on those chinks for fun"

Actually that's probably what they said.
>>
If the Japs hadn't surrendered after the 2nd bomb, Truman would've dropped a third on Tokyo and was down to drop even more.

You're the reason this country is going down the shitter you white apologist fuck

Fucking end yourself you waste of space.

I just read about this, the survivor's were basically treated as demons or someone with a highly contagious disease and were for a long time viewed as non Japanese people because of the burns
>>
>>591470198
I'm Danish, and thanks to actually bothering to learn the history of the whole episode know they did the reasonable thing.

Was it a terrible thing to do? Yes, but the alternative was worse. Worse for America and worse for Japan. But in that situation, worse for America was reason enough.

Start shit, get shit. Refuse to stop when told to stop, get more shit. Fuck, the Japanese would have done worse to the Americans had they won.

i wonder what the grandfathers of these hikikomori shut in anime fags think of their kids today
>>
>>591470741

Exactly. Just look at the Casualty rates on IWO Jima, Peleliu, Guadalcanal, Okinawa, etc. They fought almost to the last man, taking well over 90% casualties each time.

Those are not the statistics of someone who surrenders. In fact, I'm not sure if such consistent, fanatical devotion has appeared anywhere else in history... but I must admit I lack the spectrum of knowledge to say for certain.

Regardless, it is both disgusting and admirable.

they were raping an pillaging in China,

the USA won and kindly rebuilt japan into a technical modern society free of charge and bought every walkman and honda they could churn out

they were going to enslave anyone they beat...

>They could have dropped a warning bomb miles from a city. The japs are not stupid. It was murder and a war crime. And a stain on usa history

considering that they did not give up after being given the chance AFTER nuking one city....

that's not true

History is written by the victors. It was most definatly a shitty thing to do. Burning civillians instantly is a shitty thing to do.

The entire population would have died for their Emperor. It's difficult to imagine just how much they would have done. They would never be beaten through attrition. Not before a long, bloody decade of pointless death.
