Obviously use it. It was the thing to do, throw the biggest thing you can at the enemy. It ensured an unconditional surrender. Invading Japan would have taken at least another year, and the soldiers were fanatical and wouldnt surrender.

The firebombing raids that were occurring over Japan were hardly a good alternative to what was happening here. Pilots were complaining about their entire underside of their plane smelling like human flesh, most vomiting or losing consciousness when realising why.

The nukes might not have been good for Japan, but they were offered surrender after all of these firebomb raids occurred and refused. Far more people died to firebomb raids already, plenty more would continue to die if the theatre involved marine assaults and it was only getting worse.

If bombs killing a lot of people was going to cause them to surrender, why didn't they surrender after the fire bombing of Tokyo? Or after the first atomic bomb, for that matter?

They were, of course publically they had a no surrender attitude but privately they knew the were fucked and the wanted a conditional surrender. They wanted the soviets to mediate their surrender and when the soviets invaded Manchuria their only option was gone, they had no choice but to surrender.

Even if the bombs contributed towards Japan's surrender which is debatable, they still weren't justified because they specifically targeted innocents. The Americans knew that shitloads od innocent people were going to die and they did it anyway.

>The actual rulers of Japan in the spring and summer of 1945 were the ''big six'' members of the powerful Supreme Council for the Direction of the War, or SCDW.

>They included seventy-eight-year-old Baron Kantaro Suzuki, a retired admiral and a hero of the Russo-Japanese war who had taken office as Japan's new premier on April 7. Suzuki privately favored peace, but, as premier he was little more than a puppet of the warlords.....Foreign Minister Shigenori Togo was also a peace advocate, but he was kept silent by fear of reprisals from the militants.

I don't think you know this but in WW2 precision bombing was not a thing.
To get the military bases in both hiroshima and nagasaki we would have had to carpet bomb the cities to insure their destruction.
Innocents would have been killed regardless, if we were targeting innocents with the bombs we would have bombed Tokyo (which were busy getting fire bombed but no one ever complains about that.)

The Japanese were like the Muslims of that era who began a horrific Jihad to take over all of Asia. It's so easy to pass judgment when you take everything out of context but it was a 100% justifiable decision at the time, reflected by the fact that when polled something like 92% of Americans said the atomic bombing was a good thing in 1950. Even now you can't say it was 100% wrong unless you ignore all of the facts and the Japanese mindset/wider world picture at the time. Soviet Japan would have sucked and knowing the Japanese and how obsessed they get with things, probably would have seen more Japanese dead than the nukes combined anyway.

But this Canadian would defend ISIS taking over the Middle East, then launching an invasion of Europe to rape and murder little European babies, and then get so buttflustered when the Europeans nuke Mecca in return.

Don't even need to kill many people. The nukes showed that the Allies had the power to wipe every nip off the face of the earth with far less effort than a traditional invasion. Even the most fanatical warlord is gonna realise he doesn't have a chance at that point.

Where is your manufactured outrage for the Allied carpet bombings in Germany, the German bombings of London, the Nazi treatment of Russians during occupation, the Japanese rape of Nanking, the Japanese biological experiments on Chinese, the fire bombing of Tokyo, etc, etc, etc.

A lot of shitty things happened in WW2 that were just as bad as this and people like you are silent. There was no possible scenario for invading Japan that did not involve shit tons of civilians dying or suffering on top of the military casualties.

Okay, then we should have made sure even more non-combatants indirectly died from starvation/firebombing and the Soviet/US/Chinese invasion and aftermath, because if millions of more of them die while defending Japan/die indirectly due to the consequences of the invasions, that is so much better than them losing a few hundred thousand.

I don't think war is okay. Who thinks people dying en masse is okay, ever. We're discussing this in context, not from a self-righteous moral high ground. We get it, you don't like people dying, that's cool. In the context of WW2, this was wholly, incontrovertibly, indubitably justified.

You work at a factory pumping out weapons, vehicles, etc. that go towards killing Americans, while living in a city surrounded by installations that shoot down Americans, and keep your gun shined and ready to kill Americans after they land on your shore, you get big spooky bomb dropped on you, the end

>Japan wasn't the evil conquering power any more than the European colonial empires were

Yeah, I kind of missed the part where the French and British conducted medical experiments on helpless restrained colonials and raped and murdered millions of colonials for fun in government-sanctioned and encouraged genocide programs. If you can provide evidence proving that both the British/French did things equally as bad as the Japanese, go ahead and produce your proofs.

Totally agree, but he actually took soldiers from a country that wasn't his (since we were actually our own army in WW2), didn't inform Curtin about what he was doing, and used those ANZAC soldiers to fight under him. That's why he's a dick.

>you shouldn't talk about this, because something arguably worse once happened
Uh huh.

The reason people debate the necessity of the atomic bombs and their role in influencing the Japanese surrender is because there is evidence on both sides and people hold a range of different views. Ever since it happened it has been argued about by people including historians and academics (all of whom are, apparently, 'angsty teenagers').
No one is saying that these are the worst events that have ever happened in human history. The fact that more people died in another situation does not mean that no one should ever talk about this.
If you're going to ignore someone's opinion purely on the basis that they're talking about the atomic bombings instead of other events, why the fuck are you even reading a thread about the atomic bombings?

He didn't. He basically had his generals lie to Australian soldiers who were fighting in North Africa and told them to relocate to France to fight on the Western Front, Curtin only had a few forces return to Australia to fight in the Pacific and thought that was all of them. That's why it was a big deal a few years ago when we found Australian regiments who died in France.

No regret because it was the best thing.

What else was there to do? The atom bombs killed the least amount of people possible and ended war faster than any other means. Prove me wrong and I'll reconsider. Was it sad? Yes. Was it wrong? In terms of how murder is wrong? Sure. Was it the best outcome of a shitty situation? Yes.

The thing that I've never understood is how people from other countries act like the US should have done something different, like there was a better way. Then they try to say that we only bombed them because we're a horrible country that likes killing people. That's the part that pisses me off and I don't understand it at all. Give me one better alternative. People would have been killed no matter what happened. What's the difference between being killed by an invading army, or a nuclear bomb? At the end of the day, none.

It was literally brainwashed into them, unless you can link me some sources that say otherwise. But if not, it would seem that the only other option was to invade, but that would just kill even more people, both Japanese and Americans + any Allied soldiers who would've also likely have taken part in an invasion.

The worst I could think of is the fire bombing or Dresden. You guys had Nanking, Bataan death march, the Burma railways, countless human rights violations, unit 731, and just general savagery.

A strong part of any good war department is having a propaganda department to dehumanize the enemy. A dehumanized enemy is easier to hate. Japan I now it's been 70 years but go back to how to wage war 101.

By this point they were trying to surrender, but only on certain conditions. The allies, particularly the US, refused to accept any conditions.

Anyway, what exactly do you think you're saying here? Obviously you're wrong in saying they would 'never' surrender, because they did surrender. You cannot possibly dispute the fact that they would have surrendered in the face of unbeatable odds, because that is exactly what they did.
You're meant to be arguing that one particular factor rather than another is what caused them to surrender unconditionally. Simply saying that they would never surrender, does not make any sense at all.

Keep in mind that there had been bombings with even larger numbers of casualties previously, and this didn't cause them to surrender unconditionally. The Russians breaking the non-aggression treaty and attacking Japanese forces, however, was unexpected and clearly demonstrated that Japan had no chance whatsoever of defending its home islands if the war continued.

I won't defend it because it was a horrible and unjustifiable war crime.

>>35173211

I meant that they would never surrender unless they were invaded/bombed/lost huge of amounts of life at home. But I'm curious what were these conditions that the Japanese were apparently wanting to surrender by? I would still like some sources too.

Reminder that Americans are the villains and Japs are cucks.

Not him but

http://www.fpp.co.uk/History/Churchill/Japan_surrender_attempts/MS.html

>FORMERLY SECRET FILES in London and Washington now reveal that Japan was trying to surrender, and had put out the most serious peace messages, three weeks before the atomic bombs were dropped; and that Joseph Stalin, Winston Churchill, and the other Allied leaders were aware of this.
>Washington too decided to squelch every sign that Japan was trying to quit. When the International News Service wired on July 7, 1945 that three influential newspaper publishers captured in Okinawa had confirmed that Japan would surrender immediately provided that the United States put in only a token occupation force, the State Department forbade publication of the news.

>On July 8, the Department learned that the Japanese military attaché at Stockholm had told Prince Bernadotte over dinner that the Emperor Hirohito would ask Sweden's King Gustav to contact the Allies when the right time came, and that he had stated only one Japanese condition of surrendering: namely, that the Emperor himself remain in office. (This term was subsequently adopted by the Allies).

tl;dr

>Japan was willing to surrender
>The allies knew about it and ignored it (didn't refuse, just ignored)
>Only condition was the emperor stay in office
>>
>>35173282
>I meant that they would never surrender unless they were invaded/bombed/lost huge of amounts of life at home.
But they had been bombed and lost huge amounts of life already.
What's obviously more important is not how many lives had been lost, but what was likely to happen if things continued. In particular, whether they thought they stood a chance defending the main islands against an invasion. The situation with the Russians meant that suddenly they were facing an invasion from a far, far larger enemy force, and no longer had any prospect of success.

>But I'm curious what were these conditions

Wild pigs/boars? Certainly, those fuckers are smart. Domesticated pigs? Hardly. At best they're around the same level as a domesticated dog breed of average dog intelligence.

oh wait, we were at the same stage?
>>
>In June 1945, at Beaufort on Borneo’s north-west coast, upon defeating the Japanese and learning of the 2000 Australian and Britsh POWs dying on the Sandakan Death March, Australian troops let loose indigenous headhunters on some of the 6000 Japanese who surrendered. These Japanese POWs were forced in a death march of their own, the “Beaufort Episode”.

>A former prostitute recalled that as soon as Australian troops arrived in Kure in early 1946, they 'dragged young women into their jeeps, took them to the mountain, and then raped them. I heard them screaming for help nearly every night'.

>I stood beside a bed in hospital. On it lay a girl, unconscious, her long, black hair in wild tumult on the pillow. A doctor and two nurses were working to revive her. An hour before she had been raped by twenty soldiers. We found her where they had left her, on a piece of waste land. The hospital was in Hiroshima. The girl was Japanese. The soldiers were Australians. The moaning and wailing had ceased and she was quiet now. The tortured tension on her face had slipped away, and the soft brown skin was smooth and unwrinkled, stained with tears like the face of a child that has cried herself to sleep

>Major General Paul Cullen indicated that the killing of Japanese prisoners in the Kokoda Track Campaign was not uncommon. In one instance he recalled during the battle at Gorari that "the leading platoon captured five or seven Japanese and moved on to the next battle. The next platoon came along and bayoneted these Japanese."

I'm telling that's your particular nature I don't get
You know a propaganda isn't based on fact but is a depiction designed to fuel hatred on an enemy
Yet you guys even today imitate how your grand-grand dads reacted and were motivated by the propaganda, as they were manipulated

Everyone's too inefficient. We should all take a leaf out of the Borjigin's book, and assign a set number of people for every soldier to behead, that's a proper cull.

What that unit had done has already published in the USA Public Record Office.

However as far as I remember,there aren't any materials show objective evidence proving japanese war crimes and inhumaned acts.

Americans have photography of what we saw what 40s nips did to island people and australians/americans.

And you would claim that no such thing could happen to the far more numerous and more hated koreans and chinese?
