We had gone through 5 years of war, with our allies having gone through
more. Japan was enslaving the peoples of China and Korea, using the women
for all kinds of unspeakable things. Japan tortured our American soldiers
they captured. 20 million Russian allies died because of Hitler. Hitler
had slaughtered 6 million Jews. Millions of soldiers had died on all
fronts.  We wanted the war to end. I mean, Germany had surrendered, and
Japan insisted on continuing the fight they had started.

Although it is a shame we had to do it, Japan was not serious about
surrender until we dropped the bomb. Had we invaded the island, we would
have been fighting in the streets of Tokyo, where millions would have
ended up casualties in order to protect the emperor.

Stephen,

Perhaps you're right, but I still fail to see how the United States 
maintained the moral high ground by bombing civilians. I think a 
"demonstration" about 5 miles offshore might have accomplished the same 
purpose.
