The End Of A War...

crewmembers - the end of a war...

Are they Heroes or not?

naga - the end of a war...

Would more people die if the bomb wasn't dropped and the war continued?

    I don't think we can judge the men in the aircraft for what they did one way or the other, they were just an aircrew doing their job, heroes in that respect as much as any other aircrew. I dont know how much they were told about the weapon they were about to drop and whether they knew what the consequences would be.

    You can argue either way that it helped shorten the war, but I think the dropping of the bombs on Japan was a good thing for what came after. We're lucky that the bombs were developed during war and were used in limited numbers as soon as they were ready so that only one side had them. Imagine if WW2 ended without them and the Cold War started, with by 1949 both sides having nuclear weapons and in larger numbers. Without the initial shock at having seen them used on a civilian population and world reaction to this there would have been even greater pressure on both superpowers to use them. I think without the lessons of Hiroshima and Nagasaki there was a much greater chance of the Cold War descending into nuclear conflict.

    think about it this way: One of the gunners committed suicide not long after the bombings. This is the same man who was quoted as he watched the blast, "My god. What have we done?"

    Do you think he felt like a hero?

    Probably saved allot of lives ending the war but still killed allot of people. Whatever you think, these men were following orders and they did their job well. Heroes in my book.

    If it got us to where we are today, yeah they're heroes. Sure America's not the greatest and we don't have ALL of our freedom, but it's better than being a commy.

    If we never would've dropped the bomb, Japan probably would have fucked us over.

    Why would it matter if the soviets ended up invading Japan instead of us when we end up allying with the Red Army to fight off Germany? Another thing is that you have to remember the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and that's why we retaliated with a giant bomb pretty much saying "Fuck You" to Japan. But look at the birght side: we're not in a communist or socialist government. But look at how many people we had to kill to get to where we are today. That fact saddens me in my opinion.

    To launch a full scale invasion on Japan probably would have resulted in many more American Casualties. The men probably did not feel like heroes after all was said and done.

    The most important thing to look at is the ramifications felt far after the war. There has not been another major global conflict in which almost all the worlds nations have been involved. Sounds crazy but the most destructive weapon has been useful in keeping relative peace.

    Here's the thing, by dropping those bombs, we saved Japan. You see, Japanese mentality, especially at that time, was very much about honour, and never surrendering. If we had fought them with conventional methods, we would have had to fight them down to the point where they would never recover. By scaring them into a sensible surrender, we saved the lives of many, many, many Japanese, as well as a ton of US soldiers. It's like spanking a child. Sure, it hurts, and it may seem mean to some people, but in the long run, the child learns discipline, respect, and becomes a better person. Anyone who says they're traumatized because they were spanked as a child is just after attention. But I digress. My point is, it WAS necessary, and it's good that we did it. Those bombs saved a lot of lives.

    War in itself doesn't justify it, but the ending of war does, at the time, the American people had no idea how far the war was going to escalate so it was basically a 'lesser of two evils' decision, shock them into losing or have more of our men gone forever.

    I know mate, sure it ended the war quickly, but not for the right reasons.

    First off here are the reasons that those cities were picked:

    1.The target was larger than three miles in diameter and was an important target in a large urban area.

    2.The blast would create effective damage.

    3.The target was unlikely to be attacked by August 1945.

    Thats just inhumane and a war crime in itself, the fact that the cities were pretty muched picked based on their urban population and low defences, this shows that the aim from the start was to kill civilians and nothing more.

    Also Japan was already losing the war and were in fact getting ready to surrender, as President Truman mentioned in his diary "Stalin will be in the Jap War on August 15th. Fini Japs when that comes about". The Americans dropped both their bombs in early August before the 15th.

    This blatantly shows that the only reason Truman dropped those bombs was to end the war before Russia invaded Japan, so they didn't have another communist occupied area to deal with.

    So yeah, fucked up. Just totally fucked up, and the picture you uploaded summarises it beautifully

    final point. the japs bombed the US. if you bomb us we will find you and fuck you up. we didn't start WW2 but we sure as hell ended it with a BANG! moral of the story leave us alone and you don't get the sun dropped in your back yard.

    Has that not happened in almost every war by every army in the history of humans? The vikings, Romans, Mongols, Russians etc plundered, raped and kill everything in their path when invading countries. Thats war, it's horrible, but that's war.

    The point is that the japanese were already holding talks of surrender, and the fact that tens of thousands of civilians were killed for whatever reasons Americans put out there is fucking horrible, and if people can't see the wrong in that then I just don't know.

    Now I'm not saying this to be anti American whatsoever, because I think every country in the world (apart from Switzerland) has fucked up big time at one point or another. I'm English and we've done some pretty horrendous stuff aswell, but I can admit that, I would just like to see Americans admitting to be wrong for fucking once in your lives, instead of coating it over and trying to convince yourselves that killing all those people was the right thing to do. Because whichever way you look at it, killing thousands of civilians is NEVER the right thing to do.

    if your true problem is the civilian deaths then why even mention the abomb? man more people were killed in the napalm strikes but that is war. if you don't want your country bombed back to the stone age, don't attack my country. its that simple.

    so i doubled the wrong letter, and when you look at the path of communism that lenin preached it slowly led to socialism, and stalin piggy back on lenin after lenin died and stalin made it a totalitaian state of government in russia. communism is, a social stucture where there is no classes, everyone is equal, and everyone works for the benifit of the people as a whole, communism and marxism are so much a like that they are almost the same. socialism is like communism just with a slash of capitalism and in the communist manifesto socialism is the step before communism therfore they go hand in hand.

    Right, and you know what else? Facism on the politcal spectrum is a step above capitalism by your logic. I think we can both agree that your country is not turning into a facist dictatorship (nor will it according to you.) At any rate, I have to wonder why a bit of socialism in the US would be so bad? About 2% of your country controls 80% of your currency. You would help far more people than you would hurt if you balanced the wealth a little. Also, in a true socialist gov't more money goes toward social programs (for example, things like water, power, university tuition would be much cheaper if not free.) It's too bad so many people like you let communism scare you.

    for me this debate has only 2 points;
    1. we are using knowledge and biases from 2010 to judge something from 1945. things have changed since then and I don't personally feel it is ok to use todays morals to judge people from 1945. try and put yourself in their shoes.
    2. the US did not start the war. we did the best we could to stay out of the war. Japan brought us into the war. so we finished it. its kinda like this. when i was in middle school i had a bully who was always trying to fight me. well one day he finally got me to fight him. he was the agressor but i broke his nose and arm (the funny thing the bully never knew was that earlier that week i had gotten my black belt that took me 4 years to get). well how suprised was that bully when he came to beat up his prey but the prey was a wolf is sheeps clothing. this bully was suspened from school for 2 weeks for trying to start and getting into fights. i will always remeber my PE coach telling me that the kid got what he deserved. in closeing, i like the US will never start a fight but if you do engage me or the US in a fight we will use everything in our power to make sure you never want to fight us again. if you agree or disagree that the bomb was a good or bad idea does not matter. what i am sure we can all agree on is that if Japan had not attacked the US then the US probly would not had droped a bomb. funny thing is, since the US dropped the bomb japan has been real nice to the US. Point made.

    Lenin was a hero at the time. Before communism, Russia was still a monarchy, with an incompetent tsar as a leader. On top of that, people were suffering from famine and the aftermath of a war. Revolution was needed at the time. (Say what you will about the result) Another interesting thing is that Lenin did not want Stalin to take over, he made that clear before he died.

    I have mixed feelings about it. At the time the two bombs were dropped, Japan was losing the war. They would have lost without the bmbs, but it probably would have resulted in more US soldiers dying and the war would have lasted much longer (posssibly continuing during the cold war, giving russia an excuse to side with Japan.)On the other hand, these bombs were dropped on 2 non-military targets, killing many civilians. Even years later, the radiation was still taking effect. When it comes down to it, you have to ask yourself, what's worse? The deaths of american soldiers, who knew what they were getting into, OR the deaths of Japanese civilians who didn't sign up for the war and probably wanted nothing to do with it. I can understand american bias, but I'm more inclined to sympathize with the japanese civilians.

    Communism (way to spell it wrong.) and socialism are very different. Saying they go hand in hand is like saying capitalism and facism do. You're taking the extreme left of the politcal spectrum and assuming the moderate is equal to it. A little bit of left wing policy here and there isn't going to turn a country into a dictatorship. Stop trying to fear monger.

    I'm see what you are getting at Crazyjay, but he won't let you have you own opinion, even though you were expressly asked for it by Naugron.
    We've all learned to totally ignore that fact that such a bigoted, self opinionated arsehole even exists. So just play along with us and ignore his poorly spelled attempts to put you down.

    ha you mispelled it too. Try "communism". Spell it right yourself before you go correcting others. The Japanese kamikazes and banzai's had way more honor than you ever will. Wanna know why? Because they were willing to blow themselves and run right into the line of fire up in order to kill US troops. Now i'm not saying they were right. I'm not saying our troops deserved to die. And about the exaggerated nonsense, let me ask you this; was it true? The US will always find a way to drag themselves into the middle of a war no matter what. I'm gonna quote Patton here “You shouldn't underestimate an enemy, but it is just as fatal to overestimate him.” And that is why we lost so many troops and how the attack on Pearl Harbor came about. Because we underestimated them. ANybody else agree?

    I would like to throw in two things here:

    1. More were killed by fire bombing than atomic bombing.

    2. We were horrifically disobeying standard rules of war, throwing morality out of the window.

    I think we shouldn't just think of the atomic bomb, but all of the ridiculous amounts of civilian casualties induced. Not the greatest moment in American history.

    its not the american way. thats what we don't like it. the government should do nothing more than make it where you can suceed or fail on your own. the US for the most part does not like big government. also statements like"Ill bet most of you don't know anything about it." are just insulting and do not help your topic.

    Back when Japan attacked pearl harbour, the Atom bomb haddened been created. They had no idea what was going to happen. There's also no excuse for deliberately hitting civilian targets.

    i can't stand Glenn Beck. so what you are saying is if i can't prove it to you then it must not be true? i think i will pass on your silly test, i just hope you are truly smarter than what you said. the only thing you said that truly pissed me off is that i like glenn beck, rush, or Bill "Papa Bear" O'Realy. i would love to tie all 3 of them to a steak in the middle of a field. put honey all over them. let the fire ants do the rest.

    you said the bomb was not justified.
    my question is justified to who?
    you were not born so they could not ask your oppinion at the time.
    justified to who?

    I already explained it pretty clearly. I don't think that the amount of civilian casualties was worth it. The whole point of this post was to get people's opinions, I gave mine. Nobody here was around, or "in mind" as you said, so the point you're trying to make is completely worthless.
