Oct 2nd 2010 6:32PM While technically your comment about America responding with the atomic bomb after pearl harbor was attack could be considered true, it was not the only factor in that decision. The main reason the bomb was dropped was to avoid countless casualties on both sides of the war. The Japanese were known fanatics to their cause and it was believed they would fight to a man for every island we took. though 150,000 to 250,000 japanese lost their lives in the bombing a drawn out war had the probability of costing close to a million lives. So in that sense it was a more humane option, of course not to the people being bombed but as they say war is hell, and if it was not for japan's action we probably would not have taken such an active role in that war.
Other then that I agree with your comment
