so bombing 2 villiages and killing and maiming innocent people was justified?

hmm your thought process scares me.

I'm not trying to flame you, please don't take it like that. I just don't understand people that think like you. I mean that in the friendliest way possible.

I suggest that you look at the fighting in Okinawa and the massive civilian casualties (through effective brainwashing of the Japanese population by their government leading to suicides) and military casualties inflicted there. If there had been a conventional assault on the main islands many more people would have died, the Soviets may have gotten involved in the North and the end result ~ a defeated Japan ~ would be won at greater cost to all involved.

It was not a choice between right and wrong; but between bad and worse.

There's also the factor that the invention of nukes probably stopped the Cold War from ever turning into a real war, given 'mutually assured destruction', etc.

I don't agree. But that's ok. We don't have to, life is more fun that way.

Anyway, I didn't mean to derail the thread.
