Is the Hiroshima Bomb Justified?

  1. 1. Eric and Yugi
  2. 2. The World At War- America was attacked byJapan on 1941 when Americadid nothing.- America joined the WorldWar in 1944.- America defeated the Nazisin Germany, ending the war inEurope on May 1945.
  3. 3. - America now focused on Japan.- America asked Japan to surrenderon June 1945.- Japan did not reply.- They instead, fought till the end byusing their own people, usingkamikazes (suicide pilots) and sinkingAmerican ships.- America, angry, dropped an atomicbomb on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945.-Japan surrenders on August 14, 1945- The bomb ended the World War.
  4. 4. The bomb on Hiroshima was justified in many ways. Thatll be explained next slide.
  5. 5. • It ended the World War• It saved a lot more time• It saved a lot more soldiers lives and a lot more money• It was a wiser choice as Japan was fighting on their mainland, which is more harshly defended• Japan used suicide pilots to sink American ships and killed both American, and Japanese soldiers.
  6. 6. • Japan used their own citizens to defend their country and didnt care if everyone died, causing a lot more soldier and citizen lives• America gave Japan 1 month to surrender. Japan replied by driving suicide pilots into American naval ships• Japan would probably not give mercy to anyone if they conquered the world• Japans loss forced them to give independence to conquered countries like Korea and Taiwan.
  7. 7. • This side is the side where it says that America should not drop the bomb.• They could have do it the other way not just dropping a bomb and killed a ton of Japanese people.
  8. 8. • The bomb called "Little Boy" killed about 100 thousand innocent people.• The Americans drop the bomb that killed innocent that have nothing to do with the war.• Maybe the Japanese might attack first, but Japanese attack soldier. U.S killed innocent people.
  9. 9. • There is one thing that is almost as worse as the bomb, which is the radiation causes after the bomb.• This radiation can killed people through getting into your body and slowly develop cancer. This radiation still happens today.
  10. 10. • Another reason is that if the American would go army against army it wouldnt kill a lot of innocent people.• If they didnt use the bomb it will just be soldiers killing soldiers and it will be a fair war.
