  • 1. Sandy CashMailbox 108Truman defends the use of the atomic bomb by saying that it would be either us comingup with the atomic bomb or Germany coming up with it. One of the things Truman leavesout about the nuclear strike on Hiroshima is the fact that this will not only kill soldiersbut it will also kill innocent townspeople. Truman emphasizes the cooperation betweenthe U.S. and Britain to develop he nuclear weapons, to share the blame in creating thisdestructive bomb. In my opinion, Truman’s statement that this atomic power couldinfluence world peace makes me think he’s going to be a bully with it to make sure thereis peace.Truman defends the use of the atomic bomb saying, “while at that time Britain wasexposed to constant air attack and was still threatened with the possibility of invasion.”He also talks about how if we did not come up with the atomic bomb, Germany wouldhave and they would have used it. Also, coming up with the atomic bomb gave peoplejobs; he says, “Employment during peak construction numbered 125,000 and over 65,000individuals are even now engaged in operating the plants.”Truman leaves out the details about the how many innocent people were killed by thenuclear strike on Hiroshima. Also, he talks about how this had to be kept secret, but thatmakes a person wonder how much he is still keeping a secret. Truman emphasizes theteam work of the U.S. and Britain to develop nuclear weapons, because he does not wantto be completely responsible for how big an affect they had on Japan.Truman’s statement that he would consider how atomic power could influence worldpeace makes me think he will act like a bully. It seems like since the U.S. has this atomic
  • 2. bomb, he will not let other countries forget it, and will use it to help get his way. Forexample, saying, “Nah you can’t touch me, because I have the better weapon, so youbetter listen.”Truman defends the use of the atomic bomb by saying; Britain was in danger of beinginvaded, so we had to help them by creating the atomic bomb. One of the things Trumanleaves out about the nuclear strike on Hiroshima is the fact that this will not only killsoldiers but it will also kill innocent townspeople. Truman emphasizes the cooperationbetween the U.S. and Britain to develop he nuclear weapons, so the U.S. does not have totake complete responsibility. In my opinion, Truman’s statement that this atomic powercould influence world peace, paints this picture of Truman using it to bully othercountries around with it.
