    We were seen as the victor. The Atomic Bomb was not seen as it is today or even as it was seen in the movies of the 50s or early 60s by most people. When it was dropped, it actually saved millions of lives, both American lives and Japanese lives. We would have had to invade the islands of Japan. Meanwhile, the Japanese were teaching their people, including their children, to fight to the death with whatever they had, including sticks. How do you think they would fair with sticks against machine guns? More than 10,000 people, mostly women with children, jumped off cliffs to their deaths in Okinawa because of what the Japanese had told the people about Americans. In the Battle for Saipan, 24,000 Japanese were killed, 5,000 committed suicide and only 921 were taken prisoner. This happened on every island we took. Imagine how bad it would have been if we had to invade the Japanese main islands of Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu? Imagine how long the war would have gone on for? Historians estimate another 2 to 3 years. They estimate more than a million more Americans alone would have been killed and up to 10 million Japanese civilians. And that's just in fighting. Don't forget that the Japanese people were already beginning to starve by 1945. I've gotten most of this from the History Channel. I'm very interested in the the war because it was my parents' era and my uncle was killed in France.

    Cheers USA!

    First there was VE day, and now the war in the pacific is over. I think back then it was a relief that the war in the pacific and unconditional surrender of Japan marked peace time and time to rebuild both Europe and Japan.

    Too bad that history is so unkind to the allied forces. I blame it on the infiltration of socialist conduct by the academic in the public schools.

    This is the kind of question where you're much more likely to find some answers in books than on "websites." Find some books on the atomic bombing of Japan; look at their footnotes and bibliographies to find pointers to other books and articles that deal more specifically with international reaction to the use of the weapons.

    Much of the truth was hidden by the west. Hollywood collusion airbrushed the ughly reality of the outcome.

    Campaign for nuclear disarmament would have won, to stop nuclear proliferation!

    Those who rule love war games! Nuclear bomb or MAD mutuall asurred destruction only works when both sides are "sane" or "learn" example 1962 the Cuban missile crisis, when both US/USSR blinked and backed down.

    http://whowhatwhy.org/2015/08/06/classic-www-hiros... "In June of 1946, Lt. Daniel McGovern hauled 90,000 feet of color footage to the Pentagon and submitted it to General Orvil Anderson. Locked away and declared top secret, it did not see the light of day for more than thirty years."

    HOW THEY HID THE WORST HORRORS OF HIROSHIMA http://whowhatwhy.org/2015/08/07/classic-www-part-... "On September 12, 1967, the Air Force quietly transferred the Japanese footage to the National Archives Audio Visual Branch, with the stipulation that it was “not to be released without approval of DOD (Department of Defense).”

    http://whowhatwhy.org/2015/08/08/hiroshima-secrets... “Actually, the film had been quietly declassified a few years earlier, but the outside world seemed unaware of it. An archivist there later told me, ‘If no one knows about the film to ask for it, it’s as closed as when it was classified.’”

    http://whowhatwhy.org/2015/08/09/how-the-hiroshima... "How the Hiroshima Bombing Got a Hollywood Makeover

    Hollywood has always played a crucial role in the Military-Industrial Complex’s attempts to shape American minds and policy. Its role in sanitizing the horrors of Hiroshima is a powerful example."

    http://whowhatwhy.org/2014/03/26/atomic-devastatio...

    "Once top secret, the shocking images now carry an “unrestricted” label. You have, quite possibly, seen a few seconds of clips on television or in film documentaries. If so, those images may be burned into your mind. Yet no one was allowed to view them when the horror they captured might have prevented more horror by slowing down or even halting the nuclear arms race.

    Compounding the cover-up, the American military seized all of the black-and-white footage of the cities shot by the Japanese in the immediate aftermath of the bombings. They hid the film away for many years. It was known in Japan as the maboroshi, or “phantom,” film. It, too, rests in the National Archives today.

    “Never again.” At least not with outmoded bombs."

    Only based on my knowledge, the U.S. has earned its place at the head of the table after the bombs were dropped.

    Winner.

    The emperor thanked the USA for taking the courage to do that, because his people were so crazy at the time that every last citizen would have fought to the death.

    I cant find a website, but in general the west was happy about it because all is fair in war. Japan, however, was unhappy because they were disgraced in a war they started. the Soviet Union said it was immoral but thats because the Soviet never approved of the west.

      The Soviets also wanted to get into fighting in the Pacific. They had agreed to helped defeat the Japanese but their real goal was to take some of Japan and take over like they did at the end of the Korean War. They didn't get their chance.

    As barbaric, gun totting, uneducated savages who didn't end a war against an aggressive, imperialist and brutal nation who was carving its way through Asia for nearly a decade with massive loss of life to civilians in multiple invasions of neighbouring nations.
