Do we owe Japan an apology for our decision to drop two atomic bombs on their country during World War II? No, not necessarily. The war was the single most costly conflict the American people had ever experienced. President Harry Truman’s decision to drop two atomic bombs on Japan in the summer of 1945 was a horrific, yet necessary factor in ending World War II. The bombs saved countless American lives and forced Japan to surrender, which brought an end to three years, eight months, and 22 days of conflict for the United States . President Truman was only responsible for the decision to drop the bombs, not to have them made. The bombs were ultimately approved to be built by Franklin Roosevelt. It was Roosevelt who first learned about the new ideas of nuclear fission and uranium to create bombs through great physicist and Nazi Germany refugee, Albert Einstein. Einstein informed him of Nazi Germany’s plans with the new scientific developments, and how they were going to build a bomb. Not the scientific facts, but rather, the fact that Germany was securing their uranium and planning to build a bomb of their own sparked Roosevelt’s interest. After Germany attacked Poland and world War II had officially begun, the race to build the bomb ensued. American, British, and German scientists were all working to scientifically prove Einstein’s ideas, and to fabricate plans for the bomb. The British scientists ended up finding the procedure first, and shared their findings with the American scientists. Shortly after Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor and Germany declaring war with America, Franklin Roosevelt gave the orders to build the bomb . By 1945, it was clear to both America and Japan that Japan would not win the war. American leaders knew that despite the odds, Japanese soldiers would continue to resiliently defend themselves against the United States, as surrender was cowardly and dishonourable in Japanese culture. We saw the Japanese represent this cultural trait earlier in the war during the battle on Iwo Jima, where they continued to fight until almost their last soldier.
