Have you ever been really nervous because if you don't win a race to build the world most dangerous weapon you are in a critical condition of dying? The best part of the book is when Japan refuses to surrender. The only option is to drop atomic bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima. It was intelligently planned to drop bombs there because it would, of course, scare many. Not only that but Nagasaki and Hiroshima were really unarmed for something like the world's most dangerous weapon in the world (the atomic bomb). In the book The Bomb by, Steve Sheinkin writes about how most countries in the world is in a race to build the first atomic bomb. The U.S. successfully makes the bomb and ends the war. The author Steve Sheinkin fully describes how the conflict
“In 1957, with the arms race in full swing, the Department of Defense had decided it was just a matter of time before an airplane transporting an atomic bomb would crash on American soil, unleashing a radioactive disaster the likes of which the world had never seem.” On August 6, 1945, the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, killing 20,000 soldiers and 70,000 – 126,000 civilians. On August 9, 1945, the second atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, killing 39,000 – 80,000. A total of 129,000 – 226,000 people were killed in combining both bomb droppings. Dropping both atomic bombs on Japan was necessary to end the war because the military needed to end the war, the Japanese were given fair warnings
Many people know what it feels like for one action or event to change the whole course of a day, a year, or maybe your whole life. The book The Bomb, by Theodore Taylor, is set on a Pacific Island called Bikini Atoll. During World War II, the Americans took over the atoll from the Japanese, who were in control at the time. The main character, Sorry Rinamu, is grateful for being freed by the Americans. However, after the war, the Americans wanted to test another Atomic Bomb, and they chose to test it for research at Bikini Atoll. The conflict that drives the plot is that Sorry tries to stop the Americans from testing the bomb on his home (person vs society). The two primary ways it generates the plot are when most islanders agree to have their atoll taken away by the Americans and when Sorry gets the radical idea to stop the test from happening from his uncle, Abram Rinamu.
Several times I’ve lost the interest of a boys attention to a friend. A friend that said they had no interest in perusing a relationship with that boy. Later on they become jealous and sabotage our relationship. My junior year I was with a boy named Jared. I became really good friends with his friends and truly believed they were my friends. Later on in the relationship my friend Destiny started having feelings for him and started going behind my back and trying to get his attention. She would start rumors about me to try and throw my boyfriend off and try and make him lose feelings for me. After this Jared and I started to spiral downwards like a tornado. At the time I had no idea what Destiny was doing so I still thought we were really great friends. When I needed some one to vent to I went to her, and of course her playing her two-sided game she would use my troubles against me. Jared and I did stop being in a relationship, because people would not keep their business out of ours. In the long run Jared and I are still really close friends and neither of us speak to
Bombing two major cities may seem wrong but it was necessary in order to come out as a successful nation. During World War 2 on August 6th and 9th of 1945 the United States was the first country to use an atomic device against an enemy. This enemy was the country of Japan. After the Japanese killed thousands of U.S soldiers with their ruthless and unexpected attack on Pearl Harbour the United States released two atomic bombs on their two major cities. These cities were known as Nagasaki and Hiroshima. After the bombs were dropped the war was put to an end. The use of the atomic bombs is a widely debated topic on whether their use was necessary or not. The bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were not only necessary to end the war but it was also necessary because many American lives were lost.
The dropping of the Atomic Bomb changed not only warfare forever, but also all international relations. With that being said, the decision to do so was one of the biggest decisions made by any government in the history of time. Nuclear warfare was way more destructive and way faster than any other form of warfare preceding. With the United States seemingly always viewed to be “the good guys” it is puzzling that this country is the same one who killed hundreds of thousands of people all at once and essentially ruined not one but two entire cities within minutes of dropping two single bombs. This decision was not taken lightly, and with basically two schools of thought, liberalism vs. realism, insisting to do so or not to do so, and realism won out. Realism and the many counterparts that strengthen this school of thought is what drove the decision to go ahead and drop the atomic bomb.
During 1941 through 1945 a war had occurred in the Pacific between the Americans and the Japanese this war was called The Pacific Theater. This war was also being fought during the duration of another World War against Germany and Japan but on May 8, 1945 Germany surrendered to the allied powers leaving Japan to still be dealt with. However Japan would not surrender even after the major battles between the Americans and Japanese in Iwo Jima and Okinawa. The Americans then came to conclusion to try and get to a new military weapon which then started the ManHattan Project. The Manhattan Project established a new powerful military weapon known as the Atomic Bomb. This new entirely militarized weapon was designed to force Japan into surrendering because Japan was still willing to fight even though they were on a brink of defeat and they were
The atomic bombs might have killed thousands, but the bombs also saved millions. Before the war even started Japan had a grudge on America for cutting off of their oil supplies. Germany lost to the allies after hitter committed suicide. Japan was the last remain axis power. When Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, America had a right to join the war and get revenge. When America dropped the bombs, they did their best not to harm many civilians. Also they saved more lives than they took. The atomic bomb was the best way toned the war efficiently.

In 1945, the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor without a warning and killed about 2,400 Americans. Later in 1945, the Americans attacked Hiroshima without a warning. The Americans also bombed Nagasaki, but the Japanese were warned and were given three days to evacuate or surrender. The United States’ decision to drop the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki was a military measure to destroy the Japanese military, force Japan’s surrender, and save American lives.
Take a moment and imagine yourself as a scientist. You’re in the Alamogordo desert. Your hands are sweating but not due to the heat. You’re waiting to see the first detonation of the weapon you developed – the atomic bomb. You’re asking, will it work at all? Will this one detonation destroy the entire world? Then moment of truth, it detonates; you are temporarily blinded by a bright light and you realize the tremendous power of this one weapon. The weapon is indiscriminate and destroys everything in its path. Now you ask yourself, “What have I done?”
In the 20th century- 1945 to be exact- during World War 2 a burst of light followed by an immense explosion with more power than 20,000 tons of TNT headed for Hiroshima, Japan. This was the world’s first atomic bomb, and 3 days later another one was dropped but this time on the city of Nagasaki. The U.S. dropped these bombs in order to trap Japan in a corner and leave them no choice but to surrender. This controversial event has led many to wonder if it was in fact a military necessity and yes it was, not only did it stop the war, it saved the lives of many American and Japanese soldiers, and it stopped Japan from breaking the international laws of warfare.
Secretary of War, Stimson was able to raise the possible outcomes that will come from the use of the bomb on non-combatants. It would taint the United States ‘international standing and reputation” . However, Truman did not take the location of the city into consideration. Furthermore, he was not particularly concern with the targets because he believed the air force would take of that. He left that to the military officials that were in charge of the operation, but he wanted to women or children to get hurt in the process. Ultimately, Truman trusted his officials in the matters of the atomic bomb. He’s faith in his official determined the consequences that would erupt.
The origins of the Manhattan Project go back to 1939, when Hungarian-born physicist Leo Szilard, who had moved to the U.S. in 1938 to conduct research at Columbia University, became convinced of the feasibility of using nuclear chain reactions to create new, powerful bombs. German scientists had just conducted a successful nuclear fission experiment, and based on those results, Szilard was able to demonstrate that uranium was capable of producing a nuclear chain reaction. Szilard noted that Germany
In the article Argument Supporting the Bomb, by Michael Barnes, the general thesis was that the atomic bomb was necessary. Throughout the article there are many propaganda techniques used to convince the reader. For example, techniques like transferring the blame, lesser of the two evils, and card stacking are used throughout the article. For instance, in the article the author uses the fact that the Japanese attacked the United States first: “the back-stabbing” aspect of the “surprise” attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941”. The transfer technique is used here to distract the reader, and make them think about Pearl Harbour. As a result the reader overlooks the fact that the atomic bomb killed more than a hundred thousand citizens. Not
