Andy's and Logan's Thoughts on the Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

We had many, many thoughts on the topic of whether or not bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki was right. In our opinions, bombing both of them was the right thing to do. Many would argue that it was completely wrong, but we disagree. The reason we, the U.S., bombed the two places was to save the citizens, even if it meant ending the lives of others. As a country, we think it is our duty to put ourselves before another nation. We were simply looking out for ourselves. These thoughts of ours brings us to the big question, "Is it okay to kill someone if it will save someone else?"

We believe it all depends on the situation. In our case (the case of bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki), we think it was 100% okay. Like we said, it's our duty to put ourselves before another country. Those on the side of "it wasn't right to bomb the Japanese" probably think that it wasn't because thousands of lives were lost. What they probably don't take into account is that it was done to protect the U.S. It was done for best of our nation.
