Max's Opinion on the Atomic Bomb

I think that the U.S.A did do the right thing by dropping the Atomic Bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, it was a justifiable and moral decision. Yes, the results were sad and devastating but it was the right thing to do. It saved many American lives by destroying the Japanese military bases.

The firsthand accounts were sad and made me really think about what I thought about the issue. I think that in certain occasions it is okay to kill someone to save someone else, like if you kill one person to save twenty. This was a dilemma that the U.S. government had overcome to bomb Japan.
