Hiroshima: Dropping the Bomb

by BBCWorldwide • 4,107,447 views

Hear first-hand accounts from the air and ground, re-telling every memory from the day the world first witnessed the horrors of atomic warfare. Watch more Hiroshima from BBC Worldwide here:...

For all you morons crying boo hoo over the dropping of these bombs, I've spoken to many WW2 veterans, many of whom fought in the Pacific against the Japanese. Every single one said dropping those bombs saved their life. It is estimated we would have lost over a million men in a full scale invasion of Japan, along with over FOUR MILLION civilian and military Japanese casualties. That's 5 million total. So before you start bemoaning about the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, before you start lambasting the US as 'criminal' or 'the real terrorists' think of the lives saved on both sides because we dropped these bombs. I'd take 250,000 dead over 5 million any day of the week. President Truman did not have an easy decision to make, but he made the right one, the one we had to make.

This event, and WW2 as a whole depends on your point of view. Sure, the Axis had done some tragic things but so did the Allies. And this was the only time that the U.S ever used a bomb like what was shown in the video. Hell, we mostly found it pointless to use any other nuclear weapon in the future. But, by an idiots logic: Blaming a country that had NO INTENTION to join the Second World War just so their people can get themselves killed for countries that would never appreciate them and saying that their evil with NO EVIDENCE to support it is fine. I can see that we learnt nothing from this war have we?

This is sick. Reading all those comments about how Japan had it coming, how good it was to use that bombs to stop the war, how Japan didn't deserve any sympathy at that time...blah blah blah.... That is sick. You are sick people. NO ONE deserves NUCLEAR BOMBING! What is wrong with you? They were civilians. Women, children, old people, people who weren't fighting! How can you say it was for greater good? We should be saying how awful it was that they bombed them. We should be saying how awful it is that they felt that there is no other way to stop Japan... War is awful on its own, but using NUKES? Those weren't soldiers that died there. And using 'war facts' to justify it? That's just sick.

This people, is something called total war, look it up. You have your enemy and you do anything and everything you can do to ensure that you live and he does not. There are no rules in these kinds of wars. Hind sight is 20/20, so you can sit back in the air conditioning in front of a computer screen and talk about how wrong it is. But if you are honest with yourself, you know damn well that if another situation like this ever happened, you wouldn't care how your country beats them as long as they do and you live.

At that rate wouldn't the bomb bring down the Aircraft?
Report spam or abuse
+Martin Rangel No, the 509th CG Silverplate B-29s did not have gun turrets, save for those for the tail guns, in order to reduce weight and increase bomb-load capacity and speed. This was not an unusual practice in the Pacific. B-29 speed and the ability to fly at high altitudes could help avoid relatively slow-reacting interceptors and B-29s often did not use their guns. The single weather reconnaissance B-29 that would check cloud coverage over the target would probably not elicit a significant Japanese reaction anyway. Engineers and scientists had also estimated that the optimal altitude from which to drop the nuclear weapon was (for safety reasons) between 28,000 and 30,000ft. This would create a buffer allowing the aircraft to escape the expected shockwave and blast effects. Once released, Little Boy's timing device would arm the atomic bomb at 5,000ft, with detonation set for 1,850ft altitude. A radar detection system built into the bomb's four fins would determine the height of the bomb and activate the gun device that would initiate the nuclear explosion. Detonation at too low an altitude would force the blast, heat and shock effects into the ground — too high an altitude and the three effects would be dissipated into the atmosphere. Hope this helps.

A lot of people like to hate America for this. You think we are happy that this happened? You think that the people that dropped the bomb were cheering? No. But Japan didn't give us much choice. Here's a little history lesson for y'all. After the war in Europe was over, Japan refused to give up. They were in the mind set that they will not end the war. We would have to kill everyone of their soldiers first. Japan only entered the war to expand their empire. They took advantage of what was going on in Europe. They wanted to take over China and areas around it and they refused to give up. So this is the plan that the U.S. came up with. They hoped it would result in Japan's surrender. It wasn't instant. Japan still wanted to keep on but finally did a little while after. There was a lot more to this. This was just a small bit. Don't forget, Japan attacked us first. The US was not in the war until then. It's sad and horrifying what happened. But if you want to blame anyone, blame the government that was over Japan at the time.

To drop atomic bombs was correct. Wrong was not to hang Japanese war criminal Hirohito(1901-1989). Hirohito was so war criminal as Hitler, but "Uncle Sam"" needed na ally to Exchange complete cooperation for complete impunity. This was wrong. During Cold War, United States lost anyone in Europe, where complete justice was made, while United States losts more than 100,000 persons and more some trillions of US Dollars in wars against communist regimes. I live in Brazil. Harry S. Truman ( 1884 – 1972) is among the biggest American presidentes, but not to hang Japanese war criminal Hirohito was a terrible mistake.

Ok no one is an angel when it comes to war nobody can get it right be it America or Japan or any other country involved, but there are way to reduce civilian suffering. I agree that Pearl Harbour was wrong and should not have happened and that the Japanese have done many evil things just like the Americans, but when Pearl Harbour happened all those that were killed were US soldiers they did not fire on civilians or injured at the hospital and that's what makes the bombing of Hiroshoma and Nagasaki so sad because to many innocent people would have died the elderly, young, sick men and women and the man who flew the Enola Gay Paul Tibbets and the others on board did not see the horrific thing they just did and its consequences. The Japanese with the Rape of Nanking including very young girls. The Americas going to war after war in the Middle East for Oil and using Drone attacks. No one is the hero here.

Bullshit, the Japanese undertook a sneak attack and eradicated 2,403 of our people at Pearl Harbor who were minding their own business and not active at war and while the U.S. and Japan were officially neutral and negotiating each other for peace at the time. They didn't just attack a peaceful base but also did it while the U.S. was almost close of gaining a peace treaty with Japan. The people there did not deserve the attack upon them whatsoever and they did not posed a threat or set out to attack Japan. The people killed at Pearl Harbor were ALL innocents. This was not a justification for the nuclear attacks but to remind the Japanese that they attacked innocent Americans first when speaking in the term of context of non-combatant casualties. If we didn't drop the atomic bombs, millions of American, non-Japanese Asian, and Japanese lives would have been lost. Not just two atomic bombed cities, but all cities, towns, civilians, combatants, and prisoners of war etc, in mainland Japan and elsewhere regardless of  who they were and regardless of conventional or non-conventional methods would have been decimated that would have rivaled to the conditions Eastern Front (the Eastern Front killed at least 30 million Russians, many of whom were civilians). While it was horrible what happened, it was the best strategic decision ever undertaken by a military commander to bring an end to one of the most horrible conflicts in human history.

Comparisons made between the dropping of atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the attack on Pearl Harbor are simply not valid. The attack made by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan on December 7, 1941 was an assault on a military target. The nearby city of Honolulu, Hawaii was not targeted. In contrast, the weapons dropped on these two Japanese cities were weapons of mass destruction dropped deliberately on unsuspecting civilians, non-combatants.

In 1944, the War Department (what it was called before it changed it's name to the Defense Department), set up a study group called the Strategic Bombing Survey to investigate the effects of aerial attacks.  A report issued from that office in 1946 contains the following conclusion:  "The Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombs did not defeat Japan, nor by the testimony of the enemy leaders who ended the war did they persuade Japan to accept unconditional surrender.  The Emperor, the Lord Privy Seal, the Prime minister, the Foreign Minister, and the Navy Minister had decided as early as May of 1945 that the war should be ended even if it meant defeat on allied terms... ...Based on a detailed investigation of all the facts and supported by the testimony of the surviving Japanese leaders involved, it is of the Survey's opinion that certainly prior to 1 November 1945, Japan would have surrendered even if the atomic bombs had not been dropped, even if Russia had not entered the war, even if no invasion had been planned or completed." Another document dicovered in the National Archives which was a secret intelligence study by the army's top planning and operations group came to the same conclusions:  An invasion "would not have been necessary" and the A-bomb was not decisive in ending the war.  The Japanese surrender had more to do with the Soviet Union getting involved in the Pacific. Yale sociologist Kai Erikson says that using nuclear weapon was not "by any stretch of the imagination, a product of mature consideration... We have it on the authority of virtually all the principle players that no one in a position to do anything about it ever really considered alternatives" to dropping the bomb on Japan. Detailed documentation is found in the book Atomic Diplomacy by Gar Alperovitz to support the theory that the bombing of Japan was actually the opening salvo in the Cold War and the target of our intimidation was the Soviet Union.  This is being accepted as true by more and more mainstream historians. The idea that dropping the A-bomb actually saved lives is a fiction.  It's use by the USA is among the most horrific crimes in human history.

It was harsh back then. You were drafted into invading a beach (the meat grinder), had to kill to stay alive, it was srsly harsh, and some people are ignorant of how harsh it was. The japanese would rather die than surrender. People say that it was a bad idea to drop the nuclear bomb, but they had to drop TWO for them to surrender. Remember that it was rlly harsh back then.

+rochelimit's hangout The pilot that bombed Hiroshima(Paul Tibbets) didn't regret bombing them.

People really need to understand war better if they honestly think Hiroshima is the worst of human brutality. Dropping a bomb and killing people instantly without any pain? That's a godsend for your average soldier who has been shot with bullets or a jew being tortured by a nazi or a civilian of any country being tortured by the Japanese for no reason.  Curtis LeMay was bombing Japanese Civilians before it went mainstream. Compare the A-bomb to Lemay's bombings and the A-bomb is nothing

Deseases and radiation killed others slowly. You point is invalid.
