The US effectively ended the War in the Pacific.
All the outcries about the deaths of the Japanese? Yeah, they killed more in Tokyo with the fires that the “conventional” bombing caused.
And, frankly, I don’t care. War is about killing people and breaking things until your opponent stops making war and fighting. Period.
The Atomic Bombs were simply a more efficient way to do that.
And honestly, the Japanese deaths mattered less than the American and allied deaths that would have come had they invaded Japan. Keeping THOSE deaths to a minimum is/was a higher goal that worrying about how many Japanese might or might not have died.
