As to the viciousness and ugliness of the Japanese atrocities against China, Korea, the Philippines and other areas in Asia, I can show you brutality on behalf of Stalin, Hitler and the Ottoman Empire (the Armenian Holocaust), that in no way takes second place to the unimaginable inhumanity of the Japanese forces.
The Japanese Army was killing 150,000 Asians a day. The A-Bomb saved millions of lives.

Absolutely agree - as well as with all the other posts. We had to do it, there was no other option.
I think the title of the post might have been vulnerable to misinterpretation. Lost in this is the point that the opponents of the bombings fail to note that we in fact, went out of our way to spare civilian deaths.
They chose to obey their government rather than save their own lives.
