Thanks indcons. If we’d have had 50 more, and Japan had continued to refuse surrender, and we’d used the bombs to wipe Japan off the face of the Earth, the rest of the world, particularly the victims of Japan in the Far East, would have cheered so loud we’d have heard them over here.
BTW, I just mentioned your list on my profile page. :’)

Thanks, indcons. If you project what happened in the Okinawa campaign to the Japanese home islands, it becomes very clear that Hiroshima and Nagasaki resulted in a net saving of Japanese lives, possibly millions, not to mention the G.I.'s who got to come home alive.
