More Japanese were killed in the firebombings but that’s beside the point ...Japan killed millions in Nanking then went on to Rangoon and Burma slaughtering civilians where ever they went ... we wanted to end all that. They capitulated right after Nagasaki ....

Not quite. It took nearly six days for Japan to throw in the towel after Nagasaki and the largest air raid of the war took place on the night of 14 August 1945, before the Japanese officially surrendered.
