The Japanese should thank us for Hiroshima and Nagasaki, it saved many more Japanese lives, compared to how many Japanese would have lost their lives in a full-scale invasion.

Not only that, it saved Japan from a Korea-like Civil War, because certainly the Soviets would have gotten involved, and would have demanded their half of Japan in return.
