Nonetheless, I don't see the use of those two bombs as having been necessary either. I'd have saved them for Mecca and Medina. WW-II was basically over, Japan's 75 largest cities were in ashes, and they were looking for a way out. There were 20,000,000 people walking around in forests because the cities in which they used to live no longer existed.
Well, then you have a poor knowledge of history then. Japan was NOT going to surrender. In fact it took two A bombs before they did surrender and there was a plot by military leaders to scotch that surrender but it didn't work out.
The US was expecting a million US troop casualties and Japan about the same. The people were gearing up to fight alongside the Japanese armed forces in order to protect their homeland.
The bombs were necessary in order to save millions of lives.
