Surely, with a result so potentially catastrophic, no one within ethical boundaries could use it. I'm not sure whether Mr. Churchill had it right or if he...

    It is said that there are two views about the use of the atomic bomb, orthodox and revisionist. The orthodox view is one of solely winning the war, while the revisionist view is one of intimidating the Soviet Union. While I do not believe that the atomic bomb was a necessary weapon in this war, I do think it helped the US kill two birds with one stone. I think it both won the war and scared the USSR in the process. An important argument for the use of the atomic bomb was the distrust of the Sov...
