    Butler 1 Nicholas Butler Professor McDonnell English I 11 May 2005 Decisions to Drop the Bombs on Japan War in itself is an atrocity, to kill or be killed in the name of whatever government chooses to go to war over.

    The Chemistry of Nuclear Weapons Nuclear weapons are weapons capable of mass destruction. They are powered by two reactions, fission and fusion. These weapons produce massive explosions and hazardous radioactive products. Some miniaturized tactical weapons have the force of a kiloton of TNT. While other strategic weapons create thousands of kilotons of force. However, only two nuclear bombs have been used in actual warfare. The Atomic Bomb and the Hydrogen Bomb. Nuclear fission is the splitting...

    Death is a reality. Men should be conscious of that reality. I say men, because the willingness to die fora cause is most likely inherent to our sex. We (the man) were hunters running after wily beasts, and nature most likely gave us the cruel gift to be contentedly conscious of our fate (the jaws of the prehistoric predator before us! ) If the soldier can imagine his enemy to be the beast, then perhaps he can die with this intrinsic honor. Throw total war away, leave the unprepared civilian be....

Even without the atomic bomb, the Japanese empire would have collapsed. The United States, however, did not want to let the Soviet Union enter the war and invade Japan in order to spread communism. Before the atomic bomb, the US had already developed plans for the invasion of Japan. Therefore, there is great speculation that the bomb was dropp...
