2. I, Too, have questioned the value, been all over the map, actually,
as to the justification for trying out the nuclear bombs on Japan. Then I read about the 225,000 us soldiers they were holding as POWs; that they were going to kill if the US invaded Japan.
At present, I am of the opinion that there would have been millions more dead in that war than actually happened, therefore the bomb, not a good thing, was very possibly not as bad a thing as could and likely would have happened.
