Just repeating something I commented above and why I would actually say that it was justified

@Sean L
A somewhat less known fact is that the conventional fire bombings were just as bad for the Japanese if not worse than the 2 nukes
The reason why the nukes worked as the undisputable blow that broke the spirit of resistance of the Japanese leadership is the same why it's being seen as a horrible thing to do (it is, but honestly it was the lesser of 2 evils)
The fact that it was a single (2 actually but you get the point) major blow and not a death by a 1000 cuts that was the fire bombings...
In a weird way the nukes saved more lives, Japanese and American than they took...

Bottom line
The Japanese would not surrender easily, a land invasion would have many more casualties of non combatants
Literally every man woman and even the able children were being told that they would have to die for country and emperor...
The bombs prevented at least some of that.

And the author, Krzysztof Penderecki, our polish legend, has died just a few hours ago. May his soul rest in peace 😭

@Marmolejo Martinez Jose Emilio ....You'd wish. It was only on a certain radius from the blast. After that they get burned to death or irradiated, to death.
