Pearl Harbor could have been stopped, but was allowed in order to give America pretext for entering the war. Japan was already trying to surrender when the nukes were dropped, but their surrender was rejected.

The ONLY reason the nukes were dropped was to demonstrate to the world that the USA has the technology for nukes, and was willing to use it. Unless it was demonstrated, the threat of nukes could be written off as a bluff, and therefore would lose its deterrent effect. Given they could have demonstrated it in a way that didn't cost hundreds of thousands of civilian lives, but that hardly makes the same psychological impact now does it?

BITCOINTALK STAFF SELECTIVELY ENFORCE THE RULES IN AN ATTEMPT TO CREATE A CHILL EFFECT AND PERMANENTLY REMOVE ME AND OTHERS FROM THIS FORUM AS RETALIATION FOR SPEAKING OUT ABOUT THEIR ABUSIVE BEHAVIOR, AND THAT OF THEIR PERSONAL CLIQUES.
