We needed to go to war with Japan so other nations didn't think the U.S was an easy target. The U.S needed to retaliate.

the use of nuclear weapons is contrary to the spirit. the dropping of this bomb was a direct violation of the charter of the united nations it would exceed even the scope of war and cause indiscriminate suffering and destruction to mankind and civilization and, as such, is contrary to the rules of international law and to the laws of humanity
Any State using nuclear or thermo-nuclear weapons is to be considered as violating the Charter of the United Nations, as acting contrary to the laws of humanity and as committing a crime against mankind and civilization

The island would be totally flattened and dead. They wouldn't want their country to look like that. So they would surrender.

That didn't stop Japan. They killed our innocent civilians so we were just repaying the favor. It was most effective for us because we didn't lose any troops in the bombing.

Japan started the war by bombing a military base in America. So to retaliate we're going to bomb their cities and kill civilians? That isn't going to make it any better.
