American Success Through Invention and Military Superiority

Allied Intentions

At this conference the Allies expressed that the did not want to destroy the people of the Axis nations, but destroy "The philosophy based on the conquest and subjugation of other peoples."

At the meeting of AllIed nations at Casablanca Delano Roosevelt announced that they aimed to gain "The unconditional surrender of Germany, Italy, and Japan."  The Allies would insist on unconditional surrender to show their determination to win, and to discourage and other countries, especially the Soviet Union, from making a treaty with Germany or any of the Axis nations.  This unconditional surrender would also be advertised to influence American and British public opinion, to show that this war was being fought between two ways of life that could not coexist.  

Justifications for the Bombs Usage:

Everyone involved in the Manhattan project was thrilled about the results at Trinity, for this would mean an end to the war and saving thousands of lives both American and non-American for several reasons.  The Fire bombing of Tokyo, for example, killed thousands more than those dead from the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, and required only one B-29 to deploy, meaning no American casualties.  Also, the projected number of casualties in case of an American invasion of Japan (1 million) on both sides far exceeded the death toll of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  When questioned on the righteousness of the bombs, Army Officials and politicians explain that the two cities would have been firebombed anyway, but these bombs were more effective and getting Japanese politicians attention.  This was proven the case, for after Hiroshima was bombed on August 6th, and Nagasaki on August 9th, Japan surrendered within a matter of days.  On August 14th, Emperor Hirohito announced to Japan that he intended to surrender on behalf of the country, and so the war came to an end on September 2nd, 1945.  The bombs were also thought to have been effective on the basis that the bomb dropped on Nagasaki landed between the Mitsubishi Steel Company and the Arms Works, and Hiroshima was a major port and military base.
