== == Canada was involved in the atom bomb building operation, by supplying the radio active material that was needed to create the fisson reaction that sets off the explosion of the device. The material came from a mine located at Chalk River, Ontario. As far as the political decision was concerned, to use the bombs, NO we were not consulted by the Americans. They simply went ahead and did it.

Some pros about dropping the atomic bombs on Japan was that the Allies wouldn't have to risk millions of lives during an invasion of Japan itself, a country that would never surrender.

Japan refused to surrender, because, it was against their national policy to surrender. Pres. Truman ordered the dropping of two atomic bombs and Japan surrendered. It was either two atomic bombs or invasion of Japan. Invasion of Japan would have made the war last another year, and killed a lot more people than the atomic bombs did.

An option was to send troops to the mainland but that option was not better than dropping the bombs.

The dropping of the two atomic bombs and the armed forces of Russia being near Japan motivated the Emperor of Japan to finally surrender. The Emperor realized that his country could be annihilated into oblivion if the Allied Forces invaded Japan. He had no idea the US had no more atomic bombs, but he did assume it.

The dropping of atomic bombs on Japan caused massive death and destruction in the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and also resulted in a surrender being offered by Emperor Hirohito, bringing about an immediate end to the war.

Whether dropping the atomic bomb to end WW2 was the right thing to do is a matter of opinion. Some people will say it was and others will say it was not.

Reasons to support the dropping of the atomic bomb on Japan include that it was the most viable way to force the Japanese to surrender. Also that the war would end faster by doing so, and that it would claim fewer lives than an invasion.
