Yes. Remember that it was war. Japan had attacked U.S. interests in Pearl Harbor, had taken control of most of the pacific islands, ruthlessly attacked the people of China and had openly expressed their belief that because of our genetic "impurity", the people of the United States would not be able to endure the kind of war that the United States would see from the Japanese military. Although Japan's attempts to attack the mainland USA were effectively defeated, Japanese leaders did succeed in one incident of killing U.S. children by putting bombs on small weather baloons. After the U.S. and our allies had defeated Japanese troops on all of the other Pacific Islands, the Japanese imperial leadership insisted on maintaining complete control over the government. The USA and our allies decided that the only way to avoid such further umprovoked attacks was to force Japan into surrender. Japan had prepared every citizen to fight back an invasion of Japan using conventional forces. Bombing was the only way to stop the agression of Japanese leaders. Japanese nobility felt that they were divinly appointed to the position and that their God would not only help them in their endeavor but that it was their responsibility to take over all of the Pacific Islands.
