Best Answer

The targets chosen were not military targets. In fact, strictly military targets were not chosen because of the possibility of missing a small military target not surrounded by a large urban area. The targets available to General Carl Spaatz were all cities with large civilian populations. Hiroshima, Kokura, Niigata and Nagasaki were the final choices for dropping the atomic bomb. All of which are large cities that were of reasonable military value. The debate comes in on whether the United States should have dropped the atomic bomb on a strictly military site and avoided the monstrous amount of civilian casualties.

Dropping the atomic bomb was a bad thing because it brought the Japanese to a very bad state and the radiation affected people into having poor babies.
