The population of Japan (proper) is about 128 million, which is thefigure from the census of 2010. However, a lower estimate of about126.6 million was promulgated in 2012. This does not mean that thepopulation decreased, but that different figures were used in thecomputation. The Japanese official …monthly estimate for March 2013 was127,360,000. That is about the average of the other figures. ( Full Answer )

There was i believe a short war between them when russia invaded japan through occupied mongolia, the US then dropped the bomb on hiroshima and nagasaki a few months later, so it was kind of irrelevant to the war.
Because Japan did not have the resources or the industrial capacity to continue fighting. True, Japan would have been halted by shrinking materials....eventually. However, the dropping of the atomic bomb, both in Hiroshima & Nagasaki brought Japan to it's knees. A third location was hinted at, but… never bombed. It must be said that prior to the use of the atomic bomb. Many members of the Diet (governing body) were advocating ending the war. ( Full Answer )

USSR had signed an agreement with the US to enter the Pacific war against Japan in order to get land deals (some of Japan's islands) and loans. The US honored most of the agreement even though US decided to drop the bombs. Russia still owns some of these islands.. Stalin found out about the A bomb …in 1943 and saw the specs from his spies at Los Alamos at this time. He knew about the bomb when he signed the agreement with US. Note: Far earlier than Rosenberg involvement. ( Full Answer )
Most officers did not know in advance of the atomic bombs, andwould not have understood their power if they had known. They couldnot be told to preserve the highly secret bomb program fromexposure, so the bulk of officers continued to operate as if thewar had to be carried on and won by conventional… means. There weretwo amphibious landings already in the plans for the Home Islandsof Japan, Operation Olympic to land on Kyushu in October, 1945, andOperation Coronet to hit the beach near Tokyo in March, 1946. Itwas estimated that American casualties alone might reach onemillion, and it was assumed that all the Japanese would have to bekilled, given the recent experience on Iwo Jima and Okinawa, andthe suicide of Japanese civilians on Saipan in the summer of 1944(first killing their own children). The Japanese defense ministrywas arming women with bamboo spears and hand grenades and trainingthem for suicide attacks, imbuing them with the idea of taking atleast one American with them. Alternatively, assuming the Americanpeople would have put up with an indefinite extension of the war,and would not have insisted that the nation that made the sneakattack on Pearl Harbor and whose officers liked to have beheadingcontests with their Samurai swords and to dine on the livers ofPOWs be absolutely crushed, a close naval blockade could have beenattempted, but there's no guarantee that this would have everbrought the Japanese to surrender. Its more likely that theJapanese would rather have seen mass starvation of the civilianpopulation down to levels that could be kept alive on whateveragriculture they could manage in the Home Islands, and continued tohold out - provided the Russians allowed that to go on. TheRussians had agreed at Yalta to (finally!) enter the war againstJapan (and perhaps avenge their stinging defeat in theRusso-Japanese War of 1905) within 90 days after the defeat of NaziGermany, which turned out to be August 7, the day after the atomicbomb dropped on Hiroshima. Thus the Russians only had a week, butstill managed to grab Sakhalin Island, and would most assuredlyhave taken more, and if given time would probably have happilyoverrun all of Japan. In 1983 a Korean Air Lines 747 went offcourse and overflew Sakhalin Island, which the Russians had jammedfull of military installations. The Russians scrambled fighter jetsand shot down the civilian airliner, killing nearly 300 people. ( Full Answer )

Japan had a policy of Never Surrender No Matter what. It was necessary first to burn Japan cities from the air, and then to drop 2 atomic bombs in order to force Japan to surrender. If Japan had been invaded in November 1945, it probably would have cost 1 Million Allied lives, and 2 Million Japanese… lives! Bombing Japan and getting them to surrender saved far more lives than it killed. ( Full Answer )

Second improved answer: War historians are not puzzled by thequestion. Although the Soviets were commonly called one of our"Allies", that is not entirely true. The Soviets (Stalin) werereally only co-belligerents fighting against German, Italy, Finland& other European Axis nations, and not Japan. St…alin's prioritywas defeating Hitler (after he was attacked in June 1941) &occupying Eastern Europe. Japan decided in 1941 not to attackStalin & help Hitler. This Japanese decision doomed Germany& Japan, and freed Stalin to concentrate on the European War.It also allowed Stalin to receive large amounts of American aidfrom Canadian & US West Coast ports directly to Vladivostok,Siberia. Because these American made ships had Soviet flags onthem, the Japanese were forced to allow this shipping to passthrough their areas of control (North Pacific Ocean) on toVladivostok unmolested. . After Germany was defeated in May 1945, then Stalin was free(unknown to Japan) to Declare War on Japan at a time of hischoosing. Stalin was content to allow the Americans, British &Commonwealth forces to absorb large casualties in the meantimewithout helping. He had plans to take Manchuria, Korea & Japanat the last minute, while allowing the others to do most of thefighting & dying. It was the first use of the Atomic Bomb thattriggered Stalin into immediate action. He was afraid of missingout on the conquest, loot & plunder if Japan surrendered toosoon. ( Full Answer )
