For: It was the fastest way to end the war with Japan which

saved many allied lives. Also, here's a little published fact.

Japan's attempt to launch a Nuclear (yes Nuclear) attack on the

United States was eminent and therefore, a speedy end to the war

was needed. Against: We would have beaten Japan anyway and so there

was no need to use such a devastating method.
