the atomic bomb did a lot of damage to the city Hiroshima and killed 14000 people

Phisically: instant vaporization of all combustable and liquid materials near "ground zero". Politically: the emperor and his generals refused to surrender following the first bomb blast, telling their people that the Americans only had one. After the second bomb the Emperor still didn't want to surrender, but finally agreed. Even then, they wanted to negotiate for the best terms of surrender rather than be concerned about the death of their citizens. The dropping of the atomic bomb initiated vaporization at an instant (turning to carbon), total devastation through Hiroshima and Nagasaki and caused radiation to kill many many more people who died of radiation poison or cancer Radiation for a long period of time until now since World War 2 the day of dropping atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Abnormal babies were frequent in the area near the atom bomb had blast. Cancer rates had gone higher in these areas.
