Because Japan had attacked U.S. territory, destroyed U.S. Navy ships, killed U.S. military personnel, attempted to take over all of the Pacific Islands, and when the Japanese military was obviously loosing the war they refused to surrender. They wanted to keep their military together so that they could make another run on the Pacific, and they wanted the Emperor of Japan to remain in power. After the Japanese military had been driven back to Japan and Japan was completely surrounded, the Japanese people were starving and lacking in many basic necessities, but the Emperor refused to surrender and believed that further military action would result in a better outcome for Japan. They were continuing to fight in hopes of better "terms", but the U.S. and other Allies demanded that Japan surrender unconditionally after their agression in the Pacific. It was estimated that 750,000 U.S. and other Allied military personnel would die if Japan was invaded. And that was before more of the Japanese military was moved to the proposed landing area. Conventional bombing of Japan caused incredible fires and loss of life. The atomic bombs used on Japan were the only way to quickly end the war and save lives of Allied personnel. It was understood that if the public ever found out that the U.S. had such a weapon and didn't use it and subsequently 750,000 to perhaps over 1,000,000 U.S. soldiers died, the U.S. population would be outraged, and justifiably so. People today often think that they can see a better outcome to the war with Japan. Unfortunately there were no good options, just options that weren't as bad as others. It was a terrible time and the U.S. and the other Allies just wanted it to end so that life could get back to normal... whatever that is.
