I don't see anything as of yet saying he "wanted" to drop the bomb though I did find a funny quote he is credited with that goes like this.

'Summer 1945: in Manila to plan invasions of Japan in October, 1945. Is stunned when the atomic bomb ends the war abruptly, quoted that "this apparatus will make men like me obsolete". '

I tell you what happened.....during the Korean War we had the north Koreans pushed up against a resivour. Now during Christmas the Chineas new that we celebrate Christmas and attacked us. After some fighting we surrouned them and MacArthur said that if China attacked us again that he would drop 3 H-Bombs on 3 major chinease citys. Prez Truman didnt allow that thow....
