After the two bombs were dropped (one on Hiroshima) and one on (Nagasaki) the world was shocked to see the devastation and even today the genetic factors that the radiation caused the people of Japan can still show up in the gene pool. Many people considered this over-kill and thought fire bombs would have been just as effective. The Atomic bombs dropped on both Japanese cities was a good warning to Russia as to what the U.S. was capable of doing.
