The Rewriting of History!

How easily people on social media seem to forget and rewrite history.  

Dropping the atomic bomb was the right thing to do because it ended World War II in the Pacific.

During the Island Hopping Campaign the Japanese made the allies pay for every single inch of territory at the cost of thousands of casualties. During the Battle of Okinawa the Japanese went to extreme measures to defend the island with wave after wave of kamikaze attacks and even sacrificing the pride of their fleet, the battleship Yamato.

The planned invasion of Japan, Operation Downfall, was scheduled to begin in the Fall of 1945. All of Japan was mobilized to fight a total war against the allied invasion. Women and children were being trained to kill allied soldiers with bamboo spears. Japan's government was determined to fight the allies to the death.

President Truman's decision to drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki was the right decision because it ended World War II in the Pacific and saved the lives of hundreds of thousands, possibly millions of allied soldiers and millions of Japanese.
