It remains a complex issue.
Some may disagree but it really is a very complex issue, and whether or not dropping the bombs was the best idea will never truely be answered. We know that the U.S. still would have won either way, but we have no idea how many lives would have been lost on both sides had we chose not to drop the bombs. Some suggest the Japanese were close to surrender anyways, while others suggest they would have fought to the bitter end, resulting in the loss of more lives before it was over.
I lean more towards the idea that dropping the bombs was a good idea, but it would be ignorant to suggest that the issue is that simplistic.
Thanks for posting the article. 67 years later and it still has to make you think.
