The next day, the US dropped the second bomb. Coincidence? Really?

It probably had something to do with it, although, I can point to nothing other the coincidence to make the case.

In any case, I'm happy Japan didn't fall into Soviet hands like we allowed to happen with Korea. Dare I say many more people have died in Korea over that mistake than any number of Atomic bombs. But there will always be leftists who think otherwise and lament that the Soviet model could not spread throughout South East Asia.
