Obama’s visit to Hiroshima – Was US justified to drop the bombs on Hiroshima/ Education University - 00:59:00 2016-05-30
On Monday's Backchat, was the United States right to drop atom bombs on Japan? Obama has visited Hiroshima, the first city attacked by a nuclear weapon in August 1945. There were perhaps 140,000 casualties. Ever since there has been controversy over the decision. What do you think? Did it save allied lives? Would Japan have surrendered anyway? Did the scale and horror of the event, and the largely civilian target make it a war crime? If the first bomb was justified, what about the second on Nagasaki?
