It's a beautiful morning on the the day of August 6, 1945 in the Japanese city of Hiroshima. People are just starting to stir, going on with their normal routines. Little did they know that everything was about to change. At the assigned time of 8:15, the first nuclear war head to be used for combat was dropped on the city. There is a slow, faint whistle, and before anyone knows what happened, a bright, impenetrable goes across the the sky. The mushroom grows, and the chaos is just beginning. Was this necessary? Was there any other way to end the war, or were or officials looking after the well being of Americans? The best place to start is by seeing the perspective of the scientists who developed the bombs; them being the only people who really understood the power of this new global terror. In a letter to President Franklin D. Roosevelt from Albert Einstein, the man who's findings more or less found the atomic bomb, himself recommended it's making. After the war however, during an interview with Linus Pauling, is quoted as saying. "I made one great mistake in my life, when I signed the letter to President Roosevelt recommending that atom bombs be made; but there was some justification - the danger that the Germans would make them.'" On top of that, many leading scientists after the war felt that the United Nations should be the ones possess the bombs, and only use them in the attempt to deter conflict. To many others, even ones who were involved in the making, thought it shouldn't be used, knowing the dangerous effects. The next step is to see what the other options to how the war could have ended. There are three different way commonly recognized as have been considered: The Atomic Bomb, Mass Invasion, and Diplomatics. The mass invasion was likely to have secede, but it had a grim estimate at the total loss of 1 million US lives. Diplomatics may have seemed the best, and least violent, option, but the Japanese were relentless. If they were told to, they would have fought the battle until their backs touched the Chinese coast. They were not going to…

World War II
War is one of the most tragic things in our world today. In the 20th century there were two huge wars in World War I and World War II, which I will be discussing. I believe that the world is a tinderbox and it takes the right people or actions to set it off and cause a World War.
