Foreign Affairs, 35(2), 334–353.Historical Context: August 6th, 1945, the United States had dropped an atomic bomb. Today many argue over whether the US should have taken such a drastic measure. Was it entirely necessary that we drop such a devastating weapon. President Truman had decided to drop the Atomic bomb to end the war and save as many lives as possible.The United States will always try to avoid the loss of American civilians at all costs, even if that means taking lives of another countries innocent civilians. There still are many questions posed to the US behind the decision to drop the atomic bombs.
