Brooke Klinger Persuasive Essay Atomic Bomb I think president Truman made a good decision to drop the atomic bomb. Dropping the bomb had many benefits for the United States. While there were many other options that Truman had could’ve done he chose dropping the bomb which I would have been in favor for. There were other decisions Truman could have made when deciding what next step he should take in the war, especially trying to stop the Axis Powers. One possible option was invading Japan, if the United States would’ve done this it would have cost them a lot. There would have been a lot of casualties, mostly American citizens that fought in the war, it was predicted that around 500,000 casualties would have came from it. Another issue that Americans feared was that Japan would have went by there beliefs and fought until death. But some pros of invading Japan would have been that we would have not had to use the atomic bomb and introducing the world to a new type of warfare which would be nuclear warfare. Another option Truman had was for him to try to get the Soviet Union to declare war on Japan. If this would have happened then communism would have spread which the United States did not support or follow. A pro to having the Soviet Union declare war on Japan was that the Soviet Union and the United States would both be going against Japan and they could team up.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
