Tuesday October 12  We took quizzes on Hiroshima and talked about the answers to the quiz.  Basically, the United States had two main motives for dropping the atomic  bomb on Hiroshima: 1.  To win the war and establish power of Japan 2.  To prevent Russian expansion into Asia The United States dropped the bomb in Japan instead of peacefully  demonstrating the power of the bomb because they weren’t completely sure  what the effects of the bomb would be. Also, dropping the bomb would be  much more effective in establishing the United States’ power.  In 1946, Winston Churchill made his “iron curtain” speech in reference to the  territorial boundaries between Western Europe and the Soviet puppet
