Oshima bombing justifiable? AGAINST: "The skin was burned off some of them and was hanging from their hands from their chins."- eye witness account by a 5-year-old girl "In Hiroshima, 30 days later, people who were not injured in the bombing are still dying mysteriously and horribly from an unknown something which I can only describe as the atomic plague" Admiral William Leahy, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff opposed the use of the bomb because it killed civilians indiscriminately.

Although many believe that President Truman's decision to drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki was necessary in order to halt more bloodshed, over time, it is evident that instead of being a weapon of peace, "Little Boy" was in fact a terrible bomb that wreaked havoc upon the Japanese civilians for decades.

Though many try to justify the use of the bomb with the argument that it reduced Japan's military might and resulted in their eventual surrender, the bomb was not an "Ideological weapon" and "Killed indiscriminately", meaning that the bomb did not pick and choose its targets, which in this case would have been military personnel in the army bases in Hiroshima.
