A-BOMB

The development of the A-bomb was positive for World War II but in ways it was negative to future generations. The A-bomb ended the war with the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which led to the surrender of Japan. This was the positive effect that the A-bomb had in the world. Although the surrender was very important, the creation of the A-bomb was a bad mistake. When the United States created and used the A bomb other nations became threatened and jealous of their technology. So other nations began to invest in this bomb and ever since then to become a super power you must possess atomic bombs. The United States brought on this new era of nuclear warfare that will never end

In my opinion the U.S. had many other options, they could have taken. Options that would seem logical would be diplomatic solution or maybe a land invasion. Even though a land invasion will produce many casualties, it will save lives that the a-bomb will destroy. After all it is a war and casualties are expected. By the U.S. using the A-bomb on

Nagasaki and Hiroshima, it basically told the world that using and atomic bomb on a populated city is okay.

Today the atomic bomb plays a huge part in country relations and war. Countries today strive for power and the capability of firing nuclear weapons is the symbol of power. Not only are countries striving to control nuclear weapons but terrorist groups and organized crime groups. If one of these bombs would happen to get into the wrong hands thousands of people could lose their lives. So even though the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki saved lives it is countered by the threat of atomic bombs on innocent people.

The creation of the a-bomb was a huge achievement for the U.S. but throughout history and in the future the a-bomb will do more damage than good. This device of destruction should have never been created but it has and know we must live with the fear of world destruction.
