The A-Bomb from Jornada del Muerto to Nagasaki

This paper criticizes the bombing of Nagasaki. It is written by an American from a non-American view point.

The writer of this paper puts forth the opinion against the use of the A-bomb against the Japanese cities at the end of World War Two. The writer states humanitarian and political reasons why these bombings did not serve the greater purpose of the United States in the long term.
“In the last sixty years many new discoveries and innovations have been made, but none has been more revolutionary or controversial than the Atomic Bomb. The Manhattan Project was the code name for the atomic bomb development during the World War II. The project allowed the United States to unlock the mysteries of the atom, but it also introduced the most destructive weapon the world has ever known.(Miguel A. Bracchini) For the better part of a century the world has feared that the one day it would come to an all out nuclear war. That fear is justly so, because if such a war would ever occur no one would survive. For this reason we should try harder for peace, especially in a time when we have the power to destroy the earth several times over with the push of a button.”
