Is the US atom bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki underanalysed?

Would you be able to do it if it meant NOT killing millions later on?After all, more Japanese were killed in the firebombing of the big cities by USAAF B-29s under a policy of dropping incendiaries instigated by Curtis E. LeMay than were killed both during and after the A-bomb blasts.

GMAT - Preparation

No need to spend a grand on preparation. Make do with a Kaplan test preparation book. They come with software so that you can simulate the test as on a PC. I found it to be very good. They also have lots of examples which will help you practice.

<t>QuoteOriginally posted by: AdvaitaMedia around the world takes no remorse at these bombings at all. Why? Why couldn't Truman have dropped the bomb on an 0-population area in view of the top Japanese generals? Was too much at stake to not even contact the generals? (Reportedly Truman spent the who...

He said that "He IS a keen sportsman" and "He IS 19 years old" etc etc.I wonder if he is still alive, and that is how they managed to...
