- SpinozaLv 46 months agoFavorite Answer
I am student of Cold War and there are various reasons cited for it;
1.To save the precious lives from the scourge of war
2.To speedily end the War
3.America is a White country and first time challenged by Non-white nation.
4.To teach a lesson a lesson to non-european country and sending message to all asians.
5.In fact by the America wanted to bomb the Japan, its almost lost the war and its is on the verge of collapse and surrender, but still americans nuked Japan only to send message to USSR and others who are challenging its supremacy.
Thats it my friend.

The US didn't spend $2B on the Manhattan Project w/ no intention to use it.
The results speak for itself ... prior to the bomb, the Japanese insisted to resist until death. After the bomb, they surrendered.

Too end the war. Now think about it, since Japan showed every sign of being willing to fight to the last man....how many lives did using atomic bombs save?

To end the war quickly as possible. It was reported that the Japonese were going to arm civilians. And that could have dragged the war on for another year. The other allies wanted this over as well.
Germany was also targeted for bombing but they surrendered. Hitler died before bomb was finished.Source(s): Documentaries.

The "real" reason? As opposed to what? 75 years of published history?

To really test their atomic weapons in real time.

Americans were in a rush to save Britain from Nazi Germany, so they had to quickly defeat Japan before it's too late. The solution was to kill Japanese citizens to make Japan surrender quickly.
