Do your decisions involve the accounting for the possible good coming out of an immoral act. For example there are those that justify the Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagaski
Do you believe that the ‘the right action’ is the action which produces the best possible consequences"?

I think the bombing was wrong. I do however try to understand it from the perspective of the people living through the events at the time. It's easy for me to sit back and say it was wrong, I'm not living through WWII, my son isn't being drafted, my family members haven't died, I don't have the images of a destroyed Europe affecting my judgement. It was wrong, but it's easy to say it now. I can understand how fear could make it seem necessary at the time, I wouldn't have wanted to be dragged into a war with Japan either. It really would have felt like the end of the world.
