  • To the O.P.
    In Aug of 1945 the US dropped atomic bombs first on Nagasaki the Hiroshima Japan..about 3 days apart if I remember correctly. The bombs were dropped in hopes of securing a surrender by Japan. Which it did. Japan signed a surrender within a few days. We are the only country in the world to have purposefully used atomic weapons against humans. That fact has kept the rest of the world scared of us on some level for many, many years. The weapons we have now are much more sophisticated. The do not need a plane like the Enola Gay to drop them. The aftermath of Nagasaki and Hiroshima should be a madatory study point in school as far as I'm concerned. Don't concern yourself with those wiht poke fun...the only dumb quyestion is the one not asked.
