Hiroshima the City that had to Die

Viewed a documentary on Hiroshima last night (7/4/2018), now playing on Netflix. Within a year of atomic bomb's encounter with this Japanese city nearly 190,000 had died from various effects of the bomb. Japanese high command were given many options to stop the war, yet they remained steadfast in their resolve to win. This documentary covers the preparation for the bombing by the USA, the release of the bomb on the city and the immediate aftermath. Highly educational yet extremely depressing. No doubt both the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings shortened the war saving untold numbers of American lives and those of the enemy too. Morality of nuclear weapons has subsequently come into question, as it should. Your thoughts.
