instead of 7 million Americans (and other allied nations including UK which would have participated in the invasion, I'll post the maps of the plans latter today if anyone is interested) dying and 20 million plus Japanese going into the meat grinder - 400,000 Japanese (many Catholics sadly) was considered a better "sacrifice".   I agree.

edit: I agree assuming unconditional surrender was the only option, which as far as the US administration was concerned it was for better or worse.
