The Japanese weren't going to surrender (indeed, after Hirohito declared that Japan had surrendered, there was a coup, albeit a small one, and Japanese troops were still being flushed out in places like Guam). The decision to bomb was a military one and one which the rest of the world could live with if it meant the military government was overthrown, war criminals like Tojo were punished and Korea was freed.

So I guess you know more about this than Generals MacArthur and Eisenhower, Admirals Leahy and Zacharias, and Secretary of State Forrestal?  Or were they all just lying or ignorant in military matters?
