    They were chosen because both cities had not been bombed and the military wanted to be able to see the full results.

    Perhaps. Maybe the fact that the US used this prevented a war with Russia. Even though there was a Cold War, things could possibly have been worse.

    Only the us had any. Japan had plans to dirtybomb San Francisco. Sure they would have done the same if they had the means.

    It ended the war. Japan was ready to fight for every inch of it's homeland.

    An invasion of Japan would have cost many more lives and many of those would have been civilians.

    Wasnt my point. Japan would have done it to us if they had the means first.

    ...if the US had a nuke fetish why didn't we use them in Korea?

    Or Vietnam? Perhaps because these were “shadow” wars against communism, specifically Russia. Could have carried a chance for higher retaliation?

    Actually I think MacArthur wanted to, but he was nixed for fear of widening the conflict with China and Soviet Union.
