WNU Editor: I asked my father on where was he when the bombs were dropped .... he was West of Berlin and near the American zone, and he heard it from German radio. He understood the importance of the bomb right away, and he knew that war as he knew it had now reached an even more destructive level. After the dropping of the second bomb, he was also relieved that the Japanese choose to surrender .... the Soviet Army was getting ready to participate in the war in Asia, and the last thing that my father wanted to do was to be involved in the land invasion of Japan.

It was the Soviet land invasion allied with the "bomb" that caused the Japanese surrender.

My Grandfather loathed nuclear weapons but supported the use of the bombs on Japan. He despised the Japanese for their treatment of Canadian POWs and the Chinese. "They had it coming" was his outlook on it. He had the same opinion on the Dresden bombing and the Soviet drive on Berlin. Like the Editor's Father, however, he had no interest in being part of an invasion of Japan.

My parents hated the Japanese they were all for the bombing, my Mum was really happy over the earthquake in 1992 in Japan she hated them till she died, they would never buy Japanese either.She never felt that way about the Germans.
