In principle, U.S. should drop the atomic bombs on Japan even the second bombs. In my point of view, U.S. overseen the overall military environment in WWII, she needs to grasp this chance to show off her military ability & tried to resist the ambition of Soviet Union at the moment . Anyhow, the fateful decision to use nuclear weapons on Japan was controversial even at the time, & the explanations for & motives behind that decision remain a subject of controversy 2 generations after the fact.
Now let us begin with the salient facts that are beyond dispute:
Initially, the sole motivation behind the American effort to build a nuclear weapon (the “Manhattan Project” ) was the fear that Germany’s nuclear expertise would be utilized by Hitler to build an atomic bomb for Germany. Had they managed to do so, they could have used it to destroy Britain & Soviet Union, & eventually threaten the U.S. itself. (In fact, German atomic bomb research never came close to success, but this did not become clear until after the war was over).
By contrast, everyone understood that Japan, with its much weaker scientific & industrial base, represented no conceivable nuclear threat.
By the time the Manhattan Project was near to producing a prototype atomic bomb in late 1944, a year of unexpected victories by Red Army on eastern front had sapped the ability of the Wehrmacht to resist Allied advances in the West. As the winter went by, it began to seem increasingly likely that Germany would be defeated before the atomic bomb was ready for use. In fact, the final collapse of Nazi Germany occurred two months before the first atomic bomb prototype was tested at Alamogordo.
For this reason, a number of atomic scientists & even a few governmental officials began to question the wisdom of proceeding with the bomb project, & many more began to question the need to use it to defeat the remaining Axis power, Japan. Many held these views quite vehemently......(To be cont. on sup./com. field)

.......After the German surrender, a group of scientists led by Leo Szilard and Josef Rotblat quit the project altogether, and many more signed petitions to the President that it never be used.

~ There remained only two possible strategic uses for the atomic bomb: to hasten the defeat of Japan, and – by demonstrating American willingness to use it – dissuade Stalin from exploiting the growing power and success of the Red Army to dominate post –Nazi Europe.

Since the 1960’s there was been an ongoing debate among historians as to which was the “real” motivation behind President Truman’s decision to use it on Japan.
