Was Dropping the Bomb the Moral Thing to Do? [Video]

On August 6 and August 9,1945, the United States dropped atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, respectively, to end WWII. 67 years later that decision is still controversial. Setting aside the dubious claim that Truman approved their use as a tactic in the emerging Cold War with the Soviet Union, the question remains as to whether their use was the right thing to do. Father Wilson Miscamble, Professor of History at Notre Dame, on behalf of Prager University, tries to argue the case for dropping the bomb.

Are you convinced?
