Yeah uh, we didn't have to drop two atomic bombs on their civilians though to get them to surrender. But ANY targetting of non-combatants is a war crime. It's that simple.

Yes because I just made those up. Out of nothing. You caught me.

The sources are listed in this article:

It saved time, but certainly did NOT save lives and money. Japan was GOING TO SURRENDER ANYWAY. Just waiting for them to surrender from the internal and external pressures placed on Japan would have saved the most lives and money.
