Was killing millions of jews, gypsies & ethnic minorities "Morally Justifiable"? in Hitlers opinion it was, and the 3rd Reich was to last for a 1000 years. This man was bent on destruction to the point where he destroyed even himself. I have visited the war memorials of Aushwitz & Birkenan in Poland, believe me it's no disneyland and hard to believe over 2 million deaths occured all in one place. The race for A-Bomb was at hand and the only way to brake & defeat the Axis Powers was by using them on Japan. Germany had already surrendered by the time the Russian & Allies took over Berlin. Japan was still unconquered! the A-bomb spelled Japans eniment defeat & unconditional Surrender to the U.S. & Allied Forces, this in turn ushered in a nuclear age of peace treaties with Japan and the the dividing of Germany & Europe between the Russians, Americans and it's Allies. Finally in my opinion Fate & destiny play'd a definite role in were which country was to employ the 1st A-Bombs.

*Morally justifiable by the Government responsible for dropping the bombs, unmoral & unjustifiable by it's victims. Let's turn the tables around for the sake of "what If" reasoning, what if??? the Japanese and Germans had developed the A-bomb before the Americansdid. What cities would have been targeted and destroyed then*., Paris, London, Warsaw, Kracow, San Fransisco, Seattle, Los Angeles,Ca. etc,etc.
