comment Why did the US drop nuclear bombs on a weakened Japan?
I think something that is overlooked that we see in spades today's conflicts is that of an active insurgency. Japan, even if it wasn't in a position to effectively fend off an invasion of the island by Allied Forces still had enough spite left in it's military and ruling classes to effectively start and conduct a successful insurgency. Dropping the bomb twice crushed that hope, giving an absolute answer to any idea smacking of resistance. The hidden message could always be touted that if fighting an insurgency was becoming too costly, the Allies could simply leave and nuke the island.
