The war in Japan has escalated to uncontrollable levels killing millions of people. Living in constant war is destructive to the economy and people’s lives as well. It is proper and prudent that a solution be sought to end this predicament. This will bring about peace and prosperity among the nations fostering development and growth of the economy. A difficult decision has to be made in order to save millions of lives despite the challenges. The nuclear bomb is quite an intense device that is destructive in nature.
The war that is currently ongoing is taking a toll in Japan and the United States. This calls for an urgent solution that will put a stop to the fighting that is still taking place. The Japanese government refuted talks by the government of America to stop the war. This clearly required that the government provides a long lasting solution to finally end the menace. It is ethical and moral to ensure that people’s lives are not endangered and that peace prevails. To do this will require the making of tough decisions that might be unfavorable but will yield solutions to the ever growing catastrophe.
The Japanese were ready to surrender but they wanted to attach conditions against their decisions. Conditions will just prolong the war since nothing justifies the fighting that has been taking place for over four years. It is a moral dilemma to resort to launching a bomb in Japan, putting into consideration the number of lives that will be lost. Among the citizens of Japan there are those who are innocent of the activities taking place, but as it occurs they might suffer as a result of the actions of their country. Children are oblivious of the prevailing war and remain to be innocent. Evacuating the innocent from the country before dropping the bomb would be the noble thing to do but as much as it is my desire to do that it is as well impossible.
Countries co-existing in peace and harmony would prevent blood from being shed and foster a peaceful lifestyle among the citizens. Decision making is a crucial role that every president is faced with in the course of serving the people. Decisions made reflect on the capabilities of the president as a person and as a leader. I being the president in the day to day running of the country I am faced with difficult choices that I have to make for the benefit of the country. I was put in office by the citizens and I am thus required to meet their expectations. I took an oath promising to be a better leader to my people. This means that the interests of the citizens should come first before my personal interests. This is the challenge that I ought to overcome.
This is the most difficult decision I have had to encounter, the choice of whether to drop the atomic bomb or not. The Japanese military was refusing to end the fight despite the soldiers and civilians becoming weary from four years of continuous war. It is important to evaluate the negative and positive effects of dropping the bomb. It so justifiable since it will put an end to the war despite it having negative effects to the citizens of Japan. The outcome of the attack will give a clear picture of how important it was to make such a decision.
The government is impressed on the effort portrayed by our soldiers. They have in the four years dedicated their efforts to try putting an end to the fight which is a noble gesture to serving their country. As we are embarking on this tough decisions we are called upon to remain united and continue joining forces to ensure that peace prevails. The decisions made has surpassed all odds in an effort to making it safer for the two countries to work together in unity. I make this decision as the president of America and not as an individual I therefore call upon everyone to accord me the support needed to serving my country better.
