The Debate: Dropping of the Atomic Bomb

Each student is to write an essay that answers the question:
Taking into consideration both the immediate effects as well as the long-lasting effects of the Atomic Bomb, was President Truman and the United States justified in using this nuclear weapon to force Japanese surrender?
Your essay must include an intro paragraph in which your thesis (the answer to the essential question) is stated, three body paragraphs and a conclusion paragraph.  Be sure to use mutliple examples from your article as well as at least three other sources to justfy your reasoning.  It is important to cite your evidence.
