Pearl Harbor was the event that brought the United States into World War II in 1941. Before the Japanese attacked the United States, the USA was trying to stay isolated and away from the war. The United States just wanted to mind their own business and stay out of the war. After the Japanese attacked the United States declared war on Japan. The fight was on and seemingly the only way to end the war was to kill everyone in Japan. There were kamikazes committing suicide for their emperor who was treated like a god. If they would go that far it seemed like there would be no end. Some people may see the dropping of the atomic bomb as an act of revenge but I see it as the lesser of two evils. Either the war rages on an many lives are lost or a few new bombs are dropped on Japan which did ruin many lives and families but in the end less lives were lost, most notably the United States soldiers which did not have to invade Japan.
