For those who find reason and evidence difficult to listen to, here is the basic argument..
The Japanese had already surrendered defeat and were ready to accept the terms laid out by the U.S., but with the caveat that they get to keep their Emperor... "If you like your Emperor, you get to keep your Emperor."
The Japanese had essentially almost completely lost 67 of some of their largest cities and had massive bombing casualties in their capital city of Tokyo.
Keeping their Emperor, however, apparently wasn't acceptable to the U.S.A.
So the U.S. bombed Hiroshima, and before the Japanese even really knew what hit them, they bombed Nagasaki.
