I do think that Japanese expansion into China and its military build up might have convinced someone that ignoring Japan might not be a good idea. As far as the Bomb...sorry they were warned. It took two to convince the Japanese they were screwed..and to just plain give up...my old man fought in the Pacific and saw the cruelty of the Japanese. He jumped on the retaking of Corregidor...look it up and how many prisoners were taken..he fought in Southeast asis against Japanese that had turned to cannibalism on any US soldier they could grab or kill or recover a body...I have no sympathy for the second bomb if it ended that damn war..
