R/ Mr. President,
I hope you will be in good spirits. I am writing this letter to you in order to discuss about something extremely important, considering the sensitivity of the circumstances currently going on. SI have been observing the recent situations very closely and as you know, I have been providing many pieces of advice to you via mail or sometimes in person, in order to reduce the crucially of the situation as much possible as I can. But this time I have heard a rumor which has shaken me to the inside. I have heard that the government of the United States of America is planning to declare an atomic war against Japan.
Mr., President, I am truly aware of the current crucial situations going on. I completely understand that the circumstances have become quite tense after the Japanese attack on our Navy fleet in Pearl Harbor, and I strongly condemn it (Toland). Although the intention of the Japanese government and the Axis forces was to disable the armed forces of the United States and break the spirit of the America people, it was a complete coward and heinous act. I understand precisely that the World War II is in full swing and the axis forces are trying to crush us in various ways and the Pearl Harbor attack was a part of this illogical and senseless mission (Humphreys). I am really very sorry to hear about that 2403 casualties that happened as the result of
Despite all of this, I would strongly recommend you not to use an atomic bomb against Japan. It is not about Japan or America, it is about humanity. I am just thinking about humanity at an overall level when I say this. The people who lost their lives in Pearl Harbor were my people, they were my pride, and my heart truly bleeds for them, but this does not mean that we initiate more killings. Whether it is done in the United States or in Japan, destruction is destruction.
We all know how much capable an atomic bomb is to bring destruction as a mass level. If we drop the atomic bomb at any city of Japan, it will devastate the whole city and it does not end here. The destruction may go far beyond that. It can affect the other areas as well, even the far off places. Moreover, nuclear bombing technology is still in testing phases; no one knows how much destruction a single atomic bomb can cause. We lost 2403 souls, but we can never predict that the death toll as a result of a nuclear attack may go to thousands, even millions. And the after-effects of the atomic bomb are not just restricted to that specific time frame, they travel till generations (Kamiya). My point is that whether the people die here or there, it is only the humanity that suffers. It will be only a loss to humanity. And after all, an eye for an eye will make the whole world blind.
In the end, I would like to again remind you that the whole American nation, including me, trusts you and your wisdom, and look towards you for the progress, prosperity, and safety of this nation. We hope that you will take the most appropriate decision that will bring the most benefit or at least destructive for the whole world or especially the American nation, at this critical time.
