In 1945 the United States made a history making decision to drop atomic weapons on Japan, which essentially ended United States involvement in World War II. The decision to use these types of weapons has been put under a great deal of scrutiny as to its true necessity and its misery it inflected.

Which raises the question of, If the United States had the opportunity would they do it again?
