Bomb ended the war

AP Tokyo reports:
The Japanese defence minister, Fumio Kyuma, came under fire for saying the US atomic bombings of Japan during the second world war were inevitable. In a speech on Saturday, Mr Kyuma said: "I understand that the bombing ended the war, and I think that it couldn't be helped."
He stated the obvious. Not only did the atomic bomb end the war, it saved millions of lives, kept Japan from Soviet domination, and helped keep the peace for 50 years.
