Why do people still perpetuate the story that the US dropping 2 nuclear bombs is what caused the Jap

When is reality the Japanese were already defeated and all of their ports were unusable and they were putting out feelers about surrendering?

Many of the top military brass at the time including Admiral Nimitz thought nuking them was unnecessar

Answers:

Because it makes U.S. look good.
They had a new toy, that had never been tested, plus they wanted to send Stalin an overwhelming message.
By playing with their new toy, both aims were achieved.
Thus mission accomplished.
Since history is scripted by the winners they could sell whatever version they wanted.

Most only learn by accident the truth.
And only then because U.S. was updating its nuclear toys and saying a nuclear war is winnable.
That tends to massively worry the non deranged.

The bomb even got a Hollywood makeover.

There would have been no second bomb if the Japanese had taken the surrender. Get your history right.

Because we were lied to since the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor .
Our men were set up . Our president knew of the coming attack at least a week ahead of time .
That's why our most important ships were sent out to sea .
Our president wanted us in the war . War is good for big business .
Look on youtube for " the bones of station H "...
The men / women on Pearl Harbor died in vain .
FYI :: Japan attacked Pearl Harbor only because we had been cutting off their oil supplies .
They never attacked the mainland , did they ?

You are assuming, as some generals may also have assumed, that the Japanese generals would surrender when they had been defeated.
But the top Japanese generals refused to surrender even though they were defeated. They wanted to fight "to the last man." This would have necessitated street-by-street fighting, possibly millions more deaths.
The two bombs saved countless lives on both sides.

Hardly.
The bulk of the Japaneses military was on mainland China and untouched by any bombing. japan had no plans to surrender anything.

You then have to look at what would have happened next.
(Amazing how ignorant you people always are on this)

The Soviet Union was set to invade in August. Japan would have been defeated and then split into a Democratic japan, run by us, and a "Peoples Republic of Japan" or North japan, run by the Communist government of the USSR.
Japan to day would look like Korea.

"Might is right".America has always been about overkill.Nothing ever done in moderation.Always over the top, bigger and "better".Reputation for being the "policemen","empire builders" etc. of world, just like monarchy we SUPPOSEDLY broke away from in 1700s.Maybe we did physically, but not necessarily ideologically.We are illegitimate "bastards", if you will, of the former British Empire which ALSO was famed for bullying rest of the world/trying to extend its empire across the globe with its military power/cruelty.Same bombastic,"over the top", domineering,British-inspired bullying trait is also seen in many Australians, who in some ways have similar personality to Americans,thus have historically been our allies.Like our forbears, they also oppressed THEIR indigenous peoples, Australian aborigines,as we did our Native Americans.Their national character also betrays their origin as "illegitimate" offspring of Great Britain, by virtue of being originally populated by its exiled convicts.

This is the orthodox school of thought. It is quite popular in the us. In fact, historiographically speaking, to go against puts you at the risk of being labelled a revisionist. In the usa it is not meant as a compliment.

They were atomic bombs not Nuclear.

education, mainly....

That of course is not factual. The US intended to drop only one bomb to demonstrate what we could do. That is why we waited four days until we dropped the second bomb - because the Japanese refused to surrender. Japanese women and children were being trained to fight soldiers with kitchen knives. The estimated casualties which would have resulted from an invasion of the Japanese mainland was one to two million people. My parents did not tell me I had a brother because they were sure he would be killed during the invasion. The atomic bomb was the best thing that ever happened to the Japanese.
