Correct, don't rape them and leave them alive, just kill them.

9 Tungchow Mutiny

Chinese soldier recruited by Japan later switched sides, they attacked, kill, and rape Japanese women and the death toll were 280 - CerealGuy

10 Hiroshima and Nagasaki Bombings

To be honest, many lives were probably saved by these two bombs as they did bring the war to an end.. I do think though that these are the most horrendous weapons ever devised. As bad in my opinion was the Americans fire bombing the Japanese cities with their B-29 bombers.Thousands upon thousands of people were killed and this is usually left out of WW2 documentaries (most of which are American).

Must agree that these bombings, targeting civilian populations, saw the U.S. sinking to the level of Japan's countless atrocities.
But in the end, total war is TOTAL war.
However, historians and pundits consistently parrot the false choice between bombing, and an invasion that may well have seen casualties of immense proportions.
The obvious third choice is never considered; that of blockade. It doubtless would have produced the desired result; it just would have taken a bit longer.
