Re: pilot who dropped A bomb died.
Hiroshima was a military target and it was home not only to Civilians but 2 major Land Battalions and many Military Heavy Arms Factory.

Well, but anyway, its war and the consequences are expected. If a country's politicians decided to drag the whole country to war, both Soldiers AND Civilians will suffer. There's no such thing exactly as a 'fair game' or 'fair target' in reality.
As for dropping the A-Bomb into the sea, well, no one at that time would know what happen (except for an ubber large explosion) thus US simply singled out a single city to show what 1 single bomb can do to a city - flatten it in 3secs without needing to do Carpet Fire Bombing.
Of cos, supposedly even their own Allied POWs held in Hiroshima & Nagasaki were vapourised unfortunately.
