Why didn't America also nuke the nazis?

I mean if you're gonna nuke someone, why not Hitler? They could have ended the war way sooner.

Also pretend radiation in that area and bad side effects of nukes don't matter to you in the context of this question. I'm just talking about efficiency wise. And they were sort of on a time limit. I could see them doing it if Russia was losing.

    They were not white? WTF

    The real reason they nuked Japan is they figured out the expenses, how many lives they would have lost, and how long it would have took to get Japan to submit to an unconditional surrender. Also, the US figured that Japan would have to be driven to the brink of extinction before they would surrender.

    Also, if you look back at Germany, it was the USSR that invaded and conquered Berlin. All the US did was weaken and tax Germany to the point they couldn't fight. IMO, the US did make a lot of progress while they were there and if the USSR had been just a few months behind, the Alliance might have captured Berlin before the USSR did.

    The european war was over before the first atomic bomb was dropped. There were also many in the US who didn't believe it would work so no one was counting on it until it actually happened.

    Usable nuclear weapons hadn't been built by the time the Nazis capitulated.

    The easy answer is they were White not Japanese but there is a secret dimension to it: The Nazi space programme. The final battle against the Nazis was carried after the official fall of Germany itself to Neuschwabbenland in Antarctica where Admiral Richard Byrd finally won a decisive victory for the US. The rich elite of America wanted to keep the superiour technology for themselves while tricking the American people into continuing to buy the oil and coal they owned and still do, and also to hold back the superiour flying saucer technology for themselves. Truman expunged the war crimes of the 11,000 Nazi personnel, put Hermann Oberth in charge at the Pentagon and Werner von Braun established Jet Propulsion Lab and SS Colonel Kurt Debus established the astronaut programme at NASA. For over sixty years they have number one charged you for the inferiour technology and made you get all excited about paying billions to shoot simple rockets up into space, while laughing at you behind your backs, and number two held back from you cold fusion and the flying saucers pretending they were UFOs from aliens and playing both sides off, ridiculing the UFO believers and making braying jackasses out of the unbelievers. You foot the bill and now will swallow the 65,000 to 70,000 coal miners being the majority of Americans because the Fat Boy owns the coal mining profits.

    The Manhattan Project (created to build an atomic bomb) began in 1942 in the United States. It was known that Germany was also trying to create an atomic bomb. There was some thought by the Americans that the atomic bomb could be used against Germany, but was rejected.
