This is a case and i need to identify which to theories apply to it out these three Kant's deontology, Mill's utilitarianism, and Hursthouse's virtue ethics.

In the summer of 1945, President Harry Truman ordered the atomic bombing of the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. At the time, many people denounced Truman as a war criminal for giving these orders. However, it is almost certain that these bombings did much to bring World War II to a close, and it is quite likely that the war would have carried on for at least another several years if no such action had been taken.
