Since Warwick Davies didn't activate the bomb as soon as the Cybermen showed up, doesn't that make all the deaths his fault?
Either activating it right away would have left people behind (if they only transmat people around the emperor), or it would have brought partially-converted people onto the flagship. Either one would have resulted in deaths as well (quite possibly more of them).

This may be weak justification after-the-fact, but it seems like the least-bad outcome given the circumstances.
Besides, he was conflicted on the use of such weapons. While it seemed the ground troops could handle the situation, he gave the Doctor and Clara time to get the Cyber tech out of himself (the Doc) and the kids.
