Thousands of them. No history here, move along!
The attack on Dresden took place just twelve weeks before the end of the war, causing many to ask if the brutality and scale of the raid was justified.
But for those still fighting there was no real idea of how close the end was.
With the Allies yet to cross the Rhine and the Germans still bombing London with V2 rockets, the British thought the war was anything but over.
Well people being people, I am used to hearing about the 'poor' people of Dresden, Hiroshima, etc. I just can't feel terribly sorry about it, when a country starts a war, it's always the people that pay the price. Ugly but true.
well you cant have a war and not have people die. just dont happen.
I guess I figure that the aggressor should get theirs. A bit hard-hearted, but ah well. Hitler thought it strategic to bomb London, so pay back came down the road.
My guess it was a good thing for Afghanistan that there weren't any tall buildings there.
well yeah the aggressor should get theirs alot harder! escalate the force to above what they were using
Especially when they are seriously out gunned. :shocked:
That was back when we still knew how to fight a war. You go all-out till the other side is destroyed or surrenders. You don't worry about slowing down or working on an exit strategy. Exit strategies are for losers. You plan to win. You decide how you'll exit AFTER you win. You kill people and blow things up until it's over. But we don't have the stomach for that anymore. Witness the media and leftist whining over the "highway of death". At the end of GW I the Air Force caught the rapists, murderers and looters that comprised the Republican Guard out in the open. They were attempting to flee in their own military vehicles as well as stolen civilian cars and trucks. We should have exterminated them to the last man. But we were being "civilized" and called our guys off before the job was done.
