Response to Phillyindy (Original post)

Tue Aug 6, 2013, 02:24 PM

276. What are your thoughts on the firebombing of Tokyo?

Or the leveling of Dresden and most of Germany?

It isn't a justification, but it seems that as we get further away from the event, it is easier to Monday morning quarterback it.


None of us here are responsible for the decision, why people get so hostile about it is beyond me. It was a sick time in history all around. Japanese Internment camps are not our most shining moment, either.

But I promise you, in the race to be the tallest midget, the Allies won in that era. The acts that Japan, Germany, Stalin, and Eastern Bloc Nazi-sympathizers committed were atrocious.
