37. First of all the allies were hardly saints
Edited on Mon Aug-28-06 01:00 PM by Kickoutthejams23
Killing women and children in the hundreds of thousands for a start. But a lot of these why didn't they bomb the camps threads are hooey. If the allies could bombs landed within say 500 yards of their target it was practically considered a direct hit. The concept they could bomb just the fences and guard towers borders on insane (even today it would be quite a feat)Also the allies were primarily interested in defeating Germany. Destroying non-productive German areas was simply not a priority. keep in mind the allies knowingly started firestorms to kill hundreds of thousands of civilians. (Dresden, Tokyo et all) Saving a thousands of Germans and Poles was not on their priority list.

Sure they could have/should have done more. But they didn't. Sure purposely incinerating hundreds of thousands of woman and children is wrong. But we had a war to win.

What this has to do with a dangerous so to be nuclear religious nut running Iran is beyond me.
