The carpet bombings were in retaliation to the bombing of London and the razing of Coventry, by th ...

Nah ........  !

....bombing technology, back then was so inaccurate that to take out the appropriate target, the only way to ensure it's destruction was to carpet bomb....mostly, the Allies went after war production centres, all of which had, obviously, civilian populations nearby.


That is the media line and is inaccurate. It was to stop people working/manufacturing/food production and demoralize them. You do not use incendiary bombs near civilians unless looking for maximum casualties. Additionally, Dresden and some of the numerous other cities were not manufacturing cities and Dresdon was also full to bursting with refugees from the East ........

These bombings were callous acts to kill civilians  ........

Before you start swearing if you need a link I will supply if necessary .....   !!!

The military reasoning's?

In his diary in March 1969, Nixon’s chief of staff, HR Haldemann, note ...

The US were carpet bombing mad and in 1951 onwards they did the same in N. Korea  ..........

There was nothing left and millions of civilians dead  ..........

In Falujah in Iraq they again did the same and flattened 50% of the city before they went in  .......

Men, women and children none counted, and even the British felt sick at the carnage that had no remote face of humanity  .........
