>>28450191 Lollercaust. Every single time somebody brings up the indiscriminate bombing of civilian targets in germany where more people were killed than in the nuclear attacks combined and the effects were just as or even more horrifying some body will bring up the 6 million jews.. Yeah that happened but since when does one evil justify another?
Read about how they intentionally created firestorms that burned people to crisp several street blocks away and you'll start to realize the true horrors of American and British actions during the war..
Russian warcrimes against German civilian population are mild compared to what the western allies did. Crimes against humanity is what they are.
>>28450280 Maybe you should have considered alliance with the US and Britain before starting a war. Victors write history, the defeated revise it and complain about it on anonymous taiwanese cave painting chalkboards
>>28450280 Yep, even more hilarious when you realise the extent of Germanys war crimes weren't even known until after the war. We destroyed huge population centres indiscriminately, even purposefully attacking civilians.
>>28445723 >US military A couple wings of B1s dropping napalm and Raqqa is gone >US military, just not using 'fire' bombs A couple wings of B1s dropping whatever they feel like >any other Western military "Hey America, can you please come bomb Raqqa for us? We only have 17 bombs total in inventory"
>>28450347 >We destroyed huge population centres indiscriminately, even purposefully attacking civilians.
Now that being said. While it really doesn't wash away Americas involvement in these crimes. It was Churchill that came up with 'em and Britbongs who started it. Americans just kind went along once they arrived. I'm not sure but they may have started to bomb German civilian targets even before the first German recorded war crime of killing a group of british POWs in northern France.. And if that's so then it was way before the blitz.
Churchill was a fucking piece of shit. While still the first lord of the admiralty he order to the fucked-up landing at Gallipoli knowing fully it was a god-damn suicidal idea just because he couldn't personally deal with the idea that Army was taking all the glory in the war instead of his beloved navy. So all those men had to die just because he didn't want to feel like the useless piece of shit he was.
In the second world war he did shit and was only the symbol as all the real ideas came from his generals and admirals. He just took the glory.. All except the decision to kill innocent Germans which was all him but which he never had to take any responsibility from..
>>28450423 >Oh ok they had some targets. That is the same thing as LEVELING ENTIRE CITIES REPEATEDLY.
Strategic bombing is about leveling cities? It has nothing to do with destroying strategic targets like depots, rail yards and shit?
In WWII they didn't have avionics or competent enough air crews to do strategic bombing properly. When it comes to Hanoi and Linebacker II they didn't have to level entire city as they could pretty reliably bomb within couple city blocks of intended targets, even while dumping iron from altitudes impossible during WWII. Ballistic computers, more accurate ground mapping radar, inertial navigation systems and shit.
>>28450630 Yes, that is the definition of strategic bombing.
Linebacker II specifically failed to have any significant effect not because they didnt hit their targets, but because ROE forbade them from bombing strategic targets in Hanoi proper. If memory serves, there was a military depot erected smack dab in the middle of the city because they knew the Americans wouldnt kill 30,000 civilians and leave another quarter million homeless in order to destroy it. We were also forbidden from bombing the major railyard in Hanoi because it was right next to a school.
>>28450347 >>they done it therefore we can do it No, its just them killing 1/10 of the population of Poland then whining about war crimes being committed against them is autistic. You reap what you sew
wait, am I supposed to feel bad for those arrogant kraut faggots with their perennial superiority complex? They started a war they couldn't win, they elected a jackass dictator. Too bad so sad. Same goes for the japs.
>>28451256 >It's war, there is no morality You dumb fucking faggot. What the fuck do you think war is for? The ends which are supposed to justify the means aren't military; they're political. They're civilian. You have the mindset of a god damn child. Combat isn't a free-for-all that militaries start up on a whim. A field marshal still takes orders.
