Re: Final report on Dresden bombing released
I have several relatives in cemeteries across Europe and SE Asia from the war started by the Japanese and the Germans.
I do not blame the current people of Germany and Japan for these deaths and hope that they understand that my relatives along with a few million other people die to liberate them from tyranny of an oppressive and brutal regime.
I also make no apologies for the actions of any and all Allied forces during the war. It was a different era, with different rules circumstances. Were some mistakes made in the conduct of the war? Yes but so what, it was over 65 years ago so get over it.
Some gratitude for what we saved them from and for what we did to help their countries recover after the war and to have protected them from communism in the Cold War would however be appreciated.
I always find it strange that only reasonable people agree with me.
