While he’s a lot more busted up about the bombing of Dresden than I am — look, they started it, ok? — James Edwards reminds me of a point I’ve made before:
That bombing high IQ people actually gets their heads screwed back on right, whereas places that just look like warzones (cuz their own residents “bombed” them), well — guess who lives there?
The Germans and the Japanese have not only been AWFULLY quiet for the past 60 years, they actually became productive members of the world community, busily making their little cars and gadgets.
Dresden? Lookin’ good:
That’s why I only support the nuking of Afghanistan (which is almost 11 years overdue now) for revenge/retribution purposes.
German and Japan had high cultures to revert to; that both were considered among the top 5 most “civilized” nations just before they went mental is something I’ll leave others to ponder.
We made the mistake of implementing a Marshall Plan in Afghanistan BEFORE they unconditionally surrendered.
Stuff has to be done in the right order, people.
PS: Is it REALLY too late to nuke Germany?
