So you acknowledge that this is NOT the worst event of the war. Good. Do you plan to start similar thread at the time of the other anniversaries? I haven't seen any others... So why not?Originally posted by Adam
1) Any idiot can find the anniversary of the many bombings of Dresden on the web anyway.
2) I posted this thread around the dates of the two nukings. I posted the thread at that time fpr that reason. Very simple.
Yes, it is that simple - simply false. The vast majority of the provided quotes are from people who did NOT have first-hand knowledge of the strategic situation, namely scientists. As I said before, noteably lacking from your quotes are the very people who would have the necessary information: commanders in the pacific theater and in Japan.The WHY is that the sources were there at the time, involved in it, and had first-hand knowledge of the strategic situation. Pretty simple.
A good 3/4 of the links on that website for example are devoted to ONE scientist who'se opinions are completely irrelevant.
The article provided by Lyuokdea was quite compelling and you haven't commented on it.There has BEEN no objection beyond "in some hypothetical mystery future, some people might have died". If there's anything other than that, please point it out.
Remember, your speculation is based on a mirror image of that "hypothetical mystery future."
