• It is war

    In war, their are a lot of things that can effect the outcome. One of the bigger ones is moral. If one person destroys the moral of their enemy then they have already won. This was major in WWII. Without some of these attacks on cities then the war would have lasted longer. And with these attacks, the people did not support the war. Which weakened their will to fight and made the people turn against the Nazis. This is why we dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Without those bombings, the war in the Pacific would have continued and more deaths would have happen. I believe that these bombings are justified because they save American lives.

  • We Were At War

    We look upon the Second World War from the protection of modern life, away from Nazism and its evils, away from such worldwide war. The bombing of Dresden was, within the best judgement of those in charge, the best option for proceeding with the war towards victory and therefore the deposition of the Nazi party and the prevention of further crimes against Jews, homosexuals, gypsies etc. - the Allied forces did not bomb Dresden for fun, nor for evil purposes, but to the end of winning one of the VERY few wars in history that can be said to have had a "good" and "bad" side.

  • How could the firebombing of Dresden not be justified?

    In times of war, the aim is to completely and utterly decimate the enemy - to do whatever it takes to win. For this reason I find it totally incomprehensible for people to even argue that the firebombing of Dresden was not justified. People need to remind themselves that the Second World War was no place for humanitarianism, but a place for war and decimation in order to service human kind for the future - in order to prevent such killings happening again. This site seems to be full of lefty liberal queers who have no idea what it means to be in a war - they need to pull their finger out and realise that sometimes however inhumane, atrocities are required.

  • Hitler didn't carpet bomb civilians until Churchill did it.

    If you stop to actually watch unmolested speeches made by Hitler, he clearly states that he refused to attack civilians until his enemies gave him no other choice. Hitler had always admired the British. He even let 400,000 British troops leave Dunkirk when his advisors said not to. Subsequently, Churchill himself is responsible for Hitler's attacks on Great Britain. So when Churchill hit Dresden, he did it purely out of spite. He wanted blood and bodies and that's it.

  • The City Was Full of Refugees

    The RAF and US air force didn't need to bomb a non strategic value city to merely prove a point. The city at the time was full of innocent refugees who were ignored by the heads of the allied forces, seeing them not as people, but numbers on some paper, a simple trade off for so called peace.

  • It was unjustifiable.

    As the bombing were completely uncalled for as Dresden did not pose a threat to Britain. 50,000 innocent civilians died in the hands of the British and Americans, this was not an act of war but instead an act of genocide and mass murder. I hope many of you believe that this was a uncalled for atrocity

  • There is a reason why we are taught this a school, and it should always be

    War is never a black and white issue, and whilst we fundamentally fought for good, the bombing of Dresden shows us that we were not completely free from wrongs and innocent blood stain.

    We killed many innocent people through retaliation and vengeance and it was an evil act of it's own and largely ineffective too at that. We must not cover this up, or mask it over. Learning history is about not repeating the same mistakes again, and we had our own lessons to learn in how to conduct humane and fair war protocols without resorting to 'dirty' tactics.

  • Allied nonsense in my opinion

    For me all the things England (and Denmark) did to German civilians were uncalled for. England authorized the mass bombing of Dresden (apparently because those "savage Krauts" were a threat to the English). A thing Denmark (which was also an enemy of Germany) did was that they forced German civilians to work on labor mines. Not only that, but a Danish hospital gave them the Klan treatment. When many Germans came to Danish hospitals looking for treatment, a Danish hospital turned them down and let them rot and die.

  • Mass-killing is never justified.

    Throughout World War Two "carpet-bombing" was widely used as a means of "denying the enemy." Yet the facts show that it wasn't that effective at retarding construction. Millions died for no other reason than where they were born. Most were likely just trying to survive until the war was over. The bombing of Dresden, resulting in a fire-storm as it did, was as destructive as if the city had been hit with a nuke of the time. All it did was make the people there see the Allied powers as cruel and uncaring.

  • Dresden posed no threat.

    The firebombing of Dresden- which by the way killed more people than the atomic bomb in Hiroshima- was absolutely unnecessary. Dresden posed no threat to the Allies; Germany was about to surrender anyway. We only bombed Dresden along with the English out of vengeance over what happened in London and the like. Yes, I know, it's war and bad things happen, but can't we try and limit how many bad things happen? Dresden was a beautiful city full of innocent, unsuspecting people who just happened to be in the path of American fury. Completely unjustifiable atrocity, and yet you hardly ever hear about it.
