To the author of the previous comment. There was no need for that. Nobody had made a comment but you just had to vent your hatred. Unless you are inherently evil, you know the bombing was wrong but you can't bring yourself to accept that you are wrong just yet. There is no argument. It was wrong. You are wrong. Woman and children and old folk did not deserve this. Two wrongs do not make a right. I hope you wake up one day.

Dresden was a legitimate military target. I don't see how the initial comment was an expression of hatred. It was a statement of reality.

How did you expect the Allies to win the war? Or did you prefer another outcome to the war? Seriously, YOU try winning a world war on two fronts against 2 really no-holds-barred enemies. If you start a world war then you better expect that your civilians will be killed along the way.

Hindsight is a mysterious thing.

One has to wonder what the thinking of the Allies was in the decision to bomb Dresden so late in the war. One would think that there was little doubt in the outcome of the war by that time.
