I'd say in reality you need help sorting your sock drawer.
If we are referring to Islamic terrorists then I can safely tel you I’d wipe women and children out no problem, and I mean that sincerely. Don’t let your own sensitivities cloud what actions others would take.

Almost complete destruction of most critical infrastructure in Germany and Japan too. But both countries rose quickly from the ashes of war to become post-war economic giants.

Both countries paid a very heavy price for being the Axis in the Second World War.
I was watching a show called War Factories earlier. They said the Allies dropped 1.5 million tons of bombs on the Krupps factory alone during WW2!

Why would I? Last time I checked we are living in Ireland. We are talking hypothetical situations here and you’ve already stated you wouldn’t have the resolve to do it - I said I would.

Dresden is not part of Northern Ireland. Assuming that’s what ‘the North’ refers to.

I’ll tell you now though, if Northern Ireland annexed Donegal and went to war with the Republic of Ireland for 5 years, all the while murdering innocent people in death camps over the border in Lifford and dropping rockets on Dublin and then one night it was blanket fire bombed and levelled, killing every man woman and child in it, I’d lose no sleep over it. I wouldn’t cry foul and I’d shed no tears about it.

Spectacular stuff.
By that logic we are all responsible for the decades of child abuse, murder and rape from the Cathoic church.

We all deserve prison.

I have killed before in war, I know what I am capable of and if I needed to do it again I know I would.

You have typed words on a screen talking tough and acting as if you would wipe out ISIS yourself like some.modern day Rambo.

As a people, we can’t wash our hands of that. As a people, yes, we’re to blame. Blindly or ignorantly following men in black uniforms, doing what they say, accepting that their authority is bestowed upon them by a higher power? While the truth spread in whispered conversations, knowing glances but was never spoken out by those who would later profess they had no part to play in anything?

Doesn’t that ring a bell?!

Yeah sure you have pal, this is the internet so I fully believe you.....you are nothing but a handle just like me, exchanging views. You are a milkman for all I care and I’d expect the same in return.

I've been on here years, I have told my story many times. Believe me/dont believe me, I couldn't care less. Your posting history in this thread is there for all to see, a keyboard warrior who talks tough but would run a mile from a fist fight never mind a war.

The letters from local Lieutenants asking "why is Hiroshima not being targeted in the firebombing campaigns" is chilling and terrifying to read. They had no idea what was coming.

The biggest disgrace was that after bombing Hiroshima and seeing what they had done they decided 3 days later to do it again to Nagasaki.

The Atomic/Peace museum in Hiroshima is an astounding place.

Nah, he’s been there and done that I’m sure.

Gas though the way people who have done tough things think so many others couldn’t or wouldn’t.

Nobody thinks it would be easy, but then again, the armies of WW2 had plenty of milkmen and bakers, plumbers and teachers going out to shoot and bomb each other, and nobody was on the internet in those days making out that it’s something special or uniquely difficult to do when it really came down to it.

The vast majority of us would kill if that’s what it came to, no doubt about it. I would for sure and I don’t think I’d feel half as bad about is some would like to think I should.

WW2 German city obliterated by fire bombing, nearly 6 years into the war? Boo boo.

The episode of game of thrones "the bells" is heavily influenced by this event. Dresden was horrific to put it nicely.
