During WWII we dropped two nukes on industrial cities populated with civilains. The conventional fire bombings of Tokyo and the German city of Dresden killed more people than both bukes did. I am of the same opinion as General Douglas MacArthur, in that if you make the decision to go to war, you should use every and all weapons (total war)at your disposal in order to shorten the war, thereby saving lives and property. He also aexpress the belief that anything short of total war is immoral.
Ditto. There is no way to “play WAR”. To win any war you must destroy the enemy’s will to fight. This can be done by destroying the enemy, their ability to wage war, or the cause for which they fight. This is why the firebombing in WWII, we were not able to destroy the enemy armies at the time so the allies destroyed their homeland (this would be mecca and medina). This is why we went after the factories and resources that fed the war machine of the enemies (today this would be mosques and oil money). This is also why we should drill baby drill and end their money and our dependence on enemy energy.
This is also, right or wrong, why the internment camps. So we would not have the enemy in our midst. If we can prevent Boeing from moving to South Carolina, we can bring American Tech home from overseas.
Total war means using the weopons at your disposal to achieve victory (provided you want victory, and not just cover for undermining America).
Looks like the war was lost the minute a muslim was elected President and promptly announced our surrender.
Our withdrawal will mean the end of the Karzai regime and the Taliban will go right back to where they where before 9/11.
The military would be more effectively used against the commie sons of bitches in DC who sold them out.
You might be confusing MacArthur with Curtis LeMay.
