Every bomber pilot was an officer ... air raid casualties were typically in the thousands if not tens of thousands ... it adds up.
“Saddest is little kids. Parents get divorced, or worse, one dies. They ALWAYS blame themselves. They will always think something they did wrong caused it. Heartbreaking, really.”
I never heard that about little kids,but I have heard it about adolescents. Even adolescents don’t ALWAYS blame themselves.
My button is bigger than yours.... and works...
FWIW, approx 19,000 B24, 12,000 B17, and 4000 B29 were produced. The sheer number of aircraft involved in WWII was staggering.
Many like to read about wars. I do.
But it is the most insane creation of mankind.
But once millions of young men are indoctrinated by the poison of communism or fascism, only other young men can stop them.
Over THIRTY THOUSAND!!!!!
And these puppies held a number of men, no?
I dont know what the hell i’m talking about so you’ll have to forgive me.
I’m assuming they were bombers.
Donald doesn’t mince words doesn’t he :-)
This won’t be WWIII. Nobody considers North Korea the hill to die on. The end of the long frozen Korean War will take maybe 90 minutes.
The only other thing I could see is to force China to let as many refugees out into humane camps as want to leave. Kim Jong-Un will be quite Ronery at that point.
Kim’s Desk Button is a Suicide Button, much like Matt Lauer’s Desk Button was a Career ending Button.
The aircraft I cited were all “heavy” 4-engine bombers. The crew of a typical US or UK heavy bomber was around 10 men (more or less depending on type). Pilot, co-pilot, engineer, navigator, radioman, bombardier, and several gunners. A B-17 had (at least) a top gunner, two waist gunners, a ball gunner and a tail gunner.
As you might imagine, the casualty rates in the bomber forces were appalling.
The standard Christian theological answer is that it’s the result of sin in mankind. One group will sin to the harm of another group until one or both find the conflict intolerable. Then there’s a war.
It is not the size of the button that is important but the willingness to press it.
It sounds pretty horrifying.
I remember a poem about a tailgunner in a fight plane.
He had been shot and killed.
I think it is a quite famous poem but I cannot recall much of it.
Maybe I don’t remember being young and relatively fearless, because one would have to shoot me up with massive amounts of dope to be a tail gunner at 49. :(
Their mortality rates had to have been horrific.
That makes sense.
Haven’t seen you around :) Hope you’ve been well.
Another dose of testosterone for the media to swallow and gag on all day tomorrow.
Hey, it's big and red, right?
