Obama is planning a trip to Germany to coincide with the anniversary of the bombing of Dresden toward the end of WW-II....
From TimesOnline -
But he will be aware of the sensibilities of his German hosts before the D-Day commemoration and by travelling to Dresden — a city destroyed by ferocious Allied bombing in February 1945 — Mr Obama will also acknowledge how Germany suffered during the Second World War.
"...he will acknowledge how Germany suffered"...that's code for, "he will apologize for the US having kicked the everyloving crap out of Germany".
As if the Germans would have stopped slaughtering the dirty Jooooos anyway, had we not stopped them. What an embarassing spectacle this Presidency has been. He's running all over Europe apologizing for America's perceived past sins, to get what? The Europeans to like us? Yes, the US and Great Britain bombed Dresden toward the end of the war. So what? The problem with liberals is that they judge every historical action by the US through the lenses of modern warfare capabilities and modern conventions regarding rules of combat.
Apologists like Obama believe Dresden was a peaceful sleepy town filled with Jew-loving Germans happily living as artists, writers, and architects. On the contrary, Dresden was a manufacturing and shipping center of military significance, as well as an culturally valuable town. Despite sniveling liberals' yammering about war crimes there, it was a perfectly reasonable military target. Sure, the razing of Dresden came 12 weeks before the end of the war and Germany would have been defeated regardless. But the nuclear weapon we dropped on Nagasaki was pretty pointless too. Sorry, war is hell! If you don't want to have your cities bombed and your civilians killed collaterally, then don't start wars.
The anniversaries of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings are approaching, I wonder how embarrassingly Obama will grovel, prostrate before the Japanese, as he aplogizes profusely for that too?
