The germans or their government? Even if they wanted war, that would not necessarily mean bombing civilians in terror raids, would it? Don't take it as a personal offence, but your post lacks deeper signs of any thoughts.
No offence taken. Up to 1943 the Germans were having a good war.The General public were full square behind Hitler... When you declare total war,that means you asked no favours,and you got no favours...Don`t say you wasn`t warned. The first raids were leaflets raids,and I'm sure they were used for toilet paper.The last raids were High explosives.If the Germans didn`t released then. They surely released later, that they bit off more then they could chew.
Cold and heartless it may seem,but I feel more sorry for the Allied bomber crews,then the German citizens.If you cant destroy the factories, then you have to destroy the people that work in them...How many Germans were involved in the war effort? If one German bullet is made, then in my book, that`s one too many.
What would London look like, if the Germans had a fleet of one thousand four engined aircraft in 1940...Do you really believe the Luftwaffe would have shown mercy?
You give this some thought,my friend.That YOU have a opportunity to voice your opion in a free world.
Let me remind you of some British mercy.Once the war was over.The Russians wanted 10,000 Germans shot.Churchill put a stop to that.
The Allied, Berlin air lift.The British foiled a Jewish plot, too poison the water reservoirs.
