What we did to Berlin was impressive.
I went there in the 80s and they were still rebuilding it. We bombed it to complete rubble. (soz German members we're all friends now).
You dont need to apologize to German members. They were deluded by only party in country. Nazist killed all their political opponenets in Germany. Germans were beheaded.
Therefore Nazists were Germans but Germans were not Nazists.
BTW Dresden in my eyes is war crime.
Im also against use of Nuclear weapon on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Edit: Impressive is kind hursh word but then again my russian/japanesee English is probably worst then any member on UM. So, who m I to judge?

Politicians should stick to politics and let the generals fight the wars.
the generals always have to fight the wars because of the politcians. Of course, that doesn't mean that if there were no politicians, there'd be no wars, since left to themselves, Generals (or colonels, like our lamented friend Mr. Gadaffi) tend to have ahabit of deciding to become politicians themselves..
Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.
