With All Due Respect, He was talking of the brilliance of the tactic, not praising them for using it.

It was a terrible thing indeed, but brilliant things are sometimes terrible i'm afraid.

I'm sorry Maurice for what you went through but if we could have utilized such a tactic against them, you too would agree with the military brilliance of that time.

Living many years in constant attack, worrying if that next plane is going to drop the bomb that kills you or someone close to you. It's scary and I couldn't go through that.

We can all blow up a little on things that so highly affect / affected our lives. It's only natural.

Thanks, but the point is, we wouldn't have invaded countries, killing thousands, tactics are tactics, the orders the men are given differ, according to the motives of that countries' motives.

it has to be said, as a tactic bombing civillians to break moral was a tactic that worked.
It's also a tactic that the british used in germany.
Bouncing bonbs were a great tactic (even though they killed many people).
the use of RADAR was a great tactic...
today the US is still carpet bombing countries as a way to win wars!
the unfortunate fact of the matter is that something exploding next to you will really mess you up. -that pretty much is the tactic.
when I say that I say it with the greatest respect to those that have lived through such 'tactics' as well as those that sadly died.

back on topic,
Places I've stayed in england include

Oxfordshire
northamptonshire
Buckinghamshire
Staffordshire
Manchester
Liverpool.
London.
Bristol.
Isle of Wight
Hampshire
Devon
Cornwall
Norfolk

and that's about it, alo most of the time when a county is listed I've only been to one or two towns in that county!
I have been to a few other places, but only really for a couple of days.
