[quote]Curtis Lemay sure did. Read about the firebombing of Tokyo sometime. That was pure and simple an attack against a civilian population as were many raids over Japan[/quote] I'll have to defer to you on that. ...

[quote]..but when you fire bomb an entire city (Dresden) you well know what you are doing whatever you'd like to call it.

[quote]Or were doing double duty as scouts, relaying locations of U.S. ships or aircraft.[/quote] Well, during WW 2, in order to be a real scout, that boat would need to be equipped with a radio in order to give current reports, so the antenna would be visible, thus making it a legit target. A...

[quote]Then my goal is to kill and hurt as many people as possible to help bring down the country I am fighting. [/quote] Keep in mind things have changed quite a bit from the days of WW 2. Targeting of civilians directly for the purpose of killing and hurting as many civilian non-combatants a...

[quote]targets work better? [/quote] I defer to your reading/study of the Pacific War. I've read and studied much less than you on the topic of the Pacific War in WW2. The US bomber command in the Pacific never legally defined civilians as enemy combatants, but, that does not mean that civi...

[quote]Enemy combatants. There are no civilians in a total war. [/quote] I'm afraid that you are absolutely wrong here, friend. "Enemy combatant" is a term of art that is not equivalent to "civilian". Look up the meaning of the word "combatant". You'll find that it's close to being th...

[quote]Essentially this incentivizes not just being a little chubby butt, but instead being morbidly obese to the point you are disabled. Yes, makes perfect sense. [/quote] You hate disabled people, you right-wing bigoted swine. :lol: I learned how to play this game from the Democrat co...

re: Cuba embargo to be lifted - Champagne
[quote]My family wants our land back. The communist owe us aprox. $80 million and we have the deeds to prove it. [/quote] The ulterior motive behind this move is the hope that one day, a more just, open and prosperous Cuba would have the resources to pay some of that back to you. Keeping Cuba ...

re: Cuba embargo to be lifted - Champagne
[quote]Can anyone else not see this opportunity with Cuba? Really, Cubans aren't all that different from other Latin American countries. In fact, we used to be very close with them, since they're literally on our front porch. Improving relations with one of our closest neighbors is only a good thing...

re: Cuba embargo to be lifted - Champagne
[quote]Congress should demand that we get something in return and block this action until we receive some concession, even if it's only symbolic. That way we don't project weakness and we don't reward a dictatorship for digging in its heels and refusing to change. [/quote] I really don't know w...

re: Cuba embargo to be lifted - Champagne
If Cuba gives us nothing for these concessions, Congress is not obligated to lift the embargo. The Cuban President himself today admitted that Obama's actions did not and cannot end the embargo. Here's what the Cuban President said today at noon, Eastern Time: "The economic, financial and c...
