What I actually said was:editor said:Really? Could you offer some 'historical examples' of the US Govt mass slaughtering thousands of its own civilian citizens on their home turf and give some examples of USG-sponsored catastrophic attacks on its own major cities please?
Allowing the enemy to get one in, though they may regret loss of life but see it as part of the wider strategic necessesity as they see it, is what I was trying to say.EddyBlack said:I would also add that as far as mass slaughtering of its own citizens, or rather allowing the enemy to strike if it is in the wider interest as they see it, the mentality of many of these people is difficult to understand. If they see their agenda as fundementally crucial then they can indeed countenance mass death of their own people. Its not to hard to think of historical examples.
