Agreed, we all know it's PR bullshit, especially when you can use half-truths and obfuscate the truth. Civvies don't need to even think about the kitchen and how the sausage is made.The US has never won a war under those rules.
You wanna know how you won wars? you bombed cities, you forced civilians into hard labor, you dismantled every organisation that wasnt 100% pro US occupation, you did everything to build a solid nation...
The Battle of Hamburg, codenamed Operation Gomorrah, was a campaign of air raids which began on 24 July 1943 and lasted for 8 days and 7 nights. It was at the time the heaviest assault in the history of aerial warfare and was later called the Hiroshima of Germany by British officials.
On the night of 27 July, shortly before midnight, 787 RAF aircraft—74 Wellingtons, 116 Stirlings, 244 Halifaxes and 353 Lancasters— bombed Hamburg. The unusually dry and warm weather, the concentration of the bombing in one area and firefighting limitations due to blockbuster bombs used in the early part of the raid – and the recall of Hanover's firecrews to their own city – culminated in a firestorm. The tornadic fire created a huge inferno with winds of up to 240 kilometres per hour (150 mph) reaching temperatures of 800 °C (1,470 °F) and altitudes in excess of 300 metres (1,000 ft), incinerating more than 21 square kilometres (8 sq mi) of the city. Asphalt streets burst into flame, and fuel oil from damaged and destroyed ships, barges and storage tanks spilled into the water of the canals and the harbour, causing them to ignite as well.
The majority of deaths attributed to Operation Gomorrah occurred on this night. A large number of those killed died seeking safety in bomb shelters and cellars, the firestorm consuming the oxygen in the burning city above. The furious winds created by the firestorm had the power to sweep people up off the streets like dry leaves.
Fucking hell, this is someone who questioned the president's authority. You'd think somebody at MSNBC would have taken five seconds to ask themselves "Wait, how the fuck did that Richard Spencer get a high profile government job?"
That's because they're not Arab. There are Arabs living in Turkey, but ethnically, Turks are not Arab.The Turks don't consider themselves Arab, if anything crazy as it sounds they consider themselves European.
