Operation Gomorrah

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Gomorrah

In 1943 in the space of 3 days as many people were killed in Hamburg Germany as in the blitz in London over the war. 1.2 m were made homeless and some 37000 wounded.

In many ways the devastation caused was worse than the dropping of the atomic bombs.

Was this raid and raids of its sort justifiable and were they effective at weakening the German war effort.

Try this link for a good article on the military action.

The article says there were about 45,000 deaths attributed to the raids on Hamburg.

A warcrime is a warcrime, regardless of who commits it and who it's committed against.

Yes it was justifiable. If you don't want to go to war then don't start the war. Whatever happens after that is their own fault. They didn't spare civilians so there is no reason to spare their people.

That's just about the most immoral thing I've ever read.....
So.....basically...you'd be totally ok with Iraqis performing suicide missions in America, because: "Hey, you guys started a war with their country - no reason to spare your people"?

Deliberately and needlessly targeting innocent civilians just for the spite of it is the act of a coward, it is a warcrime, and those committing such acts, deserves a short drop and a sudden stop. Regardless of the nationality of perpetrator and victims.

By your logic, Germany would have been justified in bombing London to smithereens, because the UK and France declared war on Germany, not the other way around.
I happen to believe that the terror bombing of British civilians was a disgusting crime against humanity.

Would Pakistan be justified in nuking Indian cities, because you've attacked them in the past?
Or is that something completely different, all of a sudden?0

Are you a pacifist?

Are you familiar with Catholic Just War doctrine?

Yes, they would have been justified because it is war. It isn't a nice thing based on morals. The entire goal is to kill.

We should avoid war at all costs but once you are engaged the goal should be ending the war as quickly as possible.

Plus WW2 was a completely different type of war. It was a total war where all your countries resources go into fighting the war because the stakes are too high. Iraq wasn't a total war and we were only fighting the country of Iraq for like a week. After that we were fighting the small terrorist organizations within. That's why it took 8 years. WW2 was the biggest war in history and it only took a little over 5 years.

Shipyards in Hamburg were building battleships for the German Navy and also building submarines. As far as I know, these shipyards produced all the submarines that Germany had during the war. This is the military reason for targeting Hamburg.
