To put an historical perspective on what you are talking about doing, take a look at what the US did to the German city of Dresden during WWII. Despite the fact that the city was occupied primarily by civilians, the US military fire-bombed the entire city, something like over 20,000 incendiary bombs in one evening, completely leveling everything there, killing something like 90% of the population. This act has been completely condemned by the world over and deemed completely unnecessary for the execution of the war. It is a tremendous black mark on the US's military efforts during WWII and is still spoken about as one of the worst military decisions ever made because of the needless destruction of human life.

That's what you are talking about, nothing political about stating the obvious, that your stance is the incorrect one.
First the death figures were much closer to 25k not the inflated 200-500k revisionist historians claim.

Second I submit considering the appaling way the Nazis conducted the war they got what they had coming, and third that was a declared war and has nothing to do with what is gonig on now.

I suppose your appalled by the fire bombing of Tokyo, Osaka, Nagouya, etc... and the deployment of Litte boy and Fat man to end the war as well then......

Parker is correct on all counts from a "historical perspective" as well

shouldn't we all be appalled by all of these incidents?

anyone quoting numbers of deaths should actually source a real historical account of to back up your assertions.
