Every year at this time, for many more years than I care to recall, we are once again reminded about how nasty we were to the citizens of Dresden for bombing their city; which of course was naturally totally Anti-Nazi, peace-loving, and for a long time a source of attempts to end the War which, as everyone recalls, was actually started by the British and the French after they objected to legitimate peaceful movements of German civilians to reclaim territory stolen after the First World War. We are reminded that some 25,000 people died from the fire which raged over Dresden for three days, and all those dead were all peace-loving Germans who hated Hitler, didn’t like the Nazis, and wished the War was over.We are reminded, once again, how nasty and cruel we were to those innocent Dresden civilians, and we should all be apologising, continously, for a very, very long time!
Just before we all fall on our swords, or knees, or both, I would also like to remind readers of what that same Nation, within whose borders Dresden still sits, and the Nazi Luftwaffe which was after all ‘only following orders’ achieved all those years ago, whilst trying to reason with the British that they were right, and that we were totally wrong!
Like in London
or indeed in Liverpool!
And I would too have us remember these boys, who helped stir those flames which were so well deserved, and helped bring us all to Victory!
