BigCountry discusses the destruction of Dresden by allied bombing.
He suggests the Dresden area was a refugee center, a safe place for the 'displaced'.
Apparently, the allies waited until about 700,000 refugees joined the 500,000 residents...
...then turned the place to unlivable rubble.
The American propaganda machine claims ** only ** 21,000 civilian non-combatants perished.
Could their assessment be in error by a factor of 7,000% (seven thousand percent)?
My 'presentism' is offended by:
a -- the loss of life
b -- targeting non-combatant civilians and their civilization
c -- targeting a refugee zone
d-- timing the atrocities for the maximum deaths of refugees.
Again, I strongly recommend the book SUPERMOB by Russo.
Can you imagine everything you know is wrong.
Every. Single. Time.
Great text, and his follow up A RENEGADE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES, put a spotlight on the legal syndicate among many other underhanded organizations.

One way of looking at the pandemic was to focus on how many people died — more than half a million around the world by the end of June. Another was to try assessing the complicated impacts of the various measures taken to combat the virus. When a lot of the functions in society were frozen, people struggled — especially the most vulnerable.
