The PC Moonbats get away with more
than they would down here:The "new" Canadian War Museum in Ottawa is in the throes of yet another controversy -- this time over their depiction of Bomber Command in World War II.
Of the 55,000 who made up Bomber Command aircrew in World War II, some 60% were killed, nearly 10,000 of them Canadian -- the highest casualty rate of the war.
The plaque at the war museum leading into the Bomber Command display reads, in part: "The value and morality of the strategic bomber offensive against Germany remains bitterly contested. Bomber command's aim was to crush civilian morale and force Germany to surrender by destroying its cities and industrial installations.
"Although Bomber Command and American attacks left 600,000 Germans dead, and more than five million homeless, the raids resulted in only small reduction in German production until late in the war."
Although it is commonly forgotten now, the outcome of World War II was not a foregone conclusion. If Hitler had not invaded the Soviet Union he could have held most of Western Europe. The D-Day Invasion would have been suicide against an army fighting on only that front.
