I simply stated why we didn't use the bomb in Germany. These 'rules' you're mentioning I never brought up.

I am simply looking at the events of the bombings with a strategic view. Make of it what you will.

It's not that the article was vandalized, but the fact that it was. Most articles in Wikipedia can be edited by anyone at any time. But our opinions on Wikipedia's reliability are not related to this topic.

Terrorism, genocide, strategic losses, it doesn't matter what you call it. The simple fact is, bombs were dropped to speed up the inevitable and to save our country money, soldiers, and complications from Russia. The civilians were there and died as a side effect. Label it what you will.
