I don't think most of us actually condone the random bombing of civilian populations.
It's just that in those extraordinary conditions and the sheer madness that the world was in during the Second World War, it probably was the best solution at the time. The lesser of two evils if you will.
I also wondered, like toms, why no "warning shot" was sent. My guess is that it wouldn't have the same effect. 0 death doesn't scare fanatics. They'd have to bomb civilian areas eventually.
