Although highly effective in its ability to both demoralize and destroy, the problem with using high explosives against ground troops, whether dropped from airplanes or fired from ships or submarines, is that it’s murderous, cowardly bullshit: beneath not only the principles of this country but the principles of this species.
Believe it or not, there’s a good chance that even your most pro-war conservative neighbors feel the same way: just ask them what kind of bombing, if used against the United States, they wouldn’t consider to be murderous, cowardly bullshit, and rest your case.
I don’t care if it’s dropped out of an airplane or walking into a pizza parlor: Bombing is just bullshit. Oddly though, for all our freedom of information here, you don’t hear much of the “All Bombing is Just Murderous Cowardly Bullshit” school of thought in the media. Maybe that’s because the same people who bring you the media are also the ones making the bombs.
