    We held them to the agreement.

    I was there as part of Operation Southern Watch, patrolling the no-fly zone. We had not ONE incident of violation. Just gettin the facts straight.

    Maybe you guys wouldn't have dropped an A bomb on Germany, but my dad and his buddies would have. Since they were there, and you guys weren't, I think you are wrong.

    Good point about the wood vs. concrete, but I'm not claiming the firebombing of Tokyo revolved around prejudice...just our reaction and rememberance of it relative to what happened in Dresden.

    Unless your dad was FDR, Harry S. Truman or Henry Stimson then his opinion wouldn't have counted for much (nor would my grandfather's; who also would have let fly on the Huns). Japan, not Germany, was the intended target for the in-development A-bombs as far back as '43. That intention was reiterated in late '44 in a meeting between FDR and Churchill.

    I am still waiting to hear from code3retrievers on where he got his information that Iraq was violating the no fly zone in 2001 & 2002. The cat must have gotten his tongue. Can any of you righties help him out? RK, KG, HEW, Uncle Bill?

    For starters, Code3 didn't qualify his statement by limiting no fly zone violations to 2001 and 2002. You did.

    Secondly, there were indeed numerous Iraqi violations of the no fly zone by Iraq in 2001 and 2002. In well over 100 instances between 2001 and 2002 Iraq tried to shoot down coalition aircraft that were enforcing the no fly zone.

    Be careful what you ask for...
