In America, atheists are still in the closet

So do many other interest and identity groups. Complaint is our political lingua franca: it's what Occupiers, Tea Partiers, Wall Street titans, religious and irreligious people share.

I really hate thieves.

I do understand: you aren't smart enough to come up with your own opinion.

But it takes a pathetic loser to steal the words from someone else and try to pass it of as his own.

No, Chubby, you are just dumb.

And a bigot to characterize blondes as dumb.

Of all Christians, The American ones must be the most arrogant. You won't scare me with your biblical passages.

This is a good topic.

Among many sources...
"This was the time when Churchill began to think about the need for an 'absolutely devastating exterminating attack by very heavy bombers from this country upon the Nazi homeland.' When on the night of 24 August 1940 the German air force - the Luftwaffe - accidentally and against Hitler's orders - dropped some bombs over London, the British prime minister requested a retaliatory raid on Berlin. Hitler responded by going ahead with the Blitz, and the following months and years saw tit-for-tat raids on each country's cities.
At the same time, Britain's air force began to realise that its bombers were not able to find and hit specific war targets such as airfields or armament factories. An investigation revealed that just one in five aircraft was succeeding in dropping its bombs within five miles of its target. Under such circumstances, the bombing offensive could only be effective if it was directed at targets as big as cities.
Consequently, in February 1942, Bomber Command was instructed to shift the focus onto the 'morale of the enemy civil population'. This new policy came to be called 'area bombing'.
The aiming points thereafter, for bombing raids, were no longer military or industrial installations, but a church or other significant spot in the centre of industrial towns. And since fire was found to be the most effective means of destroying a town, the bombers now carried mainly incendiary bombs.
Thus, the exigencies of war had rendered the traditional distinction between combatants and non-combatants meaningless. Nearly everybody living in an 'industrial town' was considered to contribute directly or indirectly to the German war effort, and had therefore become a supposedly legitimate target"
and
" While Germany refrained from aerial bombing of British cities after the British declaration of war on Germany in September 1939, Britain started aerial bombing of Germany, officially focusing on military and industrial targets, on the night of 15/16 May with 78 bombers against oil targets, 9 against steelworks and 9 against marshaling yards.[11] Oil remained the main British objective until the summer of 1941."
The bombing of Germany was a "second front" by the allies to tie down German forces which could have been used against the Russians.

Germany used terror bombing against Poland Sept. 1, 1939 and a policy of extermination.

Hitlers orders were often verbal and not written down. The bombing of London might have been intentional.

It's also a good starting point for further research if you use the reference links at the bottom of the wiki article.

So, you don't like that the wikipedia moderators are strict about citations, and thus remove a lot of your idiotic assertions because of that. Good to know, remind me that you have no evidence of your assertions, so I don't waste time asking.
