The RAF had been bombing Germany for four months by the time the London Blitz started in September 1940.

Since: Jan 13

yep, it was payback, and not the devastation the Germans suffered from aerial bombing. Besides all those old buildings needed re-building and the regeneration was needed to take London (& other cities) into the modern.

the earlier bombing on Germany was only on industrial and military targets. By the time we bombed the living hell out of them, they had already bombed us heavily. some of you amateur bogus historians should get some real education, not some nonsense you saw on Youtube. If a bomb came anywhere near you wimps you'd faint away.
The UK started World War II, and the RAF had already bombed civilian targets including the town of Emden long before the Germans retaliated.

War is about killing people or weakening them to your demands.

The fact is that the RAF bombed Germany first, on the night of 3rd September 1939.

Germany and the Soviet Union both invaded Poland at the same time, yet the UK only declared war on Germany.

The RAF bombed German cities every night from 11th May 1940.

The Luftwaffe didn't start bombing London until 7th September 1940.

Do you blame the Germans for retaliating?

Churchill was just an American plant sent to destroy the British Empire.

Germany and the Soviet Union both invaded Poland at the same time, as they had agreed in the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact on 23rd August 1939.

Churchill had completely destroyed the UK as a world power long before Blair was even born.

They started it anyway.
The RAF was bombing Germany for four months before the Blitz began.

Anyway the UK started World War II.

The UK started World War II. It could have simply remained neutral, as it did when the Soviet Union invaded Poland at the same time as Germany.

I'm so glad about everyone who died in the Blitz.
