A History Lesson for Liberals

The leftists who are now in a tizzy because the CIA poured some water on the nose of terrorists in the aftermath of 9/11 need to read this reminder of the nation's response to Pearl Harbor by General Curtis LeMay. Here is an example:

On the night of March 9, 1945, LeMay sent 346 huge B-29 bombers loaded with napalm from the Mariana Islands (Guam, Saipan and Tinian) to Tokyo. The first planes dropped their incendiaries on the front and back of the target area -- like lighting up both ends of a football field at night. The rest of the planes filled in the middle. More than 16 square miles of Japan's capital city were gutted, two million people were left homeless, and 100,000 were dead.

Some of us think our response was too restrained after 9/11 and a more emphatic lesson on the perils of such terror attacks on the U.S. should have been made on all of Islam.
