Bombing Vindicated


J. M. Spaight

(London: Geoffrey Bles, 1944)


Another entry in the World War sweepstakes.  See a British functionary (he was Principle Assistant Secretary of the Air Ministry) gleefully admit to the planned bombing of non-combatant targets, and how this was supposedly a wonderful advance in international conduct (it was supposed to "shorten the war" and allow him to look Russia in the face).  It became a "splendid decision" (p. 74) to violate international law!  He seems to be saying that it was OK as long as it was done in a cold, premeditated fashion (an artifact of fully judaized, freemasonic England).  He also says this had been planned from the earliest stages of  the war -- and how dare the Germans complain about it!  Must be read to be believed.

This book, published during WW II, is now almost impossible to find.  Thanks to C.W. Porter for the hardcopy.

VII.  Retrospect and Prospect with Index


The following is from Spaight's The Splendid Decision.  Compare with the above, ch. iii, p. 74:

"Adolf Hitler only undertook the bombing of British civilian targets reluctantly after the RAF had commenced bombing German civilian targets... It gave Coventry, Birmingham, Sheffield and Southampton the right to look Kiev, Kharkov, Stalingrad and Sebastopol in the face. Our Soviet allies would have been less critical of our inactivity if they had understood what we had done... Hitler would have been willing at any time to stop the slaughter. Hitler was genuinely anxious to reach with Britain an agreement confining the action of aircraft to battle zones."
