    'The Bomber Mafia'--sounds like a dangerous book to read on a plane. What if an air hostess or fellow passenger got scared looking at the cover? Though I have a feeling it would be an interesting book to read on a long flight.

    I hope everyone now sees Jimmy for who he really is and the evidence of the type of person and harms he's bringing to our society is glaring after his interview with Mike where Mike destroyed him by just being human and Jimmy thinking he's a God. Don't watch his stuff and make that subscriber count drop to zero. Unsub and literally save the world. That's all it takes. Power gone from massive evil

    I guess I'd better read this because we were taught that while we were focused on the war in Europe, which they were trying to involve us in, Japan launched a surprised attack. This is what changed our mind about getting into the war and we bombed Japan because it would keep them from getting further involved.

    Gentlemen, this bombing tactic was used by Bush Sr. on Iraq with the first Iraq war invasion - they hit power plants and hydro dams. It brought Iraq to its knees. Then the sanctions set in...millions starved to death; many of them children. Then Bush Jr. "goes in to finish the job" so to speak. Sick.

    He's not much of a Historian. Either he neglects to say or doesn't know that BURNING Down Japan continued for most of the war and incinerated MILLIONS. Germany had some that as well.... I'm not for war, but I'm not passing judgement either. I'm just making it known that there were more than 1 time, and some of the Bombing killed many more than the Atomic Bombs.

    If you think that it is a revelation that there were advocates for air power being supreme over all other forms of warfare then you missed the history bus by at least half a century. As early as 1907 H.G.Wells' The War in the Air predicted terror bombing of civilians. In 1939 British planners assumed 100,000s of casualties in London shortly after the outbreak of WWII. Turned out indiscriminate area bombing simply stiffened an enemy's resolve, but precision bombing (1944 onwards: Railways and industry) shortened the war. Not funny, but true.

    Ever hear of the acronym "DARVO" regarding behavior of abusers? Deny, Attack, Reverse Victim/Offender. It's also the root of modern "conservative" politics. "The embrace, by working Americans, of policies that hurt their own interests can be understood on the basis of Ferenczi’s model of identification with the aggressor. Intrafamilial child abuse is often followed by the abuser’s denial. Children typically comply with abuse, in behavior and by embracing the abuser’s false reality, under threat of emotional abandonment. Similarly in the sociopolitical sphere, increasing threats of cultural and economic dispossession have pressed working Americans to adopt an ideology that misrepresents reality and justifies their oppression. In society as in the family, there can be a compensatory narcissistic reaction to forfeiting one’s rights that, ironically, encourages feelings of power and specialness while facilitating submission." (The traumatic basis for the resurgence of right-wing politics among working Americans) DOI: 10.1057/pcs.2015.53 "When effortful, deliberate thought is disengaged, endorsement of conservative ideology increases." (Low-Effort Thought Promotes Political Conservatism) 10.1177/0146167212439213 “If all you had ever felt toward another person were the cold wish to “win,” how would you understand the meaning of love, of friendship, of caring? You would not understand. You would simply go on dominating, and denying, and feeling superior. Perhaps you would experience a little emptiness sometimes, a remote sense of dissatisfaction, but that is all.” ― Martha Stout, The Sociopath Next Door "You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him." ― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
