Oh how very ignorant Americans are on the subject of their own history and wars that THEY engaged in.
"Since the end of the Vietnam War, the Gulf of Tonkin has been the site of oil exploration by many multinational companies."
So western text books admit it but the war and the bombing was a front, the exploration
was HAPPENING during the war. US oil companies like Standard Oil had an edge, they knew after the war which fields to bid on and which areas were dry

I'm 1000% sure that the US would have dropped 100 bombs if they had them... like the firebombing of Dresden it was about taking out industrial plant
competition for AFTER the war: if the A bomb was such a fearsome weapon and all pervasive, why drop two and why so highly densely populated areas ??
Don't believe the propaganda, don't believe it.
ATS is not a place for kool-aid drinking Top Gun watchers!
Taylor writes that an official 1942 guide to the city described it as "one of the foremost industrial locations of the Reich" and in 1944, the
German Army High Command's Weapons Office listed 127 medium-to-large factories and workshops that were supplying the army with material.
But historian Sonke Neitzel wrote in 2006, "The industrial plants of Dresden played no significant role in German war industry at this stage of
