I would point out that when it was all said and done the B-52's ended the war for the U.S.in 12 days...
Thats one way of looking at it. Another way is that all that bombing didn't win anything... the war was to end anyway.
Some say the primary cause was not bombs but the million people protests in Washington. Some might also say those protests were brought on by the
media coverage of the war. I remember that coverage. Maybe you do too. Dinner with Walter Cronkite?
Lesson learned from Viet Nam. The first Gulf War correspondents weren't allowed free range of the war zone, they were compartmentalized. The wars
since are a veritable blank spot. Not on line of course, just in the mainstream.
Main street America has no idea what its government has wrought. Neither did the German or Japanese citizens during WWII. History rhymes.
