Bombs | New NY 23rd

“A perfectly executed strike last night. Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military. Could not have had a better result. Mission Accomplished!–President Donald Trump

The claim of Mission Accomplished was likely premature and in any case an unfortunate choice of words.

Battle of Britain

German bombs did much damage, but also strengthened British resolve.


British and American bombs did much damage, but didn’t end the war. Russian success in the East and the Normandy landings did that.

Pearl Harbor

The attack did damage, but didn’t affect the outcome of the war. The attack did strengthen American resolve.

North Vietnam

US bombing of North Vietnam at most delayed reunification.


Bombing of the Ho Chi Minh trail at most delayed reunification.


Attacks on Libya during the Reagan Administration did little if anything to affect Gaddafi’s government.


The Taliban continues to control much of Afghanistan in spite of dramatic bombing.


If the first American missile attack was to deter the use of chemical weapons by the Assad government, it failed.
