Semi-related... the devastation....

February 03, 2024 09:36AM
We've all seen the photos of the devastation caused by the bombing of the cities and towns in Germany... and in France, England, Italy, etc for that matter. Here's what gets me -

You can't exaggerate how demolished many of the cities were. How in the HELL did they clean all that up? Because in my mind - even if you had tens of thousands of heavy equipment pieces ready to go it seems to me clean-up should have taken a century, or more. IOW... they'd still be at work today! Hmmm, maybe they are?

Had it been me assessing the damage after a bombing raid I would have thrown my hands up in surrender - "We can never clean this up... gotta move to Antartica.".
