Amman pulling together...

The telephone is ringing off the hook, neighbours knocking on the door. All checking on my host's safety, and cursing the killers.

The historian in me recalls that for 3 years it was the declared and specific intent of the British, and the undeclared but desired goal of the American, air forces to break German and Japanese civilian will by terror bombing. These bombings continued almost daily, randomly killed hundreds of thousands, caused unimaginable suffering, and smashed economies.


Dream big, Zaqarwi.
