On the evening of February 13, 1945, the most controversial episode in the Allied air war against Germany begins as hundreds of British bombers loaded with incendiaries and high-explosive bombs descend on Dresden, a historic city located in eastern Germany. Dresden was neither a war production city nor a major industrial centre, and before the massive air raid of February 1945 it had not suffered a major Allied attack. By February 15, the city was a smouldering ruin and an unknown number of civilians--somewhere between 35,000 and 135,000--were dead.

In the context of the present debate on the ethics of war against terrorism by guided drones, here is a classical case of a rather faulty ethical thinking that Machiavellically proclaims that the end justifies the means, two wrongs make a right, might makes right, and ultimately “who rules” is the all important consideration.

Indeed Einstein had it on target: our age is characterized by perfection of means and confusion of goals.
