controversy regarding Bomber command exhibit at Canadian War MuseumAugust 29 2007 at 7:28 AM

Hello to all forum members
I would greatly appriciate hearing the opinins of all forum members regarding the controversy of Bomber command exhibit at Canadian War Museum. For those not aware, a body of text on a panel in the museum was offensive to war vet's who felt it painted them as war criminals.
There are now actions being taken to change the text.
The war museums director, Joe Gerts has mysteriouly resigned since this has come into light.
Here is the text in question...
''The value and morality of the strategic offensive against Germany remains bitterly contested....''
''Bomber Command's aim was to crush civilian morale and force Germany to surrender by destroying its cities and industrial installations....although bomber command and American attacks left 600,000 Germans dead and more than five million homeless, the raids resulted in only small reductions of German war production until late in the war''
Please post your opinion
