Our History Classes – Ed O’Rourke

I was a history major.  The only time I heard about the US committing war crimes was in my senior year at St Thomas High School in Houston.  The US committed aggressive war with Mexico and later with Spain.  It was only later in life when I saw people examining the bombings in Dresden, Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Not mentioned in the attached article is that General MacArthur could have captured some islands in the Philippines and left the rest along.  Luzon was almost totally destroyed without any military service being served.

I hope that history courses today offer a more critical look at military events.

Sincerely,

Ed
