Re: Destroyed Fossils (was: Re: JP3 Trailer)

The Norden bomb sight was very accurate for its time. The Allies held it top
secret. The Germans tried time and again to get the plans for it. The carpet
bombing was done to cripple the German industry, transportation, and peoples'
will. When you launch 500+ plane raids, a lot of collateral damage is expected.
