The RAF studied the effects of bombing in England, France and Germany and extrapolated the results to show that the psychological effect of bombing multiplied the destructive effect tenfold. The trouble was, that they relied on anecdotal evidence and overdid the extrapolations from a narrow base of information. The Raffs role in colonial repression between the wars was used to emphasise the cheapness in (British) lives of mass killing from a distance against people who had no means of retaliation.
Using Dresden as a pretext for the extermination of Palestinians is a tu quoque argument which is an excuse, not a reason. See
