|I haven't seen this so I really should not comment on the Davis interview. But, since no-one else is jumping in I will give it a shot. You talk about Davis' indignation about Shermans march to the sea. It is possible for one to lament an action while still readily acknowledgeing it was necessary? Dropping the atomic bomb on Japan during world war 2 for instance? (I am sure many on the board will disagree with me here that the U.S. should not have taken this action)The images and just the idea of the atomic bombs destructive force is horrifying. I don't have a problem with anyone who says it was ethically repugnant and should not have been done. However, I am convinced it saved Japan and the U.S. from far greater loss of life in the long run. A lot of innocent people suffered, same is true in the southern United States-I genuinely feel sorry for both people caugth up in war at both times.
Maybe Mr. Davis is thinking along the same lines with his comments on Shermans march? Like I said, I did not see the interview, I just thought I would throw that out there...
