Seventy years ago today
The Jews of the Warsaw Ghetto fought back. Initially, the resistance probably had less weaponry than I have.
But they held off as tough an opponent as you could get. An army well trained, equipped and seasoned in urban warfare.
How would this have panned out if the Jews of the Warsaw Ghetto were armed with AR-15's, long-range hunting rifles, a pistol for all who would hake up arms and ammo, food and survival goods caches all through the city?
A different outcome, I believe. Especially if similar uprisings sprung up all over europe simultaneously.
But then, if the citizens of Europe were armed like the patriots of the USA- would this tragic piece of history have ever occurred?
