To the victors go the rights to distort

I saw this article in the Globe and Mail, Fighting words rile historians, about veteran's complaints about a plaque on the fire bombing of Dresden leading to that plaque being changed. I'm ashamed to be Canadian to think that our war museum would re-word a statement of fact in the face of political pressure. Just because it took bravery and sacrifice to do something, doesn't mean that that something was right. Wasn't it freedom they were fighting for? Where is our freedom when facts are suppressed in deference to those with the loudest voice? Sigh.
