In'a long article, the paper says: ,� ' "if we are In a 'position to destroy the whole of London, It . would be more humane to do so than to allow one more German to bleed to death on the battlefield; To hesitate or to surrender .oiir- , selves to'feelings of pity, would be  ' unpardonable. ' "More than four hundred merchant ships have been stolen from us by England. Our answer should - be that for every German ship at least one English town should be reduced to ruins by our airmen.
