    I've seen this trick pulled at times. While the Anglo-American Air-Forces have bombed Dresden to create a fire storm, Adolf Hitler and by implication the Germans were to blame for it. Classical example of Victim-Perpetrator inversion. Of course also an attempt to deflect to other debates like the origins of the war, "The Holocaust", who started bombing on cities, etc. If this all gets soberly analysed with the facts, it still doesn't look to good for the blame-shifting, but most people can't or won't do that.
