By John L. SmithThe Associated PressMarch 12, 2019 09:09:04After World War II, the United States and its allies bombed carpet-covered homes in countries across the globe.

The carpet bombing was a tactic to help the occupiers take back the land that had been confiscated by the Nazis.

The Soviet Union had invaded Poland in 1941, but the carpet bombing ended when the Soviets withdrew.

In 1945, after the end of World War I, the carpet bombings were a key component of the Soviet effort to take back what it called Poland’s rightful homeland.

Some have used it to target their own governments and to prevent the spread of infectious diseases, while others have used the tactic to punish their neighbors.

The Soviet carpet bombing began in 1943 with a bombing campaign in the Urals, in the Caucasus and in parts of eastern Ukraine.

The campaign lasted until 1945 and involved tens of thousands of people killed, mostly in the Soviet Union, where the carpet-bomber was nicknamed “the carpet bomb.”

Today, the term “carpets bombing” is used to describe a campaign in which carpet-blown homes are used as targets for aerial bombing or bombing of other sites.

The name refers to a carpet that is used in carpet bombing.

The word “bomb” also is used as a synonym for the carpet, and the term is used by many countries around the world to refer to the tactic.

The United States has been known to bomb carpet-filled houses in other countries.

In some cases, the attacks have been done in conjunction with other kinds of aerial operations, such as bombing hospitals and other military facilities.

In some cases they have been carried out as part of joint military campaigns.

The recent carpet bombing in Poland, though, came amid mounting criticism of the Obama administration for not intervening more forcefully to stop the carpet bombs.

President Donald Trump and other U.s. officials have argued that the bombing campaign has not helped the spread or spread of disease.

In recent weeks, some countries have been reluctant to use the carpet bomb, with one European country saying that it had to stop bombing because of the potential for spreading disease.

The European Union has also expressed concern about the use of the tactic by countries like Russia.
