Was the use of the carpet-bombing against your enemies in World War 2 ethical?

You cannot call ethical anything done in war but you can justify actions done to the enemy but again no war action is ethical. Bombing an area will always bring civilians corpses so bombing an area is ethical by no means but some people could accept the terms which the bombs were dropped in the first place.
