    Agree. What do they say, "Justice delayed is justice denied."

    I'll never cease to be amazed at the willingness of many in the German-occupied nations to take up arms, usually against the jews, for their new masters. The anti-semitism in Europe at that time was mind-blowing. Very sad.

    Its very sad in deed. What is also terrible is the willingness of people to follow orders no matter how immoral.

    People need to learn how to say NO and refuse immoral totalitarian orders.

    In a war where we (british and americans) intentionally bombed innocent civilians, killing hundreds of thousands of them, I have a hard time going after an old man who killed less than a dozen under orders.


    Additionally our gov. currently does some generally illegal stuff all the time and we just write it off as following orders.

    Following orders does not absolve one of moral responsibility. Its called the Nuremberg defense.

    Bombing their cities and factories shortened the war. It made the Germans aware of the cost of enslaving the rest of Europe. I have absolutely no problem with the bombing of the same Germans who elected Hitler to power. They bombed the Brits and, if it wasn't for the large pond separating us from them, they'd have bombed us.

    War is Hell. I'm glad we won.

    We all need to ask ourselves. What would WE do if we worked for, say, the FBI or DEA, and were ordered to go "execute" some drug dealers?

    You see, that is why it is necessary to ARREST our criminals, COLLECT EVIDENCE AGAINST THEM, and CONVICT them. NOT assasinate them.

    Now in war things are different. But even spys should get due process.

    I thought you hated Capitalism and supported tyranny?

    Nazi's and Communists are only shades away from one another. And they both rely on murderous regimes.

    A lot of you have a very black and white view of what is sometimes a very complicated subject. Reference the 2005-ish movie The Reader if you will.
