They should have fell on their swords if they had any humanity.
Where is the humanity in war? Do you for one second believe that there weren't attrocities committed in Vietnam by U.S. Soldiers that were never investigated?
Do you want to go there? OK then, let's do it.....
Let's start with the My Lai Massacre shall we? William Calley was convicted for killing 22 villagers but only served 3 1/2 years under house arrest. The rest of the soldiers under him who were also involved in this rape and murder rampage were let go........
Shall we revisit this crime, pursue and prosecute the rest of the soldiers as the US is doing to these German prison guards? Maybe even retry Calley and give him the life sentence he deserved?
In your perfect world of warfare, why should these guys who actually participated in rape and murder get a pass when mere prison guards are being hunted down and deported???
You need to step back from your keyboard, and take a deep breadth! You’re completely misrepresenting/misunderstanding my comments. Did you read the article? I did. Twice. That’s why I’m aware of the court rulings. Where did I say I agreed with them? I only said that, according to the rulings, he should have been denied citizenship. Court rulings,,,, not mine! I disagree with a lot of court rulings!
Are there atrocities committed during wartime? Of course. Did this guy do anything besides trudge around the perimeter fence in the snow? Both sides agree he did not! Did he have any choice in the matter? He did not! Both Germany and Austria are not even investigating him.
Look at the John Demjanjuk(sp?) case. The Israeli Supreme Court realized they had no evidence against him, and released him. And JD’s case was even stronger, as far as his circumstances were concerned. He was a captured Russian soldier, forced to be an SS guard. His only choices were do it, or die, as so many other captured Russians ended up. And now he’s being charged with thousands of murders?

Sheesh! I said or implied that,,, where?
Moral relativism doesn’t work where genocide is concerned unless you agree with Stalin or Lenin who (to paraphrase) claimed that the death of 1 person is a tragedy but the death of millions a statistic.
