"And as far as 'never forget' goes; it's a rude joke. The world 'forgets' all the time. Cambodia, China, the Ukraine, the USSR, Rwanda, Iraq, Iran slaughering religious minorities...never forget my ass."

Communists can kill hundreds of millions and still get a pass from most people, including Jews. All people care about prosecuting is the Nazis. I have always thought it strange, but then the would is an exceedingly strange place.

Especially Jews. There is no human being more idealistic and more stupid on planet earth than a leftist Jew. They support all manner of communist schemes that invariably ending up turning anti-semitic in the extreme.

Are you a Jew? Are you a leftist? You are one brain-dead SOB. And your numbers are legion.

That's not a function of "the world", but the countries they committed their crimes in. For example, in this case Croatia is attempting to prosecute a Nazi. There's nothing preventing Russia, for example, from prosecuting former Communists. Or from requesting their deportation if they've fled the country. It simply doesn't happen very often.

Some Communists have been put on trial, particularly in East Germany, but the problem is that you have thousands or millions of people culpable in the crimes and it tears a society apart. Justice can't happen when so many people are tainted. I think 1 in 6 East Germans informed for the Stasi.

The lesson you should take away from the Nazi prosecutions is not "everyone wants to hunt them down", but that it's 60+ years after the war and there are still plenty of criminals out there who never faced justice and never will. There were few trials immediately after the war, only the big leaders, because many Germans were tied in with the regime and the countries had to move on with the people they had as citizens. people who had once been Nazis and now democrats. So everyone agreed to ignore the past for decades, not talking about the Holocaust or war crimes.

War crimes trials came much later, first with Eichmann in 1961, and only moreso in the 1970s when a generation of adults had grown up in Germany free of the Nazi taint and willing to look at past crimes.
