>>>>>we also pursued NAZI war criminals and in fact still do.<<<<

You gotta be kidding. Over 10,000 Nazis settled in U.S. after WWII and lived without being investigated. Nazi scientists were brought in bulk under Paperclip program. American space program was led by people who worked P.O.W.'s to death. (Nazi rockets were lablled V1, V2, American was labelled SaturnV, go figure).

CIA recruited Nazi spies and formed Gehlen network and formed German spy agency BND. The headquaters of BND was located in Pullach, near Munich. Pullach was retreayt of Nazi bigwigs during The Third reich.

Last but not least, American commissioner John Mc CLoy proclaimed amnesty for all Nazis and pulled one of the worst war criminals Albert Krups out of jail and returned all ill gotten property to him.

U.S. is and never was in business of prosecuting Nazis.

If those Serbs were Nazis, they would be given red carpet treatment instead of cold cells.

Comparing Serbs with Nazis is an act of Nazi revisionism.

Karajan was also a NAZI. In totalitarian regimes the only way to survive is to buy into the system. This is in Iraq as well, and was the case in the former DDR. The Germans took over many former soldiers from the Nationale Volks Armee and in Iraq today even some former Ba’athists are back in government. But they have gone through a debaathification and vetting process (much like denazification after WWII) and were not the ones who were personally culpable of war crimes under the Saddam regime or on the East West boarder in the German case. The guards at the boarder who shot people dead for trying to get to the West sure did find themselves in court after unification, and Saddam, some top military officers, and other Ba’athists are in prison for a reason.

Example: Helmut Schmidt
He served in the German Army in WWII, is he a bad guy? No. He later became Chancellor.

Much of what you write is folklore mixed with half truths.

Example: Since this is the guy you’re referring to I suggest you read a bit about him, since what you’re doing is throwing out half baked insinuations that are flimsy at best trying to concoct some BS relativistic argument.

What did von Braun “personally” do that would make him a war criminal? Please tell me? Do you think that maybe 99% of those living around Dachau knew what was going on? They did. Are all of them war criminals for that? No. But that guy making bets on how many heads his 9mm bullet would go through did commit a crime. See a difference?

People like this were prosecuted and hunted down.

Hey, DTA, I got on up on you. How does this "FACT" sound;

Quote: "Without the capital supplied by WALL STREET, there would not have been no I.G. Farben in the first place, and almost certainly no Adolf Hitler and World War II" Historian Anthony Sutton.

Not only did we take the criminals in but we actually help to bank roll and support the Nazi movement, (reference General Motors with Henry Ford's support), at the same time we were fighting them in Europe. Fact of history.

only a sampling....
