Erik, tell me how explaining somebody's motive for committing a crime is justifying said crime?

You are absolutely right -- We left the German people broken, poor and helpless after WWI. That was a contributing factor to the rise of the Nazis. But that does not justify their actions.

If you don't understand the difference between describing a criminal's motivations and justifying their actions, I feel sorry for you.

I understand the difference. Unfortunately, many politicians do not.

This is one of those cases.
