You are a silly man. The Jews did nothing to Germany, hitler or the German people. However, radical Muslims have killed Americans, destroyed American interests & attacked us on our own soil.
The American CIA operatives who conducted the torture obeyed their government the same way the Nazis obeyed theirs.
You're silly to believe that soldiers cannot be held responsible for their own actions.

Quote:
To say otherwise would be to say that ALL Germany was culpable since the entire country was involved in their war effort.
Germany was indeed held responsible, but only the millitary leaders were trialed. Every German who cooperated with the Nazis should have been on trial on principle but this would haven been impossible.

Why couldn't they defend themselves?
Because you were defensless maybe?
LoL I guess answering your questions is no use, because ya have ta be spoon-fed everything.

Awesome of them to say they are sorry.
It is.
The American government could never do the same simply because once they admitted that they were wrong they would've been sued into bankruptcy by the aggrieved parties (and their lawyers).
But I guess suing is just the American way.

The above has no relevance to the topic of this thread.

Some one has suggested that they , as a non US citizen, are qualified to sit in judgement of our Constitution, because the US Government exports itself to other countries. While that may be it is totally irrelevent to our individual rights a US citizens. I, personally, do not see eye to eye with the Federal Governments policies, yet that incessant buzzing says that since the Feds meddle in other countries that common citizens rights here are subject to foriegn scrutiny.. And why on Earth should folks like me care a fart in a high wind about UN policy? I HATE the UN with a passion. Bunch of sniveling whiners with their hands out for my tax dollars is all that body is. Our Costitution is just fine as is thanks.

Ok, I'm sorry that was over your head. I assumed, wrongly, that you would understand how utterly stupid it is for a person in your position to NOT recognize the difference an armed citizenry can make.

Why must you lie & exagerate? Must really suck to be so intellectually bankrupt you need to stoop to this level. Whats going on between the Isreali's & Gaza has nothing in common with Hitler & the Jews at all. I dont think Israel is conquering all of the mideast & killing all the Arabs. They want & faught for one little chunk of desert.

It is.
Actually, unless they restored you in your homeland its pretty meaningless. Cant even wipe your butt with an apology.
You dont think you are owed more than that? No wonder you are content to be a serf. You sure deserve no better.

They have places you can go smoke things that will let you think you are still a free man.
Isn't going to happen.

Whats need got to do with it anyway? Your opinion is foolhardy, unless theres been a rash of crime & mayhem since your law got trashed the obvious truth is you needlessly support restrictive laws just to feel good. Must be some kinda power freak fetish thing.
You should try harder to keep up on your reading.

You may have forgotten but I dont care what you think the military does in regards to firearms.
I understand that Joe Six Pack always knows best.
