Well I am stuck on the idea that he spearheaded the killing of 2500 Americans.
Why did we pursue German soldiers for war crimes? We should have forgiven them too after all they were doing their jobs.
Come to think of it, I don’t recall the Japanese showering the Americans who dropped the nuclear bombs in Japan with Japanese citizenship. They too were doing their jobs.
while we are at it, what is the big deal with building a Mosque at ground zero. Those wanting to build the mosque had nothing to do with 9-11.
Dresden is also thinking of making Bomber Harris a postumous citizen, lol!
Ordinary German soldiers were not pursued for war crimes. If you are referring to the ones who participated in the Nazi genocide, they were prosecuted for participating in deliberate acts of mass-murder against prisoners and innocent civilians, which is a whole different ball game from killing the other side's soldiers on the battlefield...
“Why did we pursue German soldiers for war crimes”
We pursued the ones who came into towns,, rounded up innocent civilians, and murdered them. That was pure murder. Thats why we pursue them.
Furthermore, he had a deep postwar friendship with some Doolittle raiders. If guys like that can give it a rest, you should too.
Last,, by some accounts, after he came here, he found a way to give a million dollars a year to local governments on Oahu as an attempt to make restitution. I’ve never heard of such a thing. Did Werner Von Braun ever show such remorse, or do anything similar for the slave labor he used?
He was not part of any group within his military that systematically carried out orders as part of death camps.
There is a difference.
Also, Japan was subject to administration under the USJMC after the war.
If was important, we could have gone after Hirihito, Yamamoto and many others.
The outcome was just and we’ve moved on.
You are a first class idiot!
