Which genocide is a “minor faux pas” at all? And which murder can be called “minor”? Killing a human being is the ultimative crime. One can distinguish between the number of victims, but murder always is the most severe crime. No other nation has “made up” with its dark chapters of history like Germany, though there are many which are guilty of genocide, too. The relationship Germany has with Israel today is a great example that forgiving (a country) doesn´t mean forgetting.
Yes, I agree with that. Red China and Russia haven't begun to pay for all the people they've murdered in cold blood.
For sheer cruelty, no one holds a candle to Pol Pot's regime, imo.
If we take the islamofascists at their word, more than anything in the world they hope to be a hundred times more efficient at murder than Nazi Germany ever was.
I don't know, Michael... When people think of genocide 100-200 years from now, Germany may not even come to mind anymore, so many groups today and so many governments seem hellbent on outdoing it.
“No other nation has ‘made up’ with its dark chapters of history like Germany, though there are many which are guilty of genocide, too.”
Very true. Turkey to this day hasn’t even acknowledged the genocide on the Armenians, let alone apologized for it.
