^ Essentially what you just said. It's fine, though, if you can not compete in a debate substantively, then I realize that you must stoop to inane tactics such as the one your employing right now.
No, they didn't fear their own life, they just didn't care for the lives of the people in the camp. Chris Browning's book, Ordinary Men, paints a very clear picture of the classic argument against a "clean Wehrmacht" as well. The people in the service of the Einsatzgruppen were also under the supervision of the Wehrmacht, and they were killing damn near indiscriminately. Also not punished.
Brainwashing can be very powerful when you have no other methods of getting information.
I find it also funny that many Americans demand his deportation/inprisonment.
Sure the Nazis did some heavy sh*t but ever since then the USA has taken part in so many wars that could easily match or even supass the victims of the nazis.
Starting from Vietnam. Korea,the Gulf, Sarajevo and not to mention the latest one wich technically its Americas fault, if they didnt support Afganistan so much when they where waring with Russia maybe things wouldnt be so bad today.
In short, stop butting in into everyone's bussiness :P

Not to mention, Japan did everything in their power to erase any evidence of what happened, and still don't acknowledge it.
I'm going to leave off with this. I wasn't there, and I'm not fortunate enough to have a grandparent or relative who was alive during the time to tell me about what they saw.
I think it's safe to say that none of us were there first hand, and so almost everything in this thread is speculation, which I'm pretty sure can go without saying.
The bush thing...well he said there was WMD's in Iraq...and there wasn't and it was one of the big reasons we went there. There wasn't any...so....yah
Now we have to look at what your definition of Justice is.
And read that book if you want to know what I'm talking about with George Bush.
In case you don't know, Vincent Bugliosi was the man who won the court case sentencing Charles Manson to life in prison.
Now back to the Justice thing.
I think the 5th definition best suits the examples we have been discussing here.
5. the administering of deserved punishment or reward.
If so, then should we all rise for judge Psyopz to administer the proper justice for all the petty thieves and major felons?
What about the war crimes the United States has committed over the years? When is action going to be taken to these guys? It's not going to happen, because of the good ol' American double standard.
Also, I'm German-American. Perhaps I should be deported to for because my parents are German, huh?
And here's some statistical evidence for showing that Hitler wasn't the worst dictator. I'm not defending him, I'm just saying that people need to grow up and move on. That's what this guy did.
