I know this may inflame some people, but I wanted to see how people would react to this, as this is how I feel on the matter.
I do not support the NAZIs or anything but the entire trial seems kind of rediculous.
There were 4 charges waged agaist the NAZI defendants.
I. Conspiracy To Wage A War Of Agression.
II. Waging A War of Agression, or "Crimes Against Peace"
III. War Crimes
IV. Crimes Agaist Humanity
I am not doubting that these were commited. The problem I have with all this is that the trail was overseen by a joint panel of Soviet, American and
The Soviets were as guilty as Germany for all 4 of those counts during the course of World War II. They joined in the invasion of Poland, and they
invaded Finland. Stalin killed more of his own people than Hitler did. How could they possibly justify punishing the NAZIs for doing the same.
The British at the time had the largest empire of all time. Your telling me they did commit any wars of agression to get it? As for charge IV, the
British "invented" the concentration camp during the Boer war less than 50 years prior, wher ethey stuck and starved Boer woman and children in
order to get the men to stop fighting.
The Americans were the closest to being innocent of the charges they laid upon the NAZIs, but they mericlessly bombed German cities and Japanese
cities and killed hundreds of thousands in both countries. ALthough these countries brought it upon themselves, that does not justify civilian
deaths, and contrary to popular belief, Japan surrendered due to Russia finally declaring war on them, and they new they could not fight and win on
both fronts. The japanses leaders thought at the time that Hiroshima and Nagisaki where the results of a huge air riad, similar to the firebombing of
Tokyo, which killed more than 100 000 people, more than either Nuclear bomb did. The nuking of Hiroshima and Nagisaki was a moot point..
It all seems like making Charles Manson the judge for Timothy McVieghs trail. War is hell, but a trail?
Let me know what your think of this all
