If they want to fight then maybe they should do it away from the people they are pretending to care about and defend.

I don't blame a US Marine one bit if he accidentally kills a civilian while he's shooting his way out of an ambush.

I do blame anybody who takes on the job of hunting down a certain group of humans (regardless of faith of orientation), abducting them from their homes, and then purposely shipping them to a literal slaughter house to be executed in mass. Thats a little different.

You do understand that service in the US military is voluntary? You do understand we live in the day in age where you can get on the internet and find out whether or not that war you're thinking about fighting is justified or not? So you don't blame them? Warped some people are.

You blame civilians for being around a firefight that shouldn't have even been happening seeing as the whole war was based on lies? Again... how warped some people are.

People protesting Vietnam seem to have more balls than people today. Amazing, a time when the masses were more susceptible to brainwashing yet they were able to bring an unjust war to an end. Here we are with all the information at our fingertips, we know who the real perps are and yet, we still have people who defend what's wrong. Bizarro world.

He may well have been executed for not following orders, but choosing your own life over 15,000+ others?

Some of those 15,700 may have still been alive today had it not been for him "following his orders".

If guilty, he should be punished, he never gave those 15,700 people a chance, why should society give him a chance just because he is 97?

Why should society not give him a chance? If society condemns people who make mistakes in their lives, the only thing that will happen is perpetuating the cycle of not forgiving. Then people will feel they have to take action into their own hands, more people will get hurt, and the cycle continues.

The cycle is old and outdated. Its time to move on. The past is the past. Nothing will change it except how you want the future to turn out.

He wasn't even at Auschwitz so how can he be held accountable for what happened to them? He was a police commander in charge of a Jewish ghetto in Kassa, Hungary his responsibility ended when they were shipped off. The last Nazi they arrested was acquitted so I really don't see this man being successfully charged with anything.

Most of Nazi mass murdering was done outside of Auschwitz.

A substantial part of the mass murder took place totally outside of any camps.

The tragedy is not that a 97 is put on trial. It is well deserved.

The tragedy is that this guy was able to live comfortably and in peace for the last 67.

Cold War politics really #ed up the prosecution of the men on the spot, who actually did the killing. My take is this: Either you have the IMT sentencing those giving the order and then have other trials that deal with the men on the spot, or you don't convict anyone at all. I'm all for the former approach. Expiration by limitation is not granted to war criminals.
