[QUOTE=Zezibesh;35743127]Then why aren't we prosecuting allied or Japanese war criminals? Isn't the law same for everyone?[/QUOTE] We did persecute the Japanese war criminals, some got away with what they did so we could use their research though, as was the same with some Nazi war criminals. As for allied ones, I don't really know of many allied war criminals so I couldn't comment.
There's no proof he's a war criminal. It's just speculations. Not to mention, if we get all war criminals, why aren't we arresting all these heads who order attacks that result in so many innocent deaths? Oh right, cause we're fighting bad people and since we are the good ones, we do not commit crimes.
If he really is a Nazi i bet he spends each night regretting what he did or maybe he suffers from nightmares and WWII flashbacks
The fact that this guy pretty much ignores anything related to WW2 most likely means that it's caused him a huge deal of distress and regret from what most likely he was forced to do or be shot for not following a order.
i wonder if these people would hunt israeli settlers who commit horrific crimes on the palestinian people?
[QUOTE=Lankist;35737655]no. the Tokyo firebombings killed ~125,000 people The blast of the two nukes alone killed ~200,000+, not to mention radiation, looting, and the general anarchy that followed. The act of dropping those bombs was an act of evil if anything at all could be called such a thing. We are the only people in the history of the world to ever use those weapons as belligerents. The bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki should be a mark of great shame upon the United States and all of the allied nations. Of course, people still defend it because it's impossible that we did something wrong, too.[/QUOTE] It was a necessary act of evil considering the millions of people who where projected to die if an invasion of main land Japan was to happen. Which is why people defend it, not because it was okay because we did it, but because it was unfortunately necessary.

Best to deal with the ones we can get at.
Chasing down old nazi soldiers for something that happened that long ago is so pointless.

[QUOTE=Lachz0r;35743914]no way in hell is nuking cities full of people 'unfortunately necessary' noooo waaay[/QUOTE] Would you rather millions die in the inevitable invasion?
[QUOTE=carcarcargo;35743804]Not much we can do about war criminals who are in countries that support them without invading. Best to deal with the ones we can get at.[/QUOTE] Why and how? What are you going to do to a 90 year old nazi who lives a peaceful and productive life? Put him in jail? Why? [editline]28th April 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=carcarcargo;35743927]Would you rather millions die in the inevitable invasion?[/QUOTE] Nuking a more remote place would've probably stopped the war too. Though history is history and discussing alternatives seems pointless.
[QUOTE=AceOfDivine;35743929]Why and how? What are you going to do to a 90 year old nazi who lives a peaceful and productive life? Put him in jail? Why?[/QUOTE] Adolf Einchmann and many other Nazi officials also went off to live somewhat peaceful lives, but what if we'd let them get away with it. That would tell all future war criminals that as long as they're good at hiding and stop their war crimes at the hint that they are beginning to lose, they can get away with what they did. You just can't give off the message. [editline]28th April 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=AceOfDivine;35743929]Why and how?

Nagasaki could possibly be called unnecessary however, considering the Japanese were already willing to surrender after the first bomb, with the second being more to scare the Russians.
[QUOTE=carcarcargo;35743927]Would you rather millions die in the inevitable invasion?[/QUOTE] no because that wouldn't have happened. man, don't you see how awful it is to kill the shit out of fuckloads of people with goddamn nuclear bombs and then radiation poisoning shitloads more for generations simply because some assholes projected how many people they thought would die otherwise? i mean come on, there was no reason to even invade japan anyway at the end of the war they were an island nation with a destroyed fleet what could they possibly do???
[QUOTE=Lankist;35737544]apart from the fact that they wiped two civilian cities completely off the map, killing more people in an instant than all the torture japan committed against combatants combined? [editline]27th April 2012[/editline] terrifying fact: initially, Truman was going to bomb the capital (and, you know, the emperor), but a rainstorm was approaching, so on the spur of the moment he decided to bomb a civilian target instead. The bombing of civilian cities was not planned. It was circumstance. A last-minute decision while the bomb was in-flight that wiped thousands of innocent civilians off the face of this Earth. Because Truman didn't want a few Americans to turn on the windshield wipers, he killed thousands of innocent foreign nationals. Don't pretend that isn't monstrous.[/QUOTE] You ether have bad information or are pulling stuff out of your ass. Both of the city's that where bombed where pre planned bombing targets. Its true that Kokura was the first choice for the dropping of Fat Man but due to cloud coverage it was decided to change targets to Nagasaki, which was the second choice to Kokura. Tokyo was never intended to be the target of ether bombing missions.

If that would have happened then even more would likely have died. Don't get me wrong I'd rather no one had had to die, but I'm not going to condemn them for using the bombs when they had very limited options.

Nobody really knew how devastating nuclear weapons would be at that point and after it was demonstrated they pretty much brought about the somewhat peaceful era we live in today were large advanced nations are no longer constantly at war with each other through fear of nuclear weapons.

[QUOTE=carcarcargo;35744205]I have no problem with radiation, helps treat cancer and what not.[/QUOTE] it also gives cancer and it also makes cancer worse and sometimes itself is worse than cancer
[QUOTE=Lachz0r;35744267]it also gives cancer and it also makes cancer worse and sometimes itself is worse than cancer[/QUOTE] Very rarely I'd assume.
[QUOTE=carcarcargo;35744344]Very rarely I'd assume.[/QUOTE] i dunno man people in nagasaki and hiroshima still getting born with deformities and developing cancer
[QUOTE=Lachz0r;35744267]it also gives cancer and it also makes cancer worse and sometimes itself is worse than cancer[/QUOTE]Don't forget horrible mutations from birth
[QUOTE=Lachz0r;35744357]i dunno man people in nagasaki and hiroshima still getting born with deformities and developing cancer[/QUOTE] Well I'm fairly sure that was an unforeseen consequence, I'm not going to hold them to account for something they didn't see coming.
[QUOTE=AceOfDivine;35744368]Don't forget horrible mutations from birth[/QUOTE] damn man read the post above you
So he was a male adult in Germany, meaning he was forced into military service. He was ordered to fire at people trying to escape, and if he didn't he'd most likely be killed. Clearly he's responsible for the massacre
the title is right i really am talking to a dumbass haha just kidding man dont worry [editline]29th April 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=carcarcargo;35744383]Well I'm fairly sure that was an unforeseen consequence, I'm not going to hold them to account for something they didn't see coming.[/QUOTE] i dunno dude ain't we known since marie curie that radiation fucks you up? and i'm fairly certain they knew what was coming when they decided to drop the most deadliest weapon ever created on civilian targets
[QUOTE=Lachz0r;35744415] i dunno dude ain't we known since marie curie that radiation fucks you up? and i'm fairly certain they knew what was coming when they decided to drop the most deadliest weapon ever created on civilian targets[/QUOTE] Yes, they knew it would stop war and millions of death if land invasion was to happen
[QUOTE=AceOfDivine;35744460]Yes, they knew it would stop war and millions of death if land invasion was to happen[/QUOTE] there is literally no way they could know if japan would have kept fighting or if a land invasion would have even been necessary or blah blah blah. they 100% knew that if they dropped 2 nuclear bombs on 2 cities full of people they would kill shitloads of people are you really trying to act like this was the lesser of two evils?
