Do you think about the same millions of Americans who admire him and who
voted for him as people who glorify war criminals???
I do, and I still don't get it how participation in a failed and unjust war ended up being a test of American patriotism.
I just take the same right for myself as every other nation does..to hold up
the respect for all soldiers and their sacrifices!
There were sacrifices by Poles, Brits, French, Belgians, Dutch, Jews, Russians and others. Those sacrifices resulted from a collective insanity of the German nation which decided to sacrifice other nations for some Lebensraum. These were the REAL SACRIFICES. Inflicted on millions by German insanity.
In 1939 Germans went on a ruthless stealing rampage and killing spree. The sacrifices were those of their victims. German soldiers who died during the plunder and murder deserved no less. Their deaths were accidents during a heist.
Germans were criminals, about half of Europe were the victims. The victims eventually prevailed and killed some of those who wanted to kill them. If you can't see a difference between the criminal and the victim we'll never understand each other.
Yeah...that's where your nice anecdote came from about the poor german soldier who got beaten down by their superior for being unpolite to a farmer, right?
That German officer was not following the policy.
And that Franek got treated well as he became a POW??? Just a lone incident???
Franek was a US soldier. Poles were considered Untermensch, unworthy to live. His incident wasn't lone on the other side of Europe. It would have been very unusual on the Eastern front.
