Yeah, the holocaust wasn't a good enough reason to have fought? ok
No, clearly it wasn't- otherwise, the US would've declared war on Germany. They didn't. American involvement in the war was because Japan attacked Pearl Harbor; it had nothing to do with the Holocaust. That's just a post-war rationalization to lionize the leaders who lead the country in the most destructive conflict in human history.And if genocide is reason enough for war, why are troops not rolling up to Xi Jinping's door right now?
I find it disgusting you actually don't think WWII was a just war. Just wow.
And I find it disgusting that you think there IS such a thing as a "just war". I guess the propaganda's done its job.

Probably one of the people complaining about Prince Philip coverage, a HERO and a national gem.
They don't call it the GREATEST generation for nothing
I never heard anyone calling a generation the greatest.But either way, people of all generations will grow old and die. And you get a chart like this with a gentle curve.
what made him one
He fought in WW2 and was a prisoner of war. He came home and spent the rest of his life taking care of his family an running his own business. He never had much of a formal education. He quit school to join the army, but had was pretty smart and had great people skills. When he died he left a big void in my life.
How did he become a POW/where? Sorry to hear... Was he older than your mom somewhat given your age?
He was in Germany. My parents were on the old side when they got married and even older when they had my brother and me.
And no one was married before that? What was being a POW like?
He worked on a farm. He said that the only time he feared for his life was just before the war ended. It was obvious the Nazis were going to lose. He was working in a field when a bunch of American planes flew overhead. He said that he just kept his head down and prayed he would not be shot.
That’s because Germany started both world wars and committed unthinkable acts.
@ChefPapiChulo still it was none of the US business, and we had some reasons to occupy countries that were Germany and not Poland or Austria, or Czech Republic. The US literally genocided their native population for their land. They aren't any better.
While the acts committed against native Americans were cruel and inhumane, that is false. Native Americans were not "genocided." Germany's casus belli was false, and Nazi Germany's acts caused world wide destruction. Being a Nazi in Germany or praising Nazi is a crime there for a reason. I suggest you burry the hatchet.
@ChefPapiChulo I buried it because we control Europe anywaysGermany has its rightful place. Now we just need to sever relations between US and Europe to be a superpower.
High hopes, a bit delusional.
@ChefPapiChulo still, America and Europe are two separate worlds and they shouldn interact with each other.
mind taking this test?Are you willing to take a Rorschach Test? ↗
A lot of those men would’ve been killed if they refused to serve. I’m sure at least some of those vets were good human beings with a conscience.
