I noted on the 'post your favorite comments here' thread that the President of Iran was in attendance at a 'conference' of Holocaust Deniers.
Where were the fathers and Brothers of Iran's President Ahmadinejad during the holocaust?
I note our own "Grand Dragon: David Duke" was in attendance at the conference.
The japanese failure to acknowledge the "Rape of Nanking" is at least only self denial on a nationwide scale, and they are not proseletizing their view of reality, if you will.
I have a sequence of pictures taken in Germany from the time of the De Nazification Program. A woman laughed after being forced to watch films of the camps by the British occupiers,
The Brits sent her back in to the theater being used and would not let her leave until all trace of the insane sense of humor was eradicated.
Ahmedinejad and Duke would probably claim the films were fakes and decry 'the inhumane treatment of an innocent civilian ' by the nasty Imperialists.
I note that in several cases on Palestine's beaches even when ordered to shoot Jewish evacuees Tommies asked themselves if they were "bloody Nazis'. Their answer was to ground their rifle butts and stand mute.
Good on you boys!!!!
A soldier in any army of any country should be on notice that they "are on their own" legally if they obey unlawful orders.
I pray we can make this precedent last ad infinitum.
I assure everyone that the set of photos, and many others, has been in my family's possession for 60 years.
