Been watching a few YouTubes about nazi hunters—the latest the several who hunted Klaus Barbie, the Butcher of Lyon. You think “does it matter?” that nazis are hunted down 30, 40 years after WWII? I think it is (or was, can’t be any left alive now) because evil does rise to the top and knowledge that they will be hunted down and brought to justice will stop the nazi atrocities from being repeated.

There is still antisemitism in the world, other minorities are hated by others. There are still economic cycles (the economic troubles of the Weimar Republic had a lot to do with the nazis taking over) and now AGW is going to be the pressure cooker of these hatreds.

I don't know. What's a NAZI? What are those Serbians who massacred Bosnians by the ton and the Hutus who did the same to the Tutsis? Many are still bragging about their dirty deeds. Pol Pot was pardoned for his atrocities and he died free and peaceful. What do we think about that?

Pardoning mass murderers makes it easy for someone else to do the same thing. OTOH autocracy and dictatorship is on the rise.

I'm with you on that, I just don't understand why we need to restrict or conclude all parallels with "nazis". There are many others to choose from on both sides of the "right" and "left".

My reason for supporting the hunt for mass murderers (nazis or otherwise) no matter how old they are is that I think they deserve to spend the rest of their free lives looking over their shoulders. And if they are caught the authorities should do what they please with the blighters: pardon, prison, or the chop.

The word nazi is there because the examples I posted were nazis.

Any massmurdering arsehole can be discussed here.

German Nazism wasn't eliminated, it just went undergound.

Nazi hunting by Americans is hypocrisy.

Lt. William Calley who murdered 500 Vietnamese women, children and old people didn't spend a day in jail.

There are many old people living in the USA who lynched black Americans of all genders and ages and there is no evidence that the government will seek retribution.

US Navy Commander Will Rogers who shot down an Iranian civil airliner murdering 290 civilians in 1988 even got a promotion for murdering civilians.

Oh, come on! Must you be so honest?

Only for starters. You missed the "Tuskeegee Experiment".
