It appears you're not capable of thinking at all.
I'm so glad, that most of my friends haven't noticed that so far...
Too bad your nazi grandpa was smarter, probably killed a jew or two, maybe even some jewish kids. Must've been nice listening to all the "good ol' stories".
Sorry. No stories. Both died before I could ask them. One fought on the East border, survived and spent a few years in Siberia. The other one, who actually WAS a fan of the Nazis (the simpleton kind, never was involved in the blood business though), left my grandmother and later went to the US. Never got to know him. Not that I'd care for that jerk.
It's funny how you start calling out Mexicans on their Aztec adventures, that happened hundreds of years ago, your grandfather ruthlessly murdering jewish kids happened less than a century ago boy, take the shame like a man and STFU.
For the victims involved, where is the difference? When the Romans came accross a resistent city, who wouldn't surrender, they often burned it down. Including women and children. The world is full of terrors. I don't want to take away your Anti-German hatred. Go ahead & keep it, if it holds you warm at night. But the world is no bit safer elsewhere...
I hope I haven't caught the wrong end of a fiendishly humourus inside joke but, I think that the german fella (sorry I'm terrible at remembering names- beautiful country by the way- what part are you from?) was just kidding around, you see what a lot of people find funny is to take the basis of someones argument and act like they are using the same argument but, from their perspective to expose the idiocy of the first persons argument if you get my drift.
You see, he wasn't actually saying he disliked jews or blacks or mexicans or even comparing them to the nazi's, what he did do was make a series of racist statements to compare with the fairly ludicrous view that you had already posted and then he used that comparison to make it look ludicrous (very effectively imo).
WWI was the fault of a mixture of the German governments mixture of over confidence, entrenched superiority complexes and a simple lack of adequate planning (schlieffen plan was pure idiocy) aswell as the other european nations isolation of germany and austria as well as other territorial squabbles and a general want for the 'glory' of war by all the sides. So, blaming germany soley is just a bit silly.
The second world war wasn't the fault or every german, it was the fault of many germans however, although the US could have done more than appease Hitler and Britain could have started earlier. Although, the US in conjunction with the unfortunate inferiority complex that the UK had to the US brought about the death of millions and millions of germans and jewish citizens (you can thank General Eisenhower for that).
Apologies for the lack of grammatical accuracy and style.
I believe, WWI was what large fractions in Europe actually wanted. Of course they had different outcomes in mind.
As for WWII, it founded on the pain and humiliation of the German people, an insufficient political system and the global financial crisis in the late 20s. "The people" felt hurt and weak, so they fell for promises of glory and strength.
I think, it's a tragically impressive tale of human mass psychology, which should keep us on our toes. At least those of us, who don't just pass blame to a race, a satan or "all who think different". Like the Nazis did.
