If this is your stance then you clearly are missing the point I was trying to make. I was not talking about 'approving' nazism or any such thing, merely that many SS soldiers were still considered heroes, and although part of the 'Criminal Organistion' of the SS they were not criminals themselves. Therefore they deserve the title of hero just like any Red soldier gets a similar treatment dispite there criminal activities in the war, or even allied soldiers that killed and maimed German POW's are. It is not that at all, it is merely not trying to be one sided, not jumping to conclusions, not making stereotypical views based on the actions of many. Would you make similar posts about soldiers in the Red army being criminals and not deserving the title of hero? You are free to believe what you want and as you wish, but I speak nothing but the truth. Truth? the truth is simple, not every German is a Nazi, this is a fact, not every SS soldier wanted to be part of the Nazi party, as soon as you accept these facts, perhaps your posts regarding such issues will continue to be informative and not needless attacks on any member of this forum regardless of their views and opinions, you should show the same respect that others here show you.
