Here is an email I received in response to one of my essays.
I am against war criminals. I hate you because you are a war criminal, not because you are an American or a soldier. My partner is American as is my ex. I have nothing against soldiers who defend their country from invasion. I despise ones that attack other countries unprovoked, as you do.
This honeslty disheartens me to say the least. I currently serve in the U.S. Army as a journalist and most of the topics you propose are outright inaccurate with the truth, I do however, agree with you about being against the war.
You must have a good editor. I have never seen a professional writer before with such atrocious spelling and punctuation.
But aside from that, how is there any correlation with Nazis and American Soldiers?
Very simple. I have repeated it hundreds of times on my website and public posts, I am surprised you missed it. Both American soldiers and Nazi soldiers are brazen international war criminals. All the Nazis hanged at Nuremberg were charged with the same crime — namely aiding and abetting an aggressive war. You are and your buddies in the US military are all guilty of aiding and abetting two illegal aggressive wars. America attacked both Afghanistan and Iraq without provocation. You, Mr. Dangel, are an international war criminal, a junior version of Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi minister of propaganda. You may eventually face prosecution leading to solitary life imprisonment. Recall than Nazi propagandists who did not kill anyone directly were also charged with war crimes. A war criminal is just a type of criminal. In my book you are in the same category as purse snatchers, rapist and child abusers. In other words, you don’t deserve much respect. Your protestations of innocence are no more to be taken seriously than the protestations of a child molester claiming he did nothing wrong. You are a criminal. Of course you have psychological devices to fool yourself to avoid suffering guilt.
You must be absolutley mad. I agree with you that some of the Soldiers aren’t the best citizens in the world, but sir have you ever been to war before.
I consider you worse than slime because you don’t have the excuse of being a cretin like most of the soldiers who write me. You know perfectly well that aggressive war is wrong. You know that torture is wrong. You know that using banned weapons are wrong. You know that killing civilians is wrong. You know that maiming children is wrong. You know that violating the Geneva conventions is wrong. You know that Shock & Awe is just another name for terrorism.
Terrorism : killing civilians with the intent of changing their political affiliation.
~ Caleb Carr (1955-08-02 age:62), military historian
I would modify that definition slightly. I don’t think nuts who act completely on their own should count as terrorists. I think they need to be associated with an organisation to count as terrorists.
But you use your journalistic skills to sell the idea to the cretins who enlist and who fund the war that when Americans commit even worse crimes than the Nazis did, it does not count. American shit does not stink.
Do you even know the horrors that some of these young men face. Statistics continually show an increase in PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), and when people are faced with perilous situations thier actions and thought process becomes clouded. I have served and been beside great americans that care for the Iraqi people.
Since you are offering excuses, you seem, at least on some level, to realise what you and your fellows are doing is both wrong and illegal. Those soldiers chose to go to Iraq to kill people for sport, not to defend their country. Every horrible thing that happens to them as a consequence they more than deserve.
I have been inside the hospitals, I have witnessed all the great things these men and women do for the people of Iraq.
Of all the cheek. You bastards violated the Geneva conventions and bombed all the Iraqi hospitals, electric plants, water treatment plants and sewage plants to rubble. Now you want to take credit for building a few propaganda hospitals after the manner of the Russians and Chinese. If American domination is so wonderful, why is Iraq, a tiny nation less than a tenth the size of the USA, fighting so hard to successfully shake of its yoke? Why are they willing to resort even to suicide bombing to get rid of you bastards.
The truth is President Bush is probably the worst president in history, but despite this fact, don’t make the american soldier out to be a bad guy. Most of the americans that serve are good people and they hate the war just as much as you.
If they did not approve of the killing they would not have enlisted. Nobody held a gun to their heads to make them commit war crimes the way the Nazis did. They volunteered knowing full well what they were in for. They have far less excuse than the Nazi soldiers.
As a soldier you are required to follow orders, do your job and do the best job you can do and thats what most of us do.
You are 60 years out of date. I was just following orders did not cut it at Nuremberg and it does not cut it today. Have you conveniently forgotten Mai Lai too?
Being a soldier, regardless of what situation you government asks you to get into is an experience i wouldn’t trade in for the world. Please check you facts and get things straight. Don’t waste your time providing people with false information.
What false information? Quote my alleged errors of fact. You did not bother to refute even a single fact that I have asserted on my website or newsgroup post. All you have done is whine and emote in vague generalities, complaining that I unfairly hold you is extremely low esteem. You ingenuously pretend that you are totally unaware that you have done anything wrong. How stupid do you think your readers are?
In your subsequent voluminous ramblings (extensively quoting irrelevant legal documents that you have not read and have not even the skill to understand) that I am not about to post here, you seem to think you must be innocent because there are millions of US soldiers involved in the atrocities. Your moral calculus is off kilter. By your reasoning the atrocities of the Nazis were blameless because millions of Germans participated, drunk driving is just fine because millions do it and abusing children is blameless because millions have done it.
A prima facie case can be made that the United States is guilty of the supreme crime against humanity, that being an illegal war of aggression against a sovereign nation.
~ Benjamin Ferencz (1920-03-11 age:97) Chief Prosecutor for the United States in The Einsatzgruppen Case at the Nazi Nuremberg War Crimes Trials.
The invasion and occupation of Iraq is illegal.
~ Kofi Annan (1938-04-08 age:79)Secretary General and Boutros Boutros-Ghali (1922-11-14 2016-02-16 age:93) former Secretary General of the U.N.
I think in this case international law stood in the way of doing the right thing.
~ Richard Perle (1941-09-16 age:76), 2003-11-20, Pentagon hawk, cat-stroking, Ernst Stavro Blofeld, James Bond villain pasty lookalike, admitting the Iraq war is illegal.
You naïvely believe your propaganda briefings that the American invasion of Iraq is legal. Guess who disagrees with you?, both Boutros Boutros-Ghali and Kofi Annan. I trust you know who they are. Surely they ought to know more than you do about what is legal in international law. Read up about Nuremberg. A friend of a friend, Benjamin Ferencz, Chief Prosecutor for the United States in The Einsatzgruppen Case at the Nazi Nuremberg War Crimes Trials. Nazis were surprised outraged as you will be when they were charged with capital crimes.

|A book about world federalism and how it is necessary to prevent global war, though it has quite a bit of history about Ferencz’s experiences as Chief Prosecutor for the United States in The Einsatzgruppen Case at the Nazi Nuremberg War Crimes Trials. This book is out of print.|
|Greyed out stores probably do not have the item in stock. Try looking for it with a bookfinder.|
You also seem to think because long dead Saddam commited some minor infractions gives you the right to invade, toss the Geneva conventions aside and plunder their country in a never-ending war. You are one sick, evil puppy. Not only do you commit evil personally, you have dedicated your life into seducing others to do likewise.
