Germany and its past

Posted on August 13, 2016 at 6:25 AM

I am sick and tired of getting to hear about the special guilt Germans have towards history. Yes, we know that and Germany has paid a heavy price for its role in both World Wars - and still does. None of those responsible for allied forces war crimes has ever been held accountable to my knowledge. Just to mention some: Bombing big cities like Dresden was nothing else but mass murder among civilians - and they knew it. The same with Hiroshima and Nagasaki. On with the list: Many murders and rapes among the population, pogroms, robbing Germans in the East of their property and chasing them away (or worse), neglecting all the other forces behind the World Wars (and any other wars) which were way more than just Germans, (ab)using Germany to this day as military base and who knows what else, pointing at our special responsibility whenever someone needs money, forgetting one's own past (crimes against blacks and first nation people, crimes in colonies, all the things stolen in and from other countries) and many, many more. Wipe away the dirt before your own door before you keep on bugging us.
