    Fortunately, not everyone of the era was blind to the blatant hypocrisy of these policies.

    I think this event goes to show that the so-called "good war" was not a battle of good vs. evil, but merely a showdown between rival governments as all wars are, and that the Allies had no more regard for human suffering than did Adolf Hitler.

    What's the point? To blame the Allies for the suffering of European refugees after the Nazi regime was defeated? It's an insane argument.

    There's nothing insane about it. The Allies came up with these policies and implemented them, and are therefore responsible for the consequences of those policies. That they showed absolutely no remorse and that some even had the nerve to suggest that the Germans might deserve the hardship they went through is appalling.

    The Nazi regime systematically attempted to eradicate Jews and Gypsies and homosexuals and people who did not live up to the eugenic standards that Hitler and his maniacs set and you think the Allies should show "remorse" for the outcome of the conflagration of WW2?

    The actions of the Nazis don't justify the actions of the Allies towards these Germans after the war.

    America treated the German civilians with the utmost care and comfort they could during the horrible aftermath of the liberation of Germany and France. You could include Stalinist Russia in the the list of Allies during the War. President Truman underestimated the the agenda of Russia after the War and it was a mistake in US foreign policy.

    Signing off on the expulsion of these Germans was not the "utmost care and comfort."

    Where is the evidence supporting "R.M. Douglas's" claim that the Allies forced Czechlovakians to return to Germany in cattle cars? It makes no sense unless you consider that the Soviets claimed the Czech republic and and in that case a return to Germany was better than a Soviet gulag. Pretending that the USSR continued to be an ally of the US iafter WW2 s a deliberate dishonest misinterpretation of the Allied victory in Europe.

    You are arguing with a guy that claims the Confederate States of America was not a Slave Nation and did not support slavery and use it as justification to leave the Union.

    I can handle it Gunny. I like arguing WW2 history and the more this guy promotes his wacky theories the better I like playing his game.
