    iNTERNAL REPRESSION STILL DOESN’T SEEM TO MATTER TO SO-CALLED CARING DEMOCRACIES…BUT BEWARE…RED FASCISM IS JUST AS VICIOUS AND EVIL AS ANY OTHER OTHER COLOUR FASCISM…(REMEMBER pOL pOT?) THE NUREMBERG TRIALS WERE OBVIOUSLY A WASTE OF TIME…OTHERWISE WHAT IS AN AMERICAN PRESIDENT DOING IN THE CAPITAL OF A LATTER DAY TOTALITARIAN STATE??? wHY DID THE NAZIS HANG IF AMERICA CAN DEAL WITH CHINESE MASS MURDERERS???

    tHEN AGAIN, THE RUSSIANS INVADED POLAND ALONG WITH THE GERMANS IN SEPT 1939 AND THEN STOOD IN JUDGEMENT OVER gERMANY AT THE SO-CALLED “cRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY TRIALS” AT NUREMBERG.

    AND YOU WONDER WHY SO MANY PEOPLE WORLDWIDE ARE CYNICAL ABOUT “JUSTICE AT NUREMBURG”???

    This is a great piece of history, but it would be helpful if there were (English) subtitles. This is especially true given that there is a voiceover component to this video.
